InfoQ
Roundtables

Join a live panel discussion between software practitioners (and ask your own questions) to accelerate your learning and become better informed.

Production Readiness: Building Resilient Systems

Charity Majors has often said, “If you aren’t testing in prod you aren’t testing in reality.” How do you balance testing in production and being production-ready? Join Charity along with engineers from LaunchDarkly, Netflix, Cossack Labs, IBM, and VMware to discuss the path to production. Production Readiness: Building Resilient Systems looks at what it means to have a resilient, production apps today. Topics we’ll discuss include observability, security, the software supply chain, CI/CD, chaos engineering, along with deployment techniques such as feature flagging, canaries, blue-green deployments all in the pursuit of production resiliency.

    Recruiting, Interviewing, and Hiring Senior Developer Talent

    Senior software engineers are coveted and scarce. Engineering leaders often feel like technical recruiting teams fail to source them and the interviewing process fails to achieve its one goal: hire these critical team members. In this roundtable, engineering leaders from high growth enterprises share their best practices for hiring the teams that will propel their growth.

    Key topics include: 

    • Building and living up to your engineering brand
    • Inclusive interviewing best practices and how to implement them
    • Identifying hiring signal for senior talent

    The conferences were very well prepared and the people giving them really knew about the topic and were sharing all their experience.

    Oscar Oswaldo Cerna Senior Software Developer at Paypal

    The content was spot on and the speakers were well-versed in their topics.

    Scott Morman Software Architect at OEConnection

    Good subject matter for a "lightweight" event. Really good and relevant speakers.

    Joseph Wittlich Site Reliability Engineer at Allscripts

    Interesting insight into SRE experience and some usable tactic takeaways. The format worked well and was well organized.

    Brad Johnson Software Team Lead

    [I liked] having presentations packed with quality content from leading speakers from the industry. Asking questions with Q&A was really useful.

    Dilan Srilal Software Engineer at Klarna

    The topics and the way they are presented by people with current experience really improves my visibility in the field. The answers from the presenters during the Q&A reveal details that otherwise will be learned the hard way by my own mistakes.

    Ognyan Dimitrov Solution Architect at IT-economics GmbH

    Quick digestible and actionable information. This half-day event was great. I like the focus on a particular topic with different perspectives.

    Gary Keorkunian Principal Software Architect at UKG

    This was a great way to start diving into all the rich content InfoQ provides.

    Brought to you by InfoQ

    Senior software developers rely on the InfoQ community to keep ahead of the adoption curve. One of the main reasons software architects and engineers tell us they keep coming back to InfoQ is because they trust the information provided and selected by their peers.

    We’ve been helping software development teams adopt new technologies and practices for over 15 years through InfoQ articles, news items, podcasts, tech talks, trends reports and QCon software development conferences. Join a community of senior software engineers, architects and team leads and never miss out on important trends.

    Frequently asked questions

    The event includes presentations including live Q&A with the speaker, followed by "Continue the Conversation", an informal AMA session.

    InfoQ Live will feature sponsored Roundtables: live panel discussions between software practitioners where attendees can ask their own questions.

    Just type your question in the chat during the presentation or during the couple of minutes preceding the Q&A time and we'll share the questions with the speaker during the Q&A dedicated  time.  

    This is a dedicated space for attendees and speakers to Continue the Conversation after each session. 

    Please note that this session is unstructured and unfacilitated - it’s a space for you to engage naturally with our speakers - just as you might do after seeing a presentation at an in-person conference.

    A Zoom meeting room will open when joining. Please join the Zoom room with your camera on and unmute yourself to talk. A member of the InfoQ Team will let you know when the next session is beginning.

    Registered attendees will get access to the talk recordings included in their ticket after the event. Recordings for the Roundtables will be accessible about 48 hours after the event. Recordings will remain available for a duration of 30 days.

    Roundtable sessions are co-located, sponsored virtual events happening right after the InfoQ Live sessions. They are panel discussions between practitioners, led and designed by a practitioner moderator, with an opportunity for participants to ask questions.  

    Roundtables are free and open to all. Registration is required.

ClickMeeting and zoom will be used for the event.
