Keynote: The Changing Role of the Software Developer

A session at JAX 2016

Wednesday 20th April, 2016

2:15pm to 2:45pm (CET)

There are often disagreements on the precise definition of DevOps, but one thing is clear: developers are now becoming responsible for things that were once the job of Operations. At the same time, users are demanding new applications at a dizzying pace. Combined, these changes bring great news: developers are becoming more vital to the business than ever before. But, with great power comes great responsibility. How do we deal with these new operations tasks while still meeting the demands for new applications? The answer, as always, is for us to learn new skills and to choose the right technologies to help us. In this keynote, you’ll hear from David Barnes, the Program Director of Emerging Internet Technologies at IBM. David will demonstrate how a you can use cloud based services and containers to abstract the complexity of operations so you can focus on what’s important to you: creating great applications.
