Current sessions

Exhilarating Journey of our Transformation into Digital Edge

Microservices, Containerization, Orchestration, DevOps and CI/CD - none of that is new anymore! Many organizations still face challenges in adapting them. Why is that so? Lack of Technical Skills, Fear of failure, hard to get out of Comfort Zone Or lack of understanding the potential value? We have been through similar challenges in last few years. Let’s explore painful yet rewarding; incremental Journey of our Transformation and along the way some real time scenarios that you might feel relevant today! This session will also focus on critical elements of Digital Transformation, their Key Values and approaches to driving mass behavior to accomplish them. Technical Focus will be Microservices, Docker, Kubernetes and Enhanced DevOps Practices for Simplifying Docker/Kubernetes CI/CD Pipelines to manage large nos. of deployments.

30 to 90 Minutes Session.

Target Audience All.


Conquer the Monolith Monster!



Let’s breakdown that ugly Monolithic Mountain into fine grained Domain Driven Microservices with Containerization, Orchestration, DevOps and CI/CD. We will explore this hands on journey to implement it all from scratch on your local machine!

Look at the Monolith Impacts, Risks and Limitations

Break it down into Domain Driven Microservices (Spring Boot and Kafka)

Service Registry and Routing

Config Server backed by Git

Auto-generate Service REST API Documentation

Monitoring Service Stats and Resources

Log Aggregation, Visualization and Tracing

Containerizing Microservices (Docker, CRI-O)

Orchestrating Containers (Kubernetes)

DevOps CI/CD (Jenkins, Bamboo)

30 to 90 Mins. Session. Could be Hands on Workshop as well. Targetted Audience : All.

Evolving DevOps in the Age of Kubernetes!

Code is neither built nor ran today the way it used to be a few years ago! What really has changed and how did that impact the space of Continuous Integration and Delivery?

Although the purpose “boost Code Quality, Integrity and accelerate the Delivery of Code Changes to customers” has remained unchanged, how that is accomplished today has certainly changed!

Let’s look into a Traditional CI/CD Model that did the job once! And then jump back into the age of Kuberentes and Containers to see what are the new challenges and expectations from CI/CD & DevOps Practices.

Further, Let’s look at how the authorities of Development, Operations and Security worked in their own silos once! And then jump back into the edge of Kuberentes where these silos were challenged and the authorities are forced to come together as emerging DevSecOps Paradigm!

Please join me to explore the journey of evolution of DevOps and DevSecOps in our industry in last few years!

DevOps and CI/CD have been quite popular for over a decade. Also the Dev, Ops and Sec had been traditionally operating in own silos for years. However, lately the industry is forced to evolve this paradigm. Why? Let’s glance through the incremental evolution of Intense DevOps & DevSecOps practices!


Containers & Kubernetes - What's in it for me?

Many organizations today strives to adapt Containerization & Kubernetes. Much lesser really know though why they have to do it!

Increased Portability, Improved Scalability, Simple and Fast Deployment, Enhanced Productivity, Reduced Infrastructural Cost with Improved Resource Utilization - hard to disagree with the values the duo brings on table!

Although these potential benefits and pitfalls are discussed everywhere online, the Death by Flood of Information makes it harder to realize “What’s really in it for me?”.

Let’s make it easier! Let’s first understand the problem and then go step by step to see how it all fits together to solve those problems.

This session is meant to cover the fundamentals of Containers, Kubernetes and everything around it.

We will glance through the Container Runtimes, Orchestration Engines, Control Planes from Development, Operations and Security perspective but we will dig much deeper into Docker, CRI-O and Kubernetes.

We will also cover how an organization can approach the transformation into the world of Kubernetes & Containers across the horizons of Culture, Process & Technology .

Paradigm of Containers & Kubernetes is getting traction lately! Although a talk of town today, there have been a lot of confusion around the actual potential vs. pitfalls. Let’s get it all straighten up from ground zero to see why they aren’t avoidable today and what’s is in for me?
