February 2017
When: Feb 11-16, 2017
Where: San Francisco, CA
What: Cloud Native, Microservices, Security, and Scale

Cloud Native, Microservices, and containers are big buzz words right now, and they should be – as they are allowing companies to become more agile and release more rapidly, all at incredible scale. In this session we’ll take a look at what it means to be Cloud Native, what makes a service a Microservice, and how to properly scale and secure a rapidly growing and constantly changing network with tools such as Kubernetes and Project Calico.

When: May 23-24, 2017
Where: San Francisco, CA
What: Building Your API for Longevity

One of the greatest challenges to developing an API is ensuring that your API lasts. After all, you don’t want to have to release and manage multiple versions of your API just because you weren’t expecting users to use it a certain way, or because you didn’t anticipate far enough down the roadmap. In this session we’ll talk about the challenge of API Longevity, as well as ways to increase your API lifecycle including having a proper mindset, careful design, agile user experience and prototyping, best design practices including hypermedia, and the challenge of maintaining persistence.

DevNet Create Website

When: May 31 – June 1, 2017
Where: San Francisco, CA
What: Adding Enterprise Networking and Security to Kubernetes

Every enterprise needs the ability to innovate and adapt – but they must be able to do so at scale, in a secure manner, with resiliency. In this session we’ll cover why networking and security inside of Kubernetes is crucial, as well as how to scale your container network and provide fine-grained cluster isolation using Project Calico.

CoreOS Fest Website

June 2017
When: Jun 7, 2017
Where: San Francisco, CA
What: Rapid API Design and Parallel Development

With advances in technology, it is now easier than ever for teams to work together, designing the perfect API, reducing rework, autogenerating documentation and mobile SDKs, while also reducing time to production by allowing parallel development of the API and its dependencies (such as mobile applications). In this presentation we’ll take a look at some of these new technologies, the benefits and risks, talk about best practices, while also working together to quickly build a mock of our API, generate the documentation, and build the iOS SDK – all in roughly 45 minutes.
