Lukas Taegert-Atkinson
TNG Technology Consulting GmbH, Germany
Talk: Owning your Build-step – Owning your Code

Current maintainer of RollupJS.

After finishing my PhD studying the mathematical properties of black holes, I decided to go for less substance from then on and follow my passion of becoming a professional software developer. For the last six years, I have been doing full-stack consulting work for various clients at TNG Technology Consulting GmbH. This includes a big focus on DevOps: tuning Node servers, tending to Kubernetes clusters and orchestrating CI/CD pipelines are an important part my work.

During this time, I also stumbled upon RollupJS, and while I originally only wanted to push a few improvements to their dead code elimination algorithm, I ended up rewriting it from the ground up. And in the process, I accidentally became acting maintainer of that project :)

Since 2017 I have been continuously working on further improving tree-shaking, adding code-splitting together with Guy Bedford, and many other things to make it a great tool not only for optimizing JavaScript libraries but also for advanced and custom build processes at big companies like Github, Bloomberg, Salesforce and many others.

Troubleshooting your Serverless Node.js doesn't have to be a Pain

AWS ushered in a new landscape for deploying JavaScript applications using Node.js hosted in AWS Lambda, and since then the management simplicity that it provides has made serverless applications and APIs grow exponentially in both popularity and use cases. However, operationally for many starting out, troubleshooting issues can be painful. I'll walk through some techniques to make this easier and provide an evolution of how we can get to a better solution with tips and tools you can use in your serverless deployments right away.

DEITY, Netherlands
Software Architectures Gone Wild

Get ready for a run through the world of Software Architectures! Everyone who works in software has heard of terms like ‘pwa’, ‘monoliths’, ‘headless’ , ‘microservices’ and even ’service oriented architectures’. We all know what they are, but how much do we really know about them? In this talk, we will show you the differences, the similarities, when to use them, when not to use them, the success stories and of course: the massive failures. Get ready for a half an hour of tech-comedy: architecture is going to be fast and fun!

Node.js Technical Steering Committee, USA
Introduction to the AWS CDK: Infrastructure as Node

For years AWS has offered CloudFormation as an approach to Infrastructure as Code (IaC). CloudFormation allows application stacks to be provisioned from JSON or YAML formatted templates. Unfortunately, due to their size and complexity, CloudFormation templates have earned a reputation as being unwieldy to work with. The AWS Cloud Development Kid (CDK) mitigates some of the complexity associated with CloudFormation by allowing developers to programmatically define their cloud architecture using familiar high-level languages such as JavaScript and TypeScript. CDK projects can then be deployed via CloudFormation, while retaining all of the benefits of CloudFormation, such as repeatable deployments and drift detection.

This talk will introduce the CDK in the context of Node.js and demonstrate how it can be leveraged to provision cloud native architectures.

DevOps for Frontend: beyond Desktop Browsers

For the past 10 years we diligently applied DevOps principles to our Backend services, but what about the Frontend? Can we transfer some of that knowledge between these very different, yet very similar, worlds? The answer is yes, and in this talk I'll show you how DevOps principles helped us at DAZN to build our web applications for Smart TV & Gaming Consoles.

Increase App Confidence Using CI/CD and Infrastructure as Code

Ever run code in CI/CD and builds pass only to fail during deployment? This presentation will discuss the advantages of Smoke Test patterns in CI/CD pipelines using Infrastructure as Code (IaC). Learn how teams can leverage automation to ensure apps are tested live in target environments which provide valuable insights pre-deployment. Angel will demonstrate how to leverage IaC to provision infrastructure, deploy apps, test then destroy all the resources created in a single CI/CD pipeline run.

Entelect, South Africa
Automate React Site Deployments from GitHub to S3 & CloudFront

In this talk, I will demonstrate how to create a CI/CD pipeline for a React application in AWS. We'll pull the source code from GitHub and run tests against the application before deploying it to an S3 bucket for static site hosting. The site will then be distributed using CloudFront which will point to the S3 bucket. All of the infrastructure will be built using Terraform. In addition, I'll make use of Terragrunt to show how to create this setup for multiple environments.

TNG Technology Consulting GmbH, Germany
Owning your Build-step – Owning your Code

Ever since JavaScript has become a language for writing applications, build tools and especially bundlers have been around. They solve the discrepancy between writing code that is easy to maintain and writing code that loads efficiently in a browser. But there are advantages to bundling JavaScript code that go well beyond the browser, from cloud functions to servers to command line tools.

RollupJS is special in that it was always designed from the ground up to be a general purpose bundler rather than a frontend specific tool. In this talk, we will have a look in what way other scenarios can profit from bundling. But more importantly, I will show you how RollupJS not only generates superior output in many situations, but how easy it is to tailor its output to custom requirements and non-standard scenarios. We will see how to patch up code, mock and replace dependencies, elegantly inject build information and control the chunk generation when code-splitting, all with a just few lines of code.

The Art of Feature Flagging for Continuous Deployment - Dianing Yudono

Fed up with merge conflicts and system failures after a big release? Feature flags can be your lifesaver! We strive to get new features to the hands of our users as fast as we sustainably can. Some features can take longer to develop and touch other parts of the system. If not handled with care, these kinds of features can result in merge conflicts that keep developers up all night, not to mention the dreaded system failures following a big release. Equipped with feature flags, we can avoid this nightmare and continuously deploy code changes with much ease.

This talk consists of practical information on how to use feature flags as release toggles, the principles around them, as well as their common pitfalls and how to avoid them.

JAM Stack Deployment Platforms and Performance Comparison - Nacho Anaya

Our web app is finally ready to go live but which deployment tool should we use? With the rise of JAMstack, we have a multitude of options from Vercel, Netlify, to Firebase. Certainly, performance is key for us so we want to know which one is the fastest. In this talk, we will do a real-world benchmark comparing the most known JAMstack deployment options and discuss pros and cons.

What's new in Parcel 2 - Jasper De Moor

What's new in Parcel 2, is a talk about what makes Parcel 2 better and all the work that went into making it faster, easier and more scalable than Parcel 1. The talk will cover a short introduction into what Parcel actually is (simple zero config bundler), a couple of new functionalities and why/how we implemented it like improved plugin system, actionable errors w/ diagnostics, bundle/asset graphs, improved performance etc.

Mihai Balaci
Booking.com, Netherlands

I started to seduce computers :) after University with my job in Munich-Germany where I met the mighty Solaris (running on Sparc) and FreeBSD running @ scale. The challenge: how to manage data centers in an automated fashion.

The moment I joined Ubisoft, I started to implement the well known Spotify Squad team model to accelerate time to market and create a better Dev & Ops ownership culture. While learning about DevOps I discovered the Google SRE book. The book changed my view on how to support services in production in a more efficient way. At Adobe I implemented the Embedded SRE model, creating this way full stack software development teams able to support high scale customer facing services in a multi cloud and multi region environment. After 3 years of implementing the embedded SRE mode and Incident Response as a company-wide practice, I felt ready for a new challenge: leading the SRE & Observability organisations @ Booking.com.

There are so many things I learn every day. I am grateful for such an amazing journey :)

Peter Nijenhuis
S0L1D Heroes, Netherlands

DevOps is one of my greatest passions. Guiding teams in the DevOps way of working, helping and facilitating them in achieving the ultimate goal of becoming a high performing team.

What I often see at companies, that they’re trying to adopt the DevOps way of working with a technical approach. They often start with automation. While automation is a huge aspect of DevOps, it isn’t the key to success. Mindset and behavior is in my opinion the key to success. Getting the right culture and a facilitating governance with its processes within the company. Only then you can be successful in adopting the DevOps way of working.
