Marc Cluet - DOXELONA & Nationwide - @lynxman You can download his presentation here. DevOps in a highly regulated environment - Aiming high like a Unicorn in skates Fintech is one of the most exciting sectors, advancing rapidly and creating new ways to deal with governance and compliance required in the Financial Industry. Old financial institutions with legacy and regulatory process already in place are also transforming to be competitive in this market. I'll tell you some of the solutions that we have envisioned at Nationwide to leap forward and be more agile and useful for our members.


Bazel is a build system. Bored yet? Bazel is a build system where you declare your builds in terms of binaries and tests; the library knows all the compiler flags. It produces byte-for-byte identical outputs in a hermetic sandbox, and pins the version of everything including the compiler. It can use remote build farms and caches, and decide that 100k source files *don’t* need to be rebuilt in 200ms. This isn’t your grandad’s Maven Bazel is great for DevOps engineers. We SREs should be software engineers, and we should be good ones. Bazel is a useful and interesting software engineering tool that everyone should be at least familiar with. We'll run over its design and features, then build a simple Go project up from scratch.


Serverless Containers with Knative and Cloud Run When you build an app, you typically need to choose agility with serverless or flexibility with containers, but not both. But why does it have to be that way? Wouldn’t it be nice to have the best of both worlds? In this talk, we’ll explore the open source project Knative and its managed version Cloud Run. Through a series of demos, we’ll see how these projects enable you to deploy and manage containers in a serverless way on wherever you want, on-prem or in the cloud. As a long-time Java and C# developer, Mete likes to compare the two ecosystems. Prior to Google, he worked at Microsoft, Skype, Adobe, EMC, and Nokia building apps and services on various web, mobile and cloud platforms.
