DevOps & Microservices Summit – 27 April 2017, London
DevOps now is in its seventh year of practice but the old architecture is no longer able to support the speed of delivery and so needs the additional help of Microservices and Dockers for incremental change. But adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process and technology.
Microservices architecture helps to deliver easy testing, fast and deployments and overall agility. It’s also fairly complex—so to successfully implement Microservices, you need to understand the core concepts behind this approach.
Topics to be covered:
Benefits of Attending:
This one day programme is designed to connect these extensive aspects as well as the challenges. Expert practitioners and thought leaders will provide information on the implementation and help you to deepen your understanding and develop your business case and build towards getting significant return on investment.

Gaining support for change initiatives involves showing people real value quickly. This presentation describes our DevOps journey so far. The results dramatically improved our ways of deploying infrastructure and how we had to adjust our ways of working to embrace the new “Cloud” world. We show how this started with a culture change and adoption of new tools and resulted in improving the cost and speed of delivering infrastructure. This also improved teamwork and customer relationships between operations, development, and our other stakeholders. Although we had to overcome many challenges in terms of culture, politics, attitudes, skills, and process, we realised significant business benefits and cost savings.

What does it take to get to a system where I can create a new service in just a few lines of code, and live with the result? In the transition to microservices, it's critical to consider, and provide support for, the whole lifecycle of a service. Except that now it's a fleet of services where there are just too many to manage by hand. In this talk, Steve will discuss some of the technical and organisational infrastructure that makes microservices work in practice.
Allan Kelly, Software Strategy Ltd
Today's growth businesses are digital. And in a digital world time-to-market is key. Competing digitally means competing against companies who can deliver product improvements many times a day.
New technologies, Agile processes and great engineers are necessary for continual delivery but creating continual value requires a different organization and a different culture. These organizations and cultures are built on an understanding of diseconomies of scale: the key to success is working small.
In this presentation Allan Kelly will explain how business built on economies of scale must change their organization and cultures to think small so they can win big.
Liz Rice, Container Specialist, Microscaling
Containers and Docker are not really new technologies, but recently there has been a huge shift towards their adoption. In this talk we'll look at some of the reasons why companies adopt containers, and how they fit within a DevOps culture. We'll dig into the life-cycle of a container to see how it's built, managed and deployed.
Darren Hague, Cloud Infrastructure Architect, SAP
SAP has been using a DevOps & Continuous Delivery approach for building its web and mobile apps for several years, and is now building and running a global cloud at the scale needed to support the digital transformation needs of its customers. This talk recaps the story of how SAP originally adopted DevOps practices before moving on to describe how the Cloud Infrastructure Services team is building and operating its 3rd generation cloud automation system using microservices, containers and open-source software.
Josh Dvir, Devops Architect & Managing Director@DevopsPro
Microservices today has to be highly available, scalable, must have an easy deploy mechanism with little configuration and fast deployment. This presentation will cover three real world use cases on how to deliver your microservice to an autoscaled, highly resilient environment, quickly and safely.
• The technologies that will be discussed are:
AWS Elastic Beanstalk • AWS ECS (Elastic Container Service) • AWS Lambda & API Gateway.
• AWS Elastic Beanstalk is a wrapper above the basic AWS services like ELB, EC2, SCG and more.
o Elastic Beanstalk allows you to run and scale your Go, Java, .NET, Node.js, PHP, Python, Ruby or use Docker containers to deploy your applications to a running server with easy configuration files.
o AWS ECS is AWS container service that allows you to deploy your containers and manage them with ease.
• Finally we will deploy a small application to AWS Lambda service and see how Serverless is starting to take off.

Organisations are building their applications around microservice architectures because of the flexibility, speed of delivery, and maintainability they deliver.
Execute a single command and you have a lightweight, self-contained sandbox; another command removes all trace when you're done. Need an identical copy of your application stack in multiple environments? Build your own container image and then your entire development, test, operations, and support teams can launch an identical clone environment.
Containers are revolutionizing the entire software lifecycle: from the earliest technical experiments and proofs of concept through development, test, deployment, and support. Orchestration tools manage how multiple containers are created, upgraded and made highly available. Orchestration also controls how containers are connected to build sophisticated applications from multiple, microservice containers.
This session introduces you to technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes & Kafka which are driving the microservices revolution. Learn about containers and orchestration – and most importantly how to exploit them for stateful services.
