Session title: Troubleshooting and debugging in cloud systems
Abstract: Public clouds have changed the way we scale systems, improved UX for DevOps and made systems design intuitive. Building a multi-tier distributed system is now not very different from assembling a 100 piece puzzle. But have these radical changes percolated into the mindset we have? Did we make the troubleshooting and debugging experience as easily scalable and intuitive? From my experience gathered working for multiple companies of varying sizes and fields - the answer is often “not really”. I’ve prepared an interactive talk, based on real-world simple examples and case studies, which introduces 5 simple rules that will make troubleshooting and debugging easy and intuitive to increase efficiency during solving incidents.

Session title: Partly Cloudy Abstract: The move to the cloud is accelerating, and companies everywhere are forsaking their data centers (or not building ones to begin with) and building their systems on advanced public cloud. However, the systems they are building are often architected based on practices and perceptions which are no longer relative in the cloud. It's mostly "partly cloudy" out there. This talks challenges innate assumptions and shows provocative new ideas on how one should engineer in the cloud
