    Don't Be the Next 503 Headline

    Many websites are most vulnerable to failure on the very day they achieve their greatest success. If your site can't sustain a big spike in traffic, "almost-always available" isn't good enough. The right burstable and resilient cloud platform can make all the difference.

    We'll share best practices for brands whose traffic scales from a few thousand visitors to tens of millions within a day, sometimes unexpectedly. We'll give an an insider's point of view toward building highly available, highly elastic Drupal sites that will perform at their best when it's most needed. Learn how web developers prepare their sites for high traffic events or unexpected emergencies, and what you can do to be ready for the unexpected.

    An Operating System for the Data Center Computer

    Today's applications and data have outgrown single machines. Whether organizations like it or not, their engineers are building distributed systems. The computer is now the data center, the process is now a distributed system, and threads are now components or instances of the distributed system. But operating these distributed systems on the data center computer is still a mostly manual endeavor, even though concepts of modern operating systems apply naturally.

    What would it take to build a multi-user, time-sharing operating system for the data center computer? Ben will dissect this question and more in his session. In particular, he'll focus on Apache Mesos, a kernel for such an operating system, and the primitives and abstractions it provides to programmers building and running distributed systems.

    Bringing the Unix Philosophy to Big Data

    Nearly forty years ago, the Unix philosophy fundamentally changed the way we think of computing systems: instead of a sealed monolith, the system became a collection of small, easily understood programs that could be quickly connected in novel and ad hoc ways. Today, big data looks much like the operating systems landscape in the pre-Unix 1960s: complicated frameworks surrounding by a priesthood that must manage and protect a fragile system.

    We will describe and demonstrate Manta, a new object store featuring in situ compute that brings the Unix philosophy to big data, allowing tools like grep, awk and sed to be used in map-reduce fashion on arbitrary amounts of data. We will describe both the design challenges in building Manta (a system built largely in node.js) and our experiences since launching it in the summer -- including some of the systems that we and others have built on top of it.

    Bio

    Chris joined Heroku three years ago when it was a small SOMA based startup. He was given the challenging task of rebuilding the support team. Eventually he lead and grew the team through it's transition from Ruby-only deployments with a few thousand deployed apps to the run-anything polyglot platform with millions of deployed apps. Prior to joining Heroku, he spent three years at another ruby deployment company supporting the likes of GitHub, New Relic, Zendesk and Groupon in their early days. For better or worse if you've needed help with a ruby app in the past six years Chris has probably been there to support you.

    Engineering Your Way Out of Support

    Every support request represents a flaw in your product. The traditional approach of throwing people at the support problem masks these product flaws from the product designers and engineers. This leads to large and tiered support organizations creating unnecessarily complex escalation paths.

    By embedding support directly into the product engineering teams Heroku makes support part of the product. By taking an engineering-driven approach to support our team has automated L1/L2 support, created a means to keep their development skills sharp, and developed tools that bubble up product flaws to our product teams. With a very lean support team we've been able to drive customer satisfaction up and stagnate overall ticket volume while undergoing massive growth as a business.

    This talk explores how Heroku thinks about and delivers customer support, the tools we use to improve the products we support, how we improve customer experience and where we're going next.

    Setting up New Relic's Infrastructure: A Bunch of Things We Did Wrong and a Few We Did Right

    Benefit from our mistakes and hindsight! There's a lot that goes into running a SaaS company - from continuous deployment to DNS to who gets to play with production. We've been running New Relic for over five years now, but if we had to do it over again there are a few things we'd do differently. But there's also a couple things we'd repeat.

    Come with your questions to this interactive session where we dissect some of the "big decisions" we made in the world of technical operations and how they effected the company and culture.

    Streaming The Dream

    Everybody is talking about the advantages of a remote workforce, while the challenges are often overlooked. As GitHub approaches Dunbar's famous limit, a self-organizing force has sprung into existence to do battle with the supervillains called Loneliness, Isolation, and Guilt. Under the the nom de guerre of Streaming Eagle, Patrick and Drew use any means necessary to proselytize, protect, and amplify GitHub's unique approach to work. The Eagle is excited to take FutureStack on a mixed-media adventure through the development of the team, from its beginnings as a joke to the core of the company's efforts to explore and innovate internal communication.

    Mobile, The Latest Innovative Trend

    My talk will be focused on how mobile has affected our lives over the past decade and what technology companies need to do in order to keep pushing that forward. We can literally be connected 24/7 these days and that has changed the way we communicate in our work and personal lives. There is an intersection between what we have to do, and what we want to do that is becoming more blurred as technology becomes easier for the average person to grasp and integrate into their lives.

    Consumers rely on companies to not only create this technology, but make the technology simple to use and understand. If it's meant to replace something else we already use, the technology has to be even better. We hate change, but we are willing to do so if it solves a problem or removes a pain point in our lives.

    Many people misunderstand innovation—most innovation is incremental. It is the revolutionary changes that people point to as innovative, but that's not always what makes life easier for us as a workforce or consumers.

    My goal will be to tie together the innovation and technology of developers with the expectations of the market.

    Confessions of a Search Addict: Everything you know about log management (and search) is wrong

    Forget everything you know about log data… odds are if your understanding isn't out of date, there's a good chance it's being applied wrong. Search paved the path for the Internet revolution, search changed how we look at everything—now search has changed the way you can use your endless log and machine data to proactively address and answer operational issues.

    Jon will share what a decade and a half leading development on some of the worlds' most complex, distributed and cloud-centric search engines has taught him about solving the daily critical problems of #DevOps and Engineering teams. And how looking at massive volumes of log data daily for years has completely reshaped how he views, uses and expects both logging and search technology to function in the years ahead, including best practices, insider secrets and predictions about what tomorrow's search development will bring.

    BLUE Sky Thinking About APM

    Prior to adopting New Relic, SDS had difficulties tracking contractual service levels, performance, and end-user experience. The incumbent monitoring capabilities concentrated exclusively on infrastructure components and left many gaps. Incidents and root cause analysis were supported by largely anecdotal evidence and hours of parsing log files for various components. Prospects for improvement seemed to require a substantial capital investment in software tools along with expert personnel to configure and maintain a traditional enterprise monitoring stack.

    In the New Relic era, SDS has been able to substantiate service level compliance with clients and internal stakeholders with metrics. The existing team was able to configure and support the monitoring capability without specialized skills in a specific brand of monitoring tools. For the first time, SDS has been able to fully quantify end-user experience across multiple geographies as well as provide complete transparency to BLUE SaaS performance to all stakeholders. Furthermore, we are able to begin leveraging DevOps methodologies to enrich the partnership between SDS Product Development and Infrastructure Systems to increase speed to value of new features and capabilities for our customers.

    Extremes and Outliers

    Running software is a business of uncertainty and risk.

    Uncertainty about the conditions our software is running in, and risk that the conditions could change against our favor at any time.

    To make sense of the risk involved and to gauge out what conditions hurt our software, we need to go beyond just simple data. We need to look at extremes and outliers, at the near misses, the conditions that almost bring down our application.

    Extremes and outliers will tell you where your application breaks, where its seams are, and how much risk it can bear until it falls apart.

    In this talk we will look at examples from other industries where small outliers led to catastrophic events. We'll find out why we need to consider these scenarios more explicitly in the field of building and operating web applications.

    Monitoring iOS and Android apps on Windows Azure with New Relic for Mobile

    Windows Azure Mobile Services provides a turnkey backend for native iOS and Android apps. With Mobile Services, it's easy to store relational, unstructured and binary data in the cloud, authenticate users, send push notifications and add custom logic. Turnkey backends and granular performance analytics don't have to be mutually exclusive, though-you can still take advantage of turnkey services without losing the insight that tools like New Relic can provide. You'll leave this session understanding how to configure advanced monitoring with a cloud-based mobile backend.

    Little teams with big results: NASA/JPL and Obama for America via AWS

    Abstract: In 2012 two small teams set about delivering on massive expectations, on "failure-is-not-an-option" projects, with extraordinarily limited time and resources. Both teams nailed it: every space geek in the world saw the Mars Curiosity Rover's first images live from Amazon S3 and Cloudfront and watched an HD live-stream of the event, and the 200+ custom applications (monitored and optimized via New Relic!) on AWS powering the radical Obama for America campaign played no small part in helping President Obama win his bid for re-election. Miles Ward, your presenter, worked embedded within these teams during the design, development, testing, deployment and operational phases of these projects, and can relay a few critical insights about the use of cloud at this scale. 200,000 WCU DynamoDB tables; replicating 27TB across the continent; 60+ terabit/s of live-streamed video; over a billion dollars in processed donations; hundreds of instances, 528,000 IOPS, oh my!

    Setting up New Relic's Infrastructure: A Bunch of Things We Did Wrong and a Few We Did Right

    Benefit from our mistakes and hindsight! There's a lot that goes into running a SaaS company - from continuous deployment to DNS to who gets to play with production. We've been running New Relic for over five years now, but if we had to do it over again there are a few things we'd do differently. But there's also a couple things we'd repeat.

    Come with your questions to this interactive session where we dissect some of the "big decisions" we made in the world of technical operations and how they effected the company and culture.

  • Nick Floyd

    Senior Software Engineer, .NET Agent, New Relic

    Bio

    Nick Floyd is a nerd at heart, a geek by design and a developer by craft who loves being able to change the world one "byte" at a time with his family. He and his five kids are often found contributing to open source, hacking new projects, soldering breadboards and building backyard ballistics all in the name of "nerd life." He is a polyglot developer who has a strong passion for all things API, REST and anything else that helps him and his kids bend the rules of science. He has contributed to projects such as RadioShack.com, Gamestop.com, 52 projects and often writes and presents on REST based APIs. He now works for New Relic finding it a privilege to be able to create tools that help developers everywhere. At Nick's core he believes everyone should avoid going for work-life balance and instead go toward work-life awesome; involving everyone in your circles in what you do and why you do it.

    Nerd Life Balance : Achieving Work Life Awesome

    For years now people in technology have been part of some seriously amazing movements in the software industry. To reach these great heights of innovation developers have always accepted that sacrifices have to be made. Often times the unspoken mindset was that you work until the task is done or that more hours often meant more code (good or bad). The idea has traditionally been that if we focus on the tasks and work we will inevitably achieve our goals and everyone will be happy. Most of us can remember working some really long weeks and hitting the "goal" but not feeling very happy.

    Here's a challenge for all developers who can relate to the above scenario: Go for work-life awesome not work life balance.

    There is no such thing as "work-life balance" or at least the phrase implies something that cannot be; balance assumes equality on both sides. The fact is that work and life are not faucets we can turn off and walk away from, so instead of becoming frustrated at trying to compartmentalize we should try to make these aspects of our lives more congruent. Work should fit into our lives not go against it - more like velcro and less like sandpaper.

    This talk will disprove some common developer work-life myths then work to equip you as a developer, manager and/or all around geek to be able solve you're own personal conundrum of how win at life and work, how to create amazing things no matter where you are and to be able to successfully do the things that make your inner nerd tick with your friends and family.

Their tools have evolved rapidly from a single camcorder and a laptop, to an 8 camera multimedia broadcast jubilee complete with pre-show shenanigans and post-game wrap-up.

    Streaming The Dream

    Everybody is talking about the advantages of a remote workforce, while the challenges are often overlooked. As GitHub approaches Dunbar's famous limit, a self-organizing force has sprung into existence to do battle with the supervillains called Loneliness, Isolation, and Guilt. Under the the nom de guerre of Streaming Eagle, Patrick and Drew use any means necessary to proselytize, protect, and amplify GitHub's unique approach to work. The Eagle is excited to take FutureStack on a mixed-media adventure through the development of the team, from its beginnings as a joke to the core of the company's efforts to explore and innovate internal communication.

    Bio

    Peter is a long-time member of the Heroku team. Having helped build out the Heroku Postgres database service he accidentally (and begrudgingly) became a SQL guru and has to live with that guilt. He's answered more pages and support tickets than he can remember, and has been to blame for all the problems of several teams and their products over the last few years. Before joining Heroku, Peter's checkered past ranged across open-source desktop media players, scholarly Shakespearean texts, hand-held game development, and oceanographic field research.

    Good Architects Borrow, Great Architects Steal

    How many thousand servers per ops person does your organization have? Heroku Postgres has just the one for all our thousands of database servers, and that person is just an engineer on a one-week rotation.

    By architecting for simplicity and consistency, Heroku Postgres reduced servers to something more like transistors. By lifting old game development tricks, we turned complex operational problems into simple state machines. Relying on other cloud service providers for their specialities lets us focus on doing what we do best: serving up your data to you better than anyone else.

    In this talk, I'll cover the architecture that powers the Heroku Postgres service, how it evolved from humble beginnings, and talk about the lucky breaks, the gnarly mistakes, and the unknowable choices we made along the way.

    A Look into the Future of Cloud Application Development

    Just ten years ago, few companies were developing and running applications in the cloud. Today, it's become pervasive. Leading analysts predict that over 80% of new applications are being deployed on cloud platforms. More importantly, the pace of innovation, change and disruption continues to accelerate. This talk will provide a unique opportunity to hear from the chief technology officer at the leading PaaS and cloud expert who has worked with hundreds of companies that are leveraging cloud application development platforms and adopting next generation technologies to achieve their business objectives. It will also provide insight into what's worked, what hasn't, what to consider to successfully migrate to the cloud, as well as what the future holds for DevOps, IT and more.

    Immutability and Continuous Delivery - Friends or Foes?

    As propagated by Rich Hickey and the likes, using immutable data structures is key to building maintainable and scalable software systems. Gilt is currently exploring how to leverage these thoughts and concepts when it comes to the configuration of run ­time stacks. By the end of the year the runtime platform (Codename Galactica) is expected to manage more than 1000 immutable service instances. The platform is implemented in Scala and the talk will feature a live ­demo of the platform in action. The talk will then describe what we have learned and implemented so far. It will also give a glimpse of the future and what we will do next to deliver on our vision of All ­Ops & Zero ­Waiting

    Continuum Between SaaS and PaaS: Finding the Sweet Spot

    Platform as a Service (PaaS) can give you the ultimate in productivity - you focus on writing the differentiated code that your application needs to be successful, while not worrying about boilerplate services, and system administration. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) typically provides vanilla virtual machines - you have the ultimate in flexibility, but you also take on significant configuration and management responsibilities. This talk will explore how we find the sweet spot on the continuum between these two models to provide both the productivity and flexibility you desire.

  • Sacha Labourey

    CEO & Founder, Cloudbees

    Bio

    Sacha was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland and graduated in 1999 from EPFL. It was during Sacha's studies in 1996 that he started his first consulting business - Cogito Informatique. In 2001, he joined Marc Fleury's JBoss project as a core contributor and implemented JBoss' original clustering features. In 2003, Sacha founded the European headquarters for JBoss and, as GM for Europe, led the strategy and partnerships that helped fuel the company's growth in that region. While in this position, he led the recruitment of some of JBoss' key talent and acquisition of key technology. In 2005, he was appointed CTO of JBoss, Inc. and as such, oversaw all of the JBoss engineering activities. In June 2006, JBoss, Inc. was acquired by Red Hat (NYSE:RHT). After the acquisition, Sacha remained JBoss CTO and played a crucial role in integrating and productizing JBoss software with Red Hat offerings. In 2007, Sacha became co-General Manager of Red Hat's middleware division. He ultimately left Red Hat in April 2009. Following a period of research, Sacha became convinced that public cloud infrastructure would lead a fundamental IT paradigm shift and that middleware would play a key role in that shift. As a result CloudBees, Inc. was formed in April 2010.

    The Cloud and the Fall of Giants

    After decades of flourishing business for legacy software vendors, the cloud comes as a wake-up call for the old ways of licensing and providing software. Years of best practices around how IT can efficiently provide business value via large, on-premise data centers are being left in the dust by a new cloud model. In this presentation, Sacha will cover how the transition from a legacy software era to the new services era is radically changing how IT produces business value and how IT services are consumed. Learn how this shift is already impacting the software giants we thought were unshakable and how early enterprise adopters will benefit from the era of the cloud.

Prior to joining New Relic, Shaun lead the application security team at Intuit. He originally started his career as a software developer at HP.

    AppSec in a DevOps World

    We all love DevOps and Continuous Deployment because it allows us to deploy more reliable software faster. But are we willing to sacrifice the security of our and our customer's data for those benefits? Fortunately we don't need to… but we do need to think about application security differently than we have in the past. Our traditional application security methodologies present a host of challenges in the fast moving world of DevOps, including:
    - How do we ensure that the code we deploy is secure when it was only written just this morning?
    - How can we provide the security our customers expect without impacting our speed and agility?
    - How can we insert security into an SDLC when there is no formal SDLC?
    - How do you deal with auditors that don't understand DevOps and Continuous Deployment?
    At New Relic, we deploy on a daily basis and face all of these challenges. We'll talk about how we are addressing them as well as our vision for the evolution of application security.
