About the talks

Drive innovation on Java platform
There has been a big shift in custom software development – where environment provisioning, infrastructure as code, containers and microservices and CICD has fundamentally changed the way we build, test and deploy applications.
Technological progress and the increasing number of viable use cases for AI, IOT, Distributed Ledger and AR/VR technologies means that the innovation horizon has dramatically broadened.
This talk will showcase the Java platform used by Capgemini to drive innovation.

Accelerate your Continuous Integration and Delivery with Kubernetes and Jenkins X
Times are changing! We all need to get better at delivering business value to customers faster and continuously with a cloud-native strategy – but how? This talk will show you how.

Let’s go Serverless with Kubernetes
Serverless is the talk of the town at the moment. This talk will describe the Knative open source project which brings serverless to the Kubernetes ecosystem and shows how you can create, edit, deploy and promote serverless applications using Jenkins X for your CI/CD
