Your Path to Cloud-native: Containers, Microservices, and DevOps

Those who are agile and fast enough to quickly put high-quality apps into the hands of their users will gain a true competitive advantage in the digital era. But to get the kind of speed and flexibility to do so, a cloud-native approach to app development is required.

In “Your Path to Cloud-native: Containers, Microservices, and DevOps,” industry leaders discuss how to accelerate app development through gradual shifts in culture, processes, and technologies. Join us on October 11, and hear from the experts as they reveal how to bring legacy apps to the cloud—and achieve faster and more efficient cloud-native app delivery.

 

Live-event date: Thursday, October 11, 2018 | 1 p.m. ET

KEYNOTE 1: The future of cloud-native application development

Cloud native describes a way of building applications on a cloud platform to iteratively discover and deliver business value. We now have access to the same technology that the large internet companies pioneered and used to their advantage to dominate their respective markets. What challenges arise when we start building applications to take advantage of this new technology?

In this keynote, we'll cover what it means to build applications with microservices and how concepts like service mesh have evolved to solve some of those problems. We’ll also discuss how the next iteration of application development with Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) and serverless computing fit into this landscape.

Attendees should come away from this event with an understanding of:

  • What cloud-native application development means and how to deliver better software faster to create better business outcomes.
  • How service mesh technology like Istio can solve the challenges introduced with cloud-native application architecture.
  • How the next iteration of applications can use FaaS and how serverless computing fits in with a world of monoliths, microservices, and APIs.

 

Burr Sutter, director, Developer Experience, Red Hat

He is a lifelong developer advocate, community organizer, technology evangelist and a featured speaker at technology events around the globe. He has been a Java Champion since 2005 and a former president of the Atlanta Java User Group. Burr founded the DevNexus conference—now the second largest Java event in the U.S.—with the aim of making access to the world’s leading developers affordable to the developer community. When not speaking globally, Burr is the passionate creator and orchestrator of highly-interactive live demo keynotes at Red Hat Summit, the company’s premier annual event.

 

KEYNOTE 2: Simplify microservices with service mesh technology

Numerous challenges are introduced with cloud-native applications. Migrating to a microservices architecture is no easy feat: There are exponentially more services to monitor, numerous API surfaces to secure, and a plethora of traffic to manage between services. You and your team need help, fast, to stay ahead of the game. 

In this keynote, you will explore Istio, an open source tool to connect and manage microservices that is becoming an industry-leading service mesh for Kubernetes. You will dive into how Istio provides a method of integrating services like load balancing, mutual service-to-service authentication, transport layer encryption, and application telemetry requiring minimal—if any—changes to the code of individual services. 

Attendees should come away from the event with an understanding of: 

  • How Istio can simplify development and the pain points it will solve.
  • The service-mesh layer of the Kubernetes stack.
  • What’s new in Istio 1.0.
  • What the future looks like.
