Deep Learning for Software Development
How can we apply machine learning (and visualization) to aid software development - specifically, software developers? While there is some work in this field, until recently most of it has been devoted to metrics and estimates. Metrics are shadows of snowflakes, and thus not particularly informative when seeking to understand the purpose of a system or the behavior of a component. Improving estimation, while an interesting application and a laudable goal, likewise does not directly help developers create better software faster, nor manage the growing complexity of real-world systems. Can we apply ML in ways that help guide development, inform software archeology, and reduce effort for developers? If so, can these things help us take on the systems-of-systems-of-systems of the future, where million-line code bases will be considered "quaint"?

After a brief survey of existing/past work in the area, we'll investigate the question of "what does software look like", examine the more interesting question of "what does good software look like", and use these insights to explore how we can enable developers to create and manage ever-larger software systems. No ML experience or math required. Lots of pretty pictures.

OPEN TALK: Navigating the React Solar System
React just exploded in popularity. But it’s only a UI library, not a full-fledged framework like Angular, Ember or [insert latest JS framework]. We need to create our own “framework” by picking from the plethora of libraries in the React solar system. But which ones should we choose? Or better yet, which ones do we actually need? Do we need a Flux implementation? What about handling ES6+, bundling and routing? How does it all come together?!1?!

Let’s walk through the tools and helper libraries that surround React. You’ll get the most out of the session with familiarity with React and its concepts, but you don’t need to be an expert. By the end of the session, you’ll have a solid understanding of the ecosystem, know which libraries you should prioritize learning first, and confidently build your own React-based stack.

OPEN TALK: A Fundamentally Different Approach to Building Intelligent Systems
Building deep learning systems at present is part science, part art, and a whole lot of arcana. Rather than focusing on the concepts you want the system to learn and how those can be taught, you often find yourself dealing with low-level details like network topology and hyperparameters. 

Databases solved this problem for data by allowing users to program at a higher level of abstraction. Databases eschew low-level implementation details and instead build a model of the information (the schema) using a high-level declarative programming language (such as SQL). The database server actualizes this model and manages its usage with real data. Similarly, for artificial intelligence, one can build a model for conceptual understanding (the mental model) using a high-level declarative programming language (such as Inkling). A runtime server can then be used to actualize this model and manage its usage with real data.

Keen Browne explains how Bonsai’s platform enables every developer to add intelligence to their software or hardware, regardless of AI expertise. Bonsai’s suite of tools—a new programming language, AI engine, and cloud service—abstracts away the lowest-level details of programming AI, allowing developers to focus on concepts they want a system to learn and how those concepts can be taught. Keen explores the underpinnings of this technique, details the Inkling programming language, and demonstrates how to build, debug, and iteratively refine models. To make things concrete and fun, Keen demonstrates how to create a system to play the video game Breakout using deep learning (but requiring codifying only the high-level concepts relevant for intelligent play) and offers a curriculum for how to teach this system.

Traditional Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) have focused on the tasks of software development: writing, testing, and shipping code. Coding for data science, machine learning, AI, and deep learning require a different set of tools.


This talk will discuss the data science development cycle and demo how RStudio Server and R Notebooks can increase productivity and reproducibility. We’ll also discuss how elements of traditional software tools (project structure, version control, documentation) still play an important role in interactive languages like R.

APIs, Microservices and the Serious Business of Play, Brick By Brick
We've compared APIs and microservices to a particular type of plastic building brick (you know the ones we're talking about) for so long it's become a cliche. Digging into the history of the company that creates those bricks—and their reasoning behind their designs—provides a valuable playbook for the future of your web services architecture. TIBCO's @claylo will share this history and philosophy with you and demonstrate how playing with a "children's toy" can actually improve the development of your web services.

OPEN TALK: From Waterfall to Secure DevOps - A Case Study

If you are moving between methodologies, you are probably looking for a roadmap or at least lessons from someone that’s been through it already. Over its 10+ years, Veracode has moved from monolith to microservice and from waterfall to DevOps. We have learned a lot along the way and are eager to share the story.

As you consider the shift from waterfall to agile, or agile to continuous deployment and eventually DevOps, there is more to think about than just architecture.  Peter Chestna, the Director of Developer Engagement at Veracode, led Veracode’s own transition from Waterfall to DevOps and in turn has helped hundreds of customers do the same.  Join us as Peter shares his own case study, how Veracode reengineered its own architecture but more importantly the overall process including team structure, the technologies to build a robust pipeline, security considerations and the cultural shifts required.

What you will learn:        

  1. A basic understanding of Waterfall, Agile and DevOps from a people, process and technology point of view
  2. Considerations when transitioning between these methodologies including org structure, process changes and technical debt
  3. An approach to leading the change in your own company
  4. How security can best be integrated deeply into DevOps to keep schedule risk to a minimum and velocity high

OPEN TALK: How Security Can Give You A Competitive Edge

As a software developer you strive to build quality and deliver innovation to the market. Regardless of the technology and tools you rely on, you must meet product specifications and requirements that often involve aggressive testing cycles and timelines. Also with the growing number of security breaches that are linked to vulnerabilities found in software, it is becoming more important to think about cybersecurity during the entire software development lifecycle. Even a base level of knowledge about secure coding practices can give you a competitive advantage to help you meet the growing demands of the market without compromising quality and innovation.

Join one of our own developers, Pete Chestna of Veracode as he shares his experiences and perspectives on integrating security into the software development lifecycle – meeting customer needs for increased security and innovating along the way. As a certified scrum master and scrum product owner, Pete joined Veracode as a platform developer and was instrumental in delivering the first version of Veracode’s application security service to customers. Later, as Director of Platform Engineering, Pete managed the Agile teams responsible for delivering Veracode’s SaaS platform and built the first DevOps team. Today he provides customers with practical advice on how to successfully roll out developer-centric application security programs.

OPEN TALK: Fast Feedback - Auto-complete for Your DevOps Pipeline

Mobile and web app teams need to move fast and focus on creating awesome features, not fixing bugs. Injecting fast and complete feedback over code changes before check-in and during build verification helps you minimize defects, improve team velocity, and increase release confidence. But what does that really take?

Join Paul Bruce, Developer Evangelist at Perfecto, to see how you can quickly test web, Android and iOS apps on multiple screen sizes, orientations, platforms and under real user conditions to prove that your users will be double-rainbow happy before release.

We will cover:

1. How to debug and troubleshoot platform-specific issues in your Android and iOS apps

2. Using React.js samples, how to continuously deploy new web features in a safe and reliable manner

3. Automated testing strategy: unit, integration, UI test flakiness, automation candidates, and execution schedules

4. Conditions that increase build, test lab, and deployment reliability

OPEN TALK: Low Code With Limitless Possibilities - Bring Your Own Code
Have you ever built something so completely sophisticated and cutting edge but then realized that you just committed yourself to maintaining that code long term?  You try to hire developers to maintain your project only to find that their rate is significantly higher because of the skill set required for your project.  That's the reality for far too many developers who try to push their project to the absolute cutting edge.

Taking a step back and looking at the project as a whole, most internal applications for business are little more than a simple web database with some system integrations.  A lot of time can be spent simply gathering requirements for the next project.  With QuickBase, you can get a lot more done by delegating most of the application development to business.  On the surface, the UI is simple and intuitive.  Common functions are easily found and support documentation is clear and readily abundant.  All of the of the prerequisites are in place for a low code self-service model for development.  Leaving you with more time to focus on the custom parts, not common to every web database.  And the freedom to move on from your past accomplishments.

The citizen developer model requires governance and advisement.  A few central players can advise tens or even hundreds of developers on design decisions and corporate standards.  This is orders of magnitude more productive than sourcing all internal web development to traditional web developers.  The citizen developer knows their own problem domain better than anyone.  This requires less meetings and less communication to see a project to completion.

Low code platforms can be a life saver, but sometimes a project has requirements beyond the native functionality of the platform.  My presentation covers a variety of techniques used to overcome these limits.

I hope you find my presentation stimulating.  If you end up with more questions than you did before you started, then I'll know that this was true.  I hope to have enough time towards the end to answer all your questions, otherwise come find me afterwards for an intriguing conversation.

Sincerely,

Develop, Deploy, Iterate Often. Today’s developers are developing and deploying multiple releases per day, sometimes per hour. Architectural designs are changing from monolithic applications to micro services that have smaller granularity and use lightweight protocols. Developers are building modern applications engaging customers over multiple channels via mobile, chatbots and even virtual reality. An API first approach is critical in tying all this together allowing cloud native applications to access data and processes, enabling collaboration between front-end and back-end developers.  With modern app development platforms, developers can easily build, connect and elastically scale all web and mobile applications, services across any device. Microservices and chatbots are driving real need for all enterprises to adopt an API-first strategy.

OPEN TALK: Perception, Bias, and Manipulating Metrics

Accurate metrics lead to smart decisions, but how do you know whether you are measuring the right things?  Human perception and bias can influence how metrics are interpreted. This presentation will help you understand the influence assumptions and biases have on metrics, and how to present credible data. Valid metrics can open lines of communication across and within teams, but it's important to make sure these metrics aren't used to shame individuals. Not only do you need to measure the right thing, you need to choose the best way to present the results in an honest and respectful manner.

In this session you will:

·       Learn what a vanity metric is and how to avoid it

·       Understand how perception and biases play a role in interpreting metrics

·       Use metrics to make informed decisions

OPEN TALK: Is PDF a Victim of Its Own Success?

Portable Document Format (PDF) files are ubiquitous. It's taken 20 plus years but now PDF creation is integrated into all of the most common desktop operating systems and many mobile applications are capable of exporting PDF files. On the other side, PDF consumers are everywhere, your operating system has a PDF viewer, your browser has one, your hosted applications have their own, and if you're reading this description, you probably have a preferred tool for working with PDF. The problem is that all of these viewers provide a different PDF experience. Most of them do a pretty good job of showing you the page content, but that's where the consistency ends. If the PDF file you've opened in your browser is a form, you may not know that there are fields that you can type into... or if some of those fields are used to calculate values in other fields. You might not know that the PDF file you're looking at in your favorite tool has comments or redaction annotations that should show up as black boxes but are invisible to your PDF viewer.

In short, by becoming too popular, PDF has become unreliable; it's promises broken. They're no longer "Portable". But it doesn't have to be this way. Even though some PDF developer tools have been around for almost as long as PDF, too many of them cut corners under the assumption that Adobe Reader and Acrobat are the only viewers in use. They rely on the fact that the Adobe tools "fix" improperly formatted PDF and ignore the dictionaries that, according to the spec, are optional but in practice are required.

This talk will focus on PDF developer tools and discuss why it's critical to go the extra mile to make your PDF files work consistently across browsers, operating systems, and viewers, and show developers how to put the "Portable" back in PDF.

The role of VR / AR in your company's strategy

In Silicon Valley, VR/AR is the future. Large tech companies and VCs are pouring money into the industry and there are dozens of VR/AR events each week. But outside of the tech bubble, the user base is small, engagement rates are weak, adoption is struggling, and the world is still waiting for the killer app. The companies that figure out VR/AR in 2017 will have a head start on creating the future.

Mickey Ferri, Ph.D. in Economics, Chief Growth Officer of Enflux, will give a talk on how companies can effectively use VR and AR in their strategies in 2017. Mickey will cover the state of VR/AR in 2017, what VR needs to become mainstream, and how to get there.

Mickey will talk from his first-hand experience as cofounder of Enflux, which makes motion capture clothing for full-body presence in VR/AR/MR. Mickey earned his PhD in economics from the University of Chicago, where he studied the economics of technology adoption and market dynamics in sports and entertainment. This talk is ideal for CTOs of companies that are developing solutions in VR/AR, or are interested in learning more about the space. Enflux (www.getenflux.com) is a Y-Combinator (W16) company based in Hayward, CA.

OPEN TALK: Data Modeling for the Internet of Things

When creating an Internet of Things (IoT) application, many developers start thinking about connectivity, sensors, or even the user interface first. But what about the Data Model, i.e. the basic structure of your information and how you store, manipulate, and interact with it? Often, this is left to later stages with the hopes that it grows organically out of the application’s needs. ThingWorx believes that this approach is backwards. Start with the Data Model. Decide who needs to interact with the data and what specific requirements they’ll have. Think about reusability. Think about updating it in the future. How will it scale? How will it interact with future features which you haven’t even thought about yet? We’ll talk about these items and more in ThingWorx’s Data Modeling for the Internet of Things.

Lunch and Learn w/ Veracode: Getting to DevSecOps

DevSecOps is an organizational framework that allows development, security and operations to identify and address vulnerabilities faster by introducing security earlier in the product lifecycle. The benefits of a DevSecOps approach are clear: risk reduction at the same time as continuous deployment.

Join Colin Domoney, Veracode senior product innovation manager, for an invitation-only Lunch and Learn session at DeveloperWeek 2017. As a former head of application security at one of the world’s largest banks, Colin will share his knowledge and insights into DevSecOps, including:

  • How to address gaps between security, development and operations teams

  • What technologies and environments you need for automation and integration

  • Practical steps teams can take when transitioning to DevSecOps

OPEN TALK: More Than a Gut Feeling - A Metrics-Driven Approach to Code Quality
We live in a world of Continuous Delivery, where rapid code development and release is becoming more and more of a norm. Yet, while DevOps has evolved to support this, testing has not. Leaving code quality in limbo, defined mainly in subjective terms.  In this session, we’ll examine a metrics driven approach to code quality and how testing must fundamentally shift in order for us to step beyond gut feelings and achieve quantitative quality management.

Full Stack Development - Media Technology (VR, Film, Animation)

Have you always wondered what it takes to transition into media technology? Are you fascinated by cinematic VR and storytelling? Today’s feature films and cinematic VR represent a fusion of creativity and technology. It’s the thrill of combining artistic expression with the cutting-edge tech that drives innovation forward. The number of technologists and artists involved on a feature film runs into the hundreds, each playing their own little part in turning the filmmaker’s vision into reality.

In this session we will explore some of the core technology that goes into feature film post production and its application into cinematic VR. How do the frontend and backend stacks look like in a VR studio? What are the tools and technologies that are a “must know” in a production environment? Join us for this behind the scenes look at the exciting world of media technology.

OPEN TALK: Introverts Can Be Leaders Too

Are you tired of hearing “it’s not possible”? Maybe you’re more familiar with “it won’t work”. You may have gotten into the habit of saying it yourself as you review requirements and project plans. In a world where all we hope for is optimism, it surprises most people to learn that this sort of negative approach isn’t bad at all. It turns out that it’s the best thing for a project as long as framed the right way.

In this session, we’ll explain why and how to use this type of pushback from the tech experts and development teams to start your projects off right. We’ll work through the reasons why this type of thinking needs to be embraced in order to jumpstart projects the right way – by directly addressing the development hurdles that are wildly apparent to the tech team, but not to leadership.

The goal is to improve communication and understanding that a techie’s concerns are good for projects. Just as the strongest steel is forged by the hottest fires, the toughest questions can build the best project plans.

OPEN TALK: Introducing PixelFreeStudio

PixelFree is an app development tool like no other.  In traditional app development, a design artist creates the graphics for the new app. Then, a UI developer integrates the graphics into the app, repeating the process once for each desired platform.  Finally, programmers add the code logic to make the UI elements work on each platform. 

With the PixelFree client, you design your UI with the artist's assets and simply export it as native code to your iOS, Android, and web-based apps.  PixelFree automates the UI Developer's role on each platform, thus saving potentially 60-80% development time.  Visit us at our booth and come see our presentation where we discuss in detail how to use PixelFree, its capabilities, and benefits.
