Upcoming events I'll be attending:
One-day, single-track conference on site reliability, cloud enablement, and production-grade container orchestration. Confirmed speaker line up include Steve Conine (founder Wayfair), Todd Palino (Author of Kafka: The Definitive Guide), Liz Fong (Google) and many more. In collaboration with Wayfair Tech, BoSRE will be hosted in Boston’s Back Bay.
The Global Women in Data Science (WiDS) Conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. This annual one-day technical conference provides an opportunity to hear about the latest data science related research and applications in a broad set of domains, All genders are invited to participate in the conference, which features exclusively female speakers.
SYMPOSIUM ON THE FUTURE OF COMPUTATION IN SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING
Medicine and health care, like other aspects of life in the 21st century, are being reshaped by computational science, big data, and information technology. Given gigabytes of personal genomic data, therapies can be tailored to the individual patient and the individual disease. Standardized electronic health records create an information resource that improves decision making in the doctor’s office and also sheds light on health status across entire populations. Machine learning and artificial intelligence may soon augment the physician’s diagnostic skills. As these innovations promise to improve health and prolong lives, however, they also raise sticky economic and ethical questions. Many new medical interventions come at a fabulous price; can we assure equitable access to them? How do we preserve privacy and personal dignity when the “healing arts” become a high-tech enterprise? This symposium will explore all these questions and more.
"Advancing Well-Being Seminar Series"
Join Don Norman for a discussion of the new demands upon the discipline of design for the 21st century. Design is a way of thinking of addressing the fundamental issues (solving the right problem), of treating the role of people and humanity in the complex sociotechnical systems that define our era. We are also hampered by a technology-centered perspective that forces people to be subservient to the requirements of our technology instead of building around the capabilities and needs of people. This framework is explicit for some people and implicit and subconscious for others. The goal in this talk is to spend the first half of the time to set up the framework and then to leave the rest for discussion.
For this Meetup, we'll be discussing breakdowns in process, people, communication and code. Our goal is to share MTTR in the DevOps practice. Failing is part of the process. Recovery and lessoned learned is the value add. We want to take a deep dive into some real situations and share experiences with the community for discussions.
All Day DevOps is a FREE online community responsible for creating the world's largest DevOps conference.
All Day DevOps 2017 will offer over 100, 45-minute sessions across six tracks in all time zones, simultaneously. Tracks include Continuous Everything, Modern Infrastructure and Monitoring, DevSecOps, Cultural Transformations, DevOps in Government, and the newly created "Tech Crawl" where companies will invite you to a sneak peek of what it's like to work on DevOps in their organization.
All sessions are practitioner-led with a "no vendor pitch" policy strictly enforced.
