Conference Agenda

Morning

  • 8:00am - 9:00am Breakfast

    Sponsored by Google

  • 9:00am - 9:50am OpenShift 3 Sneak Preview: DevOps on Kubernetes Paul Morie - Red Hat

    Session Sponsor: SCRA Launch

    OpenShift leverages several technologies, including Kubernetes, to provide an enterprise grade container ecosystem. Openshift's mission is to allow developers to focus on the code while system administrators manage diverse workloads with ease. In this talk, Paul will discuss the relationship between OpenShift and Kubernetes, how OpenShift and other teams within Red Hat contribute to Kubernetes, and demonstrate application development and deployment with OpenShift 3.

  • 10:00am - 10:50am Build an app, not a server Dave Johnson - Apigee

    Session Sponsor: Charleston County Economic Development

    That’s the promise of BaaS. With Apache Usergrid you don’t need a team of back-end developers to build a great mobile app. Apache Usergrid is an open source Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) that provides a complete mobile backend wrapped in a REST API including data storage, file uploads, user management, authentication and push notifications. Dave will cover features, benefits and limitations of Usergrid. You’ll see how to use the Usergrid portal to create and query JSON data, manage users and roles and work with the REST API in an interactive way. Then, Dave will walk through some code samples that show to implement Usergrid user signup and login with jQueryMobile and how to use the Ember-Data as a client for Usergrid. Mr. Johnson will wrap up with a short discussion of your options for running a Usergrid cluster.

  • 11:00am - 11:50am Enabling Distributed System Development with Kubernetes Brendan Burns - Google

    Session Sponsor: BoomTown

    As containers have taken over the packaging and deployment of software, there has naturally been a rise in cluster management systems to handle cluster level application deployment and maintenance.  Brendan will give an overview of the Google Kubernetes open source cluster management system and how it moves beyond simply scheduling work onto nodes and attempts to become an infrastructure and library for making the development of distributed systems reliable, scalable distributed systems. 

Afternoon

  • 12:00pm - 1:30pm Catered Lunch

    Sponsored by PhishLabs & Booz Allen Hamilton

  • 1:30pm - 2:30pm Open Source Cancer Genomics Jeff Hammerbacher - Cloudera

    Session Sponsor: Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation

    In his keynote, Jeff will discuss how the Hammer Lab at Mount Sinai in NYC is using open source tools like OCaml, React.js, and Apache Spark to work with cancer genomics data.

  • 2:40pm - 3:30pm Managing Containers at Scale with CoreOS and Kubernetes Kelsey Hightower - CoreOS

    Session Sponsor: CarePoint

    Linux containers provide the ability to reliably deploy thousands of application instances in seconds, but how do we manage it all? The answer is CoreOS and Kubernetes. Kelsey’s talk will help attendees wrap their minds around complex topics such as distributed configuration management, service discovery, and application scheduling at scale.

  • 3:40pm - 4:30pm Managing and Monitoring the Hybrid Datacenter Seth Vargo - HashiCorp

    Session Sponsor: BlueSentry

    In a hybrid world of containers, virtual machines, cloud instances, and bare metal, managing and monitoring infrastructure at scale becomes exponentially more complex. With service-oriented applications quickly becoming the norm, our datacenters are quickly become more diverse in technologies and purpose. But even with such divergent technologies, the goal still remains the same - safely deploy applications to your infrastructure. Seth’s talk will discuss the problems faced in the modern data center, and how a set of innovative open source tooling can be used to tame the rising complexity curve. Join Mr. Vargo on an adventure with Vagrant, Consul, and Terraform as he takes your datacenter from chaos to control.

  • 4:30pm - 5:00pm Data is the Foundation: Gathering and Storing the World's Benefits Data Don Taylor - Benefitfocus

    Session Sponsor: Bibliolabs

    With data at the core, decisions, predictions, analytics and behaviors can be modeled and used for advanced decision making during the benefits purchase and enrollment process. Our industry has entered the next realm of Business Intelligence. We have evolved past single database instances with complex cubes to a world being driven by new technologies that support the exponential amount of data being generated everyday. Don will also share some of the architectural decisions and technologies that are being used to build out the Benefitfocus Data Cloud.

  • 5:00pm - 8:00pm After-party

Terms and Conditions of Attendance & Participation

These are the terms (the "Agreement") governing your attendance at and participation in any {CODESHOW}SE event (the "Event" or the "{CODESHOW}SE Events").

By registering for the Event you agree to these terms, which form a binding legal contract between the Charleston Digital Corridor Foundation ("CDCF") and the registered attendee or participant ("you"). If you are registering on behalf of another individual, it is your responsibility to ensure the person attending is aware of these terms and accepts them. By completing the registration on behalf of another individual you are warranting that you have made the attendee or participant aware of these terms and that they have accepted these terms.

1 Attendee Requirements

1.1 Admittance. Your registration entitles you to admittance to the Event for which you have registered. Any and all other costs associated with your attendance (including without limitation travel and accommodation expenses) shall be borne solely by you, and CDCF shall have no liability for such costs.

1.2 Use of Likeness. By attending the Event you acknowledge and agree to grant CDCF the right at the Event to record, film, photograph, or capture your likeness in any media now available or hereafter developed and to distribute, broadcast, use, or otherwise globally to disseminate, in perpetuity, such media without any further approval from you or any payment to you. This grant to CDCF includes, but is not limited to, the right to edit such media, the right to use the media alone or together with other information, and the right to allow others to use or disseminate the media.

1.3 Event Content. You acknowledge and agree that CDCF, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to change any and all aspects of the Event, including but not limited to, the Event name, themes, content, program, speakers, performers, hosts, moderators, venue, and time.

1.4 Identification. All attendees must provide two forms of identification: one photo ID and one document proving their affiliation with the company name appearing on their registration (pay stub, business card, etc.).

1.5 Attendee Badge Usage. Attendee badges must be worn at all times in Event areas.

1.6 Visa Requirements. It is the sole responsibility of the attendee to take care of any government visa requirements. Attendees who require an entry visa should allow sufficient time for the application procedure. Attendees should contact the nearest embassy or consulate to determine the appropriate timing of their visa applications. CDCF will not contact embassies and consulates on behalf of visa applicants or provide any other assistance relating to visa issues. Failure to obtain a visa in advance of an Event does not constitute a valid basis for obtaining a refund.

2 Prohibited Conduct

2.1 Limitations on Use. By registering for a paid {CODESHOW}SE Event Pass, you agree not to share, sell or trade your badge. In the event that CDCF determines that you have violated this policy, CDCF may cancel your badge(s), retain any payments made by you, report you to law enforcement authorities, and ban you from future {CODESHOW}SE Events.

2.2 Disruptive Conduct. You acknowledge and agree that CDCF reserves the right to remove you from the Event if CDCF, in its sole discretion, determines that your presence or behavior create a disruption or hinder the Event or the enjoyment of the Event by other attendees. All {CODESHOW}SE badges are the property of CDCF and must be returned to CDCF upon request.

2.3 Sexual Harassment. CDCF is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.

2.4 Badge Misuse. Attendees wearing badges from previous {CODESHOW}SE Events or falsified badges and/or sharing or swapping badges will be immediately ejected from the Event and banned from future Events. CDCF considers such conduct theft of service, trespassing, and fraud and will report violators to law enforcement authorities. If such conduct is discovered after an Event, violators will be invoiced according to onsite registration pricing and will be required to pay their invoice in full in order to avoid being reported to law enforcement authorities.

2.5 Suitcasing. "Suitcasing" refers to the practice of attending a trade show but "working the aisles" from a suitcase or briefcase, soliciting business from other attendees and exhibitors. For the good of the show and the exhibitors supporting the show, the only legitimate place to conduct business during show hours is within a contracted exhibit space on the show floor. Exhibiting companies are encouraged to protect their investment and report any violations to CDCF management. Attendees observed soliciting business in the aisles or other public spaces, or in another company's booth, will be ejected from the Event and may be banned from future events in CDCF's sole discretion.

2.6 Photography, Recording, and Videotaping. Attendees may not record audio or video of sessions at {CODESHOW}SE Events. CDCF allows cameras in the session rooms and conference venues. Attendees may take pictures within the show for purposes of company or annual reports, company media pieces, marketing materials, etc.

{CODESHOW}SE Anti-harassment Policy

{CODESHOW}SE is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organizers.

Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Exhibitors in the sponsor or vendor tables or booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualized images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualized clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualized environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference without refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately. Conference staff can be identified by special badges with a red ribbon below the badge reading "STAFF."

Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.

We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
