|Consul - much more than a Service Discovery Tool||
In a conversation with Chef and Puppet practitioners in the company I heard the same complaint over and over again. Configuration Management is sooo much better than manually configuring servers, but it is painful because all the configuration points that you still need to manage. Enter Service Discovery, a way to connect our different services together with no configuration. Service Discovery is great, but Consul is service discovery and much much more. It solves some of our orchestration issues and does configuration management as well. It is a key value store and a DNS server and its killer feature is Consul Events and Consul Templates.
I want to explain our Consul use cases, what it can do and where we are going with it. It is not one tool to rule them all, but it is a critical piece of our new infrastructure.
|How to ace your tech migration...||
Your company is stuck with an old and outdated technology stack. Development takes forever, top talent turns you down because they like cutting edge work, customers are complaining about load time, the app is starting to break down because your framework is no longer supported and no one is happy.
I will explain how Totango's front end migration came to be - ditching a decaying GWT application in favor of a shiny new Ember.js + Node.js one in under 3 months.

|Build Architecture with micro services: How to get it done right?||
When you have multiple services (micro-services) in your network, at some point you split your one big git repository into multiple.
I would like to know of good practices people have employed in their work.
What design patterns do you apply for Hadoop? In particular, if you have pipelines running several Hadoop/Pig jobs, which design patterns help make the pipeline more modular/maintainable/extensible?
|Micro App architecture||
Taking a monolithic service and slice it into micro services is a well known practice.
Doing the same for a large, complex, legacy web application is something else.
Micro App architecture helps you optimize KPIs like ownership, test , choosing the best technology stack to each application while keep using shared common capabilities for all micro Apps.
how did we manage to do it. What's are the concepts of Micro App architecture? What are the challenges, what still need to be done?

|Building a Data Science team||
Everyone is looking for Data Scientists, but not many agree on exactly what a data scientist is. In many places the requirements describe not one, but at least three different roles combined in a "perfect" employee. These people are as rare as unicorns and cost about the same. So how do you build a data-science team? how to define real-world requirements?, what to look for?, what to avoid? and how to conduct meaningful interviews? (and how to lure them in to your company if you cannot afford their weight in gold?)
