Jenkins X Double Header: Security and Stability
Sep

5:30 PM17:30

Jenkins X Double Header: Security and Stability

  • Mosaic, 3rd floor, CIC Cambridge (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

FIRST PRESENTATION
Stability for Jenkins X with jx boot
Kurt Madel
CloudBees

ABSTRACT
Anyone that has been practicing CI/CD over the last year or more has certainly heard of Jenkins X. But many still haven’t actually used Jenkins X or don’t know exactly how Jenkins X is different from Jenkins or other CI/CD tools for that matter, or what is meant by Cloud Native CD. This talk will provide answers to all of the above and we will also take a look at the stability of Jenkins X, as one of the biggest challenges for those that have been using Jenkins X has been a constant stream of new features that have impacted the day to day stability of Jenkins X. This talk will provide a high-level overview of the differences between Jenkins X and Jenkins, explore what is meant by Cloud Native CD, and take a look at the new Jenkins X Boot feature that provides a consistent way to install, configure and upgrade Jenkins X. Finally, we will take a look at the CloudBees Jenkins X Distribution - a deliberately released version of Jenkins X that is similar to what Jenkins did with LTS releases - thoroughly tested and released on a specific cadence - bringing even more stability to Jenkins X and making it a Cloud Native CD platform that all organizations can depend on.

SPEAKER INFO
Kurt Madel is Director, Global Solution Architecture for CloudBees and works out of their office in Richmond, VA. He has over 20 years of software engineering and architecture experience, including DevOps in real world scenarios. Prior to joining CloudBees he was a software engineer at Capital One where he developed APIs for Apple Pay and helped lead their REST API initiative to include leading the development of a micro-service framework used by thousands of developers and streamlining of CI / CD processes. Based on his DevOps experience, Kurt provides a realistic, practical approach to help CloudBees customers realize continuous delivery.

SECOND PRESENTATION
Stranger Danger: Finding Security Vulnerabilities Before They Find You!
Simon Maple
Snyk

ABSTRACT
Open source modules are undoubtedly awesome. However, they also represent an undeniable and massive risk. You’re introducing someone else’s code into your system, often with little or no scrutiny. The wrong package can introduce severe vulnerabilities into your application, exposing your application and your user's data. This talk will use a sample application, Goof, which uses various vulnerable dependencies, which we will exploit as an attacker would. For each issue, we'll explain why it happened, show its impact, and – most importantly – see how to avoid or fix it in a CI/CD pipeline showing integrations with Jenkins X. We'll live hack exploits like the classic struts vulnerability that recently made it famous, along with several others.

SPEAKER INFO
Simon Maple is the Director of Developer Relations at Snyk, a Java Champion since 2014, JavaOne Rockstar speaker in 2014, Duke’s Choice award winner, Virtual JUG founder and organiser, and London Java Community co-leader. He is an experienced speaker, having presented at JavaOne, JavaZone, Jfokus, DevoxxUK, DevoxxFR, JavaLand, JMaghreb and many more including many JUG tours. His passion is around user groups and communities. When not traveling, Simon enjoys spending quality time with his family, cooking and eating great food.

Upskilling the 21st century Financial Professional : A open-mic discussion
At a conference in New York two weeks ago, a 40 something analyst from a large financial organization asked me if I could share tips on what tools to learn to be proficient with AI and machine learning
Financial professionals are challenged with new innovations and products on a daily basis. On the one hand, we had various technologies like AI and Machine Learning causing a tectonic shift in how business is done. On the other hand, we have fintech innovations in equities, payments, insurance, blockchain which are demanding financial professionals to look beyond traditional asset classes and financial products.

As we gear towards our next decade of our careers, what should financial professionals focus on? Questions include:
• Do you start (yet another) certification?
• Do you go to an online (cheap, low commitment, readily available) MOOC on edx, Coursera or Udacity?
• Do you pick up a new book? (Plenty available)
• Do you learn a new language? (Python/R/Julia/Startrek*)

These are questions every financial professional needs to deal with!

Join us August 13 at 5.30 pm to have an open discussion on the challenges faced by financial professional today in upskilling and keeping up with trends and innovation and how to build a career roadmap incorporating learning as a part of your journey. We will share 10 tips to help you strategize that would help you decide your roadmap without rushing towards the next rat-race!

* I made that one up..

This is a group for anyone interested in quantitative analysis, data science, big data and optimization. We take a practitioner's approach to education and plan to host workshops to discuss trends, best practices and case studies in analytics.
