Building Cross-Platform Apps with Flutter
Sign up here: ​https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffQc_2Eu--aoE9E3cLq9TWYkcn8PigEF1qRY1szP6xpRdyeQ/viewform​​​

This session will be a kickstarter for developing mobile apps with the Flutter SDK.
Flutter is a very young SDK from Google to build apps for both Android and iOS using a single code base. Unlike other SDKs, Flutter compiles to native and looks native.
Flutter uses Dart, an OOP language. Prior experience with Dart is not required to attend this session.
This session will cover the workflow involved in creating a flutter application from scratch. Widgets, stateless widgets, state and stateful widgets and other most important aspects of Flutter will be demonstrated in this session.
You'll learn to use the pub repository to quickly add modules to your project.
By the end of this session, you'll be able to develop amazing app experiences with Flutter and Dart.

Check out www.flutter.io/

Preparing for the Flutter App Development Workshop:
System Requirements:
1. You need a fast PC, preferably above 4GB of RAM and a dual core CPU.
2. Install the following software:
—> Android Studio: https://developer.android.com/studio#downloads
(Install the recommended package for your OS)
Open Android Studio after installation and perform the default/full installation. This will download more SDKs and packages. This is a long process, make sure you have at least 4GB of internet bandwidth to finish setting up Android Studio.
—> Flutter SDK: https://flutter.dev/docs/get-started/install
Download the zip file for your platform (for example, if you have a Windows computer, download the Windows zip file). Finish setting up the SDK and add the directory to your PATH.
 If you have an Apple computer, then you may optionally install Xcode from the Mac App Store to use the iOS Simulator.
3. You need an Android Phone to run your application. Make sure that you enable “Developer Options” in your phone. The general procedure to do this is by tapping the “Build Number” option “eight times” in the “About Phone” setting. This procedure can vary, please Google this up with your phone’s model, say “how to enable developer options on Nokia 7.1”
You need a good internet connection (approx 5GB) to finish setting up your computer.

Sign up here: ​https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffQc_2Eu--aoE9E3cLq9TWYkcn8PigEF1qRY1szP6xpRdyeQ/viewform​​​

Are you productive while working on your microservices-based project? Or is your laptop on
fire? Thanks to Red Hat OpenShift we are very efficient when it comes to deploying and managing
distributed and containerized applications. But can we say the same about development?

Coming from a traditional background we are used to run our application locally,
being able to debug, and reason about it with ease.
We are spoiled by the undisturbed inner-loop development cycle of coding, building,
and testing so we take it for granted.

We also have a desire to run everything locally, so we can have a fast feedback loop.
It's not really feasible to spin up even a medium-sized distributed system on your own machine.
Wouldn't it be better to run your code directly in a shared remote cluster?
In this workshop we will show you tools that will make you a productive developer, able to nail
down issues quickly, and confident about the changes you are about to ship. And all of it in the
cloud.

An Operator is an application-specific controller that extends the Kubernetes API to create, configure, and manage instances of complex stateful applications on behalf of a Kubernetes user. It builds upon the basic Kubernetes resource and controller concepts but includes domain or application-specific knowledge to automate common tasks. This workshop focuses on writing and testing the operator using operator-SDK. The audience for this talk will be developer, tester or a person who pretty much works with operators on Kubernetes. This workshop needs a basic understanding of Kubernetes, containers, and Golang.
Key areas that will be covered:
- Understanding Kubernetes API (GVR, Kind/Resources)
- Artifact (CRD, CR, CSV) & OLM
- Operators pattern & operator-framework
- Getting started with writing an operator in golang
- Understanding the Controllers & Control loop code.
- Desired vs Observed State in Kubernetes
- Reconciliation loop
- Operator demo & local development.

Sign up here:​https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSffQc_2Eu--aoE9E3cLq9TWYkcn8PigEF1qRY1szP6xpRdyeQ/viewform​​​

Traditionally, many enterprises built monolithic apps with the whole stack optimized to run many apps on an app server. In moving toward cloud-native microservices, serverless, and event-driven apps, developers want to take advantage of that operational model. This lab shows how Quarkus has amazingly fast boot time, incredibly low RSS memory, and offers near-instant scale-up and high-density memory utilization in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes.
You’ll get a hands-on introduction to Quarkus for Java developers using Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces based on Eclipse Che to develop Quarkus apps. We will cover:
- Basic introduction to Quarkus
- How to test and debug Quarkus apps
- Building high-performance, native Quarkus apps
- Deploying cloud-native Quarkus apps to Kubernetes Platform

Cloud-native applications with dapr and OpenShift
Dapr is Microsoft's latest new open source project. Dapr is an event driven, portable distributed application runtime. It supports many programming languages and it is a natural fit for Kubernetes and OpenShift. Dapr provides consistency and portability via standard open APIs. Dapr's building blocks enable easy, event-driven, stateful, microservices development. Dapr handles state, resource bindings and pub/sub messaging, which enable event-driven, resilient architectures that scale. In this presentation, we will cover how engineering teams can leverage Dapr with OpenShift for the application development, writing high-performance, highly-scalable applications using OpenShift. We will start with a high level Dapr architecture overview. Then go through an example how to develop Dapr microservices, and look at the deployment process to get it up to OpenShift. We will use OpenShift to fine tune the performance.

Automating OpenShift compliance scanning
Checking for security compliance is overall hard. Doing so for a cluster of hundreds of machines is even worse.

Compliance is hard and tedious work, especially on a cluster scale. There are many checkboxes to tick; the controls in the standards are not easy to interpret; and more so, compliance needs to be reached, but also maintained and continuously monitored.
We aimed to address this issue by building the compliance-operator.

This project aims to aid OpenShift deployers to verify, monitor, and ultimately achieve their compliance targets in an automated fashion by checking both the OpenShift configuration and the Linux nodes that form that cluster.

Data Gateways: Legacy data for microservices
Application architecture evolution has fragmented the backend implementation into independent microservices and functions. However there is still a gap on the way this evolution has dealt with data as it tends to avoid dealing with static environments. At the same time, microservices encourage developers to create new polyglot data persistence layers that then, need to be composite to deliver business value. How can we apply the knowledge from API gateways to these new data stores?

In this session we will talk about:
How data gateways act like API gateways to offer a secured abstraction layer on top of the physical data stores,
the different data gateway types and architectures, and

Today, docker is synonymous to containers. But Docker is just one way to go about containers. There’s a new way to work with containers, all the while using the same commands you used for Docker and its what this talk is all about - Podman. What is Podman? Podman is a daemonless container engine for developing, managing, and running OCI Containers on your Linux System. Containers can either be run as root or in rootless mode. Simply put: `alias docker=podman`. As much as both are very similar, there are very important underlying differences and security features that may make podman appealing choice for some.

Preserving privacy while sharing data
Deep learning and machine learning more broadly depend on large quantities of data to develop accurate predictive models. In areas such as medical research, sharing data among institutions can lead to even greater value. However, data often includes personally identifiable information that we may not want to (or even be legally allowed to) share with others. Traditional anonymization techniques only help to a degree.

In this talk, Red Hat's Gordon Haff will share with you the active activity taking place in academia, open source communities, and elsewhere into techniques such as differential privacy and secure multi-party computation. The goal of this research and ongoing work is to help individuals and organizations work collaboratively while preserving the anonymity of individual data points.

Hybrid Cloud Storage
The values offered by public cloud services are clear for analytic workloads. Specialized hardware such as GPUs for doing AI/ML may make more sense to effectively lease with Opex rather than invest Capex on infrastructure that is not continually utilized. However, it may not make sense to build large data sets inside public clouds due both to the cost multiple compared to building out and maintaining private infrastructure and the lock-in nature of using public cloud services. These drivers then lead toward a hybrid architecture where large data sets are built and maintained in private clouds but compute/analytic clusters are spun up in public clouds to the actual analytics on these data sets.

Maintaining a hybrid architecture as described introduces challenges with latency and bandwidth to the public cloud compute cluster from the private data lake. In this presentation we describe research being done at by Mass Open Cloud and Red Hat researchers to build caching solutions to maximize throughput of these leased analytics clusters and avoid re-reading the same data from the external private data lake.

Kernel Techniques to Optimize Memory Bandwidth with Predictable Latency
Consolidating multiple applications on the same multi-core platform while preserving their performance is of the utmost importance in real-time systems. A similar problem has emerged in cloud computing systems. Meeting SLAs requires isolating the performance of primary workloads from co-located noisy neighbors. Lack of performance isolation arises due to contention over shared memory resources, such as last-level cache space, main memory bandwidth, and DRAM banks. Hardware vendors like Intel have started introducing techniques like Resource Director Technology (RDT) to manage shared memory resources. In the context of RDT, a promising feature is Memory Bandwidth Allocation (MBA).

In this presentation, we study whether MBA is capable of providing strong isolation via main memory bandwidth management. In doing so, we make a series of surprising discoveries. Come to the presentation to have a look at these and see joint management of main memory and LLC bandwidth by combining MBA and budget-based regulation.

Building Raspberry PI Supercomputers
Federico discusses what is required to integrate clusters of ARM SBCs, with a focus on Raspberry PI units due to their popularity, the software integration necessary to make them practical, what plumbing is necessary to easily configure nodes, and how to issue commands for cluster management. From the initial spotlight on cluster operations we transition to practical use, and look at how parallel computing is utilized to solve numerical problems and how to code and run numerical workloads using the MPI interface. A survey of some common approaches to CPU parallelism with code and live running examples rounds up the session.

This is a live tutorial with a running cluster (or two!), and is meant to be an introduction for those new to Linux clustering.

OWASP Top-10 - quickstart your security awareness
Not everyone is a security expert. Of course, not everyone needs to be a security expert, but in today’s world of rapid development and deployment, developers cannot afford to ignore security considerations completely, and “just leave it up to the security team to review”.

In this talk, I’ll present the OWASP Top-10 project, an (incomplete) list of the top security vulnerabilities (web) developers face. I will then talk about how developer-awareness from the ground up is a key to shifting left the way we think about security, which is the first step in creating better-secured applications.

Saving money by reducing power consumption
Monitoring and reducing the energy consumption of servers in data centers is critical. Reducing the power drawn by 10,000 datacenter servers by 10 watts (10 joules/second) would result in energy savings that could power approximately 100 US households with a corresponding financial saving of $100,000/year. The factors that affect a server's energy use arise from the complex interactions between the application workload, software stack, and the hardware characteristics and configuration of the node itself. This work sheds light on the task of tuning hardware parameters to control the time and energy required for IO sensitive, system-centric workloads typical of cloud services. In a memcached server, hardware tuning using both Linux and a library OS and record dramatic savings of 440 joules 42%) on Linux and 635 joules 60% on a library OS while maintaining an 99% tail latency under 500 microsecond. We reveal the significant impact that static tuning can have and the influence of operating systems software on the performance of the aforementioned applications.

Reshaping (input) Space to Fuzz the Cloud's Virtualization Layer
The market for public cloud platforms is valued in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Hypervisors form the backbone of the cloud and are, therefore, security-critical applications which are attractive targets for attackers. Fuzzing is a widely-adopted technique for automated software testing based on randomly-provided inputs. As testament to their success, fuzzers have found thousands of bugs in the Linux kernel.  Unfortunately, it is difficult to apply simple fuzzing techniques to the virtualization-layer, as hypervisors expose a massive input space which includes the entirety of the VM's memory. In this talk, I will present my research on making cloud virtual devices amenable to fuzzing. I will explain how we implemented fuzzing for the popular open-source QEMU hypervisor, where it has already led to dozens of bugs reports.

Look ma, no pause!
The pause container is a quinnessential hack for Kubernetes pods. A pause container is the first container in a pod, pauses until it is terminated, and is used to hold Linux namespaces open for the lifespan of the pod. Even though the pause container is as minimal as possible, it still has overhead, and we can do better.
CRI-O now has the option to only run a pause container when absolutely necessary. Join Peter Hunt for a deep dive into the implementation details of dropping the pause container, as well as a performance comparison and discussion of other benefits. Attendees will participate in a conversation about the removal of this hack from Kubernetes.

Final Stop Nispor
To simplify network configuration of Linux hosts, Nmstate provides a declarative method to manage network interfaces, routes and DNS configuration. By also reporting the current network state in the same format used for configuration, the configuration of one host can easily be transferred to another. Additionally, it allows to check the compliance of a host with the intended configuration. For this, it is important to gather the actual runtime/kernel networking configuration instead of the on-disk configuration that might not be applied properly.

On our journey to query the interface runtime status with Nmstate,
NetworkManager and Nispor we faced multiple problems. From on-disk profiles to sysfs to netlink. How is Nispor trying to solve this and how can other projects benefit from this solution using varlink?

Blockchain enabled decentralized storage cluster
Is the best way of not getting robbed, putting your valuables in a place where everyone can see?

In the era , where costs and privacy of large-scale storage service providers are questionable, i intent to provide  insight on a system with no central control and how security and other operations can still be achieved.

"A Distributed storage system which allow users to club their storage disks in a network to provide secured storage .In this talk, you will see how (new DHT) blockchain is used to enhance the functionality. In a network of 5 nodes , if a user decides to upload a document , the document gets encrypted and sharded across the nearby nodes (based on geo-location) , during retrieval process , the encrypted files across the network gets verified and downloaded to the users node and then it is constructed together as one file.This infrastructure makes use of kademlia algorithm where the data after getting split will be put across the nodes by taking location as an argument, thus storing the data to nearby nodes and making retrieval process easy.The verification method to check whether data still exists in the chain is done by a request/response feature which will help in checking whether nodes contain the data or not. If the node does not contain the data, data regeneration will be initiated."

Unikernel
Unikernels are small, lightweight, single address space operating systems with the kernel included as a library within the application. Because unikernels run a single application, there is no sharing or competition for resources among different applications, improving performance and security. Unikernels have thus far seen limited production deployment. This project aims to turn the Linux kernel into a unikernel with the following characteristics: 1) easily compiled for any application, 2) uses battle-tested, production Linux and glibc code, 3) allows the entire upstream Linux developer community to maintain and develop the code, and 4) provides applications normally running vanilla Linux to benefit from unikernel performance and security advantages. The paper Unikernels: The Next Stage of Linux’s Dominance was presented at HotOS XVII, The 17th Workshop on Hot Topics in Operating Systems, 2019.

How I Learned to Share my Hardware (with ESI)
The Elastic Secure Infrastructure (ESI) project was started by the Mass Open Cloud (MOC) in order to "create a set of services/systems to permit multiple tenants to flexibly allocate bare-metal machines from a pool of available hardware, create networks, attach bare-metal nodes and networks, and to optionally provision an operating system on those systems through the use of an associated provisioning service". As part of this project, ESI has contributed upstream development efforts in Ironic to custom development of a leasing service and has created a CLI to create a bridge in between OpenStack and additional functionality needed by ESI. On this presentation, we will discuss both the challenges and the successes behind these efforts. We will also demonstrate how we're putting all this work together into a flexible hardware sharing architecture - designed specifically for the MOC, but easily adaptable for other needs as well!

Automating the Management of Kubernetes Apps
Ansible fits naturally into any Kubernetes environment. Both are very active and widely used open source projects with vibrant communities that help make hard things easier.

This talk will demonstrate how Ansible along with its built-in templating and k8s module can be used instead of static YAML definitions that are manually applied using kubectl for rapid, repeatable and consistent multi-cluster deployments.

Further, Ansible makes it easier to deploy and manage the complete lifecycle of complex Kubernetes applications. Traditionally, Operators have been written in Go and require expertise with the internals of Kubernetes. Ansible is also a first class citizen of the Operator SDK that provides an alternative to using Go with a lower barrier to entry. It frees up application engineers, maximizes time to automate and orchestrate your applications, and doing it across new & existing platforms with one simple language.

Here we discuss and demonstrate how they can work together.

In this talk, we will review how to enable developers to connect their applications with operator-backed services, such as databases, without having to perform manual intervention (secrets, configmaps, etc.). It thereby provides an intuitive approach for the developers to connect their application to an operator backed service. In a nutshell, improved developer experience.

Comedy with DeAnne Smith
Please join us to hear the comedic stylings of DeAnne Smith! Here is a bit about them.

Who's DeAnne Smith? Well, not only are they the humble person writing this bio, they're an international comedy sensation. Their video “Straight Men Step Up Your Game” has been viewed over 47 million times, and if they look familiar to you, it's probably because your high school friend posted it in their Facebook feed. DeAnne's critically-acclaimed Netflix special, Gentleman Elf, is available right this minute as part of the groundbreaking Comedians of the World series. They've performed everywhere from Iceland to New Zealand (oh my gosh, remember travel?) and is a regular at both the Melbourne International Comedy Festival and Montreal's prestigious, invite-only Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. You may have seen them on NBC, CBS, HBO, or CBC (if you watch Canadian television). Time Out Melbourne says DeAnne "blends smart and silly subjects with expert conviction" and the UK Telegraph says they're "Very funny. Effortless charm lets them get away with murder." They've never actually murdered anyone.

The magic formula for high-performing teams
In 2015, Google published the results of an internal study to determine what factors were the best predictors of an employee’s success. Their thesis was that the study would uncover what individual traits and past accomplishments were predictors of future performance, ultimately leading to a "magical algorithm" for hiring the right people. They learned that the highest performing teams had a number of common traits, but the most impactful one was an environment of psychological safety. Many want this environment but are left wondering how you grow a team culture that encourages experiments to flourish and treats failures as an opportunity for continuous learning.

In this session, we’ll discuss helping groups overcome communication and cultural anti-patterns that destroy psychological safety. You'll leave this presentation with actionable strategies to create a trust-filled environment that fosters employee well-being, creativity, and innovation.

Using containers and VMs on free public CIs
At first glance, free public CIs seem insufficient for testing many open source projects. They provide only a single virtual machine with no choice of Linux distro, and no container or virtual infrastructure.

However, many projects are publishing as containers, or even kubernetes operators. Many have conventional installers that must be tested across numerous Linux distros. Some need SELinux or other CI-disabled kernel features.

This talk will explain how our project overcame all these limitations: container infrastructure and full virtual machines running on top of free public CIs, and alternative solutions that also work. The solutions will consist of a comparison of CI-compatible open source container infrastructures and hypervisors, CI design patterns for them, and other tips & tricks for integrating them.

I See Metrics: Anomaly Detection on OpenShift
Monitoring with Prometheus is becoming a common pattern for cloud native applications. But knowing what metrics to record and how to find relevance is a challenging task. How can AI-based solutions help us automate the process of identifying and alerting when metrics behave differently and also augment human introspection?
In this workshop you will learn how to interact with Prometheus metrics and train a machine learning model to perform time series forecasting for detecting potential anomalies. We will walk you through the process of deploying and operating all the tools required to develop your own anomaly detection framework. You will walk away from this workshop knowing how to:
1. Setup a sample web application to generate metrics
2. Configure Prometheus to collect the metrics and Grafana to visualize the metrics
3. Use Python to transform metrics into a suitable format
4. Train a machine learning model to perform time series forecasting

Open Source Agile: How CPE Serves the Community
In 2001, the Agile Manifesto, a collection of simple principles for software development, was published. It helped shape how development teams work. Meanwhile, open source has its own set of principles that promote and build community, transparency, and collaboration, and meritocracy. On paper these two sets of principles match closely. But in practice, using Agile in an open source project may make community members wary, especially volunteers.

This is extra challenging for CentOS and Fedora, since Red Hat sponsors those projects and contributes in order to meet business goals. The Community Platform Engineering team has a foot in both the business and open source camps to support both CentOS and Fedora. How can we better interact with global volunteers and Red Hat, increase confidence in delivering on important goals, and do it openly and transparently? How do we embrace and not isolate? How do we ensure that we add value? How do we actually function? Join my session to find out!

Metadata strategy for beautiful nerds
Good metadata makes good information easy to find, but 35% of B2B content is never used. Folks who engage with your content deserve care and respect—and metadata empowers them to find what they need. Embrace your inner beautiful nerd and learn methods for connecting people with authoritative, trustworthy, and meaningful knowledge.
You’ll learn how to:
- Audit and analyze your content and tools without spending the rest of your life in a spreadsheet.
- Build metadata and search systems that support your organization’s purpose and expertise.
- Use the GitLab Remote Manifesto to build a knowledge ecosystem that works for people.
- Improve your software by incorporating the ideas (and workarounds) of passionate amateurs.
- Bridge developers and users by becoming a technologist, bug hunter, and expert on your own content collection.
- Develop software integrations that count, and focus people’s passion for ML/AI to build practical features.
- Conquer the world. Or at least content bloat.

Can Database play a whisper game?
From smartphones, IoTs for homes and smart cities, we generate enormous amounts of data while constantly accessing services on the internet. These cloud-enabled services often consider connected devices as edges and need them to be in sync. Therefore, we need ways to support distributed systems that are highly fault-tolerant and available while abiding limited connectivity and resources.

We introduce a distributed database that is adaptable to systems with low network bandwidth and node stability. By relaxing the consistency requirement of a database we support systems that look for eventual consistency. In this session, you will learn the basics of distributed systems, its design concerning the CAP theory, and a brave usage of recent reconciliation protocols that revolutionizes the fundamentals of traditional databases. With this work, we hope to inspire and enable similar approaches that effectively decentralize workloads and aggregate the results.

AI: Beyond Machine Learning
The past decade or so has seen such rapid advances in supervised deep learning and neural networks that those areas, and machine learning more generally, have become almost synonymous with AI especially in popular media. However, there are other broad areas of research that have fed into AI historically and continue to be important today.

In this talk, Red Hat’s Gordon Haff will place machine learning within this set of broader science and engineering specialties that include cognitive psychology, control theory, linguistics, and human factors. The goal is to provide attendees with a broader context for both learning and applying cross-disciplinary fields of study to their AI-related work.

User Onboarding – Get the User on Board!
User onboarding is guiding users to use your product and find value in it. Users understand how to use your product to meet their goals. You may have the best product, but if the users cannot figure out how to get started, they will never use your product. This is where User Onboarding helps!
The session covers:
• What is user onboarding
• User onboarding strategies
• Onboarding based on user personas and journeys
• User onboarding artifacts:
◦ In the app:
• Welcome messages
• Guided product tours
• Task lists & progress bars
• Tooltips, in-app messaging
◦ External:
▪ Marketing emails
▪ Product release emails
▪ Help topics
• Examples of companies that use good onboarding to guide their users
• Examples of onboarding tools to get started

Improvements in OpenShift Python s2i
OpenShift provides a framework to easily deploy applications into a cluster from within a Git repo - Source-To-Image (s2i). Let's have a look at what we've learnt and how we improved the installation process of Python applications during OpenShift s2i builds. We will discuss how we improved the developer's experience, helped developers with tracking issues during cluster builds, reduced the resulting container image size, and how we were still able to automatically aggregate important information from build logs in a structured form. Besides all of this, users can use any dependency management tool from pip, pip-tools, Pipenv or Poetry. Last but not least, we will show good practices to keep your Python project in a good shape and ready to be deployed to an OpenShift cluster.

Running GPU workloads on OpenShift
Using general available packages (in the form of container images) from an official source or a certified provider comes with a big caveat in relation to performance-sensitive workloads.
These packages may provide ABI compatibility, but they are not optimized for our specialized hardware (like GPUs or high-performance NICs), nor our CPU chip architecture. The best way to address this is to compile your packages (build your images) on your own deployment.
OpenShift provides a way to seamlessly build images based on defined events called BUILDS. A build is the process of transforming input parameters into a resulting object. Most often, the process is used to transform input parameters or source code into a runnable image. A BuildConfig object is the definition of the entire build process.
The missing part to building hardware-specific images is to orchestrate the build process over the different available resources. In this presentation, attendees will learn about the Node Feature Disco

The first step we will cover is the initial setting up of a design GitHub repository and starting to add design artifacts to it. Next we will talk about applying open source methods to the research phase. We will talk about using open communication channels like mailing lists and Reddit to recruit research participants and conduct research activities like surveys.

In this talk, I will present how QE engineers, Developer or Anyone who is interested in filling CVE bugs can work proactively with InfoSec or ProdSec team to find some security vulnerabilities in different features of the web in functionality testing.
The agenda will be like:
* Goals of offensive bug hunting and what are some approaches to agressive bug hunting i.e burpsuite, ZAP etc
* Some common vulnerabilities to check for in your project i.e OWASP Top 10
* Attacks in Action ( Demonstration of video POC's ):
- Application-level Dos ( Denial of Service )
- Host Header Injection ( redirection, cache poisoning & password reset poisoning )
- URL/Open Redirection and etc.

Kubernetes styled CI/CD tool
In the container world, the emphasis is on the easy build and ship. CI/CD for the container tools should also work on a similar principle of easy build and deploy. Many of the CI/CD tools present are designed before the existence of cloud-native paradigms which makes it difficult to run in containerized environments like Kubernetes. OpenShift Pipelines builds upon the Tekton project to enable Kubernetes-style delivery pipelines that remove the need to rely on central teams to maintain and manage a CI server and can fully control and own the complete lifecycle of their microservices. Utilizing the power of Openshift Pipelines and Tekton trigger we have designed and implement our own Thoth-CI to facilitate the projects which have multi-namespace microservice architecture.
This talk is about how our ci/cd tool is providing ease to the developer to work on source code and not worry about deploying the project to containerized environments and its configuration.

Automating Load Balancing via Predictive Analysis
Just imagine, wouldn't it be great if schedulers could predict application shut downs and detect traffic congestion in advance while reacting appropriately? We’ll explain how to improve performance, reduce costs, and increase reliability in order to provide more intelligent workload balancing. 

The solution is Predictive Analysis which allows us to “predict” the future from historical events. We will discuss how predictive analysis can improve overall system performance while reducing costs and improve the reliability of Distributed Systems and Hybrid Cloud based environments.

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of cutting edge technologies for solving complex problems that are fast becoming the next generation of technological advances.

When I'm Remote, You're Remote
In a world where the talent is everywhere, we need to be prepared to collaborate effectively with our co-workers wherever they may be. To be successful, we can’t simply open up remote seats on our teams and hope for the best; we need to become remote-first in everything we do from hiring and infrastructure choices to communication and collaboration. The way we interact with our co-workers needs to fundamentally change. This has become even more apparent across the globe in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will be going over some of the practices I’ve adapted and experimented with that help me work better as an individual and with a remote team. All of this will be presented with some historical context on the subject and how misunderstandings of the modern office can make or break your chances of cultivating a strong remote-first environment.

Journeymapping: Creating a cohesive project vision
How to use an end-to-end flow to guide a project and the team to a shared vision.

In an open source project there will often be many different opinions on what problems the project should solve, where the users (who are often also the contributors) want to focus their time, and how to implement the solutions. Journeymapping can help identify the most important places to focus.

Using a successful open-source project we’ll demonstrate how the process works and how we were able to get all stakeholders to agree to a project plan and issues that focused on the end user. From interviews with stakeholders and subject matter experts, through the in-person workshop that went off the rails 5 minutes before we started, to the final assembly of the steps and feedback to the team, we’ll explain the journey and how you can implement it on your project.

Code to production - Kubernetes with Tekton and Gi
Git has emerged as the unifying language of DevOps. By being able to leverage the inherent capabilities of Git, developers and operations teams can work together to build complex systems as their work is expressed and versioned in a declarative manner. Whenever changes are introduced, actions, such as triggering building and deploying, can be orchestrated to apply the modifications. The same concept can apply to Kubernetes manifests, such as Services and Deployments. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could push commits to your code and have Tekton Pipelines and Argo CD get these automatically deployed on your different environments? Enter GitOps.

In this session, attendees will be introduced to:
- The basic concepts of GitOps and how it can be applied in practice using a tool called ArgoCD
- Deploying your applications to multiple environments and tuning them for the target environments
- Leveraging Tekton pipelines to build and test your code on Kubernetes

Data Science with Red Hat Insights
Red Hat Insights is a predictive analysis tool for RHEL environments. It collects system configuration and logging data to find vulnerabilities using predefined rules. From a data science perspective, we are interested in the question of how we can automate rule development and system data analysis. In particular, I will talk about two projects: SAP data analysis and drift baseline suggestions. In the first project, we investigate data collected from users running SAP workloads. We leverage open source Business Intelligence dashboard, Superset, to visualize the relationship between user’s physical systems and SAP workloads running on them.
In the second project, we look at all the systems in a user’s Insights account and recommend a standard system or a baseline. We use unsupervised machine learning methods to find central systems based on their hardware and software configurations. These baselines can then be used to troubleshoot operational issues and standardize configurations across systems.
This talk will introduce the Insights data from an AI/ML perspective. You will learn about manipulating system data and dealing with common challenges faced in the process.

Aligning Open Source Community and Business Goals
As open source continues to eat the software world, many organizations want to take advantage of the innovation and flexibility afforded by open source for their own business practices. But, as many businesses learned, just throwing developers into an open source project and hoping for the best wasn’t good enough. Organizations must proactively establish, maintain, and ultimately nurture communities around their open source projects and ensure those communities are still aligned with the business' goals. A successful method Red Hat's Open Source Program Office (OSPO) uses to accomplish this is an audit for communities, which identify the key areas where open source communities need assistance, and also help OSPO manage its time and resources more effectively by assigning the right people to do the most impactful and business-positive tasks. In this presentation, Brian Proffitt will review the audit process, its results to date, and how business and community goals maintained alignment.

My Journey Upstream with tlog Testing
Want to get involved in Open Source but don't know where to start?

Try writing tests!

A lot of projects already have tests upstream with the source code.

As a Quality Engineer working on RHEL, I rarely worked on upstream projects. Most of my tests were written in private Downstream repos. For tlog, I wanted to change that.

To contribute tests upstream I had to learn a different workflow. This presentation will show my journey contributing tests upstream to the tlog project.

Who will benefit from this presentation?
* Anyone writing tests Downstream that wants to move upstream
* Anyone looking to start contributing upstream (with tests!)

What will be covered in this presentation?
* Upstream vs Downstream testing
* A basic upstream workflow
* My experience contributing tests upstream
* Lessons learned

Take-aways from this presentation?
* A better understanding of the upstream contribution process
* A new found desire to start contributing tests upstream
