Establishing a DevOps Culture @ Porsche - A GitLab Success Story
In early 2018, Porsche set itself the goal of becoming a digital company. At that time, however, neither our corporate culture nor infrastructure supported modern software development. From a developer’s point of view, change was needed. As developers, Dennis and Alberto sat in the front row of this transformation. Among others, they adopted GitLab. Today, more than 200 developers happily rely on GitLab to provision the complete stack of cloud infrastructure and services to create their products. Porsche invested heavily in automation and offer templates to product teams to get them started quickly. The introduction of GitLab at Porsche also led to increased collaboration between product teams. It was a turning point for software development at Porsche. In this session, Dennis and Alberto share their journey with attendees.

Join them to learn what impact GitLab had on Porsche to adapt faster to market needs and become a digital company.

Closing the SDLC loop - Security Panel
Every company is becoming a software company. Shipping code to production has to be faster and more secure, but many companies struggle to scale their current process to produce and deliver software. The SDLC is often misunderstood, and can become a great ally if used correctly. Security if left at the end of the process, creating disturbance and friction with engineering because it creates a different timeline. Let's see how we can put all stakeholders on the same page, at the same level, to share a common goal of delivering secure software faster.

One For All & All For Cloud Native: How IT Became Delta’s Differentiator
Limited Capacity seats available

For 95-year-old Delta airlines, migrating to a brave new digital world of cloud native tech is how the organization plans to enable scalability and technical flexibility. Why? Because Delta sees IT as a key differentiator as travelers continue to shift online and focus on digital offerings and ease. This presentation will provide insight into Delta journeys from running applications on VMs to the rapid expansion of their on-prem cloud platform as well as their public cloud platform. Jasmine James (IT Manager and head of Delta’s DevOps Center of Excellence) and Chris Bolton (Senior Engineer and impetus behind Delta’s forthcoming Cloud Native Center of Excellence) will share not only the vision but also the nitty gritty details of how Delta is making this strategic move.

GitLab All the Way Down: A small startup's tale of growing with GitLab
Limited Capacity seats available

Sat in the kitchen, my co-founder and I freshly just having quit our jobs, we were at work on the MVP of what would become 9fin. We were already using an online hosted Git repo for source control, but the need for coordination on what we were building led us to look for something which combined Private Git repos and Issue Management. GitLab was our choice.

Three years later, we've gone from 1 to 30+ projects, from no CI to automated and on demand jobs deploying in multiple environments, business and product teammates collaborating within GitLab and even building our own tools on top of GitLab for ChatOps and Review Apps. This is our journey, and how we got here. I'll share how we slowly grew our use of GitLab, the surprising human factors and pains in adopting better DevOps, and the benefits we have gained along the way.

Evolve into a DevOps Butterfly
Limited Capacity seats available

Two years ago wellD decided to migrate our infrastructure from VM/SVN/Jenkins to GitLab (on K8S infrastructure). This paradigm shift has had a butterfly (no pun intended) effect on our work methodology:
- we have adopted a branching strategy
- we had to design a version release strategy
- develop the CI/CD scripts for each project
- we had to improve our pipeline to give fast feedback to develop team

Our DevOps travel has been started two years ago, but as of today it's still not finished: the way we approach the aforementioned problems is continuously evolving and improving. In this talk we will summarise the most interesting challenges we faced, explain how we are solving them and how the GitLab Auto DevOps CI scripts have inspired us.

What Not to do While Using Gitlab

Learning by doing is one of the simplest way for getting started with a new tool. However for getting started, people often read only success stories related to their tools and have no idea of all the failures the others went through.

In this talk we will first discuss why Gitlab was our first choice, then dive our audience in all the things we have made and tried with Gitlab that didn't work, and provide information on why all those things didn't work and how we solved them. We will also reflect on an idea of creating a Gitlab community where people and organizations share their gitlab adoption journeys, their challenge and how to creatively solved them.

Eliminating DevOps Data Silos by Tom West, Converging Data
  • Producing a single view of your DevOps process can be difficult and time consuming if you are using tools in varying echo systems. Which is why we created the GitLab app for Splunk. Using the data management and reporting capabilities of a data tool like Splunk, we were able to pull in data from different echo systems and produce that single picture. Accelerating delivery and making your delivery pipelines easier to manage. Best of all... It's free! Especially useful if you are locked into a particular toolset for part of your pipeline

    Exploring Gitlab Data with Meltano by Ioannis Roussos
  • Meltano is Gitlab’s open source convention-over-configuration product for the whole data lifecycle, all the way from extracting data to analyzing it. It provides an integrated workflow for data ops, data engineering, analytics, business intelligence, and data science. If Gitlab is part of your team’s daily workflow, there is a trove of data that can be analyzed to generate insights about your product development process. Gitlab’s API provides access to all that info, while Meltano can be setup in minutes to extract, transform and generate reports for your data. We are going to use Meltano to fetch data from Gitlab’s main project, and showcase some interesting reports that can be generated.

Using chaos engineering in Gitlab pipelines for faster hardening by Umasankar Mukkara, MayaData India

In addition we will look at how the GitLab suite helped with the full product lifecycle (from issue creation to deployment and monitoring)
