* Going Rambo: Contract and Collaboration Testing in Ruby

Contract and collaboration testing are the future of testing microservices, but in many languages, few or no tools are available to facilitate this process. Rambo is a new Ruby tool that generates contract tests from API documentation.

* Taking no for an answer

Open source (like many fields) rewards people who are confident and even a bit pushy. So we give talks encouraging folk to get over imposter syndrome, lean in, say yes to more things. But self-improvement shouldn't focus only on our most vulnerable members, but also our most powerful. So let's talk not about saying yes, but about hearing no. Learning to take no for an answer can transform efforts such as security, diversity and mentoring where we have few experts or volunteers and great need. Let's talk about accepting "defeat" with grace, and how to take "no" for an answer while still moving forwards.

* Diving into distributed microservices architecture with Kubernetes on AWS and GCE

When designing a reliable solution with lots of moving parts, it's important to look not just into code but in-between code - more at the integration parts of the overall system. In this intense talk you will learn about the variety of real-world important aspects to take into account architecting a flexible microservices based solution. Some of the valuable aspects are environment choices, infrastructure planning, preparation and automation, separation of solution parts into independently deployable services, service discovery, replication, resiliency and many more. You will explore into the practical architecture of Kubernetes, see how to create and configure Kubernetes cluster on AWS and GCE, create and prepare containerized services to be deployed into the cluster.

* The High Barrier to Entry in Tech for the Underpriviliged

When you are trying to transition into tech, it helps to be part of an open source community that welcomes people from all types of backgrounds and experience-levels. If you are a beginner programmer and underprivileged, the search for the right tech community can be a daunting experience. You may be systematically excluded from participating in some communities by gatekeepers. As a programmer who comes from a marginalised community, allow me to share with you the story of how I found a programming community that welcomed and helped me to overcome the high barrier to entry in tech. This talk aims to encourage everyone to do their bit to create inviting communities for the underprivileged.

* Why you ought to have 100% test coverage

Many people say that achieving and maintaining 100% test coverage is too hard, too time consuming, or too fragile. But I'll argue that whether you consider yourself a craftsman or an engineer, you shouldn't accept anything less.
