Getting started with DevOps
Being one of the hottest buzzwords within IT for over almost a decade, DevOps is said to be the holy grail for increasing the speed of software development and delivery. A huge amount of Open Source Software tools support the DevOps philosophy and help to speed up things even more, but just deploying a bunch of tools and say “we are now working DevOps” is not the most efficient way in most situations.

The presentation will cover the following topics:
- In short: what is DevOps?
- What are major pitfalls and risks?
- Embracing change instead of fighting it
- What knowledge and skills do I need?
- What Open Source tools can I use?

The dangers of focusing on output vs outcome
Have you heard these phrases at work in the past three months?
1. That's now how it works here. Or, that will never work here.
2. We can't move forward until we have a better solution designed.
3. We can't make a decision until we have everyone in the room.

The expectation to deliver high-quality, feature rich software faster while inadequately addressing the pressure of that has created an environment of high stress and low reward. Trying to change decades of ingrained habits comes at an understandable technology and human cost.

In this talk, you will learn what behaviors are a result of cultures that put an emphasis on output vs. outcome, how you can mitigate them as technologists, and ultimately focus on achieving a healthy and empowered environment.

Growing Your Career: From Tactical to Strategic
Have you ever considered transitioning from an individual contributor to a leadership role? As you are promoted, your success flows less from your own technical achievements and more from your ability to inspire and guide others. To make your mark as a technical leader, you’ll need to lead, engage, motivate, and influence others regardless of whether they report to you. Our panelists will share insights about their career changes and the lessons they have learned. Attendees who are, or are thinking of, transitioning from tactical to strategic roles will be armed with advice on how to leverage their experience, networks, and unique brand to identify where they want to go in their careers. Participants are encouraged to engage in discussion and ask questions.

Continuous Delivery Meets OpenShift
This presentation will introduce why continuous delivery matters for a software, and give a complete container-based continuous delivery pipelines implementation that is used in Red Hat PnT DevOps Factory 2.0 project.
- fully on OpenShift, supporting scaling-out with workload growth
- using pure Red Hat technologies
- accelerated by parallel runs
- pipeline as code, deployed as OpenShift apps
- automatically proceeding to the next stage in the pipeline
- ensure products are mutually compatible as container changes
A functional demo and major technical details will also be covered.

Attendees will learn the background and basic concept about continuous delivery, and get an overview of how Red Hat internally runs continuous delivery pipelines for products on OpenShift.

Knative makes Developers Incredible on Serverless
What makes your developers incredible to develop, deploy, manage modern serverless workload? With Knative, developers can create and deploy their own serverless on Kubernetes where they want then develop your functions with your language of choice. For example, OpenWhisk has rich support for your preferred serverless apps such as Python, Java. If those languages don't suit your needs, you can deploy your own app container to act as your function. Because the containers only spin up for a function when in use, resource usage can be minimized during idle times.
In this session, you will learn how Knative makes it easier, quicker to develop, deploy, and manage your serverless app for enterprise developers with an understandable live demo.

Creating a team mindset of continuous improvement
Between Two Beards - Making Allstar Teams

Neil "Neil" Smith will interview two of Red Hat's biggest celebrities - Ralph "Threebean" Bean and Mike "MikeB" Bonnet.
Pretending he has a sense of humour Neil we will be extracting the lessons learned for the Factory 2.0 team as they became one of the biggest hits in Red Hat history.
Our panel session will review three focus areas we made on our agile journey:
Becoming a superstar team
Keeping the team focused on winnning Rap battles
Always knowing how rich we are

Hope you have some fun with us.

Issues are dead. Long live issues, goals, actions!
Running an open source project but work tracking feels tricky? Is your issue tracker too messy? Come and learn about Agile and a specific approach using issues, goals, and actions to organize and track user feedback, objectives, and work to be done.

We'll also have two specific examples of open source project using this system to organize what they're doing — Fedora Docs and Fedora Modularity.

You'll learn what an Agile mindset is, and about one specific approach you can take.

How do we get from 1000s projects to one product
RHEL is composed of 1000s of upstream projects. It's commonly known that Fedora is upstream of RHEL and yet - development of enterprise grade operating system brings its own challenges.

I will cover the challenges of putting together major version of RHEL as I have very close experience with development of major RHEL releases. I plan to cover some technical details and some high level lessons we've learned from 3+ years long projects.

Processes & Tools over Individuals & Interactions
Agile nowadays might mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. You might ask 10 times what it is, and get 10 different answers. Because of that, enabling teams to be more agile becomes even more difficult. Different perceptions, different problems and lack of understanding what really Agile is significantly contribute to misconceptions.

When thinking about Agile, some people think about : “too many meetings”, “micromanagement”, “too complex”, “not flexible enough” or ”not having the opportunity to fail”. Plus, it is impossible with remote employees.
Not only because of these perceptions, Agile gets bad reputation.

In this talk we want to share our view of what Agile is and what Agile is not based on our experience working with several teams at Red Hat.

Building Distributed Systems in Distributed Teams
Building distributed systems is notoriously hard... building a distributed team, even more so. At Elastic — the company behind the open source tools Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash — everything is distributed; the company and our products. This talk dives into the details of how Elastic is thriving on its distributed model:

* How Elastic started to be distributed by design.
* What our shared values are and what we have learned as we progressed and grew to our current size.
* What the day of an Elastician can look like.
* What we are using in terms of tooling.
* How we hire and onboard new employees.

Holistic Monitoring
There are many ways to monitor services, but monitoring with only one tool runs the risk of partial service coverage. To solve this, the Red Hat DevOps team has developed a holistic monitoring strategy that encompasses the needs of each service without leaving gaps. From web applications to APIs, or containers to bare metal appliances, our strategy takes everything into account. In this session, you'll learn about the Red Hat DevOps monitoring strategy in detail. In addition, you will discover the fallacy of origin-based availability monitoring, how to develop useful SLI/SLO’s, and how to craft actionable alerts.

CI/CD on OpenShift for developers
CI/CD is a key to deliver agile engineering practice and it is must have for microservices culture. To implement a CI/CD flow, devops/developers need to evaluate and setup:
1) Tools that can execute CI/CD jobs then build and deploy applications on Kubernetes/OpenShift
2) CI/CD process in terms of what should be deployment environments - dev, stage, production
3) Wire up everything from managing CI/CD server like Jenkins, set up source control hooks, define a pipeline,  align tools to build, test and deploy an application
This causes developer or platform engineers to re-invent the wheel every time.

All these mundane tasks can be simplified with "codeready toolchain"; a developer platform based on OpenShift to increase developer productivity. "Codeready toolchain build" provides a managed CI/CD-as-a-service which provides tools to build a CI/CD pipelines for an application from day 1 on OpenShift.
