DevOps Summit New York offers the best DevOps education of 2015 in the world over three days

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City - will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

Join DevOps Summit Chair Andi Mann June 9-11 for three days of intense DevOps discussion and focus.

Power Panel | Balancing the 3 Pillars of DevOps - Managing People, Process, and Technology Change to Grow a DevOps Culture
Moderated by Andi Mann

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture.

In this power panel at DevOps Summit, Andi Mann will moderate a discussion on how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.

Speaker Bio: Andi Mann, Vice President of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies, has over 20 years global experience within IT departments, with software vendors, and as a leading industry analyst. He has been widely published in the New York Times, USA Today, CIO, Computerworld, and more.

A Radically Different, Cloud-Centric Development Model for Mixed Teams
By Charles K. Kendrick

Between the compelling mockups and specs produced by your analysts and designers, and the resulting application built by your developers, there is a gulf where projects fail, costs spiral out of control, and applications fall short of requirements. In this session, we present a new approach where business and development users collaborate - each using tools appropriate to their goals and expertise - to build mockups and enhance them all the way through functional prototypes, to final working applications. Learn how this approach helps you improve usability, exceed end-user expectations, and still hit project milestones.

Orchestrating Distributed Deployments with Docker and Containers
By Jerome Petazzoni

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run, any Linux application, on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures, because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism - which is precisely one of the features of Docker.

Speaker Bio: Jerome is a senior engineer at Docker, where he helps others to containerize all the things. In another life he built and operated Xen clouds when EC2 was just the name of a plane, developed a GIS to deploy fiber interconnects through the French subway, managed commando deployments of large-scale video streaming systems in bandwidth-constrained environments such as conference centers, operated and scaled the dotCloud PAAS, and various other feats of technical wizardry. When annoyed, he threatens to replace things with a very small shell script.

Beyond POC: Processing Metrics, Logs, Traces... at Scale
By Otis Gospodnetic

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It's easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) - you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In this talk I'll share the architecture and decisions behind our services for handling large volumes of performance metrics, traces, logs, anomaly detection, alerts, etc. We'll follow data from its sources, its collection, aggregation, storage, and visualization. The talks will also cover the overview of some of the relevant technologies and their strengths and weaknesses, such as HBase, Elasticsearch, Kafka.

Speaker Bio: Otis Gospodnetic is a co-author of Lucene in Action (1st and 2nd edition). He's a Lucene and Solr committer and has expertise in Elasticsearch.

Containers: Don't Skeu Them Up. Use Microservices Instead.
By Gordon Haff

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn't actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as applying more broadly, to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In this session, Red Hat's Gordon Haff will discuss why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy sever virtualization workflows and architectures.

Speaker Bio: Gordon Haff is senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat. Prior to Red Hat, Gordon wrote hundreds of research notes and was frequently quoted in publications like The New York Times on a wide range of IT topics, as well as advising clients on product and marketing strategies.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger: Application Delivery with Enterprise DevOps
By Andi Mann

Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, "I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline"; "I can make it better, but it will cost more"; "I can deliver faster, but not with these specs"; or "I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer"? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will abandon your brand forever for a slow response or a privacy breach; competitors will steal critical markets if you cannot deliver on time and on budget. Join this session to learn how you can leverage new technology approaches for agile parallel development, continuous delivery, and agile operations so you can (to the tune of Daft Punk), "Work It; Make It; DevOps Makes Us; Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger!"

NoOps != No Operations
Download slides ▸ Here

Shipping daily, injecting faults, and keeping an extremely high availability "without Ops"? Understand why NoOps does not mean no operations. Agile development methodologies require evolved operations to be successful.

In his keynote at DevOps Summit Silicon Valley, David Tesar, Microsoft Technical Evangelist on Microsoft Azure and DevOps, discussed how Microsoft teams that have made huge progress with a DevOps transformation effectively utilize operations staff and how challenges were overcome. Regardless of whether you are a startup or a mature enterprise, whether you are using PaaS, Micro Services, or Containerization, walk away with some practical tips where Ops can make a significant impact working with the development teams. Operational teams and functions are increasingly more important as the industry delivers software at a blazing pace.


DevOps Is Even More Important Than You Think
The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps becomes essential for any ambitious enterprise today.

This Lunchtime Power Panel at DevOps Summit was moderated by Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies. Monish Sharma, VP of Customer Success at ElasticBox; Myles Steinhauser, Software Development Engineer at Blue Box; Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell Inc.; and Mark Levy, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Serena Software go beyond the basics in a discussion of why DevOps is not only important for transformation, but is mission-critical for enterprises that want to stay in business.

DevOps: Disruptive but Essential in a Cloud Expo® Universe
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The DevOps Summit 2015 New York and Silicon Valley will be held:

DevOps Summit 2015 New York
(June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center, Manhattan)

DevOps Summit 2015 Silicon Valley
(November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center)

DevOps Summit, June 9-11, 2015, at the New York Javits Center in the heart of world's financial capital, will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of time enterprise IT professionals spend putting out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit content doubled in November from a single track last year in New York to two simultaneous tracks: "Dev" Developer Focus and "Ops" Operations Focus, as well as high impact keynotes attended by over 1,000 delegates.

We'll see you in New York City! See you in June!
