Session Summary:

DevOps means many things to many people, but delivering software value faster is a priority for every organisation. Developers are driving change from the factory floor with continuous delivery; leading organisations are fostering collaboration from the board, but legacy issues remain a very real challenge for established enterprises. This panel will focus on strategies for overcoming legacy issues to accelerate digital innovation and collaboration within the business with real world examples.

Session Summary:

NoSQL, Serverless, DevOps, Social Auth, ... Developers these days want to forget about infrastructure and simply build great scalable apps quickly. This just got easier and I'll prove it to you by live coding an application that you can interact with during the talk (bring your laptop and/or smartphone). While having fun playing with what I code, you'll learn how to easily build any web application - from simple SPAs trough a full micro-service architecture to complex enterprise applications.
