Applying Domain-Driven Design to APIs and Microservices
How do I design a reusable API that meets developer and customer needs? How do I know that I have the right-sized microservices with the proper boundaries? Teams are excited about the prospects of building solutions with APIs and microservices. However, without a proper architectural view and design process the result is often a release of less-than-ideal API and microservice design that meets immediate needs but requires a complete redesign.

This talk will demonstrate how systems design and domain-driven design can be used to create clear, well-designed, long-lasting APIs and microservices. Applying these principles will result in a cleaner API design, help identify API product and microservice boundaries, and identify new API product opportunities.

OPEN TALK: Integration and Digital Experiences - What We’ve Learned So Far
The technology landscape has evolved at a breakneck pace. When we used to discuss software integration, it largely revolved around just a few dominant players in the marketplace. However, the major shifts happening around areas like cloud and mobile have produced a much more crowded space. At the same time, the focus and desired output of bringing technologies together has also shifted considerably. As technology seeps further into everyday life, digital experience has emerged as a critical consideration. As a result, we must re-think integration with experience as the starting point. In this talk, Lars will present on the major industry shifts impacting developers, as well as the integration insights that have emerged from that. He will also discuss how Adobe is leveraging these insights across it’s Marketing Cloud, Creative Cloud and Document Cloud solutions.

OPEN TALK: Using Spark with Shiny and R Markdown
R is well-suited to handle data that can fit in memory but additional tools are needed when the amount of data you want to analyze in R grows beyond the limits of your machine’s RAM. There have been a variety of solutions to this problem over the years that aim to solve this problem in R; one of the latest options is Apache Spark™. Spark is a cluster computing tool that enables analysis of massive, distributed data across dozens or hundreds of servers. 

RStudio recently announced a new open-source package called sparklyr that facilitates a connection between R and Spark using a full-fledged dplyr backend with support for the entirety of Spark's MLlib library. Due to Spark’s ability to interact with distributed data with little latency, it is becoming an attractive tool for interfacing with large datasets in an interactive environment. In addition to handling the storage of data, Spark also incorporates a variety of other tools including stream processing, computing on graphs, and a distributed machine learning framework. Some of these tools are available to R programmers via the sparklyr package. 

In this talk, we’ll discuss how to leverage Spark’s capabilities in a modern R environment. In particular, we’ll discuss how to use Spark within an R Markdown document or even in an interactive Shiny application. We’ll also briefly discuss alternative approaches to working with large data in R and the pros and cons of using Spark.

Search as a NoSQL Database

Projects like Apache Solr have long been known as a traditional search engine operating on top of relational databases and frameworks like Hadoop, but in recent years Solr’s role as a standalone NoSQL store has been taking off. For organizations serving up hundreds of millions – sometimes billions – of requests per day, the scalability and stability of Solr is increasingly attractive for not only the retrieval but also the storage of data in high volumes.

In this session, Will Hayes will share how businesses across industries – from large publishers to major cloud providers to financial institutions – are turning to search as a primary data store, along with best practices that organizations looking to make the transition can employ today. Hayes will examine projects like Apache Solr and its evolution from a simple knowledge base to a comprehensive data service, as well as the advantages of treating it as such.

OPEN TALK: Yelp's Move from a Monolith to Microservices
At Yelp we value our ability to quickly ship code. One key factor in scaling our engineering process to over three hundred engineers and several million lines of Python has been our move to a microservices architecture; over the course of the past five years we've gone from zero to over one hundred production microservices.

In this presentation I'll discuss the technical and organizational changes that made this change possible. I'll start by covering what a typical monolith to microservice migration might look like, and how to use different types of education to increase the microservice adoption rate. I'll then discuss the role of standardization in a microservice architecture. I'll also cover microservice ownership and its interplay with operational responsibilities.

Harnessing IoT Through Analytics at the Edge
The massive growth of IoT infrastructures and the edge devices that comprise them has made it inefficient - and in some instances, flat out illogical - to transport all data back to a centralized core for analysis. Successful analytics initiatives in the modern IoT world will thus be those that apply predictive models and run analytics at the edge - directly at the source of data. This not only eliminates the time, effort and expense required to transport data, but it allows for immediate action to be taken in response to insights. In this in-depth session, Shawn Rogers, chief researcher officer for Dell Statistica, and John K. Thompson, general manager, Dell Statistica, will discuss the benefits of, challenges associated with, and primary use cases for modern edge analytics. Attendees will learn the value of edge analytics and how to implement it within their organization.

How Artificial Intelligence Is Transforming Commerce

How Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Commerce

We’re on the verge of a new AI frontier. By combining distributed computing power with multiple disciplines of AI like deep learning and evolutionary computation, we can get new insights and discover previously unseen patterns from massive datasets companies have already been collecting for years. This sort of intelligence can do everything from optimizing retailer sales funnels to helping shoppers find that perfect pair of shoes. This session discusses the significant progress being made in both the areas of visual intelligence–where we can extract meaning from image data to understand in-the-moment buyer intent–and evolutionary computation–where we can use machine learning algorithms that mimic Darwinian evolution to hone and optimize any part of a site, from the home page to the check-out page. Or, in other words, how AI will transform retail forever.

OPEN TALK: Negotiating an API - Crafting Endpoints so Developers Still like Each Other.

Endpoint design is an art. It’s the interface to your service, your gate to the world. A service is only as good as its API lets it be.

From-scratch API design has its own challenges. You’re creating a language that will be used by people who may not even know about you yet! A good early API design is consistent, yet flexible. We’ll go over the steps to make that happen. What are the best techniques you can use when designing any API?

Now you’ve got users. But, in an iterative world, nothing stays the same for long. You’re going to have to make some changes, and you want your API consumers on board. How are you going to get them to come along? Ask for their feedback! We’ll talk about all the techniques to solicit valuable feedback on API usage, from usage analysis to in-person meetings.

Finally, you have your implementation. We’ll go over documentation, versioning, and change techniques. All of it is done with the relationship with the client in mind, so you can both get the most out of your API.

Extend Security of Hadoop Environments
Companies today have more vital information than ever, while data breaches are growing in pace and magnitude. It’s critical for companies to implement security solutions that control and audit everyone who accesses big data systems, not only because hackers are getting more sophisticated, but because the amount of data that’s at risk is increasing constantly. 

This session will focus on steps that organizations must take to secure and speed big data deployments. The global Hadoop market, powered by the rise in demand for big data analytics, is forecast to grow from $2 billion in 2013 to a staggering $50.2 billion by 2020, according to Allied Market Research.

However, security concerns related to Hadoop adoption threaten to slow the growth of big data technology. Hadoop clusters often contain sensitive personally identifiable information (PII) and other highly regulated data, so auditing and controlling user and administrator access to Hadoop and its underlying server infrastructure is critical to address both security and compliance requirements for regulations such as SOX, PCI and HIPAA. 

David will discuss how organizations can leverage existing Active Directory infrastructures to control access, manage privilege, address auditing requirements, and secure machine-to-machine communication with and across Hadoop clusters, nodes and services.

How to Shrink from 5 Tiers to 2 in a Multitier Microservices Architecture

A typical microservices architecture has five tiers:

  • You need a web proxy like NGINX to handle slow clients and to serve static files
  • You need an application web server like Apache or Django to run your application logic
  • You need a caching layer like Memcached or Redis to cache frequently accessed data
  • You need a database proxy to handle sharding and replication, abstracting that stuff away from the application
  • You need a database management system to store your data

Five tiers – isn't it too many? Yeah, that's what we think too. So we've come up with an idea to shrink the whole bunch of tiers down to just a couple. The web proxy and database proxy are combined into one tier, now just a proxy. The application server, the cache, and the DBMS are packed into the other tier. Fewer tiers mean less problems and more bonuses like data consistency and better performance. In this session, I'll explain how to do this magic and how it works under the hood.

Putting political divisions aside, we can all agree that timely access to relevant information could help voters to be properly informed when it comes time to vote. That’s why CNN and CA Technologies partnered with the goal of creating a mobile app that would keep voters educated and engaged throughout the election cycle. To achieve this, we needed to design an application architecture that could empower editors to publish news as it happens and enhance it with key statistics and multimedia content.

APIs are evolving from flat representations of systems data to multi-layered systems that are accessed both internally and externally. Microservices, as they strangle monoliths out of existence, are propogating APIs deeper and deeper into your systems, creating a many-layered series of service APIs. Internal vs. external access, traceability, security and performance become critical considerations as your entire application becomes a series of service APIs.

Launch: The Network Is the Computer - How Always-on Apps Are Driving Microservices to the Edge

Sun Microsystems coined the phrase “The Network is the Computer” in the 1990s, though it was more aspirational than reality. But today, the explosive demand for realtime software and always-on experiences is forcing the network to get smarter. The new trend in “Serverless Infrastructure” is gaining steam, but doesn’t always help delivering scalable realtime experiences. To truly meet the needs of realtime, always-on apps, serverless platforms must evolve from the cloud to the network. This presentation will explore:


  • Categories of realtime software and always-on use cases that need a distributed infrastructure to scale.

  • Embedding application logic into a programmable network.

  • The software design patterns that will emerge to leverage smarter networks.

  • The security considerations of data streams and programmable networks.

OPEN TALK: Building Trust with a Background Check API
Background checks are often misunderstood and considered complex. Accurate Background set out to change that perception and saw a need to create a simple, RESTful API in an industry that has historically relied on archaic system integrations. With the surge of the “sharing” or “on-demand” economy, largely built on trust between the app and the consumer, companies required the ability to connect to background checks more easily and faster than ever. Whether it is an organization focused on hiring or the sharing economy, companies rely heavily on building trust between their brand and their customer. Background checks aid in that effort to mitigate risk. 

In this session, attendees will learn how we went about building the API, the use cases we had in mind, and the technology we chose to leverage to make ordering background checks and retrieving results easier than ever. Along the way we will talk about how we tested for scalability, thought through the developer experience, and ensured we had a product that simplified background screening for a variety of industries and purposes.

The Largest Family History Database, DNA, and Machine Learning

Platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn use social graphs to help us find personal connections - however, at Ancestry, we’re able to build a family history graph that reveals the complicated connections between billions of people, locations around the world, and tens of thousands of historical events. 

Through the power of machine learning, Ancestry, the world’s largest family history and consumer DNA database, is creating its Big Tree, a knowledge graph that stitches together 10 petabytes of structured and unstructured data from 18  billion records, more than 80 million family trees and eight billion people into one Big Tree. Utilizing the scalability of  cloud computing, artificial intelligence, big data technology, AI based Search technology, and distributed stitching engines, the Big Tree is updated in real time - at a rate of 400 changes per second and 35 million changes a day - as users input data or make edits, becoming more powerful and unearthing new knowledge of familial connections with every update. 

In this session, Ancestry will present an informative explanation of how the company is leveraging big data and machine learning capabilities to stitch together the largest family history graph, and how it will impact and reveal the organic relationships between people, locations and events, which could prove a powerful force for greater empathy and understanding as we understand how we relate to the rest of humanity.

OPEN TALK: Surviving as a Monolith in a Microservices World
Today’s application architects are striving for the panacea that is a microservice architecture. However, it’s not like you can come into the office on a Monday morning, turn on the lights, and magically turn your current solution into a microservice architecture by the time you turn off the lights. So, what do you do if your organization is heavily invested in an SOA or monolithic architecture? In this talk, Head Software Architect, Blair Olynyk, will explain how Hyperwallet is preparing for microservice by remaining agile, using a strong set of processes, and the fundamentals of loose coupling.

PANEL - Integrating API Management Into Your Business Strategy

Whether it’s requesting rides, finding a rental for your next vacation, or improving public transportation, today’s app economy is transforming the business landscape. It creates an environment for exponential success for those who know how to harness the power of their data, content, and/or logic to derive revenue. Open, scalable, and managed Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are the key ingredient for that to happen. Driven by the explosion of consumer devices, APIs are now powering much of what we do on the web, via mobile devices, and are driving the rise of the Internet of Things. 

During this panel discussion you’ll hear from organizations who took the step of publishing open, scalable, and managed APIs to their own engineering departments, external partners or customers, and developer-friendly channels, enabling a "popularization" of services in the areas and exposing themselves to unlimited opportunities to derive new revenue, reach new audiences, or/and realize greater innovation.

These organizations will share how APIs are reinventing the way they do business. Some key points that will be discussed include:

  • When APIs expose powerful data from legacy systems it can be reused in hundreds of apps, providing virtually "free" sales and marketing for products and services.
  • How the technology is creating new markets and more of a connection with current customers, suppliers, and partners.
  • How opening (and properly managing) APIs and sharing that data with external developers, organizations will have more time to focus on their core business, while gaining promotion from external developers and their services.

OPEN TALK: The Need for a Background Check API
Background checks are often misunderstood and considered complex. In this session we will review how Accurate Background set out to change that perception and saw a need to create a simple, RESTful API in an industry that has historically relied on archaic system integrations. With the surge of the “sharing” or “on-demand” economy, largely built on trust between the app and the consumer, companies required the ability to connect to background checks more easily and faster than ever. Whether it is an organization focused on hiring or the sharing economy, companies rely heavily on building trust between their brand and their customer. Background checks aid in that effort to mitigate risk.

Lessons in API Banking from Europe & India

In late 2015, the European Union adopted the Second Payment Systems Directive (PSD2) as a regulation for all its member states with the objective of better protective consumers, promoting the development and use of innovative online and mobile payments, and making cross-border European payments services safer. India went a step further when it went live with the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) with a vision to make payments and settlements safer, more efficient, more innovative and more inclusive in a country of 1.2 billion.

These and other similar initiatives across the globe encourage the democratization of data to nurture healthy competition, foster innovation and deliver better business outcomes. This session takes a brief look at these initiatives and contemplates on the lessons the US Banking industry can learn from them.

OPEN TALK: Configuration-as-a-Service
It's about time we started taking configuration seriously. We've all done it: application configuration scatter-gunned over environment variables, varying file formats on disk, bespoke look-up database tables, and if you're stuck doing the corporate time-warp again through no fault of your own, registry entries. Gnarly enough when it's just you and your dev machine, positively Groot across your testing, staging, and distributed live environments. Deployments and ops are hard enough to get right without the extra variables surrounding your configuration thrown in the mix between deployment scripts. A lot of the time, config is too complicated to fit easily into a bunch of environment variables.

How can we make this better? We've been thinking about the concept of Configuration-as-a-Service, and how it can make your custom application configuration easy and secure. It encapsulates configuration management for your mutable business data, technical configuration settings and sensitive data such as keys & credentials. As a design pattern, it helps you architect your solution cleanly by separating configurable business logic, data and technical information from both your code, and from your infrastructure. Join us for a look at how you can use Configuration-as-a-Service to allow developers and admins to manage securely the full life-cycle of your bespoke application configuration from the cradle to the grave in highly distributed environments.

APIs being built today are getting smaller and smaller—more and more niche to the use case.

Developer Market Segmentation: Who Are Developers and What Do They Want

A common misconception is that all developers are the same, which, in fact, is not the case.  Not all developers are the same and not all of them have the same goals.  A well-designed platform knows how to cater to a broad range of developers and meet a variety of needs.  

When a platform company is not in tune with the different needs of various developer segments, the company is at risk of short changing certain audience segments and ultimately turning customers away.  Third-party developers can be priced out or underserved, while it seems like they are both using the same API.

In this session, we'll discuss lessons learned from interactions with DocuSign API developers and the DocuSign “developer experience and ecosystem journey” to help others better position themselves and create a superior developer experience for all developers.

The New API Pattern - Should Be Interesting and Controversial
The API pattern was created in the 1970's when 'distributed architectures' didn't even exist and was established mainly for 'centralized architectures' as it bound the communication data/logic to the business logic.

In a modern world, we have moved to distributed architectures where we now have to share the I/O... but that communication logic still remains bound in the application due to an old API pattern. This makes it so that the IO data and functionality related to a request/response cannot be shared with our edge services without duplication/entanglement. This in turn means the data/functionality in our services then cannot be synchronized.
 
This leads to dropped threads, poor security, bad data, bad user experience, broken application, etc.

This can ALL be fixed and improved and even lead to better speed, scalability and automation through a new API Pattern.

In this talk, we will:

- talk about abstracting the API communications from business logic to reduce duplication and improve synchronization
- talk about how this improves automation, scalability and speed
- talk about how you can implement this in your existing infrastructure

OPEN TALK: The Coming Microservices Cataclysm (And How You Can Avoid It)
"Microservices are SOA done right." You've heard this and dutifully began migrating your system to cloud, containers, and lightweight code connected through RESTful APIs to reap the scaling and reusability benefits microservices promise. But the spectre of SOA's complications - governance, discoverability and interface consistency - haunt your architecture reviews (and your dreams). In this talk, Rob Z. will show you how a little extra upfront effort and some powerful tools can help you avoid the cataclysm of a service-based infrastructure gone mad.

Make Your API Flexible, Composable and Extensible

Designing a good API is known to be a difficult task, which only becomes more challenging when it comes to creating an HTTP API. You need to take into account some additional constraints such as network efficiency and granularity.

Typically, if you want your JavaScript client to choose what data should be returned, as well as the granularity of the call, you need to have an architecture that allows you to expose your core API in a flexible and composable way. The problem becomes even more complicated if you also want to let developers contribute new services that should then be exposed as a first-class citizen through your API.

This presentation is a summary of the challenges we solved to provide an HTTP API on top of our open source platform.

In this talk, we will explain the design principles and techniques we have used to publish our core API as a REST API while maintaining extensibility and giving full power to the client over the granularity of the calls and the data.

Todays data scientists should be able to express their “analytics creativity”, narrowing down increasingly massive sets of data points to the most pertinent layer and curating the analysis to meet specific needs across an organization; the visual and verbal communication should aim to inspire the recipients and induce action. This skill is more important than ever before, as folks with varying levels of data sophistication — from bloggers to marketing specialists — becoming more data-driven in their day-to-day operations, each looking for the best way to action insights. More than ever before, data teams have to become great storytellers.

API - Lego for developers
The dream of easily reusable components is an old one in programming dating back to the emergence of object oriented programming in the 1960s. The truth is it never really worked. Not in a way that transformed programming.

Today the number of APIs available to developers has exploded. Those provide critical connective tissue and increasingly important functionality which is fundamentally changing the dynamics of how software is created and brought to market. 

However putting your API out there for the public to find and use, is not enough anymore. That act of assembling the components into a new whole though, still happens largely through exactly the kind of programming we have always done. 70% of APIs integration and usage will happen outside of IT Development, by average business users, like marketers or accountants. We must think about consumption.

Based on the experience of integrating to hundreds of APIs, this session will provide tips for optimizing APIs for the integration use case. So what are the minimum requirements for a modern API to fit into this landscape that product managers have to keep in mind? What are the tools out there that are enabling this API-glue approach?  

We are not quite there, but the future in which most people will be empowered to build software is arriving and APIs are the key enablers for this.

Running an API that has been around for 8+ years and has thousands of users teaches a lot of lessons at a very rapid pace - lessons that producers & maintainers of all APIs can benefit from. In this session, we'll be discussing:
  • Active & passive communication techniques to use with your community
  • Balancing the dance between supporting your users & doing their work for them
  • Handling the times when you have to deliver disappointing news to your consumers (e.g. denying access or removing features)
  • Ways to understand what your community wants & needs, so you can design it into your roadmap
All of these conversations are driven by real-world examples, so you'll be able to see times where things worked - and when they didn't.

APIs at the Scale of the Blockchain
Blockchain technology is best known for powering the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. However, an ecosystem is emerging around the technology that has profound impacts on devops and APIs in more than just in the financial tech world.

At its core, the blockchain is an eventually-consistant distributed and trustless architecture for recording transactions. It poses a number of challenges for API developers and architects but also provides a number of powerful solutions. This talk will give an overview of the blockchain ecosystem, its building blocks, challenges, and opportunities. Including real-world use cases and challenges for blockchain technology.

This 25 minute talk will not go deep into the math or low level specifications so it is appropriate for people even without a deep technical background. However, there will be some technical details to provide the background needed to understand the technology and give developers and architects a jumping off point.

Tomorrow’s Smart City, Unlocking the Power of Big Data

Imagine a demand-driven world where every service you can think of is at your beck-and-call. A future where you can fly to your next business meeting at the time you choose or shop for goods at home and have them delivered when you want and where you want – by a drone. Or a future where car ownership becomes inefficient and a driverless car is ready to pick you up and take you wherever you need to go. Imagine a world where hospital waiting rooms are obsolete because the ER has optimized its staff and resources and patients are also able to receive at home care with a touch of a button.

You may say we already live in that world today, powered by app-based companies where the tap of an app will get you a car on-demand in the next five minutes. But for every time you choose to use a ride-sharing service, you may not realize that in order to get that one ride, there are multiple other cars driving around aimlessly burning fuel, creating emissions, congesting traffic waiting for the next passenger. You can shop from home and choose to have something delivered next-day and in some cases same-day, but only if the supplier has the resources readily available to fulfill your request in that timeframe. Though convenient, these services are flooded with inefficiency and waste because most of these companies provide their services based on supply, not on demand. They are constrained by resources that are stretched to their limits.

But what if these constraints were eliminated?

Leveraging advanced technology to unlock data collected via autonomous vehicles, sensors and apps, and using this data to make decisions in real-time will allow our world to move from being on-demand to truly demand-driven. A world where everything happens when and where we want, but in the most efficient and convenient manner, improving sustainability and reducing waste, pollution and eliminating congestion.

Tomorrow’s demand-driven city is very much possible today.
