18:50 Intro: Microservices group Zurich and the CNCF

19:00 Talk:"Cloud-based testing"

Speaker: Sebastiano Panichella, PhD @Zurich University of Applied Science (ZHAW)

To promote and sustain the future of our society, the most critical challenge of contemporary software engineering and cloud computing experts are related to the efficient integration of emerging cloudification and DevOps practices in the development and testing processes of modern systems.
In this context, we argue that Search-based Software testing (SBST) can play a critical role in improving testing practices and automating the verification and validation (V&V) of cloudification properties of Cloud Native Applications (CNA). We, we focus on the untouched side of SBST in the cloud field, by discussing (1) the testing challenges in the cloud research field and (2) summarizing the recent contributions of SBST in supporting development practices of CNA. Then, we discuss the emerging research topics characterizing the cloudification perspectives of SBST in the cloud field. Finally, we provide evidence on how
SBST can used to improve testing practices in the context of cloud-native applications.

19:30 Talk: ""
Speaker: Rolf Schaerer, @Cisco,

20:00 Talk: "Cloud Native Patterns"

Speaker: Michael Mueller, Managing Director (DACH) @Container Solutions, @michmueller_

In this talk, we’ll look at some specific Cloud Native patterns, ranging from the technical to the organisational, and how they were successfully combined in the real world. We’ll find out about executive commitment and its relation to build automation. We’ll discover how modular architecture and experimental thinking combine to let companies go fast without breaking everything. Finally, we’ll look at some common combinations and how to begin to experiment towards them.

Followed by General Q/A, Closing remarks
Followed by Beers and Pizza
