Every organization is asking developers to work harder, do more with less and ship applications faster. But with modern, cloud-native environments, complexity and security can get in the way. The question becomes, how can the AppSec and platform engineering teams work together more effectively to make this a reality? There are a number of ways to help both AppSec and platform engineering teams collaborate more effectively, reduce their cognitive load (or overload!) and increase velocity and productivity.

In this Techstrong Learning Experience, Joe Pelletier of Fairwinds and Dean Agron of Oxeye speak with Kendall Miller to discuss why AppSec and platform engineering teams need to align on business goals and how they can combine best practices to speed development velocity.

You’ll learn:

  • Why AppSec and platform engineering matters
  • Key trends for both teams
  • How increased cognitive load slows velocity
  • Best practices for integrating security into a larger developer platform vision

Every year, the process of software delivery becomes more complex, and developers find themselves coding less and worrying more about infrastructure, deployment, security and operations. Enter platform engineering – it strives to minimize the operational burden on development teams by providing all the tools, processes and automation developers need to streamline software development not only safely but also at scale.
In this program, Weaveworks will show you how to use Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), Cluster API for Azure (CAPZ), Azure Service Operator (ASO) and Weave GitOps Enterprise (WGE) to build a safe, resilient, scalable and future-proof platform engineering practice. We will explore GitOps’ essential role in a platform engineering system and draw a roadmap for enabling developers to deliver features autonomously. All while DevOps and SRE teams maintain visibility and adherence to best practices at any scale.
Register today to learn:
  • How to design an internal developer platform (IDP) that empowers engineering teams, removes silos, reduces handoffs, and consolidates knowledge. 
  • How to automatically create and hydrate ephemeral clusters on pull requests.
  • How to streamline the life cycle of Kubernetes clusters at large scale utilizing CAPZ and GitOpsSets
  • How to reduce risk via staged progressive rollout
  • How to monitor applications and services from a large number of Kubernetes clusters
  • How to architect modular, reusable and extensible GitOps workflows across any flavor of Kubernetes (self-managed like K3s or managed AKS) or location (cloud, private, hybrid and edge)
  • How to leverage Azure-native services and tools, such as Azure Fleet Manager and managed Prometheus and Grafana to build your platform engineering practice

Developer experience and productivity are top-of-mind this year as organizations sharpen a focus on engineering efficiency. In a bid to become the central hub for developer interactions, internal developer portals (IDPs) have landed on the short list of priorities for engineering teams in every industry. But with just a few years on the shelf, many IDP programs are beginning to fail or flail. Why?

In this playbook-style program, Mike Moore, Cortex Head of Solutions Engineering, and Lauren Craigie, Head of Product and Market Research will draw on the hundreds of conversations he’s had with engineering teams working to deploy an internal developer portal to offer a new take on what works, what doesn’t and what might be missing from your IDP strategy.

Attendees will walk away with a clear playbook for evaluating their first (or next) IDP—regardless of whether they choose to build or buy. We welcome those just beginning their search, those looking to extend open source foundations or those simply curious about this fast-growing space!

According to IDC, most companies use anywhere from six to 20 or more tools to track and monitor their software development life cycle (SDLC), leaving them with huge operational costs and inefficient DevOps workflows. Consolidating tools can help-but where do you start? And how can you consolidate without making things difficult for your teams?

In this program, JFrog’s Principal Support Engineer Vignesh Surendrababu shares practical insights on effectively approaching tool consolidation within your organization while maximizing value and keeping developers happy and productive.

You will learn about:

  • Key considerations for tool consolidation, including capabilities, impact and ROI
  • Overcoming challenges and successfully consolidating tools
  • Real-world consolidation use cases, from enhancing security to optimizing artifact storage
  • How JFrog can support your organization’s tool consolidation journey
