Abstract

It seems like there is a new technology trend, development methodology, or deployment tool coming out every day and if you aren’t using it you are labeled as deprecated, legacy, or a technology dinosaur. Come hear straight talk about the latest trends such as blockchain, chatbots, serverless, CD pipelines, AI, and machine learning. In 45 minutes you will know more than your average redditor, and you can shut down tweet-driven development in your workplace once and for all.
