Powering Public Infrastructure with Kubernetes [B] - Jan Willies, Accenture
Deutsche Bahn Station & Service has a network of thousands of railway stations in Germany, and each has up to dozens of displays to help traveler information. Managing and distributing information to each one has historically grown into a complex process. In this talk we will dive into how Deutsche Bahn overcomes these obstacles with a modern CI-CD pipeline on top of Kubernetes and their use of containers in production.

Tales from Lastminute.com Machine Room: Our Journey Towards a Full On-Premise Kubernetes Architecture in Production [I] - Michele Orsi & Manuel Carlo Ranieri, lastminute.com
We sell travel services to more than 10 million customers worldwide in 15 languages across 35 countries, through hundreds of micro-services.

What happens if you challenge the way you deliver your products with a new infrastructure based on Kubernetes?
You’ll have to face classical developing, deploying and monitoring paradigms and bring everything to an entirely different level. It will also have to kept in mind that the business expects continuous delivery of new features without impact on the final customers experience.

In this presentation we will explore our one-year-long journey to move a full business flow from a well-known legacy platform to Kubernetes through a seamless migration.
We’ll dive into the full tech stack, from the services we give to our development teams to the way we provision servers, without forgetting the secret sauce we applied to make it happen.

We will not hide the failures, the problems and the wrong assumptions we made along the way, but we will celebrate lessons learnt and the goal we achieved; allowing us to boost time-to-market and reliability of our systems.

Cisco's Devnet Goes Cloud Native: A Case Study on Transforming to Cloud Native [I] - Matt Johnson, Cisco
DevNet is Cisco’s developer program through which external developers and partners interface, experiment and innovate using Cisco technologies, products and APIs. Devnet consists of technology innovations, software platforms, and tools needed to reach the full promise of the Software-Driven Enterprise. Our goal is to build the community of enterprise developers and innovators using DevNet’s key principles: Learn, Code, Inspire, and Connect.

DevNet offers multiple services to developers. Content and API navigation via our developer-friendly portal, tailored learning labs that bring Cisco technologies and knowledge home for the developers, sandboxes that enable developers to interact with Cisco products and services in easy and cost effective ways and communities of interest that bring developers together around their main areas of interests.

Devnet has been very successful and as a result, the architecture of the platform coupled with the software transformation that is occurring resulted in the cloudification of the devnet platform. At the core of the cloudification effort is the need to independently scale up the services to accommodate the growing pool of DevNet developers and to rapidly add more services to keep developers engaged and satisfied. Meeting these requirements in an architecture made of multiple monolithic services is expensive and slow. It was time to embark on our journey to transform our offerings into micro services.

Goals of the project:
- Create a high quality developer experience (learn, code, inspire, connect). This is the vision that we needed to set across the Devnet team, Cisco, and our external partners. Setting this vision and getting buy in across all levels of the organization is key.
- Create a flexible and agile platform. With a clear vision and alignment, the next set is to execute on the new architecture and enable the flexibility and scalability requirements.
- Make sure that our investment and resources are building and strengthening the platform. To accomplish this goal, we had to address process issues and invest in the right resources. This is critical to understand at the beginning of the effort and to plan to address and track progress against this important goal.
- BU content onboarding as strategic and technical advantage. Since the hard work was accomplished in the first 3 goals, this fourth one was achieved as a matter of addressing these Bus early and getting not only their buyin but more importantly, co-development alignment.

This presentation will discuss the effort we completed in taking Devnet to production with Kubernetes, Prometheus, and monitoring enhancements required. The lessons learned and sample applications created in the developer.cisco.com learning labs will be presented.

Cloud Native Transformation: How Ticketmaster is Changing Culture and Speeding Up Delivery [B] - Bindi Belanger, Ticketmaster
Ticketmaster redefined an entire market by being the first to put computers in box offices and we now have four decades worth of products and tools that connect fans with the live events they love. With over 21 ticketing systems across the world and massive global technology team that continues to create and deliver new products and services, we must continually increase our speed to delivery to keep pace with our competitors. Historically, production scale infrastructure required significant lead time and often resulted in product launch delays or painful scaling lessons. As we continue to transition to a completely Cloud Native product offering, we’re now able to deploy infrastructure within a matter of minutes instead of months, thereby allowing our development teams to quickly build and release new products and services. In this talk, we’ll discuss the challenges that we’ve faced along the way and how we’ve made organizational and process changes to help us arrive where we are today.

Case Study Conrad Electronic – From a Static Infrastructure to Continuous Delivery and the Cloud in One Step [B] - Tobias Baumgart, Conrad Electronic & Sebastian Scheele, Loodse
For many years, the absence of scalable QA environments has been a bottleneck within the development flow at Conrad Electronic – with major impact on overall speed and efficiency of the production lifecycle. To increase flexibility and scalability, Conrad Electronic decided to move from a static infrastructure to a dynamic scaling based on Google Cloud and Kubernetes. In this case study, Tobias Baumgart and Sebastian Scheele will show how the new cloud native infrastructure and Continuous Delivery is being implemented, what major challenges have been met throughout the process, how they have been solved, and how the new cloud set-up looks like.

Getting To, and Through, Our First Black Friday with Critical Apps on Kubernetes [I] - Arnaldo Pereira, Luiza Labs
I'll talk about how we adopted kubernetes in Luiza Labs, where we develop and operate the sales channels of Magazine Luiza, a Brazilian retail company of > 4 USD billion in anual revenue.

How we deploy the apps, and ended up writing an open source deployment tool; how we scale our clusters; contingency plans; cultural impact on application development; ultimately how kubernetes helped us going through a black friday smoothly
