[SLIDES]Sam Elamin @Samelamin - Metrics driven development
Moving to a distributed system will solve all your problems and you will be in developer heaven. Right? Not exactly, having hundreds of services doing different things means it's increasingly difficult knowing where exactly production issues are hiding. In this talk Sam Elamin will relate his real life experience working on a distributed system dealing with £100,000 worth of transactions every hour. Sam will cover monitoring and how to develop your features based on how your customers use your platform and, most importantly, business metrics. Sam will cover how to implement metrics in your application and setting up dashboards to gaining visibility into what is happening in your production system right now. We'll also go through some helpful techniques to help you convince your domain experts that gaining this insight is invaluable to keeping your competitive advantage. As an extra treat come and see how JUSTEAT time travels in production, using open source software that can be set up in a matter of days!

[SLIDES]Sean Chittenden @SeanChittenden - Production Readiness Strategies for an Automated World
Production Ready.  What does it mean?  And to whom?  Does that term factor in post-launch concerns such as debugability and ownership?  What are the lifecycle phases for moving an idea into a hardened production system?

As the world continues its furious adoption of automation, Foo-as-a-Service, and ever changing tools, what are the baseline assumptions, risks, checklists, and processes required to support the evolving landscape of "production ready."  In this talk we will deploy a sample application and build both a checklist and scorecard to evaluate the readiness of a system and an organization's practices.
