B102673 - Creating a more open, collaborative, and inclusive culture at work We’ve all wished that we could change aspects of our organization’s culture. We look around and see how our team’s effectiveness is hampered by organizational barriers, silos, or even fiefdoms. Information moves slowly and minimally between teams, and that creates unintended consequences and complexity for everyone. We want other teams to communicate more openly and effectively with ours, and they seem to want the same from us. We wish that someone would do something to fix these cultural challenges. Yet true change begins with each and every one of us. When individuals work together and share information, teams become more effective and collaborative. Whether you have a success story to share, a problem you’d like tips for solving, or both, this session is for you. Bring your ideas and topic suggestions, because in this birds-of-a-feather discussion, participants will suggest and vote on the topics for discussion. 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Denise Dumas

B103109 - How to survive the Internet of Things: Security After years of warnings about poor Internet of Things (IoT) device security, devices such as security cameras and home routers were part of recent major attacks on key internet infrastructure. In this session, we’ll use a set of IP security cameras to explore general IoT security issues around IoT, including software, configuration, and deployment. We’ll attempt to secure these cameras, then look at system-level approaches for protecting them from the internet and vice versa while continuing to use them for their original purpose. We’ll conclude with recommendations for developing secure systems that include unsecure components. 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Russ Doty
B103901 - Perfect Security: A dangerous myth? System security for open source System security is more than providing security application. It is about understanding security from a system point of view. System security architecture and engineering is different from application or feature security and requires different skills and a different mindset. In this session, system-level security experts and those interested in becoming experts can come together and share knowledge. Possible discussion topics include: What is system security? What do I need to do differently? How does open source affect system security? Why is perfect security impossible? What is the affect of certification at the system level? 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Mike Bursell
B103938 - The art of blameless retrospectives Retrospectives are not just about making you feel bad for missing your commitments, pointing fingers at your colleagues, and hearing your more talkative team members go on and on. They are supposed to help your team learn how to nimbly respond to failure and empower you to change the things that are not working for you. However, older management styles have helped us learn and perfect the arts of finger-pointing, competition, and siloism as methods of achieving success in the workplace. This workshop is for anyone who participates in retrospectives, doesn’t always feel they are useful, and wants to learn a better way to accomplish the intended goal. We will explore several different ways to help address areas such as: Understanding and approaching low team morale Setting up the team to support productive behavior Understand different perspectives of teams, especially when work crosses divisions, time zones and cultures Tactics for dealing with unfriendly behavior Improving team interactions in a remote environment 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Jennifer Krieger
B103948 - DirtyCow: A game changer? Cowabunga! We all know that you can never be fully secure and eliminate risks. DirtyCow was unique in many ways. How did your organization react? Come share your experiences of staying secure in a post-DirtyCow world. In this session with the Red Hat Product Security team, we'll informally discuss the DirtyCow vulnerability and how it affected us, including: What changed for you as a result? How did your organization react? What are your future expectations? Are there any special pressures for your organization from these high-profile issues? 45 Minutes Birds of a feather christopher robinson

B104230 - Containers and the enterprise—how do we accelerate adoption? There’s nothing stopping many of the biggest software companies from turning to containers to deliver their software, but the industry is struggling with organic enterprise adoption. Right now, containers are seen as too-in-the-weeds tech-y, and enterprises don’t always understand the benefits. However, container technology holds a solution to the problems many organizations struggle with when it comes to software delivery. In this session, we'll examine the great potential that container technology holds for enterprises providing new ways to process inefficiencies, increase collaboration, reduce vendor lock-in, and more. We'll also discuss how container technology needs to integrate with existing systems, such as enterprise security and identity access management (IAM), monitoring and alerting, and how it can significantly increase enterprise deployment cycles through deployment pipeline automation and integration. 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Miska Kaipiainen
B104382 - Distributed CI: A collaborative continuous integration platform Testing a single piece of software is a proven practice - there's an extended ecosystem to ensure that a piece of software does what it's supposed to do in its sandbox. Testing a set of software components - a distribution - that are supposed to work together, and can be configured in a myriad of different ways, is something else. What every team wants when hitting their project's release button is a stable release that's been tested for all possible permutations and that doesn't break their setup. Enter: Distributed Continuous Integration (DCI). The more users, partners, and customers there are, the more configurations are tested, and the stronger the product stability gets. In this session, you'll learn about the elements of DCI, and how it's been used to provide feedback for a project as complex as OpenStack. We'll also look at how partners and customers are using DCI for completely different architectures and deployment use cases. 45 Minutes Birds of a feather Gaël Rehault

L100472 - Hands on HACEP: Highly available and horizontally scalable complex event processing Recognizing important patterns in data, as they occur in real time, is critical. With complex event processing (CEP), organizations can recognize, understand, and react to business events faster by processing large volumes of inbound data. This includes data from social networks, remote sensor readings, online-gaming player events, credit card transactions, and location data from delivery vehicles. Critical CEP workloads require solutions that tolerate the failure of one or more processing nodes, while easily scaling to handle growing data volumes. They must process a high volume, velocity, and variety of inbound data, infer the context, and take appropriate action in real time while adhering to stringent availability and scalability service level agreements. In this lab, you'll implement a simple rule-based, event-based application on a cluster of distributed nodes. You'll see your events and rules scale up and down thanks to HACEP, which is the combination of Red Hat JBoss BRMS superpowered with Red Hat JBoss Data Grid. 2 Hour Instructor-led lab Ugo Landini
