Top 8 talks of HighLoad++ Armenia. Part 2
Have you ever wondered, what makes the greatest impact on your career and professional development? The fact is that mere knowledge is not enough. Improvement requires constantly expanding the angle of view and communicating with colleagues from other companies with different experience. HighLoad++ Armenia is one of the best ways to be aware of everything that is happening in IT right now.
So, we are waiting for you in Yerevan on December 15-16, a professional conference for developers of high-load systems supported by Yandex, who has 25 years of expertise in developing high-load services that are used by millions of people all over the world.
Let's get acquainted with the speakers and their talks.
Top talks of HighLoad++ Armenia
Addison Schultz is a web developer & designer from Amsterdam. Working the last 5 years on collaborative tooling, he’s worked with some of the world’s leading design and development companies, providing product teams with advice and industry advice on how teams can build better products, faster.
On a HighLoad++ Armenia Addison will talk about how deprecates features and products in your projects. Nobody likes ambiguity — especially when it comes to the stability of an endpoint or feature, and the expectations for availability long term. Avoid common pitfalls and explore a critical area where trust is built with developers through thoughtful, best-in-class deprecation strategy.
Crux Conception is the retired Criminal Profiler & Hostage Negotiator. He has taken his years of training, education, and experience to develop a method that will allow individuals within The Tech Community to utilize: social, people, and observation skills, to detect potential theft and acts of company espionage.
When we hear the word “Ransomware,” is it possible that before a cyberattack is initiated and hackers/cyberthieves penetrate through your online security system… someone on the inside offered valuable information to the hackers, giving them the ability to hold your company for RANSOME? Is it possible to think that an individual or organization, worlds away, actually-know how much a company is willing to pay? Are we that unaware to think that someone on the inside supported the hackers/cyberthieves with valuable information regarding your company’s security system and protocols?
For example, what if AT&T had a disgruntled employee (with pertinent knowledge regarding AT&T’s security system and protocol). To a SOCIAL ENGERNER, this is the perfect candidate to recruit, gather valuable data, and then relay that information to a team of hackers/cyberthieves.
Daniel Podolsky has 30 years of experience, as a sysadmin, devops, developer, lead, CTO and homegrown philosopher. That is what he says about his talk on HighLoad++ Armenia: “First of all: I’m an engineer and I’m looking at almost everything from the engineers perspective. We all know how hard the work in the go-go-go project could be. I was there as a developer, lead, CTO and do remember every lovely day I was there. And I think we could make the situation better!”
If 1% of your 100 device fleet goes offline, it’s 1 device. Maybe your use-case can live with that. But can your use-case be bullet proof with 1% of 10 million devices (100000) going offline? If the answer is no, then it is time to learn about resilience at scale.
In this session Alina Dima will focus on explaining resilience at scale, and how scale uncovers problems you don’t see otherwise, and providing examples of mitigation strategies you can build with AWS IoT, to ensure that your IoT application in its entirety is operating reliably at scale.
- Understanding what resilience at scale is, with concrete examples of what could go wrong
- Learn how to ensure your IoT application is resilient at scale using AWS IoT
- Take home a mental model for building resilience at scale
That's all for now. Don't forget to buy tickets as soon as possible. The price is soaring — the closer the conference is, the more it costs.
See you at the conference!
