2 DAY CONFERENCE

CloudNative eXchange Forum 2021

Topics covered at #cloudnative-forum

Monday, 21st - Tuesday, 22nd June, Online Conference

6 experts spoke.
Overview

Join us for the CloudNative eXchange Forum — an exclusive day of keynotes featuring Adrian Cockcroft, Julien Landuré, Pini Reznik, Sidney Shek and more.


Cloud computing comes with many benefits for your business like reducing your IT costs, improving your security and allowing you to scale up or scale down your operation when needed.

But that does not mean it comes without challenges. Do you find it hard to keep up with the new tools and practices? Are you looking to create new strategy for your cloud native transformation?

At the CloudNative eXchange Forum you will see what's new with AWS Lambda, learn the best patterns for a successful cloud native transformation, and explore how Cloud providers build and use open source products.


CloudNative eXchange Forum Schedule

We've tried to schedule the CloudNative eXchange Forum to be accessible to as many of our members from around the globe as possible — but if you can't tune in live for a session, remember: video recordings of each talk will be available exclusively to Premium Members shortly after the event.

Programme

Cloud, OpenSource and Community

Let’s dig into the Cloud journey and see how Cloud providers build and use open source products. Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) serves as the vendor-neutral home for many of the fastest-growing open source projects, including Kubernetes and Prometheus. How does the foundation work? What does “Cloud Native” mean? What’s the relationship with Cloud Providers? Based on an overview of cloud features & projects, we will discuss about open source health, community-led success and licencing changes. From open source ideas to community adoption, let’s discover how you should define a cloud strategy to achieve your digital transformation.



Julien Landuré

CTO at Zenika, Julien is also Google Developer Expert Cloud. He's passionate about cloud technologies, and loves to help customers get results quickly using services like Google Cloud Platform. He’s from Nantes, France and funded the GDG Nantes, organizing one of the biggest DevFest in the world.


Serverless First

Serverless is the fastest way to build a modern application, and in most cases, the lowest cost and most sustainable as well. It’s so much faster than other approaches that it’s worth building serverless first, using all the capabilities of AWS Lambda and related services, before trying to optimize parts of the application by creating new container based long running services. In this talk we’ll look at some of the patterns and tooling, and the many new features that have been released in the last six months. If there’s still some remaining friction in your serverless development flow, let us know what it is, as that feedback is what’s driving the roadmap.



Adrian Cockcroft

Adrian Cockcroft has had a long career working at the leading edge of technology, and is fascinated by what happens next. In his new role as VP Sustainability Architecture at Amazon he is developing and sharing best practices for sustainable product architectures, and working with teams across AWS to support their own sustainability programs.


Creating & Sustaining a Culture of Innovation

Creating an innovation-driven culture is difficult and requires deliberate and well managed change to how you operate. Scaling it to a large organization is even harder. You also need the organizational context and norms – the culture – that allows innovate practices and thinking to thrive. Nailing these down, let alone what “culture” even is, can be hard. This talk will define what an innovative culture is and then cover several proven methods for leading culture change. Throughout, we’ll draw from use cases from large organizations that have tackled the challenge of changing to a innovation-driven culture.



Michael Coté

Michael Coté works at VMware Tanzu (formerly Pivotal) on the advocate team. He focuses on how large organizations are getting better at building and delivering software to help their business run better and grow. He’s been an industry analyst at RedMonk and 451 Research, worked in corporate strategy and M&A at Dell in software and cloud, and was a programmer for a decade before all that. He does several technology podcasts (such as Software Defined Talk), writes frequently on how large organizations struggle and succeed with agile development and DevOps, blogs at cote.coffee, and is @cote in Twitter. Texas Forever!


How to Win Friends and Influence Architecture

Cloud-native microservices encourage autonomous teams that make their own decisions without high-overhead formal processes to deliver features rapidly. However, we need to glue services together at some point. Without oversight, how do they seamlessly integrate technically and with smooth user experience, a.k.a. how do we avoid distributed balls of mud? And what is the role of an architect if teams make most of the decisions and designs? The modus operandi changes from owning decisions to facilitating team decision making in a way that aligns with business and technical strategy (without scaring teams with the concept of "strategy").

In this talk, we discuss the role of an architect in a world without ivory towers and techniques we can use to help teams pull in the same direction, enhancing their dev velocity over time. We'll share lessons we've learnt at Atlassian, a globally distributed company with a very strong grass-roots engineering culture.



Jeffrey Farber

Jeff Farber is an architect at Atlassian, where he currently focuses on building enterprise customer solutions within the Atlassian cloud. In his prior Atlassian role, he built a critical permissions service used across Atlassian. Jeff has been building software since a young age across various domains. He enjoys guiding software teams and making business-oriented software decisions.

Patterns for a Successful Cloud Native Transformation

There’s a great deal of talk about the crucial role culture plays in a successful cloud native transformation. But what does that really mean, and why is it so important? Cloud native is more than a toolset. It’s a full architecture, a philosophical approach for building applications that take full advantage of cloud computing. Drawing on decades of personal experience, Pini Reznik outlines the differences between waterfall, Agile, and cloud native approaches, then proposes a pattern language with transformation designs that may lead to a successful adoption of the cloud native approach.



Pini Reznik

Pini Reznik is the cofounder and CRO at Container Solutions, a consultancy that’s helping companies successfully adopt cloud native technologies and practices. In the company’s six years of existence, they've participated in and led dozens of cloud native transformations, gaining extensive hands-on experience in both the technical and organisational aspects of the transformation in the process.
