'What if dockerfiles and makefiles had a baby...'

In Adam's experience build scripts are often an ugly mix of make files, bash scripts, groovy code, and who knows what else. Adam will share his personal experience of moving to use the open-source earthfile format to improve this mess and walk through migrating an example project.

Adam Gordon Bell has a popular podcast on software development (CoRecursive). He formerly worked on cloud security and container security for Tenable. He is now working on the open-source build tool earthly and can be found on Twitter @adamgordonbell.

'ChatOps When It Matters'

Incident response is one of the key components to running a successful DevOps organization, but only when all the parts work together. ChatOps has often been seen as an important part to Incident Response, but can be much maligned when not used properly. In this talk, we will take a look at how to use your ChatOps tooling to work with your team on Incident Response, how to create an Incident Response Playbook and why that is key to streamlining team activities during an incident, and how integrations can be work with your ChatOps setup to help bring the necessary people together to respond.
