In his current role, Elad leads the development of the AXIOM platform - a universal agriculture platform that provides Ag professionals with smart and actionable insights.
Once upon a time, there were just two data pipelines - a data warehouse to support analysis activities, and a reporting pipeline that produced some strange numbers for investors' board meetings ,and all was good. But in today's data wild west, we are getting more demands - from business users who would like to transform their idea into a POC, deploy ML models in production, ensure quality in the data pipeline with regression and anomaly detection. Keeping up with this challenges require an agile, automated, and cost-effective operation that isn't always part of our data team responsibility. On the other hand ,this may sound familiar with the DevOps challenges we facing daily in a SaaS team? so let's add some DevOps to the rescue. I'm sure Gandalf's famous "you should not pass" comes into your mind rejecting this idea, but let's give it a try with a practical, informal introduction to DataOps.

You're driving a car and like any other it went through crash testing before mass manufacturing and shipment. Now imagine tests were done for each component separately and not the car as a whole. Would you still drive it? Not so sure! The same is true with Load testing in production. Having them on real-time data is possible and helps you to increase your predictions and business performance. In this talk we will explain how we’ve touched the holy grail - Load Testing in production while minimizing risk and human intervention. We will go over the gains (uptime and predictability) and tradeoffs (risks and costs). We will go over how automating load tests drove a deeper cultural shift by increasing developer confidence in their services, and promoting more complete service ownership, all of which with almost no additional overhead to the developers. And lastly, we will share more info about the service that made it all happen. By the end of this talk, we hope we’ll have you convinced that performing Load Tests in production is not such a crazy concept anymore and inspire you to try it yourself.

As a backend and infra developer turned “DevOps,” Itiel is an avid public speaker that loves talking about things such as cloud infrastructure, Kubernetes, Python, observability, and R&D culture.
Kubernetes systems are extremely powerful - providing highly distributed and sometimes infinite scale. However, this can also be a double-edged sword from an operations and management perspective. This talk will dive into some good practices for designing and embedding monitoring and observability best practices from day one for complex K8s microservices operations. These life lessons were learned firsthand from working with large-scale, microservices systems daily for the last four years and experiencing the challenges of troubleshooting and maintaining this complex system at scale. Tips I wish someone had shared with me when I was just getting started with microservices.

She currently leads the Data Engineering Group at Outbrain responsible for the management of Outbrain’s data platform. Dafna is committed to supporting youth, and particularly young women enter into successful careers in the hi-tech ecosystem.
Our day-to-day work relies on internal tools. We find a weak spot, we write a script or even a small program, and pass it along to our peers. Sometimes these tools are so useful our developers request we add more features and the list just keeps growing. In this presentation, we’ll explore how we changed our mindset and began relating to our developers as customers, and the internal tools we create as products. We’ll share the story of how this culture shift led us to build the Cloud Platform console that now consists of 10 different products (and more on the way). Our internal tools (products!) are built with the full product cycle of Build->Measure->Learn->Build. We gather continuous feedback, collect analytics, define KPIs, and continue to improve. We invested in a proper backend and frontend, and discovered that our developers love it! It shows them how seriously we take them and their needs. And this makes them want to join in the effort too, so we can all benefit from better, more effective, and powerful internal tools to use every day. In this lightning talk, we’ll give a quick overview of our journey towards building amazing team relationships which drive Outbrain's engineering velocity.

The Battle of Policies: OPA’s Rego vs. JSON Schema
Noaa Barki | Developer Advocate at Datree https://sessionize.com/image/a5e7-400o400o2-B8tFovqxaj9tTwW424qdQY.jpg Planning and designing application architecture, as well as researching and adopting development best practices and coding standards are true passions of mine. Over the last four years, my work has primarily centered around understanding each part of the full-stack development process and learning about the ecosystem of an application. Currently, I develop in React, NodeJS, and Go. Additionally, I serve as a manager of the Github Israel community, following my aspiration to encourage and empower other developers to deepen the decisions made during the development processes, expand the research conducted into the technologies we use, and share the knowledge with others.
On the one hand, it’s well known that OPA's Rego is very popular and easy to get started with, but hard to master. On the other hand, JSON Schema is considered one of the fundamental libraries for validating manifests… but which one is THE ONE for you? In this talk, we'll battle it out head to head with the two ultimate libraries OPA's Rego and JSON Schema. We'll test both of the solutions by validating Kubernetes manifests against real-life use cases and review their pros and cons. We’ll explore how we can integrate each one of them into the CI/CD pipeline, and learn how they work under the hood. Finally, we’ll make the case for which one to use in which scenario. May the best config language win!

Shedding Light on API Traffic Inside K8s
Alex Haiut | VP Eng & co-founder at UP9 https://sessionize.com/image/6a01-400o400o2-rfLYn2y2sYQJQM16NAVLeR.jpg Alex is an experienced software engineer and development manager with over 20 years of experience building security, network monitoring, and developer solutions. In his current role as VP Engineering and co-founder of UP9 he and his team build tools to help developers build more scalable and reliable software running in cloud-native environments.
Microservices-based architecture and cloud-native solutions are now widely adopted by the industry. These architectures bring many benefits, especially on the operational side – apps are more scalable and resilient. Developers on the other hand have lost quite an important ability to easily inspect communications coming into and from their services. While the coding still feels the same these services are now wrapped in Docker containers running inside a Kubernetes cluster, to which engineers often don’t have access or aren’t familiar. During this talk, I will demonstrate techniques and open source tools to help software developers and DevOps engineers troubleshoot their applications running in a Kubernetes cluster, with a focus on the ability to inspect service communication. By attending, you’ll learn how to significantly reduce response time to incidents, boost DevOps efficiency, and empower better ownership of services.

Rotem is an engineering veteran, with experience as a software developer, architect, product manager, with a focus on the security discipline. She has many years of experience in all aspects of Kubernetes engineering from deployment across various environments, through monitoring––with specific expertise in working with Prometheus and its open source suite––as well as bringing deep know-how in all aspects of IaC, driving best practices and methods wherever she goes.
CVE shock" is the state of total helplessness felt by a dev or security engineer facing the overwhelming list of CVEs returned by the vulnerability scanner. Sound familiar? We'd like to bring you a therapeutic and cathartic rant session for those who have felt "CVE shock" firsthand and demonstrate that there is hope! In this talk we'll share the findings from a market research project on the state of application vulnerability scanning. We will demystify vulnerability scanners and show what units of information go into the process. Show what purposes they serve in organizations. And through real life examples we will prove that not all the vulnerabilities are relevant or exploitable. This information is used to construct VEX documents which are destined to become industry standard for making SBOM accurate and eventually leverage these to reduce the noise, and only focus on the CVEs relevant to your application.

Dev Team Metrics That Matter
Avishag Sahar | Engineering Team Lead https://sessionize.com/image/6378-400o400o2-wq6YgMQWkUvAVBe6b8vcxW.jpg Avishag started her tech career at the young age of 18, as a soldier in Unit 8200, an Israeli Intelligence Corps unit of the Israel Defense Forces responsible for collecting signal intelligence (SIGINT) and code decryption. Avishag worked as a Business Intelligence Developer for a few years, and then made the move to Allscripts Healthcare Solutions, where she joined as a software engineer. A few years later, Avishag joined Cisco, where she developed features for Cisco Umbrella’s (SWG). 10 months ago, Avishag came to LinearB, where she develops features for their web app, WorkerB and publicAPI. Outside of work, Avishag loves to dance. In fact, you can find her teaching Zumba classes in her spare time.
What is the most valuable outcome? This is the most important question to answer before starting an engineering metrics program. In this talk, I discuss which dev team metrics matter most, the outcome they produce, and pitfalls to avoid when starting a metrics initiative. The truth is no one really likes being measured especially devs but business leaders like looking at numbers so they grab what’s easily available like the number of code changes, agile velocity, and individual dev metrics. These types of metrics are unbalanced, exclude context, and hurt engineering culture as a whole. What you measure is what your team will produce. If you start measuring the number of code changes as a key performance metric, you are going to see coding time, PR size, and Cycle Time all increase. Don’t fall into this trap. In this session we’ll explore which team level metrics are most significant, the outcomes they produce, and strategies that will help you avoid the mistakes I’ve already made.

Tidhar is curious about new tech improvements and how they can make developers’ lives easier.
Once upon a time there was a deployment process. In spite of its young age, it had the responsibility to deploy a service to hundreds of servers in multiple data centers around the world. It performed well, but its young age was apparent - it used to fail from time to time and couldn’t explain exactly why. As time passed the process grew up, its framework was replaced with a new one, and many features were added to it. One day the process was asked to deploy an additional new service, and another one, and another one. At this point, it was required to perform a significant improvement. Join me for a short story about the coming of age of a deployment process.

They say there's no such thing as a talent shortage but building a great platform engineering team remains no easy feat. This talk will share lessons learned from firsthand experience to help you scale your platform teams and even help you think out of the box with your potential candidates. When companies start to scale, one of the core pieces of ensuring business continuity is the SLA of the infrastructure your applications are running on. When you're scaling a company from the ground up many times one of the greatest challenges is actually learning to grow your teams in a very competitive hiring landscape where there is a consistent talent shortage. In this talk, I will share my experience in building successful platform engineering teams over the last decade at a number of unicorns and global companies, across multiple time zones. How I identified the right candidates and sometimes candidates that were seemingly not the right fit, but delivered immense value. I'll dive into some of the common misconceptions and confusion around platform engineering vs. SRE, how to delegate roles and responsibilities that map to the right skill set, as well as how to measure success by defining the correct KPIs for your team.

We often hear the words security, application security, and product security tossed around - but what does this really mean in practice? When we think about how we embed product security from the early stages of design what do we really need to look at to get it right? If we take a look at today's products, they are composed of several layers of application and business logic, each layer has its own set of considerations and controls for applying and embedding product security. This talk will focus on the different engineering layers of today's products - the infrastructure, runtime, code, pipelines, and third-party application integrations, as well as the peripheral business and security operations. With these layers in mind it is most certainly possible to apply security controls based on highly recommended open-source projects that every developer should know about. This talk will walk through which tools are right for which job, and good ways to automate security from your very first line of code.

From the creators of last year's "Zombie Bustersm," I'm proud to bring you "Hardware Control Freaks!" Isn't it frustrating to spend a lot of precious time doing tedious tasks to set up new data center hardware? With the help of this talk you will learn how to create electricity metrics, build an end-to-end framework that will automatically analyze space and electricity limitations for precise hardware placement, and allocate servers to the R&D teams as needed. This provides full automation for once tedious tasks, saving precious time, removing human error, and ensuring maximum efficiency.
