A schedule and introduction of the presenters is as follows:

Presentation

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CICD), microservices, containers and automation are buzzwords spreading throughout software and app development spaces; but where do these architectures make sense to apply and what are the real benefits? In this presentation, Jones will explore key differences between complicated vs. complex systems and how this applies to modern software development. Guests will learn how modern, massively-scaled software companies are using processes that mimic natural systems to grow, evolve and adapt to changing demands.
