Baruch Sadogursky, Head of DevOps Advocacy @ JFrog
"Influencing DevOps without Authority - how to "DevOps engineer"

You know about DevOps, you know DevOps is right for your organization, but hey, what can you do? As an individual contributor or a team leader, your authority to transform your organization to DevOps is limited. But your influence is not!

We'll look at the arguments, the techniques, the small tricks to prepare you to deliver the message of DevOps most convincingly.

"Influence without Authority", "Getting to Yes", "Getting past No" and others applied to IT organizations with DevOps message.

Baruch Sadogursky (a.k.a JBaruch) is the Head of DevOps Advocacy and a Developer Advocate at JFrog. His passion is speaking about technology. Well, speaking in general, but doing it about technology makes him look smart, and 19 years of hi-tech experience sure helps. When he’s not on stage (or on a plane to get there), he learns about technology, people and how they work, or more precisely, don’t work together. 

He is a co-author of the Liquid Software book, a CNCF ambassador and a passionate conference speaker on DevOps, DevSecOps, digital transformation, containers and cloud-native, artefact management and other topics, and is a regular at the industry’s most prestigious events including KubeCon, DockerCon, Devoxx, DevOps Days, OSCON, Qcon, JavaOne and many others.

Tom Limoncelli, Author, DevOps Advocate and Manager @ Stack Overflow
"Low Context DevOps: A new way of improving SRE team culture"

Tom will introduce the new concept of "low-context DevOps culture": a framework for improving team culture to optimize onboarding, remote work, and project sustainability.

"Low and high context cultures" is an anthropological concept, which he leveraged to create a framework for creating more effective SRE culture.

A high-context DevOps culture is one where most knowledge is unspoken, which can be very frustrating for new employees and a disaster in a "remote only"/COVID-19 team.

A low-context DevOps culture is one where the info you need to do your job is available, visible, and accessible. Creating a low-context culture improves remote teamwork, new-hire onboarding, enables project hopping, and helps you better handle a page you receive at 2am.

Tom manages the SRE team at Stack Overflow in New York City. He is an internationally recognized author, speaker, system administrator and DevOps advocate. His latest book, the 3rd edition of The Practice of System and Network Administration, launched in 2016. He is also known for The Practice of Cloud System Administration, and Time Management for System Administrators (O'Reilly). In 2005 he received the Usenix LISA Outstanding Achievement Award. Previously he's worked Google, Bell Labs / Lucent, AT&T and others.

Nitzan Shapira, CEO & Cofounder @ Epsagon
"The Scale Effect: Visualizing Billions of Microservices"

Modern, distributed applications are often seen as a graph of nodes and edges, each node representing a container, a function, or an API service. At scale, with thousands of small microservices, visualization becomes critical to understand performance, flow, and the health of our applications. In this session, we go over the pillars of observability, deep dive into distributed tracing, and cover the tools and the frameworks that will help you accomplish that.

Nitzan is the CEO and a co-founder of Epsagon. He is a software engineer with 15 years of experience in software development, management, and cybersecurity from the Israeli Intelligence unit. He also enjoys playing the piano and is a travelling enthusiast, an experienced chess player, and is addicted to sports.
