Intro Level Sessions:

Hybrid Cloud, Containers and Kubernetes   (Target Audience:  IT, Developers, Managers, great backgrounder for all.)
Containers and Kubernetes are just two of all the prevailing buzzwords these days. Depending on who and when you ask what a container is you may get a different explanation each time you ask.  This is sophisticated technology but when explained by an expert becomes understandable opening a welcome innovation path for any IT organization.  
Automation and the Art of the Possible   (Target Audience:  IT Operations Staff and Management, Business Managers)
If you like doing the same thing, manually, day in and day out this session is not for you.  Automation frees up your time to do more interesting things while simultaneously reducing costs and increasing reliability.  During this session we will explore proven techniques and practices for automation that can be used throughout the enterprise. This includes Infrastructure, VMs, Networking, DNS, etc.

Deeper Dive Sessions:

Ansible Automation (Target Audience:  Technical Leads and Support personnel responsible for domains listed below.)
A survey of the many domains (Infrastructure, Networking, Cloud, Security, etc.) that can be automated. This session will cover code examples, best practices, scaling consideration and more.
Containers - Advanced Topics (Target Audience:  Application Developers, Operations Manager and Cloud Architects)
The rate of innovation with Containers and where they can run is evolving rapidly.  Enterprises now have unprecedented flexibility where they can run their container workloads: Bare Metal, VM, Private Cloud or one of the Public Clouds. Options on where you store your containers (Registries), Operators. Management, and Security considerations will also be discussed.
JBoss Middleware and OpenShift (Target Audience:  Application Architects, Developers, Development Managers)
  • Kick off presentation with a demo of the Decision Manager on OCP project
Container technology looks promising, but your Apps probably need some modification unless you're lucky enough to be in a greenfield situation.  This session explores the journey of moving monolithic applications to microservices architectures. This transition effects many teams (Dev, QA Test, and Operations) but is essential for the organization becoming more agile.
