Cloud Native Machine Learning Deployments (Ed Shee, Seldon)
Until recently, the data science / machine learning field has been pretty immature in its adoption of DevOps tools and processes. That's now changing rapidly as engineering teams realise that, in order to gain any value from their ML models, they need to get them into production. In this talk, Ed will introduce the open source Seldon Core library, build a model using popular machine learning tools and deploy it to Kubernetes to handle production traffic. You will learn how to turn an ML model into a production microservice that handles REST/gRPC traffic, how to use complex model deployment techniques and how to monitor both the infrastructure and the models themselves, spotting drift and outliers as they take place.

Ed comes from a cloud computing background and is a strong believer in making deployments as easy as possible for developers. With an education in computational modelling and an enthusiasm for machine learning, Ed has blended his work in ML and cloud native computing together to cement himself firmly in the emerging field of MLOps. Organiser of Tech Ethics London and MLOps London, Ed is heavily involved in lots of developer communities and, thankfully, loves both beer and pizza. Find him @ukcloudman

"Look ma, no sidecar!" (Alessandro Vozza, solo.io)
The sidecar model of delivering service mesh to applications in a cluster has drawbacks that limited adoption at scale and performance; a new model introduced in the ambient mode of Istio aims at reducing complexity and overhead and delivering secure application networking at both L4 and L7 with zero changes needed at the pod level.

Community leader and CNCF ambassador, Alessandro has spent the last few years building cloud native infrastructures for Microsoft customers, animating the Dutch community, and training others to pass the CKx exams. He has passion for all things cloud native, he's been around open source for 25 years and recently moved to a new Developer Relations role. Twitter handle: @bongo

How to survive the Cost of Observability Crisis (Chris Cooney, Coralogix)
In recent years, cloud budgets have had to give more and more ground to the sharply increasing cost of observability. In this talk, we'll explore some of the techniques that can be employed to build an efficient Observability solution, with topics ranging from Elasticsearch cluster topologies, through to data transformation and how to beat the "data silo".

Chris Cooney has been a software engineer for 8 years, moving from Java, to React JS, to AWS and Kubernetes and now, he is the Developer Advocate for Coralogix. https://twitter.com/chris_cooney
