Tamar Eilam (IBM Research )
Today, we are witnessing a great proliferation of cloud native paradigms such as 12-factor app, microservices, and serverless. An emerging unified cloud platform  (based on open source projects such as Kubernetes and Istio) is emerging and the new frontier is its evolution to unify multiple programming paradigms for greater simplification with power of expression.

Paula Paul (ThoughtWorks), Rosemary Wang (Thoughtworks)
Even if you're not ready to adopt a microservices architecture, you still want the benefits of rapidly deployable, highly automated infrastructure that enables rapid delivery of new features and services. Paula Paul and Rosemary Wang offer a deeper look at the necessary set of products and capabilities for a delivery infrastructure to support a distributed service or microservice architecture.

Asanka Abeysinghe (WSO2, Inc)
A cell-based architecture is a composable unit of architecture that is self-contained. The cell is independently scalable. It’s independently deployable. It’s independently governed. It is part of an ecosystem of cells. A cell-based architecture is a common pattern that any enterprise can connect architecture, implementation, and deployment by making autonomous development teams.

Andrew Jenkins (Aspen Mesh)
You're probably skeptical of the hype around service mesh technology. Join Andrew Jenkins to learn how incremental adoption can make a service mesh successful on your terms. You'll learn trade-offs around a few of the top capabilities so you can prioritize what your project adopts today and what you can defer based on your own risk-reward profile. Read more.

Adam Zimman (LaunchDarkly)
Adam Zimman discusses the history of SDLC models before diving into the next phase of evolution: progressive delivery. Adam explores the benefits of the progressive delivery model, with a focus on business value of rapid delivery as a method to reduce risk. Read more.

Aaron Parecki (Okta)
Aaron Parecki discusses common security threats when building microservices using OAuth and how to protect yourself. You'll learn about high-profile API security breaches related to OAuth, common implementation patterns for mobile apps, browser-based apps, and web server apps, and the latest best practices around OAuth security being developed at the IETF OAuth working group.

James Bottomley (IBM Research)
How much do you as an Architect know about Infrastructure? And how much do you think you should know? As we transition from Physical Systems to Virtual Machines to Containers, the way we build systems has changed radically, influenced by the new paradigms. This talk will take a look at the relationship between the systems we build and the infrastructure we build them from. Read more.

Jan Kleinert (Red Hat )
Kubernetes scales and manages stateless applications quite easily. Stateful applications can require more work. They can be harder to dynamically manage with data intact and sometimes come with their own notion of clustering. Jan Kleinert offers an overview of Operators—Kubernetes agents that know how to deploy, scale, manage, back up, and even upgrade complex stateful applications. Read more.

Tamar Eilam (IBM Research )
Istio is an open source project for securely connecting and managing networked polyglot microservices. In this talk I will demonstrate how Istio can used to help developers continuously deliver software as a service with confidence and reduced risk. In particular, I will show how ISTIO capabilities can be used to perform A/B and Canary testing gaining insight and control. Read more.
