The reason is simple: GDPR is an 88-pages-long document and it is written in a language, not all IT people can understand. Therefore, DevClub does it for you. This is our translation of what GDPR means to IT, how it affects our development, business in general and how kittens are connected to all of that.

Announcement of Machine Learning focused 62nd DevClub.lv

Hi!

Machine Learning is booming but not so many has real life experience with it. Some time ago we had Computer Vision focused event, but this time we invited experienced guys to share their knowledge how Machine Learning can be applied to solve other real life problems.

      • Arturs Valujevs from Intrum Global Technologies will give a talk How to Succeed with Machine Learning.
        There is certainly a growing demand for incorporating machine learning solutions into various types of business. Yet, the knowledge base is not always keeping up with hype around this subject. Some reports [source: Global CIO Point of View] tell us that 9 out of 10 CIOs plan to use machine learning solutions to achieve certain goals in their companies. Yet only around 20% actually have something in production and only 5% use machine learning extensivelly. Why? There are quite a few reasons, and that’s what this talk is all about.

      • Raivis Skadiņš from Tilde will give a talk Artificial Intelligence and Bots.
        In this session, we will go through various aspects of Bot development. We will start with an introduction, where I will introduce Bots (sometimes called also virtual assistants or conversational interfaces), I will tell why they are so popular now and outline main benefits. I will explain main concepts behind this technology – dialog management, natural language understanding, intents, entities etc. Then I will show what tools and technologies are there and how a typical bot is built. Finally I will tell about current limitations and challenges to deal with. And I hope there will be time for questions, discussions and exchange of ideas. I believe you will get good insight into bot development and understanding how you could introduce Bots in your projects.

  • Yury Nevinitsin  from Odnoklassniki.ru  will share an successful experience of deploying Druid in place of MSSQL
    “Druid is a high-performance, column-oriented, distributed data store” http://druid.io
    I will tell how they solved the situation when MSSQL-based statistics system (50TB sized) became:
    – slow: average response time was many times slower than required
    – unstable: at peak hours it was up to 30 minutes late
    – expensive: expences for Microsoft licences could be millions USD.
    In Odnoklassniki.ru Druid is used to store and query operational statistics for the last 2 years. At the moment we process tens billons records each day (hundreds gigabytes by size).
    Why Druid?
    We chose druid (among open-source solutions) because it promised us high-performance, scalability and fault-tolerance. All three properties were required, and there were no other solution at the moment of making decision.

  • Bogdan Ozerkin from SIA Dynatech will give a talk Log management in a Service architecture
    When you implement service architecture, there are many ways to screw up, one of which would be to miss out on debugging solutions. As you detect problems in your services, valuable insights on what’s going on “inside” should be available, in order to be able to react on incident and provide solutions faster. In this talk, I would like to dig in to the nature of logging, providing an overview on what it is and how do it in a Service architecture.

  • Dmitry Buzdin from Riga DevDays will give a talk “Continuous Testing at Scale”
    With the raise of Continuous Delivery test automation is becoming a norm rather than luxury. However, when dealing with high-complexity, large and modular projects you would be disappointed to learn that it is a challenge to set-up a fully automated continuous testing pipeline. The problems you are encountering are tool incompatibility and general lack of suitable solutions to scale out test automation processes. Imagine tens of thousands of automated test cases, which are required to be run for a product to be fully tested.
    During this talk Dmitry will answer the following questions:
    – How do you run your automated tests in a shortest time frame possible?
    – How do you know if your functional test coverage is improving?
    – How do you select and run the most appropriate test cases?
    – How do you get actionable insight from your testing process results?
    – How do you know if it is safe to release software package to production?
    This presentation will guide you though a journey of building and improving test automation pipeline based on Jenkins in a large telco organisation with hundreds of thousands test executions performed on daily basis. By looking at this example it would possible to see what tools are missing at the market currently and where test automation industry should focus efforts next. The talk will outline examples of micro services developed to fill the functional gaps. This experience would be beneficial and applicable in your next large-scale CD project.

  • Daniel Houston from Accenture will give a talk “Building DevOps pipelines for scale: Supporting infrastructure for 1000’s of build pipelines with 4 developers”
    Everyone talks about how the want to adopt DevOps practices for building their code, but time and time again I hear “We don’t have the resources” or “We tried it and the developers found it more effort than use.”
    We’ll talk about how providing your own IaC platforms using Docker, Jenkins and Ansible can help the amount of projects your DevOps engineers can support scale nearly indefinitely; how it helps to educate your developers and how we went from some teams not even using CI, to it only taking a matter of hours to produce releasable binaries.
