A look at where computing and analytics began and where it is headed. The basis of all DevOps and development starts with our measurements. We need to understand what role analytics and metrics plays in modern computing. To find out, we look at where analytics began in the advent of computer science and where we stand today, with an eye toward the future. --- Developer, writer, speaker, musician, and Community Advocate, PJ is the founder of DevRelate.io. He is known to travel the world speaking about programming and the way people think and interact. He is also known for wearing hats.
Full talk abstract coming soon! --- Nirmal Mehta, Chief Technologist in the Strategic Innovations Group at Booz Allen Hamilton specializing in research, implementation and integration of emerging technologies to Booz Allen’s federal government client base. He leads the firms efforts in containerization and distributed application architectures, and thought leader for DevOps practices. He is passionate about Open Source, Containerization, Cloud Automation, DevOps, Data Center Transformation and integrating open-source software to push the capabilities of future IT infrastructure. He focuses on bringing leading edge technologies to enterprise systems for commercial and public sector clients.
DevOps is a key focus for the majority of his conversations, but as IT teams are under increasing pressure to demonstrate data privacy and protection with regulation like GDPR, HIPPA and SOX, among others, tonight we’ll focus on how you can combine these two areas and extend one to embrace the other without compromising on either side. Ultimately, we hope you leave today’s meetup with an understanding of how Database DevOps can ensure you continue to increase the speed of delivery, securely, without jeopardizing compliance. --- For the past 25 years Brian has worked in various roles in technology, ranging from a software engineer, database architect, IT Manager to a solutions consultant and more recently Sales Engineer at Redgate, where he is responsible for helping clients across a range of industries securely automate their database development, change management, continuous integration and deployment processes.
The modern day application consists of approximately 80% open source code. In 2017 there were 87 Billion Downloads from The Central Repository (the largest open source Java repository in the world). 1 in 8 of those open source libraries contain a known security vulnerability. Known vulnerabilities in open source are widely exploited as an attack vector and lead to well document breaches such as the one that hit Equifax in 2017 (Apache Struts 2 Rest API library). Cyber Security crime costs the global economy $450 billion in 2016. This eclipsed the entire illicit drug trade which cost the global economy $430 billion. Companies looking to accelerate development and embrace DevOps need to embrace solutions like Jenkins to automate their builds and releases. Companies looking to innovate faster while reducing their risk need to ensure security is included in the development process (DevSecOps) by building secure CI/CD pipelines with integrated and automated quality guardrails such as Nexus Firewall and Nexus Lifecycle for Open Source Governance and inspection during every Jenkins Build. In this session we will take you through how to configure your builds in Jenkins that ensure development can continue to accelerate while also layering in open source security and governance.
