DETAILS:

Talk 1
Title: Continuous Kubernetes Security From Your CI+CD Pipeline
Speaker: Gadi Naor, Founder & CTO at Alcide

Abstract: Harness your CD pipeline for your Kubernetes Security.
Dev & DevOps constantly commit changes to Helm charts, automation scripts, CRDs or core Kubernetes resources. As a result, configuration drifts can happen when your environment changes which can introduce security risks or even service availability risks we would like to avoid.
In this session, we will dive into use cases that enable multiple stakeholders driving changes and have friction-free guardrails that make your DevSecOps owners happy. Security & service availability are based on many layers of the development process and mastering the layers is crucial to building a reliable product and reliable service releases.

Bio: Gadi Naor has 18 years of engineering experience, from kernel-based development through leading development of cybersecurity products starting his professional career at Check Point. Gadi then joined Altor Networks, a pioneer in virtualized data center security, later acquired by Juniper Networks. Prior to Alcide, Gadi co-founded Fitfully, at which he served as CTO.

Talk 2
Title: An Introduction to the Ballerina Programming Language
Speaker: Anjana Fernando, Director at WSO2

Abstract: Ballerina is a cloud-native programming language, tailored for network-awareness and microservices development. Ballerina also has CI/CD deployment options such as Jenkins, Travis, and also, the latest addition of GitHub Actions makes it much simpler to define your workflows for creating build/deploy pipelines. In this session, Anjana will show how the new open source programming language can be used to implement a productive developer experienced in building modern cloud-native applications.

Bio: Anjana has built up expertise in data analytics and enterprise integration by leading several products at WSO2. His latest venture is his role in the Ballerina project, where he has been involved extensively in the design and implementation of the language and its runtime, and now primarily works on its ecosystem engineering and evangelism activities. Anjana also presents frequently in events, such as ApacheCon, API World, WSO2Con, KubeCon, BallerinaCon, DeveloperWeek, and many tech meetups.

Talk 3
Title: Keptn – Automated Continuous Operations for Cloud-Native Applications
Speaker: Juergen Etzlstorfer, Technology Strategist at Dynatrace

Abstract: Keptn is an open-source fabric for declarative, autonomous operation. Keptn provides automated quality gates based on service-level objectives to evaluate each microservice before promoting it to the next stage to prevent breaking environments and eventually ensure that your production is up and running continuously. Furthermore, Keptn does allow automating operational tasks by taking care of scaling, rolling back or restarting your services in response to any issues in production.

Bio: Jürgen is a core contributor to the Keptn open-source project and responsible for the strategy and integration of self-healing techniques and tools into the Keptn framework. He also loves to share his experience, most recently at conferences on Kubernetes based technologies and automation.
