He’ll also cover different ways to identify and eliminate waste in the development process.

Should you be in the mood for a Star Trek-themed panel discussion, you can join this one to hear industry experts discuss what “cloud native” applications are and how “cloud native” technologies affect software infrastructure.

After a morning of keynote sessions, you can choose your own adventure for the afternoon. Track A presentations will focus on people, skills, and processes (e.g. how to standardize your deployment process), while Track B presentations will focus on tools and technical labs (e.g. why native cloud tech gives companies an edge).
