Progressive Delivery - isn't that just CD with a new name?
Progressive Delivery is the technique of delivering changes first to small, low-risk audiences, and then expanding to larger and riskier audiences, validating the results as you go. For teams that have been running a CD pipeline this will feel like a natural progression—as it should. Many of the core benefits, tools, and mechanics remain the same. The primary distinction is the incorporation of a ‘built-for-failure’ mentality. In order to be successful in this delivery model teams need to have a system that manages the separation of code deployment from feature release, as well as control of the release, like a valve or gate that you can slowly open and close.

Integrating Open Source Security Into Your CI/CD Pipeline
 Jenkins' CI/CD pipeline has changed the pace of development, speeding up how products are built and released. Security tools need to keep up, running continuously to shift left security to avoid bottlenecks that can impact production and release. 
As open source components comprise the largest part of the code base in modern applications, it can be a challenge to ensure that only secure and compliant components are being used in products. We will offer a number of important tips and insights on how development and security teams can integrate automated Software Composition Analysis tools into their DevOps pipeline to mitigate exposure and build better products.

Adding Container Image Security Scanning and Best-practices Enforcement to Jenkins with Anchore
As container build techniques continue to extend into more software delivery flows, the variance in software being produced, in the form of container images, has increased dramatically. We present the Anchore security and best-practice enforcement system, and show how the open-source Anchore Engine can be quickly integrated into Jenkins 
flows. Anchore's policy-based scanning engine is customizable, including checks for software vulnerabilities, accidental presence of secrets/keys, Dockerfile checks, and more. In this talk, we provide an overview of Anchore's capabilities, & review examples of how Anchore security and best-practice scanning can be added quickly to existing 
Jenkins builds.

Modern Delivery for the Modern Enterprise: Top 5 Ways to Move DevOps Beyond IT
Modern enterprises strive to be product companies that move at market pace. Devs wants to empower the business and provide value faster. Everyone agrees that adopting a lean, agile culture that embraces new technology is the way to go. The halls of IT and business delivery echo with cries of “We need DevOps!” But business and IT are rarely aligned. ("You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." Inigo Montoya.) In this session we will cover the top five blockers that keep organizations from moving towards transformation. Using real-world examples, we’ll discuss how to align IT and business, move beyond “We need DevOps!” and become a modern delivery organization.

Securing Your CI/CD Pipeline
In 2017, hackers took three days to identify and exploit a new vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. In the post-Equifax world, moving new business requirements (e.g., a non-vulnerable version of Struts2) into production in under three days might just be the new normal for your CI/CD pipeline. Join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Eli Goldratt (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks. It starts with emphasizing the performance of the entire system and never passing known defects downstream.

Load testing reinvented for DevOps
 It’s now more important than ever that each new release delivers a positive user experience, but it’s hard to ensure this when legacy performance testing approaches are too late, too heavy, and too slow to give DevTest teams the instant performance insight they need on each incremental change. 

Molly Driscoll explains how load testing is being reinvented for DevOps, covering where traditional load testing approaches fall short for Agile and DevOps, what’s needed to rapidly expose performance issues before they impact users, and new approaches to making load testing faster, simpler, and more realistic.

Moving from DevOps to DevSecOps with AST
 Moving from DevOps to DevSecOps is incorporating Application Security Testing into developers’ CI/CD already existing pipelines. Application Security Testing such as Static Analysis (SAST), Software Composition Analysis (SCA) and Interactive Application Analysis (IAST) allows development teams to be informed about security vulnerabilities that are being introduced to their codebase so that those vulnerabilities can be addressed immediately. The most prevalent challenge is understanding how to best tune Application Security Testing tools to meet your specific security posture goals that will allow the Application Security team to reduce risk via tighter integration with dev team efforts.

Improving your DevOps with GitKraken
In this session, find out how the GitKraken tools can empower your team with the insights you need to collaborate more efficiently and effectively. As a version control system, Git plays a vital role in managing the code that collaborators contribute to shared repositories during the DevOps process. The code is then used to perform continuous integration (CI) to create a build, test it, and eventually deploy it onto production. With GitKraken, your teams gain greater visibility into how your code has changed over time and more control in managing it. Join us to find out more!

Continuous Code Quality with SonarQube & SonarLint
It is a pretty common practice to use static analysis during the development process to check on quality, but what are we looking for exactly and what do we do with the findings?
This presentation explains the benefits of continuous code quality, which mechanically improves quality and sets very clear rules on the level of code expected from developers. It also will show how to integrate with the rest of the development ecosystem and how then get the best out of SonarLint and SonarQube.

CloudBees Core for Change Control and Code Release Visibility
Column Technologies will feature DevOps use cases that harness the power of CloudBees Core and Open Source Jenkins. Be confident that as code is released to production the task is captured automatically in your Enterprise Change Management /CMDB System, thus ensuring all needed controls are in place. Simultaneously, you'll be able to see how code releases impact performance by adding actionable events to your CI/CD pipeline and correlate the events with an APM tool such as AppDynamics. Easily identify if poor performance is related to a recent deployment.
