Session 1: "Observability with OpenTelemetry & Distributed Traces"
Being part of the Lightstep (co-founder of OpenTelemetry) journey, we would like to share with the community the benefits of OpenTelemetry & Distributed Traces: what it changes in the world of Monitoring/Observability/Application Performance Management (APM), the new capabilities and workflows it brings illustrated by examples from our customers.
Speakers: Jean-François Muller & Dennis Kuipers are technical advisors for Lightstep in the region. Lightstep is the co-founder and a major contributor to the OpenTelemetry project. A couple of years ago, Jean-François co-founded a performance engineering consulting company in Switzerland and spent a significant amount of time helping customers improve the performance of their business-critical applications. Dennis has significant experience in both worlds (Development and Operations), he worked with multiple open-source frameworks and vendor solutions to build operation platforms that included Infrastructure/Application (APM) monitoring, event management, service management, and integrations with other systems within major financial institutions.
Session 2: "Protect against unknown security vulnerabilities"
Kubernetes makes it easy to deploy and manage your cloud-native applications, and as such security becomes a challenge in a dynamic containerised environment. It is clear that your containers should not contain vulnerabilities throughout the complete supply chain - from development through to deployment with the relevant admission controls in place. In this talk, you will be shown how the NeuVector project, the first Open-Source Cloud Native Security solution can secure the complete software development lifecycle and can even protect against unknown or unpatched vulnerabilities with its zero-trust runtime security model.
Speaker: Claudio Serrano has over 30 years of experience in IT, holding different positions as Solution Architect at Financial and Telecom Institutions & at IT companies such as HPE, BMC Software, and Microfocus. Currently, he is a Pre-Sales engineer at SUSE covering the Cloud Native portfolio for the DACH region.
