Keynote Panel Discussion: The Future is Cloud Native: How Projects Like Kubernetes, Fluentd, OpenTracing, and Linkerd Will Help Shape Modern Infrastructure - Moderated by Chris Aniszczyk, Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Many of today’s software-defined organizations, like Ticketmaster, ShowMax and VSCO, look to cloud native projects for crucial management and maintenance within their ever-changing infrastructures. Chris Aniszczyk, COO of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, will moderate an introspective panel – featuring cloud native insiders like Keiko Harada, Ian Lewis and Eduardo Silva – to discuss how these thriving open source projects will help shape modern infrastructure. This expert panel will also address what it takes to develop meaningful cloud native systems, how these technologies fit into the overall stack, how to foster committed maintainers for emerging cloud native projects, and much more.

Keynote: The Makers of Marvels: How Developers Are Rebuilding the Enterprise, One Brick at a Time - Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation

History teaches us that astonishing feats occur not when a singular leader envisions them, but when a mass of skilled workers collaborate to transform that vision into something material. The Pyramids of Giza, for example, were not built overnight by a Pharaoh, but constructed by tens of thousands of workers over a period of years. Today’s “pyramid” is quite a bit smaller, but a wonder of the world in its own right: The iPhone has transformed the world as we know it -- but most of its power comes from the app store, which offers thousands of apps created from the imaginations of thousands of developers. These developers are the makers of marvels in our time. They instantiate the very concept of digital transformation -- that notion of infrastructure disruption and re-assembly on the mind of every CIO. Business development is driven by software development, and software development is shaped by developers in the open source community.

In her talk, Abby Kearns empowers developers to think of themselves as the doers and makers who hold the key to unlocking digital transformation. She will cover the importance of diversity among developers for the technology industry to evolve and to reflect its user base, and will highlight the key open source concepts and technologies powering this trans-industrial transformation.

Keynote: Blockchain Security & Why It Matters - Daichi Iwata, Head of FinTech Business Development Office, NEC Corporation

New technologies, namely driven by open source communities, are accelerating digital transformation. Blockchain is one of such technologies. Unique feature about Blockchain, compared to other technologies, is power of trust needed in digital age. Its power enables a person, or small community to be as trustful as big enterprises. Blockchain also empowers a person to control back ownership of their digital assets including personal information. These power of Blockchain comes from its security. Blockchain security will be increasingly important in coming digital age. NEC Research Lab in EU has been leading academic research on Blockchain security since the beginning of bitcoin. With strong background of Blockchain security research lab, NEC will contribute more on open source community.

Keynote: Migrating Legacy Monoliths to Cloud Native Microservices Architectures on Kubernetes - Dan Kohn, Executive Director, Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Cloud Native architectures, such as those built on Kubernetes, are envied for their ability to segment different parts of an application into microservices that can separately be containerized, so that each microservice can be written in its own language, with its own framework, and its unique set of libraries. This has been shown to significantly increase developer and team productivity by decoupling dependencies between different parts of a team. However, most legacy code consists of a large monolithic code base, not microservices applications. This talk will look at several real-world cases where existing monolithic, legacy applications deployed in multi-billion dollar companies were slowly evolved into cloud native microservices architectures on Kubernetes. Demonstrating that the cloud native architecture is suitable across most categories of computing.

Keynote: Securing Open Source Software - Nicko van Someren, Chief Technology Officer, The Linux Foundation

Open Source Software is at the heart of the internet and as a result much of the core infrastructure on which we all rely is built through collaborative and open development. Many of the open source components on which we rely have evolved over extended periods of time. While open development make public code review easier it also presents unique challenges for the secure development process. In this talk Nicko van Someren, the Linux Foundation CTO, will examine what makes open source security different, where it is easier and where it is harder than close source, and how the Linux Foundation's Core Infrastructure Initiative is working to make it better.
