Over the last 5 years, Netflix has been pioneering a software development model based on full ownership of the end-to-end development cycle. This approach, known as the Full Cycle Developer model, has significantly changed the way Netflix engineering teams own and operate code. With a culture based on concepts like Freedom and Responsibility, and Context not Control, how did Netflix transform its approach to engineering and operations? This talk describes our journey.
AT&T Israel: Telco Quality @ The Speed of an Internet Media Company
AT&T VP, Israel General Manager @AT&T

Discover Weekly – How autonomy saved one of Spotify’s most loved features from being killed
ex-Spotify Agile coach, Consultant, Author of Kanban in Action
“I would have killed that if it was just me, 100%,” said Spotify founder and CEO Daniel Ek about Discover Weekly, a feature that would become one of Spotify’s most loved product features, almost a brand in itself. Designers and senior engineers were equally skeptical, but the team was still able to ship the feature. In this talk, you’ll learn how Spotify’s organizational culture of Agile management and autonomous teams enables innovation, using the Discover Weekly feature as an example.

We’ll better understand what a DevOps Culture is and how the DevOps team is enabling the Agile autonomous teams to work independently by developing new infrastructure projects.

DevSecOps – Closing the Loop from Detection to Remediation
Shiri Arad Ivtsan
Senior Product Manager @ WhiteSource
DevSecOps sets out to relieve the costly and stressful delays that can occur when security testing is performed late in the game, by setting up processes and tools for “shifting left” so security testing can happen early and often. As organizations continue to embrace this DevSecOps approach, testing tools and practices are integrated even further left in the development pipeline. In this session, we will discuss: Where and how developers are implementing DevSecOps in the SDLC; Best practices for developers to adopt DevSecOps and more efficiently handle vulnerabilities; Necessary steps for implementing a process for detection, prioritization, and remediation of open source vulnerabilities.

In order to overcome these challenges we recently adopted the hypothesis driven development approach. Why did we choose this approach? How did we implement it? How do we measure success, value to customers? This and more will be discussed in my talk.
