4:15pm: David Skinner, Head of Architecture @ Jaguar Land Rover

"Enabling Mach at Scale through Platform Engineering and DevOps"

In this talk, we will walk through the key strategies to enable a MACH strategy enterprise wide with some practical examples, focusing on how DevOps and Platform Engineering can be the key accelerators for your business.

4:45pm: Anna Aitchison, Senior DevOps Engineer @ CallCare

"Kubernetes Under the Hood"

Kubernetes is easy. Well, sort of: it's easy if you get a pre-made cluster, only want the basics, speak YAML and have good luck! But what if you need to brew your own cluster? What if you mess up the cluster by accident? What if you want something more? Or even if you just want to understand it? This talk is about how Kubernetes actually works: how it talks, remembers, how it's created and how it's not that scary when you get to know it.

5:15pm: Mick Morse, Senior Architect @ Slalom Build

"Building out a scalable effective SRE Team"

SREs play a crucial role in resolving issues and improving the availability, observability and reliability of an application. There are many different implementations of SRE teams, depending on company goals. In this talk we’ll discuss some of those implementations, typical team visions and objectives that you can instil into your team

5:40pm: Danielle Summers, Tech Lead @ Redgate Software

"Developer Culture"

In my career, I’ve seen multiple shifts in Developer Culture, from “the tech guys that do IT things” to core components of any business.

Recently, there has been another shift with the rapid uptake of DevOps across the industry, where Developers now throw problems over the “wall” to the DevOps team, or in some cases will actively fight to maintain control of aspects of a product that are better handled by someone else.

In this talk, I'll explore some of my experiences managing teams who fought against DevOps culture, why they acted that way and how I resolved these conflicts, ultimately improving team morale, trust and performance.
