Olaf Molenveld ( Running complex and critical service based architectures with power and ease

CD, (Docker)container and microservices interest has exploded the last year. Still there is a lot of focus on products and not so much on processes. But to achieve the holy grail of continuous innovation and improvement having the right automation workflows and integrations in place are essential. Vamp ( is an open source solution that provides integration with container schedulers and programmable routing and provides automation and optimisation workflows to deliver valuable features like canary-releasing and micro scaling. In this talk we’re going to describe what is needed to make the most out of microservices and containers and how to use Vamp to deliver anti-fragile workflows on top of common container schedulers like DC/OS, Rancher and Kubernetes.

Manuela Rink (Microsoft): Azure Functions - Get rid of your servers, use functions! 

Not so long ago we had our own servers in the basement for our backend systems. With the birth of various cloud providers like Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services our own iron soon was gone and we started to host our systems on virtual servers in big datacenters around the world. By doing this we cut down maintenance time and gained freedom for a (nearly) free choice of hosting worldwide. We transferred our systems on a physical level. Now we are able to take this process a step further and cut down our systems on a functional level: by hosting logic in... functions!

This talk gives a first insight und oversight of Azure Functions - how they work, what you can do with them and how your system can benefit from a „slim down your system“ idea like this.
