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: 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,

OPEN TALK: An Intro to Continuous Performance Management

The digital landscape is evolving at an unprecedented pace. Agility is king and the adoption of Microservices, Mobile-first development, GitHub, Docker, and continuous delivery (CD) methodologies is rapidly expanding. Traditional performance management systems are ill-equipped to keep pace with this innovation. As a result, many organizations that have gone digital to move faster and reach a global audience have seen their product quality deteriorate.

In this presentation, the speaker will walk teams through how to integrate and automate end-user monitoring and testing earlier into your software development lifecycle, enabling more agile DevOps practices which save time, money, and improve the digital experience for your end-users.

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.

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.

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.
