The era of management is coming to an end—we work on complex systems which are developed by intellectual people, and in such an environment leadership becomes the only effective management model. But how to become a person who people will follow? How to continue to bear significant responsibility when, ultimately, the only working tool available is the power of personality? And how to boost this power so that it’s clear for everyone that you are the person who can lead to success? And what does Agile have to do with that?

Alexey Natekin
Founder, Firekeeper @ DM Labs, Open Data Science

Many have heard about the impressive successes of Machine Learning and Data Science: while some technologies alter entire industries, others long ago unnoticeably became part of our lives.

However, here's the mishap: excessive attention of press and marketers to the success of common scientists and engineers has created so much information noise, that it became difficult understand what is what.

In this lecture, we will figure out what Machine Learning and Data Science are in general; learn how to ‘cook and eat’ them; and most importantly - what to do to join this feast of life and technology.

Information Security Architect @ Percona

In this talk we will cover what is an attack surface and what you can do to limit it.

  • Acronym hell what does all these acronyms associated with security products mean and what do they mean?
  • Vulnerability media naming stupidity or driving the message home ?
  • Detection or Prevention avoiding the boy who cried wolf.
  • Emerging technologies to keep an eye on or even implement yourself to help improve your security posture.
  • 2014 -> 2017 what's been going on, why have there been so many compromises ?

The truth about implementation of projects documenting and the documents you do not actually need.

You'll learn what means to use, how to help developers formulate their thoughts and to protect the project from the torturous search for the truth a couple of months after the release.

Is there always-up-to-date working documentation on Internet projects? Let's sort it out.

    Who the analysts are, what they are doing and why they are needed in the process of developing IT systems. I will tell you:

    - the difference between business analysis and system analysis,

    - the difference between use-cases of the system and business functions;

    - how to link business functions, usage scenarios, interface structures, and data classes into a single model;

    - how to use the obtained model of requirements to develop test scenarios;

    - how to link the steps of the test script with the requirements to understand what needs to be re-tested when the requirements change.

    Based on examples from real projects.

    Most web projects have long outgrown the level of monolithic applications and broke into the world of microservices. It's no secret that many developers choose containerization as one of the ways to deploy infrastructure. In my speech I will tell you why we chose Kubernetes, what difficulties we faced and wat solutions we found. Also, speaking in the context of Docker cluster I'll discuss the main points that web developers encounter, and will also address the issue of using the developer-environment based on Docker-containers.

    Maksim Milyutin
    Programmer @ Postgres Professional

    Foreign Data Wrapper implementation enables sub-querying remote data sources within the current query. Combined with sharding (using pg_pathman, in particular) this engine allows a distributed store of large tables mostly for hard-case analytic queries.

    As part of the master class, this report will demonstrate such a way of a horizontal partition of data in a database, and compare it with the sharding solutions available in PostgreSQL.

    Let us talk about how source code security analysis for Android applications should be

    conducted. We are going to identify the most common mistakes—OWASP Mobile Top 10—and

    review Android-specific examples.

    The report discusses the methodology and major steps in source code security analysis for

    Android applications. It tells about what a Threat Model is, and how it can be built in practice.

    Application architecture analysis issues in terms of security will be also addressed. The report

    will cover hands-on experience of using static source code analyzers to find defects that impact

    application security. The most frequent mistakes according to OWASP Mobile Top 10 will be

    reviewed with examples from experience.

    Practicing DevOps is not only necessary, but also boring, so I'll try to be a visionary, despite having Cassandra complex. Before my eyes, the world has changed several times, and each time not everyone got into the brave new world. Is DevOps engineer position safe enough to remain a well-paid specialist at the next change? How and where will the world change next time? Will the Docker survive, or the ‘blue whale’ on the logo will inevitably lead to a suicide? As always, a bit of shock content: why Jenkins is still in the trend, and why Java is not as bad as it's thought of.

    Valentin Bartenev
    Core Developer @ NGINX, Inc.

    Linux core software interface is, perhaps, one of the software interfaces that are most frequently used by API-developers of server software. So, it may seem to an outside observer that such an important interface must follow the most stringent standards, meet interests of programmers and be elaborated down to the last detail.

    However, this is far from it, as my personal experience shows. In my report, I will tell you in detail about what defects I used to face, and what capabilities Linux API is strongly lacking, to make nginx our other developments even better and faster. I will draw parallels between how those issues are being resolved in other unix-like operating systems.

    I do hope that my report will be useful not only for those who deal with Linux core directly, but also for a wider audience, as vivid negative example of how software interfaces still should not be designed.

    During the report we will:

    - find out why you need to change;

    - analyze the problems of choosing ideas and directions for innovation;

    - learn to determine the leaders of changes in the team.

    We will consider practical experience of dealing with changes within the company, we will find answers to these and other questions of a business head.

    • TL; DR

    Any large company at the implementation of a web-project should in some way integrate it with internal accounting systems. Each integration of this kind implies tight interaction between a contractor for the development of the client side with customer IM IT and contains a lot of non-obvious risks. In the report we will cover the following poins:

    - Work at large integration projects. Where to start and how to finish;

    - Technical documentation on the project: what, who and when;

    - Problems of web services, methods of response and ways to eliminate them.

    - Project infrastructure: typical layout of system components.

    1. How bad it was: complete absence of backend-frontend protocol, lack of auto-documentation, and many different parts of the system that had to be maintained separately.

    2. The choice of the ‘point of truth’ – backend.

    3. Backend uses PHP, and therefore, it is necessary to teach it the strict typing of entities - all that endpoints return should be entities expressed in the form of a class in PHP with typification in the form of annotations to the fields.

    4. Static class analysis and generation of raml descriptions

    5. Generation of the typescript scheme by raml description to be used on the client side.

    6. To show how it's great when changing the data scheme without any respective edits on the client side breaks the compilation.

      We will not talk with you about the processes and tools of flexible approaches, but about what lies behind these processes and tools. I would like to bring you the understanding of their philosophy and values. After all, to successfully use flexible approaches it is not enough just to mechanically apply the methodologies, it is important to think differently.

      We'll consider:

      · Problems in software development;

      · Why do we need Agile, and what benefits will we get?

      · Values and principles of Agile;

      · The values and principles of Scrum;

      · Team Motivation Problems;

      · Influence of the Leader on the team.
