enterprise conference sessions

1:15pm–1:55pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Daniel Lockhart (Verizon Digital Media Services)
Slides:   1-PPTX 
Introducing a deployment process can be difficult in the best of circumstances; introducing one at an established company, with many entrenched developers and over 10,000 servers, is an even bigger challenge. This talk will share the experience of bringing DevOps deployment practices to Verizon Digital Media Services.
3:40pm–4:20pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Thorvald Natvig (Medallia, Inc.)
Slides:   1-PDF 
What’s the difference between a server, a switch and a SAN? We asked ourselves this question and realized the distinction stemmed from outdated assumptions. By blurring the lines — running networking on our servers and applications on our switches — we pushed the frontier of infrastructure performance, decreased complexity and costs, and increased our availability. All on white-box Linux hardware.
2:10pm–2:50pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Brandon Philips (CoreOS, Inc)
The architectural patterns of large-scale infrastructure are changing. The last decade we sped up server acquisition by putting software and APIs in control of the base infrastructure. This decade we will make our infrastructure better at running our applications easily, securely, and consistently.
1:15pm–1:55pm Tuesday, 10/13/2015
Ragnar Lonn (Load Impact), Daniel Stenberg (Mozilla)
Slides:   external link,   external link
The new HTTP/2 protocol is mostly focused on web performance. So what kind of performance improvement can you expect by switching to HTTP/2? Daniel Stenberg (one of the IETF's architects of HTTP/2) and Ragnar Lönn (founder of Load Impact) explain the key improvements within HTTP/2, and unveil a new tool developers can use to see how their applications will function in the new protocol.
9:35am–9:55am Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Jeff Gothelf (Neo Innovation)
Slides:   1-PDF 
Simply being able to ship software faster doesn’t actually mean we’re building better products. In this talk, Jeff will cover how our increasingly continuous capabilities are leading to an increasingly continuous *culture*.
11:20am–12:00pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Bryan Cantrill (Joyent)
Hardware hypervisors were a first generation approach to the challenges of resource and security isolation, but they’re unnecessarily shackling the future of containers. Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill will discuss why the hardware hypervisor layer is unnecessarily restrictive, and how we can more efficiently run containers in production by deploying directly on bare metal.
2:10pm–2:50pm Wednesday, 10/14/2015
Kyle Parrish (Fidelity Investments), David Halsey (Fidelity Investments)
Slides:   1-PDF    2-PDF 
How do you stress test a brokerage system in production if you can't risk orders processing, trades executing, or violating regulatory obligations? The answer used to be: "We don't." But the flash crash and other market anomalies exposed the risks inherent in not testing production. Hear what we learned as we built a way to do what had been written off as "too big to test."
