How to future-proof cloud applications

David Linthicum

Chances are, you’re either building a net-new application in the cloud or using native technology such as serverless or machine learning. Or, you’re porting an application to the cloud, either refactoring it to leverage native services, or lifting and shifting with little or no modification to the code or data. How do you ensure these applications last more than a few years on the cloud? In other words, how do you future-proof them? I have a few core recommendations.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

The secret sauce: it’s not the app it’s the service

I'm not lost, I'm wondering

What do I mean when I say the totality? A service isn’t just the user perspective (how a service is experienced). It’s also the organisational perspective (how a service is delivered). Not one, or the other. Without this totality the service will always be lacking.
