While many see APIs as just a technical concept, they obviously lack appreciation for the rising strategic business significance of APIs. APIs allow companies to grow at unprecedented rates, and help many to expand into new markets. From a business perspective, APIs are a new tool in the product marketer's toolbox. That may mean developers will increasingly take orders from marketing.

Gavin Towey (Box, Inc)
Box developed two open source tools for MySQL: Anemometer and Raingauge. Anemometer tracks query performance, gathers query execution data from many databases at once, and has a simple API for DevOps integrations. Raingauge captures forensic data from MySQL when unexpected events occur so you can diagnose and fix production problems quickly. Learn how these free tools can help you.

Todd Minnella (conDati, Inc.), Matt Solnit (SOASTA, Inc.)
Learn how to make your systems take an active role in healing themselves! Todd and Matt will walk the audience end-to-end through three specific examples based on a real-world system, using widely available tools and APIs: 1. Externally-triggered full garbage collection, 2. Automated problem detection and remediation for cloud servers, 3. System-initiated defect filing and escalation.

Consul by HashiCorp is an open source tool for service discovery, monitoring, and infrastructure configuration. Simple configuration and powerful features like high availability, failure detection, and multi-datacenter awareness make Consul a great solution for organizations of all sizes trying to scale their monitoring.

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to build a multi-container application using the Datacenter Operating System (DCOS). DCOS allows easy deployment and management of datacenter workloads, while significantly increasing utilization. In this workshop, we’ll cover how to deploy typical containerized service and batch workloads across a cluster of machines using the DCOS.

In this talk we will discuss how we enabled decomposition of one of our 250+ system components into a continously deployed microservice cluster using Docker, Consul, the ELK stack, and Graphite. We will discuss the architecture and supporting services as well as the continous delivery from source to production via Ansible and Jenkins.

Jen Andre (Komand)
Are you using Docker today or looking to dip your toes in? Maybe you’ve heard some debate about whether or not Docker is ‘secure’ enough for production deployments. What does this mean? Jen will give you an overview of the Docker security model, a dive into the potential risks, and the tools that are available within the Docker ecosystem to help run Docker containers securely.

Data-driven decision making rests, in part, on availability of high fidelity data. Presence of anomalies limits the use of data on an “as is” basis. Automatic anomaly detection is key to providing high fidelity data. We present a statistically rigorous method for automatic anomaly detection, which leverages correlations between multiple time series.
