The growth of Kafka inside an organization sometimes follows the development of the broader Kafka ecosystem over its lifetime. The initial use case may be something conceptually simple, like mainframe offload or point-to-point integration, evoking the simple Large Pipe architectures of Kafka’s infancy. Then those newly populated streams of events present themselves as fertile grounds for real-time analytics, as stream processing applications grow up around them to perform analysis event-by-event, leaving behind legacy ETL processes and their long batch times. Finally, a rich set of event streams gradually comes to describe more and more of the evolving state of the business, forming the substrate on which an ecosystem of event-driven microservices can thrive.This growth in architectural sophistication of an organization’s Kafka usage mirrors the development of those same concepts in the Kafka community over the past decade. In many cases, the process can be played forward at an accelerated rate as leaders draw on lessons learned and concepts developed by the community. This talk traces this development, ending with a comprehensive vision of an event-driven architecture suitable for the next generation of information technology deployments. You’ll leave knowing where you need to go and how this new architectural paradigm will help you get there.
In speaking about better ways of thinking and problem-solving, Linda has introduced Jonathan Haidt's model for the brain. He proposes that the rational, conscious mind is like the rider of an elephant (the emotional, unconscious mind) who directs the animal to follow a path. In Fearless Change, the pattern Easier Path recommends making life easier to encourage reluctant individuals to adopt a new idea. Linda suggests that in conversations with others who see the world differently, we "talk to the elephant" instead of the "rider." That is, don't use logic or facts, but appeal to the emotional brain of the resistor as well as making the path more attractive. There is always the question: What's the best way to talk to the elephant? This presentation will provide some answers. Listeners will learn the best elephant-speak based on the latest research in cognitive neuroscience and also hear suggestions for providing an Easier Path.
For this keynote, Intel Software and TNG Technology Consulting go on a journey to some amazing innovations in Artificial Intelligence. Starting with the concept of Intel® oneAPI and introducing software development tools enabling a multi-architecture future, the keynote will travel in real-time to the AI Labs of TNG in Munich where Thomas Endres, Martin Förtsch and Jonas Mayer will take the audience on an exciting Live Innovation Hacking Tour showcasing the latest capabilities of AI at the edge.
Over the history of software systems, the way we build such artifacts, the way we design them, the way we express them have evolved in seemingly disruptive ways. Even today, the pendulum swings between low ceremony agile methods to more rigid waterfall-ish ones; from big balls of mud to microservices and then back to big balls of microservices. In this talk, we'll examine the past, the present, and the future of software architecture: the role it plays in software systems, and the timeless fundamentals that remain across the fullness of time.
Ein Unternehmen, das sich nach außen hin agil gibt, aber selbst nicht die Motivation und Vision dahinter verinnerlicht, praktiziert »Fake-Agile«. Und fährt die eigene Transition mit Vollgas gegen die Wand! Das gilt insbesondere, wenn es bei der ersten Herausforderung in alte Verhaltensmuster zurückfällt. Thomas Juli und Christian Schneiker gehen anhand eigener Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen auf Ursachen und Folgen von Fake-Agile ein und zeigen auf, was es bedarf, Agilität richtig zu begreifen und ihr volles Potenzial zu entfalten.
Ein Unternehmen, das sich nach außen hin agil gibt und Agilität predigt, selbst aber nicht die Motivation und Vision dahinter verinnerlicht hat, dessen Teams nach Scrum oder Kanban arbeiten, in Wirklichkeit aber nur Post-Its kleben, praktiziert eine Form von »Fake-Agile«. Und fährt die eigene Transition dadurch mit Vollgas gegen die Wand! Dies gilt insbesondere dann, wenn es bei der ersten Herausforderung, die ein Wandel nun einmal mit sich bringt, in alte Verhaltensmuster zurückfällt. Fake-Agile ist Ausdruck von Angst vor Veränderungen, zeugt von Realitätsfremdheit und zeigt einen Mangel an Mut und Commitment, die Zukunft gemeinsam aktiv zu gestalten.
Thomas Juli und Christian Schneiker behaupten, dass Fake-Agile verbreiteter ist als viele denken. Anhand eigener Erfahrungen und Beobachtungen gehen sie auf Ursachen und Folgen von Fake-Agile ein und zeigen auf, was es bedarf, Agilität richtig zu begreifen und ihr volles Potenzial zu entfalten.
Sustainability is often defined as the interconnection of: social connection, economic wellbeing, and a healthy environment. The recent corona pandemic has yet again highlighted the potential as well as the necessity of a fundamental technology: the internet. However, to be sustainable, the internet also needs to assess, mitigate, and live up to its responsibilities for a healthy environment – an element of the equation that is too often neglected. What is the internet’s environmental impact and what would it take for it to be sustainable?
Sustainability is often defined as the interconnection of three elements: social connection, economic wellbeing, and a healthy environment. The recent corona pandemic has yet again highlighted the potential as well as the necessity of a fundamental technology: the internet. The internet has become the lifeline for social connection in times of physical distancing. It is also the primary means by which to still conduct business for those of us that are not on the essential frontlines, in terms of working remotely, providing online services, and monetization, hence being a critical vehicle to safeguard some economic wellbeing. However, to be sustainable, the internet also needs to assess, mitigate, and live up to its responsibilities for a healthy environment – an element of the equation that is too often neglected.
