  • Devops culture transformation at scale at Credit Suisse

    The talk covers our DevOps-journey on a mission-critical application (4k+ user, 40+ developers/multiple locations). I will explain the cultural change, technical setup and best practices: How we shifted the culture of control & escalation to collaboration (incl. Biz) by fostering the team’s autonomy and engineering excellence. How we leveraged feedback loops across all stages (pipeline, monitoring, in-app-feedback, etc.) measured based on defined metrics. As a result we have increased the release cadence from 4/y to bi-weekly, easing the burden of release & roll-out through canary releases.

    Nicolas Bizard

    Nic has been developing banking software with Agile methods and more recently with Devops, improving customer satisfaction and fun at work for the best of the last 15 years.

  • x2Lab Measurement System - flexible Prüfstandssoftware zur Messdatenerfassung

    Die automatische Erfassung der Messdaten ab Anlagen und Produkten (in unseren Beispielen Motoren, Lüfter, Klimaanlagen, etc. ) sind für durchgängige Tests in der Industrie eine herausfordernde Voraussetzung. Anfragen zur Entwicklung von Messsysteme aus verschiedenen Industrien haben uns dazu bewogen, einen generisches Framework zu bauen. So kann der Kunde das Messsystem auch für Produktserien weiter verwenden. Damit das Messsystem generisch wird und bleibt stand die Architektur und Implementationsmethodik von Anfang an im Fokus. In unserem Referat geben wir unsere Erfahrungen dazu weiter.

  • Die 7 Stolperfallen auf dem Weg zu erfolgreichem DevOps

    Seit geraumer Zeit geistert der Begriff DevOps durch die IT. Vorreiter auf dem Gebiet wie Neflix oder Google sind unter anderem in der Lage, ad-hoc auf veränderte Kundenbedürfnisse zu reagieren. Die Rolle der IT wandelt sich aktuell fast überall von einem Nischendasein hin zu einem Kernelement des Geschäfts. Zunehmend setzen dabei auch Unternehmen abseits der klassischen IT-Branche in der IT-Tranformation auf DevOps. Teilweise ohne genau zu verstehen, was alles zu dazugehört. Nach DevOps-Einführung setzt häufig eine Phase der Ernüchterung ein. Die grossen Erwartungen, die die Erfolgsgeschichten der Vorreiter versprechen, werden häufig von der Realität eingeholt. In dieser Session zeigen wir auf, was DevOps eigentlich alles umfasst und schälen aus unserer Praxiserfahrung die 7 grössten Misserfolgsfaktoren heraus, die es als Stolperfallen zu vermeiden gilt.

10.45 – 11.15 Session 1
  • Learn from your bugs and your testers: 10 years on Boeing 777

    Airline pilots like myself are trained on flight simulators. Those are horribly complicated machines with several million lines of code and hardware parts.
    Every incident and accident in aviation is analyzed so it won’t happen again. A tester has a role in the feedback loop to improve the business. Practical examples will be shown.

He designed a test automation framework to speed up testing and explored where the issues encountered came from.

  • Wie unsere EnTe die Delivery Teams zum Schwimmen bringt

    Die klassischen Bausteine Schulung, Beratung, Coaching reichen beim Change zur Agilität für viele Teams nicht aus. Spätestens beim Thema
    Testautomatisierung kommt die Aussage, dass man ja schon würde aber der Aufwand zu gross ist und die Zeit dazu fehlt. Das Ganze noch mit Microservices umzusetzen, scheint dann vollends den Bogen zu überspannen. Aus diesem Grund ergänzten wir das Vorgehen mit einem «Enabling Team» (EnTe) und die Skalierung erfolgt via Community of Practice. Ich zeige den Aufbau, das Vorgehen und was wir erreicht haben aber auch den Weg mit Steinen, Umwegen und Rutschpartien.

  • Die Farbe der Banane oder warum unser Testing nicht bei der Auslieferung aufhört

    Im Security Monitoring müssen Sicherheitsvorfälle in IT-Umgebungen schnell erkannt werden. Riesige Mengen an Logdaten müssen effizient verarbeitet werden. Das SIEM-System spürt bekannte Muster auf, kombiniert Ereignisse und relativiert aufgrund von klassifizierten Asset-Listen. Diese Logik wird mit grossem Aufwand programmiert und parametrisiert. Passt alles zusammen werden Sicherheitsvorfälle erkannt und man kann darauf reagieren. Was aber, wenn sich nur ein kleines Detail ändert? Das Logformat ist nach dem Update anders oder eine kleine Konfigurationsänderung hat ungeahnte Auswirkungen. In der langen Kette genügt es, wenn eine Komponente ausschert und schon bleiben Vorfälle unentdeckt. Um die Sicherheit zu gewährleisten, muss die gesamte Kette stetig durchgetestet werden.

  • Dev, Ops and DevOps at Google

    Many people think Google does DevOps, many others think Google does Site Reliability Engineering… And both are correct! This session looks at how Google approaches Software Engineering, both practically and philosophically. It explains how Site Reliability Engineering fits in, how it works, and where it is used. Google is not a typical organisation, so finally we look at some of the ways that these approaches can be implemented at other organisations, and why it’s important to do so.

  • Quality KPIs for Enterprise Companies based on 100% Open-source

    The majority of enterprise companies steer their development teams with static reports and outdated metrics – wrong decisions are made on the basis of inaccurate high-level KPIs.

    Qualysofts Telemetry Dashboards offer our customers a solution that enables a deep insight into the efficiency of their software development and testing processes and the software quality of their products. Based on real-time dashboards, our customers can observe the current trends at any time and thus identify and introduce improvements and continuously monitor their impact.

    By starting with the right KPIs, the Telemetry Solution is quickly set up and the implementation and testing teams benefit directly from it. The solution is then gradually expanded to include KPIs for mid-level and senior management.

    The best thing about it? No expensive tool with high licensing costs is necessary. The technical solution is based on 100% Open-source tools, is license-free, can be easily integrated into the existing IT landscape and expanded according to individual needs.

  • Warum Agile (Testing) nicht funktioniert!

    Scrum ist einfach. 3 Rollen, 5 Ereignisse, 3 Artefakte. Trotzdem scheitern Agile Vorhaben genau so oft wie im Wasserfall. Oder es mangelt an der Qualität. Gerade Tester beklagen sich oft über die Agilität und wünschen sich den guten alten Wasserfall zurück. In diesem Vortrag wird ergründet wieso Agile (Testing) Vorhaben scheitern, was man daraus lernen kann und welche Good Practices sich für das Testing ergeben.

  • DevOps despite regulations

    Many enterprises adopted DevOps practises in the last couple of years. But according to Forrester, actual release velocity has remained somewhat constant. Why is that? If you take a deeper look into the software delivery processes of large enterprises, you will recognize a lot of time is still being wasted in manual handshakes.

    Just think about the change-advisory boards (CAB) in ITIL-based organizations, requiring a change approval by almost all the IT department. Is this still necessary today? Short answer: No. With cloud governance and modern DevSecOps practises you can automate most of the topics around compliance, security and service management.

    This presentation will teach you the concepts to empower DevOps in your organization.

    What has not changed is the need for stability, resilience and scalability – it has actually increased. To answer how this continuous change impacts performance testing we share some of our own data points and examples to illustrate our journey. We will touch aspects that have stayed relevant for the last 20 years as well as what we adjusted in recent times.
    We will address in this session:

    • Looking at data points for changes, problems and testing
    • Examples where a traditional performance testing approach failed
    • Lessons learned from failure and derived best practices
    • Recommendations, considerations & challenges in the modern world

  • Using machine learning supported advanced analytics for a shift-right testing environment

    Over the past decade the software development landscape has changed immensely. The success of agile and DevOps approaches have lead to consumer centric software so complex that it has become impossible to test in a traditional sense.
    We discuss a new metric driven approach to ensure software quality in a shift-right testing environment. Providing focused analytics to all developers and combining with ML to merge all metrics into a single Software Quality Index. This finally results into a new artificial team member, the master of software quality.

  • DevSecOps and the Cloud

    When adopting the cloud there are many technologies and permutations to choose from. Take deploying Kubernetes – it can be deployed natively or alternatively a managed service can be used (ie AWS Elastic Kubernetes Service). What are the trade-offs choosing lower level vs. higher level. How does this impact your DevOps or Site Reliability Engineering practice?  How does this impact your DevSecOps practice?   This speech will take a practical view on deploying services (like Kubernetes, Kafka) in the cloud in different manners.

  • Hey team – let’s talk about quality

    We talk about test, but what does that really mean?
    There is so much more to quality than just testing. We need to ensure that we do not settle for releasing “flawless” software, but also take into consideration that UX should be high quality for the users.
    When I talk to the teams, I would rather talk about how we ensure good quality for our products, than just about which tests we need to do. This will ensure, that everybody will be more aware about how to think quality throughout the whole process, from starting a task and until it has been released to production and hit the users.

  • A Guide to Event-driven SRE-inspired DevOps: The end of your monolithic release process

    While software architects have broken their monoliths into event-driven service architectures, many DevOps architects are still building monolithic inspired release pipelines. This results in complex pipeline code, tight integration of process and tools, lengthy diagnostics sessions to fix broken pipelines and puts strains on the underlying resources that build, deploy, test and validate.
    In this session we introduce a new approach: Event-driven Continuous Delivery and Operation Automation for modern DevOps! This approach decouples the declaration of processes for delivery and remediation from tooling. It uses an “everything as code” approach which includes deployment, testing, quality gate, observability, promotion and remediation definitions.
    One open source tool which implements this new approach is Keptn which was heavily inspired by Google’s SRE practice around SLIs & SLOs. Join us, see Keptn in action and get inspired on what the future of DevOps tooling can look like.

  • How Mindful Testing and other "simple" techniques can increase the efficiency of your testing team

    Today’s testing work in Agile and especially DevOps teams is very different from anything we’ve done previously. On the one hand, we are asked to test quickly in order not to delay the release of our features into production, but on the other hand, we are constantly reminded that we are the last line of defence before our applications are deployed to all our paying customers – this means that we better not miss any big issue with our very short testing operations.

    How can we test fast but also do it thoroughly? We need to get more information into the process faster, we need to qualify this information in order to focus on the important things and leave out the irrelevant ones, and more importantly, we need to be as focused as possible on the tests we are running.

    In this session, we will introduce a number of techniques to help you and your team provide excellent testing results faster and in more focused operations. We will review tools such as Mindful Testing, Negative Brainstorming, Walking the Dog, 3rd Party Interrogations, and Support Reviews to help testers to improve the effectiveness of their work and provide good results, faster.

  • KEYNOTE: Building and Scaling a High-Performance Culture

    As the research in Accelerate and in the DevOps Handbook shows, high-performing organizations deliver more rapidly, more repeatably, and more reliably. And far more important than any tool or technology, it is the culture that differentiates a nimble and innovative organization from a lumbering leviathan. This keynote breaks down several key elements of a high-performance engineering culture, based on the speaker’s experience leading high-performing organizations at Google and eBay.

    We will discuss team Autonomy and Accountability — how high-performing companies organize themselves out of small, cross-functional teams, and how those teams own their destiny from idea to development to deployment to operations. Next, we will discuss Trust and Collaboration — how we need to foster a culture of trust both among the individuals on a team, as well as between the teams themselves. Last, we will instill Pragmatism and Progress in the product development process — how we need to clearly define the business problem we are solving, and solve that problem in the simplest, most straightforward way possible.

    You will take away actionable insights you can apply in your own organization.
