    Session 1:
    Boost Your Developer Speed

    Overview:
    How can you up your game in software development by increasing the speed at which you release software to your customers, reducing bad code, and becoming happier in the process? The answer: Modern Application Development. Modern applications are built with a combination of new architecture patterns, operational models, and software delivery processes, that in combination allow builders to innovate faster while reducing risks, errors, frustration, and cost.

    What you will learn:

    • How to get started with modern application development
    • How to build microservices
    • How to automate software delivery end-to-end
    • Tools and tips for modern application development

    Building on a Budget: How to keep your costs down while moving fast

    Overview:
    Too often, Cost Optimisation becomes a concern after an unexpected bill comes in, causing panic, kneejerk reactions and completely throwing out delivery dates. You'll learn common cost pitfalls, how to avoid them, and the tools you have to prevent bill shock, all without losing focus on building value for your business. What are some quick steps you can take today, that will pay off in the long run? What are things to be aware of as you scale? This session is for Developers, DevOps, and IT managers for solo or small teams.

    What you will learn:

    • Common causes of bill shock
    • Available tools for cost optimisation

    Modern Application Observability

    Overview:
    In modern, microservices-based applications, it’s critical to have end-to-end observability of each microservice and the communications between them in order to quickly identify and debug issues. In this session, we cover the techniques and tools to achieve consistent, full-application observability, including monitoring, tracing, logging, and service mesh.

    What you will learn:

    Session 4:
    Event sourcing with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka

    Overview:
    Despite not being a new concept, Event Sourcing as a means of storing and processing data has struggled to gain a lot traction in the IT landscapes of large enterprises. Some of the challenges to adoption for Event Sourcing has been in the complexity of building and operating a distributed and immutable log like Apache Kafka plus the lack of framework support. In this session we will hear from Simple Machines CTO, Andy Britz how in conjunction with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka and a new open source framework they have released called Simple Sourcing that the barrier to entry for development teams looking to explore Event Sourcing architectures has been considerably reduced.

    What you will learn:

    • What is Event Sourcing and why it is useful
    • The characteristics of Apache Kafka that make it useful for Event Sourcing
    • Explore an Event Sourcing demo for a bank account ledger usecase that is built with Amazon Managed Streaming for Apache Kafka and Simple Sourcing

    Session 1:
    MLOps: Automation with Machine Learning

    Overview:
    Data Scientists and ML developers need more than a Jupyter notebook to create a ML model, test it, put into production and integrate it with a portal and/or a basic web/mobile application in a reliable and flexible way. There are three basic questions that you should consider when you start developing a ML model for a real Business Case:
    How can machine learning be implemented and not just remain a research project in an organisation?
    How long would it take your organisation to deploy a change that involves a single line of code?
    Can you do this on a repeatable, reliable basis?
    So, if you're not happy with the answers, MLOps is a concept that can help you: a) to create or improve the organisation culture for CI/CD; b) to create an automated infrastructure that will support your processes. This session will take you through a journey of operational models that will allow builders to innovate faster while reducing time errors and cost.

    What you will learn:

    • How to get started with machine learning?
    • How to automate machine learning delivery end-to-end?
    • How can Developers, DevOps, Data- Engineers and Data-Scientists collaborate to build an effective outcome for Machine learning projects?
    • Tools and tips for building, deploying and monitoring machine learning projects
