Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World (Part 1) & Making Agile Work (Part 2)  (Tent B)

60 minutes

Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World (Part 1) & Making Agile Work (Part 2)

Architectural control in an increasingly Cloudy World: Public cloud usage in Sweden is pervasive but design questions remain: - What happens if the situation changes, can I design for change? Do I want to lock into a single cloud vendor? How do I build a consistent developer experience when I have more than a single cloud provider? Making Agile Work: Agile is everywhere. But what are the key elements of getting Agile to work and what is missing?

Increase developer productivity on Kubernetes with OpenShift  (Tent A)

60 minutes

Increase developer productivity on Kubernetes with OpenShift

Kubernetes has become the standard control plane for containers and containerised applications. But Kubernetes was built for the needs of IT Operations, not developers. In order for code to be deployed, developers need to be able to leverage the benefits of Kubernetes without requiring them to develop a platform skillset. OpenShift simplifies and automates the way you build, ship, and run code. In this session we'll give an overview of OpenShift and the components that make your development process simple, fun and efficient. #Kubernetes #OpenShift #Developer #DevOps #Productivity
