I'm Attending!March 27, 2018March 28, 2018#PerfMatters ConferenceUTC## TL;DR
_#PerfMatters_ Conference is a single-track web performance conference in Redwood City, California with talks by internationally renowned performance developers, taking place March 27 & 28, 2017. Our focus is on front-end web performance.
## Longer Version
_#PerfMatters_ is the Web Performance Conference taking place in Redwood City, CA March 27 & 28, 2018. The venue is located half way between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, accessible via the San Francisco (SFO) and San Jose (SJC) airports (The venue is actually equidistant from SFO, SJC, and the Oakland International Airport, but that's a little bit more of a hassle).
Our audience is made up primarily of engineering students, software engineers, web developers, performance engineers, technical managers and CTOs. Part of the program is curated, with most slots being filled by this Call for Presentations. We don't want a sales pitch. We are looking for people passionate about performance who are able to speak effectively and from experience, and who understand our audience of developers. This is a single and a half track conference, meaning there is a single track, with a second much smaller room available for tutorials, un-conference talks, and anything else a speaker, attendee or sponsor might suggest. Being a single track conference, we are more flexible with talk lengths.
## Be relevant to web performance
Indicate how your talk is directly relevant to our audience for an improved likelihood of acceptance.San Francisco / Silicon Valley, CA

In the past few years, security integration within the DevOps pipeline has given rise to the idea of DevSecOps. Once seen as the bottleneck and inhibitor of the development and deployment process, security has become an integral part of the movement towards automation and the removal of manual oversight enforcement. As stated in the DevSecOps Manifesto, "We must adapt our ways to ensure data security and privacy issues are not left behind because we were too slow to change."
There are practitioners in the field who are pushing forward with the idea of creating a secure application development pipeline, with security integrated from conception through deployment. In this year's DevOps Connect: DevSecOps Day at RSA Conference 2018, you'll hear stories from those practitioners, explaining how they made the cultural transformation from legacy development and deployment processes to integrated systems that include security as a part of the process, not as an overseer or bottleneck to secure application development.
This series of first person talks will give you a perspective on how you and your team can enable faster application development with more rapid deployment to production, while integrating security into your DevOps initiatives.
We have a strict "No vendor pitches" policy. We are looking for practitioners who can tell their story and help others see the path ahead. If you are a vendor, consultant or company who sells services or products, encourage your clients to tell their story.
How Submissions are Evaluated
We are looking for practitioners to discuss the unique challenges of adopting security into the DevOps pipeline, the obstacles to security being a contributing and valued partner in DevOps and the ways to overcome them. Specific topics we are looking for include, but are not restricted to:
* How did you get senior management buy-in? What did you do? How did you quantify the business value?
* Examples of security teams being integrated into the CI/CD or DevOps process
* How did you overcome objections inside the organization?
* How did you design and implement effective controls to mitigate security risks?
* Which business area (and application) did you start with, why, and what did you do?
* What were the top challenges, and how did you overcome them?
* What were your top mistakes, and what advice would you give as a result?
* In-progress stories (and even nightmares) are welcome!
* Speaking slots are 20 minutes.
* Attendees must be able to use the bulk of the presentation's lessons without buying or using a particular tool or service.
* While we love consultants and vendors (they're some of our favorite people!), we are looking for stories from the organizations adopting these practices.
Each submission should end by communicating the core value in your message: how did you get security integrated into your DevOps initiative and what value did it provide to your project.

I'm Attending!April 21, 2018April 21, 2018Global Azure Bootcamp - Medellin 2018UTC# Bienvenido al Global Azure Bootcamp!
En Abril de 2013 se organizó el primer **Global Azure Bootcamp** en más de 134 localizaciones alrededor del globo, desde el primer Azure Bootcamp en Medellín, Colombia nos reunimos cerca de 200 profesionales de IT junto con los máximos expertos del país sobre la nube de Microsoft. Las siguientes ediciones no hicieron más que incrementar estas cifras de récord realizándose el evento simultáneo en 183 localizaciones en 29 países de todo el mundo. El Azure Bootcamp se ha consolidado como el mayor evento de la comunidad Azure en Colombia y a nivel mundial.
Este año queremos repetir en Medellín una de las sedes en las que se ofrecerá en un mismo día sesiones para profundizar en el uso de la plataforma **Microsoft Azure**, así como charlas con los expertos. Además de esta gran oportunidad de aprendizaje, los asistentes podrán participar en varios hands-on labs "globales", formando parte de una granja de cómputo mundial.
Una de las características principales del Global Azure Bootcamp ha sido la realización de un hands-on lab a escala global. En ediciones anteriores se han implementado labs de animación y render 3D así como el procesamiento de conjuntos de datos genéticos para ayudar a entender y curar la diabetes o el cáncer de mama. En la última edición no fue posible encontrar un algoritmo que cumpliera con los requerimientos para este tipo de procesamiento masivo, pero...¡Este año hemos trabajado duramente para que esto no volviera a pasar, y ya tenemos lab científico!
Más información en:
Para la edición de este Bootcamp se va a continuar con la misma idea del año anterior con dos hands-on labs:
- GAB Science Lab - un lab de investigación centrado en la investigación del algoritmo desarrollado por Sebastián Hidalgo del Instituto Astrofísico de Canarias.
- GAB Racing Lab - un lab de gaming introduciendo un juego de conducción en 3D con los servicios de back-end alojados en Azure. Este año tendremos algunas novedades con un lab más evolucionado que el año anterior.
Nuestra intención es que los asistentes puedan usar este evento para aprender cómo desplegar aplicaciones en Azure y saber cómo funciona la computación distribuida, a la vez que ayudamos a solucionar algunos problemas en el mundo pasando un día inolvidable.Medellin, Colombia
