Track 3: App Dev – Building Solutions for Digital Transformation
Analytics and Agile: It’s effect on reporting and requirements
The Commonwealth owns and maintains terabytes of data, but have you harnessed to true value of your data? Usage of static, complex reports can (and should) be heavily minimized by applying analytics. And, in the process, perhaps change to the evolution of SDLC to agile. Think in terms of – what buckets of information do you need to collect and analyze?
Joining the Open Source World
Commonwealth developers have been leveraging open source code for years, but can we actually think about sharing OUR code? In 2018, GitHub was bought by Microsoft. If you leverage DevOps, what changes need to be considered on ensure any thought of code sharing is safe and purposeful?
Micro Services Containers
Problems arise when the supporting software environment is not identical. Containers are a solution to the problem of how to get software to run reliably when moved from one computing environment to another. Discover open source tools which bundle of logical units that make up an application. Discover tools for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications, and grouping containers that make up an application into logical units for easy management and discovery.
Users continually need improvements and additional capabilities faster than they ever have in the past. DevOps provides the culture, tools, and processes needed to deliver on these expectations. We’ll review how agile principles are made real with Extreme Programming(XP) iterations to deliver incremental solutions with high quality partnering with the business to enable their evolving needs. Project management, quality assurance, production support, and many other practices are matured through DevOps teams which have Autonomy, Mastery, and Purpose. How these standard approaches from the commercial sector can be leveraged across public sector teams will be discussed.
