Nashville, Tennessee, United States


Baruch Sadogursky (@jbaruch) did Java before it had generics, DevOps before there was Docker, and DevRel before it had a name. He started DevRel at JFrog when it was ten people and took it all the way to a successful $6B IPO by helping engineers solve problems. Now Baruch keeps helping engineers solve problems but also helps companies help engineers solve problems. He is a co-author of the "Liquid Software" and "DevOps Tools for Java Developers" books, serves on multiple conference program committees, and regularly speaks at numerous most prestigious industry conferences, including Kubecon, JavaOne (RIP), Devoxx, QCon, DevRelCon, DevOpsDays (all over), DevOops (not a typo) and others. After a tenure of eleven years in JFrog DevRel, Baruch is the Principal Developer Productivity Engineering Advocate at Gradle.

Барух Садогурский (@jbaruch) писал на Джаве до того, как в ней появились дженерики, рассказывал про ДевОпс до того, как появился Докер, и занимался ДевРелом до того, как его стали так называть. Барух основал DevRel в JFrog когда там было 10 человек, и помог компании дойти до IPO с оценкой в $6B помогая инженерам лучше делать их работу. Теперь Барух продолжает помогать иженерам, а так же помогает компаниям помогать инженерам. Он соавтор книг "Liquid Software" и "DevOps Tools for Java Developers", является членом ПК нескольких престижных конференций и выступает регулярно на таких конференциях как Kubecon, JavaOne (мир праху его), Devoxx, QCon, DevRelCon, DevOpsDays (по всему миру), DevOops (не опечатка) и так далее.

[Workshop] Maximize Developer Productivity with Developer Productivity Engineering en

In this workshop by Gradle, we will discuss “Developer Productivity Engineering” (DPE).

If you are not familiar with DPE, it is a new software development discipline that uses data analytics and acceleration technologies to speed up critical software development processes—from builds to testing to CI—and make them more efficient.

In this hands-on training with labs, we will describe DPE processes and best practices in action—using examples from Java projects that rely on Maven or Gradle build tools.

At a high level, you will learn how to:

Leverage build and test acceleration technologies like build caching and distributed testing to instantly speed up feedback cycles as much as 90%. Cut debugging and troubleshooting time in half using data analytics to rapidly identify incident root causes and better manage avoidable failures like flaky tests. Continuously improve performance and guard against regressions through metrics, KPI, and trend observability.

More specifically, this training will cover how to:

* Accelerate debugging and root cause analysis leveraging build scans.
*Achieve significant reductions in local and remote build times using build caches.
* Avoid performance regressions and continuously improve toolchain reliability with performance management analytics
* Detect, prioritize, and eliminate the most damaging flaky tests utilizing a test dashboard.
* Integrate with Git/Jenkins

Pursuing DPE excellence will be a transformative and highly satisfying developer experience.

Shifting Left, Shifting Blame: How DPE Levels the DevOps Playing Field en

Ah, developers, the golden children of IT! They're the ones who bring the code to life and make the magic happen. But sometimes, they dodge responsibilities, whether it's security vulnerabilities, usability issues, or integration challenges. "That's for Ops to handle closer to production," they say, crossing these concerns off their "definition of done" list. And when things go wrong? Ops is left holding the bag, cleaning up messes they didn't make.

Enter Developer Productivity Engineering (DPE), the framework that encourages developers to take ownership from the start. DPE fosters faster feedback, ensuring that developers address various issues—security, usability, and even third-party integrations—early on. It's not just about writing code; it's about writing accountable code.

You might be thinking, "Isn't that what DevOps is for?" Absolutely, but DPE takes it a step further. It's like DevOps on steroids, making sure everyone is not just collaborating but also accountable for their part.

And here's the best part: developers actually want this. They take pride in code that compiles and passes unit tests. What they've lacked is a way to take ownership of quality issues that go beyond basic functionality. DPE gives them the tools and the mindset to do just that.

So, if you're tired of the blame game where Ops gets all the flak and developers seem untouchable, come discover how DPE can change the dynamics. It's a win-win for everyone, leveling the playing field and making sure everyone is accountable for delivering quality.

Coding Fast and Slow: Applying Kahneman's Insights to Improve Development Practices and Efficiency en

Embark on an exciting journey into the intersection of psychology, software development, and Developer Productivity Engineering (DPE) as we explore how Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman's groundbreaking work on the psychology of judgment and decision-making can optimize your development practices while conserving cognitive resources. Discover the impact of System 1 and System 2 thinking on the software development process, and learn to strike the perfect balance between "fast" intuitive thinking and "slow" deliberative reasoning.
We'll delve into practical DPE strategies for reducing mental fatigue and minimizing context switches, focusing on techniques like build system performance optimization, test parallelization, AI-powered test selection, and developer productivity observability. By leveraging these best practices, you'll enhance your and your team's productivity and maintain focus on high-value tasks.
Whether you're an experienced developer seeking to boost your performance or a curious newcomer eager to learn about the connections between the human mind, software development, and DPE, this talk is for you. Join us for an exhilarating adventure into the fast and slow worlds of coding, and uncover new ways to maximize your cognitive resources.

DevOps Reframed: Embracing the Path to Developer Productivity Engineering en

Building on the success of DevOps practices, which already employ the Theory of Constraints to tackle bottlenecks, Developer Productivity Engineering (DPE) emerges as the next natural progression. DPE takes a step further by optimizing workflows, automating tasks, and providing real-time feedback to developers, keeping software delivery nimble and efficient.

In this engaging talk, we'll explore how DPE enhances the DevOps framework, streamlining the development process throughout the software delivery lifecycle. See why mastering DPE is essential for all engineers, including Platform and Site Reliability Engineers, as it aligns with core principles like reducing toil, promoting automation, and implementing observability, all while keeping bottlenecks at bay.

With a touch of wit and insight, learn practical tips to harness DPE's power and elevate your software development game. Join us as we reframe the DevOps landscape, revealing the importance of DPE as the next step in our software development evolution, ensuring continued success and growth by effectively managing constraints and bottlenecks.

DevOps for Java Developers (or maybe against them?!) en

"DevOps" is the operations people’s crafty plan to make Java developers do other people's work, but we are smart enough to see right through this naive rebranding trick!

Baruch suggests you think about it: we, the Java developers, have written all the code. It passes all the tests; it obviously works and works well (Are we a little proud? We are!); so we are DONE.

Now, out of the blue, a bunch of "thought leaders" (all with an operations background, mind you!) are trying to tell us that we have to learn YAML, Docker, Kubernetes, and Terraform to deploy our software because suddenly it is our concern?!

In this talk, we'll discuss why Java developers do or don’t need DevOps. We'll consider arguments made by DevOps visionaries and see whether they hold water. Hopefully, by the end of the talk, we'll understand whether DevOps really helps Java developers to deploy better code to production more often or if it is just another scam made up by marketing and evangelists.

This is a fun and provocative talk. I am starting by claiming that developers have no incentives to do any DevOps and will work my way to explain why; although there is some truth in that, it doesn't matter. The business must commit to DevOps, and once the business is committed, everyone has to be on board.

DevOps для разработчиков (или против них?!) en ru

DevOps — это заговор сисадминов, чтобы заставить разработчиков делать чужую работу, но мы слишком умны, чтобы попасться на эту элементарную уловку ребрендингом! Посудите сами: мы написали код, он проходит тесты. Он, очевидно, работает и работает хорошо (Мы гордимся собой? Да!). И тут мы закончили.

Но приходят эти «визионеры» (все из operations, прошу заметить!) и рассказывают нам, что теперь надо учить YAML, Docker, Kubernetes и Terraform, потому что внезапно это наша головная боль?!

В этом докладе мы поговорим о том, зачем разработчикам нужен или не нужен DevOps. Мы рассмотрим аргументы, которые приводят идеологи DevOps, и решим, состоятельны они или нет. К концу доклада, будем надеяться, нам станет понятно, действительно ли это способ, который поможет нам (разработчикам) поставлять лучший код в прод чаще, или это, как всегда, разводка маркетологов и евангелистов.

Устраиваем DevOps без полномочий: Даже "ДевОпс инженер" может помочь en ru

Казалось бы, доклад про устроение ДевОпса должен быть про настройку Дженкинса, но нет!

Этот доклад для тех, кто понимает, что ДевОпс это история про культуру, коллаборацию и общение, но не очень представляет как будучи скромным исполнителем или тимлидом, повлиять на целый энтерпрайз или галеру, и свдинуть организацию в соторну ДевОпса.
Барух расскажет какими методами можно воспользоваться для влияния на stake–holder-ов, что кому говорить, как мотивировать, и как работать с возражениями.
Пожалуй, за исключением парапсихологических практик и гипноза (которые не стоит раскрывать неокрепшим умам), на этом доладе будет обозрены все способы влиять, не имея полномочий на благо наступления повсеместного ДевОпса в индустрии.
