  • SRE demokratisieren - Aus den Google-BĂŒchern in Ihre DevOps-Teams/-Journey

    Viele Organisationen kĂ€mpfen mit dem Übergang von CI auf CD. Das von Google eingefĂŒhrte Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) scheint das neue Modell zu sein, um erfolgreich SLOs in High-Speed-Delivery-Umgebungen sicherzustellen. Allerdings fehlt den DevOps-Transformationsleitern ein praktischer Ansatz, um die SRE-Prinzipien und -Praktiken aus den BĂŒchern in ihren eigenen Kontext zu ĂŒbernehmen. In diesem Vortrag werden wir zunĂ€chst die “hidden reliability debts” aufzeigen, welche durch hohe Liefergeschwindigkeit kreiert werden und dann einen effektiven SRE-Ansatz vorstellen, der Architektur-, Technik- und Kulturmuster nutzt. Zwei Schweizer Fallstudien zeigen kurz die Praxistauglichkeit des Ansatzes.

  • DevSecOps in agile organisations: A SAFe based approach

    Swisscom is consequently following a DevSecOps approach to become more dynamic, faster, better but especially also more secure. To better integrate security into our daily work and make it a first-class citizen, we have created a new role & community model according to SAFe and implemented a security by design approach. We will show up the different aspects of our organisation and how we train our people, as well as various approaches – such as threat modelling, security reporting and risk management – which are impacting our security feature backlog and making us more secure in the end.

  • Business Process Monitoring with Anomaly Detection in Practice

    DevOps teams within Swisscom are responsible for ensuring that any issues that could affect users are quickly addressed. This quest is challenging due to the high volume of available metrics, events, and traces (~300GB daily).
    We will show how we designed and deployed an anomaly detection system based on Prophet models, PySpark, and MLflow, which analyses performance, throughput, and error metrics of important business processes. These analytics are displayed in an end-to-end monitoring tool which provides a holistic view of many distributed systems and gives actionable insights to the teams.

  • Selenium based load testing: some real progress!

    Since the mid 90′ little progress was made to overcome shortcomings of load test tools regarding measurements at Browser level. Only recently a combination of Kubernetes and Selenium enhanced by the step platform allowed us to successfully test several applications. This breakthrough increases the quality of our measurements, enables new shift left options, reduces scripting time and allows us to test previously “untestable” Browser based applications.

  • Der digitale Blindenhund – Navigation mittels AI

    Hast du schon mal einen Blinden an einem leeren Perron beobachtet, wie er eine ZugstĂŒre und ihren TĂŒrknopf findet? Die neue Kunden-App der SBB «SBB Inclusive» unterstĂŒtzt Reisende mit SeheinschrĂ€nkung auf ihrer Reise. Im Rahmen eines Proof of Concepts fĂŒr dieses wichtige Feature wurde gezeigt, wie eine App den Blindenhund bei der Navigation auf dem Perron ersetzen kann. Dabei kommen zahlreiche moderne AnsĂ€tze aus dem Bereich der kĂŒnstlichen Intelligenz zum Einsatz: Object Detection (ML), Object Tracking sowie DistanzMessung mittels mehreren Kameras. Ausserdem erfĂ€hrst du, wie die Corona-Zeit positiv fĂŒr das Sammeln und Labeln von Daten genutzt werden kann.

  • Interactive Visual Testing - Challenges and how to solve them

    Combining the benefits of functional testing and visual testing, interactive visual testing provides the simplest way to automate your testing: images & texts. This makes sure that your software works and looks as expected, all within the same test.
    With simplicity comes challenges. Let us show you pitfalls that we fell into, like dropdowns that do not drop drown, values in scrollable tables or grids, texts that just cannot be recognized, loading animations, dynamic pages, …
    You get a glance into the possibilities of interactive visual testing, but mostly we will focus on the challenges.

  • Why Scaled Agile (Testing) doesn't work

    Den agilen Modellen ist gemein, dass Testing wenn ĂŒberhaupt nur am Rande erwĂ€hnt wird. Der Fokus liegt auf den Entwicklern und dem Built-in Quality Ansatz. Dabei wird aber von einer hohen MaturitĂ€t und einer schon fast idealen Welt ausgegangen. Die RealitĂ€t sieht leider oft nicht ganz so rosig aus. In SAFe stellt insbesondere das End-to-End Testing von ĂŒbergreifenden Features eine grosse Herausforderung dar. In diesem Vortrag werden daher Good Practices fĂŒr das Testing in skalierten agilen Vorhaben hergeleitet.

  • How to Make Software Testing Human Centered (for real)

    What’s more human-centered in software development and testing than bringing real users into the process? First, we’ll show what IT teams need to know to select testers (what to look for and how many testers), how you can distribute your unfinished product to your testers, how to guide them and correct them. Finally, how to track the bugs they find and how to use the results.
    For better results, sometimes crowdtesting needs to be incorporated or substituted with other methods. We’ll see a few practical examples of how to choose.
    In the last part we’ll see how crowd sourced testing fits.

  • DevOps Anecdotes

    DevOps is much more than just a collection of tools. It is predominantly about people and cultural change. Changing culture and mindset is extremely difficult though. In this talk we will look beyond the Tech industry to seek understanding on how other industries adapted to an ever-changing world that requires fast time to market. We will hear anecdotes from the film industry, sport industry, the military and many more. These findings will be translated into DevOps challenges we face today, and we will hear how to tackle them. After this talk, Tech leaders will be equipped with some deep insights into what a successful DevOps culture looks like and how it can be created throughout all levels of an organisation.

  • Testen hoch 10 - FĂŒr den Bahnverkehr der Zukunft

    Heute werden die Zugbewegungen auf dem SBB-Netz manuell in den Betriebszentralen gesteuert. Dies wird in bestimmten Gebieten durch eine automatische Optimierung ersetzt. Herausforderungen sind, dass die Optimierungsregeln unscharf sind, dass bei jeder Optimierung eine komplett neue Situation vorliegt und dass trotz mehreren Tausend Optimierungsvarianten jede 5 Sekunden ein optimales Ergebnis gefunden werden soll. Wir zeigen, wie man eine solche Optimierung komplexer Situationen basierend auf unvollstÀndigen Regeln im Real-Time-Umfeld testen kann.

  • Not Fair! Testing AI Bias and Organizational Values

    Just because a machine learning system is biased doesn’t mean that it isn’t useful. If the bias reflects our goals as an organization, then it may not matter that the result is suboptimal.
    Fairness means that we want to make sure we consider the needs of all stakeholders, and balance those needs against goals. To do so, we require a clear statement of those goals, and the ability to objectively test them against results.
    This presentation posits fairness as a goal in developing machine learning systems, and describes how to make that goal objective in order to set up and execute a testing plan.

  • Ökonomische und Sozialer Tausch – wie begleichen wir unsere Sozialen Schulden?

    Im Zeitalter von flÀchendeckendem Homeoffice korrodiert der soziale Kitt der Unternehmen. Das langjÀhrige gegenseitige Vertrauen unter den LeistungstrÀgern beginnt mehr und mehr Schaden zu nehmen. Kreative und Innovative Prozesse werden zÀh und schwierig.

    Wenn Unternehmen in diesen Zeiten mehr Engagement und zusĂ€tzlichen Einsatz einfordern, nimmt es «Soziale Schulden» auf. Diesen Mehrleistungen gilt es adĂ€quat Rechnung zu tragen, ansonsten quilt die Kiste «sozialer Schuldscheine» leicht ĂŒber. Sollten sich verantwortliche FĂŒhrungskrĂ€fte dann um die RĂŒckzahlung drĂŒcken, dĂŒrfen sie sich nicht wundern, wenn die Mitarbeiterschaft ernĂŒchtert und frustriert in innerer Emigration geht. Sie können dem aktiv entgegensteuern!

    Sie erfahren:

    • wie «soziales Kapitel» im Gegensatz zu «ökonomischem» Kapital funktioniert;
    • warum gegenseitige Verpflichtung und Zugehörigkeit zentrale Grössen sind;
    • wieviel Digitalisierung das Vertrauen vertrĂ€gt und wie soziale Schulden zurĂŒckgezahlt werden können!
