Event description

Description


Built by technologists for technologists

XConf is a one-day showcase of the latest thinking from ThoughtWorks' tech community and provides a platform for passionate technologists who are looking for inspiration and a chance to network with peers. Our goal is to create a community of technologists; learning and sharing the latest technology ideas in an ever-changing world.


Our theme for this year’s event is Cloud Native Engineering for Data Intensive Applications. It reflects the convergence of several trends we’ve seen evolve over recent years. Today’s applications are driven by increasing volumes of data and must run securely in the cloud. We’ve shifted to a cloud-first world and are now seeing intense competition between public cloud vendors to provide the best developer experience. But hosting these data-intensive applications in the cloud also raises concerns about privacy and the ethical treatment of customer data.

We’d like to encourage a free and open exchange of ideas around these and other related topics.


In this year’s programme, we hope to explore and answer:


  • How can we use automation to optimise the cloud experience?
  • What are the sensible defaults for setting up and operating the latest crop of container orchestration tools?
  • Can we apply what we know about good software engineering practices to the worlds of machine learning and infrastructure automation?
  • What does it mean for a developer to responsibly and ethically handle personal information in a cloud environment?


A light breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and networking drinks/finger food will be provided. If you have any questions, please contact events_au@thoughtworks.com


All ticket proceeds will go to Digital Rights Watch, a registered charity organisation committed to standing up for digital rights of Australians.
