PRO TALK: Monitoring Kubernetes vs. Serverless Based Applications
The software we write does not always work as smoothly as we would like. In order to know if something went wrong, understand the root cause and fix the problem, we need to monitor our system and get alerts whenever issues pop up. There are many useful tools and practices for Kubernetes based applications. As we adopt serverless architecture can we continue to use the same practice? Unfortunately, the answer is no. In this session, we will discuss: - The differences between monitoring Kubernetes and serverless based applications- Best practices for serverless monitoring- Methods to efficiently troubleshoot serverless based applications. Start enjoying the great benefits of serverless computing.

PRO TALK: Seamless Web Services Development with Mu
In the development of fast-paced, service-oriented systems, it is not uncommon for changes in major requirements to emerge. Things that were concrete like protocols, transports, and encodings may need to be altered, e.g., due to the organization switching to a new tech stack. Oli introduces Mu, a new FP library for building web services aiming to make such changes painless. Mu offers code annotations for defining RPC or REST APIs, message types, and serialization formats, thus removing a dependency on protocol-specific declarations and enabling seamless changes between different implementations.

PRO TALK: Writing Cloud-Native Application with Ballerina and Kubernetes
Ballerina is a new open source cloud-native programming language that is designed to write microservices while maintaining reliability, scalability, observability, and security. It is a compiled, transactional, statically and strongly typed programming language with textual and graphical syntaxes. Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud-native deployment automation. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error-prone. Ballerina is natively understood the Docker and Kubernetes and able to generate deployment artifacts while compiling the source code. This session will explore how Ballerina specialize on writing cloud-native application and orchestrating into Kubernetes.

PRO TALK: Multigrain Services: Micro vs. Mini vs. Macro
Everybody is moving to microservices, but Gartner says that by 2019, 90% of organizations will think they’re too disruptive and switch to miniservices. In the meantime, enterprises continue to look at their monolithic applications and macroservices and plan for microservice nirvana, not knowing how likely they are to fail. As with most new technologies, a one-size-fits-all approach is a bad idea. Come to this session to learn the differences among microservices, miniservices, macroservices, and monoliths and when to use each of them. We’ll investigate DevOps and organizational structure in addition to the technology specifics.

PRO TALK: Productionizing Your Machine Learning Models with Serverless Microservices
You've developed and trained your ML model, and it performs beautifully in your development environment -- but what happens when you move that into production, and it suddenly has to scale massively varying elastic workloads, compete with other models for memory and processing resources, or mesh with models deployed in other languages and frameworks? It isn't enough to simply fire up a machine instance, write a Flask wrapper, and call it a day: properly productionizing a model requires a deep understanding of container management, load balancing, CI/CD, dynamic resource allocation, and more. In this talk, we'll look at what your team does and does not need to build in order to move from weeks of deployment time to mere minutes, while preserving elasticity, low-latency, and flexibility.

PRO TALK: Architectures for Successful Continuous Delivery in a Multi-Cloud World
The cloud takeover is in full force – but how businesses leverage cloud in a hybrid and multi-cloud world is often still a murky topic. No one cloud is perfect, and organizations still need to plan for supporting and migrating legacy applications. Enterprises in particular also face challenges of how to drive a common compliance and security strategy across multi-cloud and on-prem deployment. Furthermore – cloud is not just an “IT Ops Thang” - it’s a core consideration for DevOps success! In fact, according to the 2018 DevOps Research and Assessment State of DevOps Report companies that “do cloud right” are 23 times more likely to be elite DevOps performers!  This talk will explore how businesses can think more broadly about how to architect CI/CD pipelines, release processes, and applications to leverage the benefits of today’s hybrid and multi-cloud reality. We’ll cover some key concepts that will help you achieve Continuous Delivery success, including: · Five key cloud practices you might not be leveraging · Strategies for building pipelines that enable the five keys to doing cloud right  · Managing software delivery for cloud-native and traditional teams · How to standardize security and compliance across legacy and cloud-native delivery pipelines · Considerations for future proofing your pipelines and release processes

PRO TALK: Creating Platform Agnostic Packages That Can Run Anywhere
One of the dreams of development is to build a software package once, then be able to deploy it anywhere. With current Open Source projects this dream is closer than ever. Come to this talk to learn how to create software packages that run (almost) anywhere. You will see how the same application can be run on bare metal, on a VM, or in a container - with everything needed to automate that application already built into the package itself. This even works with a mixed infrastructure - metal for your static compute heavy loads, vms for your persistent data stores, and ephemeral short lived containers for you applications managed by Kubernetes or other container scheduling services. Come to this talk to also learn how to build and deploy these packages with the intelligence to self organize into topologies, no central orchestrator needed. Learn how the dream of platform agnostic and self organizing packages is fulfilled today and where it will evolve in the future.

PRO TALK: The Future of Medicine and AI
I will discuss both the current state of research in Ai as well as some of the ethical and regulatory challenges that we are currently facing in the medical field.  It is estimated that data in healthcare will double every 73 days, however much of this data is lost in silos, and research and innovation stunted by poor interoperability as well as data harmonization abilities. Although we have made advances in being able to personalize medicine, image recognition, and identify target genes for novel therapies, improvements in the ability to validate these topics, lack of discourse between datascientists and physicians, and important ramifications of algorithms (e.g influencing someone's life or well being) is necessary for the field to advance. Additionally, our work has demonstrated that most ML algorithms do not perform better than logistic regression, which has been used by the medical field for decades, raising the question of what additive benefits in many clinical scenarios ML may have. Finally, I urge individuals to consider what we are optimizing (length of life? quality of life?) and how some of these metrics may be measured or achieved.
