In my opinion the best part of the conference was what happen outside the sessions: informal talks with old and new colleagues. Beyond that, I really enjoy some of the sessions.
- I liked the keynote session by Troy Magennis about Agile Data (video here)
- The session “Database DevOps: Strategies to Address DevOpsLast Mile” by Scott Ambler was really interesting (slides here)
- One of the most interesting sessions for me was “Building evolutionary cloud infrastructure“, it presented a really useful model (slides here). Beyond the slides some of the content of the session is available in the website infrastructure-as-code.com
- The Impact Mapping workshop delivered by John Hughes and Rachet Whitt allowed me to practice this technique for the first time and I think I will include it in software engineering course.
- The session “Stepping Stones in Refactoring to Microservices” delivered by Amr Noaman (slides here) provided a interesting but controversial method to move to microservices
There were some other sessions that I couldn’t attend and that received very good feedback from my collegues:
- Agile Quantified (Measuring the impact of Agility) by Larry Maccherone (no slides available)
- The 12-factor pipeline by Juni Mukherjee (slides here)
Finally, I am very happy with the session I delivered: “Principles of Self-Service Infrastructure“, it was recorded so I will shared the video as soon as the organization publishes it.
