Talk 1: Observability for Microservices in Multi-Cloud Era
Abstract: Observability data plays a vital role in ensuring the smooth functioning of an application. Continuous monitoring is a key aspect of observability that enables developers to identify and address issues in real-time, thereby facilitating efficient debugging, fault management, and timely corrective measures.
However, with the increasing complexity of modern applications, especially those based on microservices architectures, the amount of operations data, including logs, metrics, traces, etc, generated by these systems has significantly increased. The collection, storage, and maintenance of this data come at a considerable cost, both in terms of resources and finances. This talks would discuss how observability plays a significant role in large scale applications and how it can be scaled and optimised.
Talk 2: Permissioned Blockchain and its use-cases
Abstract: This talk shall provide a comprehensive technical overview of permissioned blockchain, a promising and balanced model that combines decentralization with control by restricting access to a pre-approved group of participants. By emphasizing its distinct characteristics from public blockchains, such as enhanced security and privacy with higher transaction throughput, talk shall highlight the immense potential of permissioned blockchain. Exploring its practical applications across industries, including supply chain management, healthcare, finance, and government sectors, attendees will gain valuable insights into how this technology can streamline operations, reduce costs, and foster trust in data integrity through its transparent and immutable ledger.
Talk 3: Chaos Engineering for Better Resiliency
Abstract: This talk shall delve into the fascinating world of Chaos Engineering for Better Resiliency, offering valuable insights into how controlled disruptions can bolster large scale systems reliability. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore this subtle yet effective approach, discovering its ability to empower organisations to navigate challenges with ease, foster a culture of continuous improvement, and be better prepared for the unpredictable. Moreover, this talk will provide guidance on how students can embark on a learning journey in Chaos Engineering, equipping them with valuable skills to contribute to the development of resilient systems in the future.
