Sneak peek from our Novatec Summit program:

What’s going on in my cluster?

Kubernetes can be hard. Not only in the initial learning and understanding of the concepts, but also the aspect of keeping an overview of what is happening in and around the cluster can be challenging. How can you quickly and easily tell if the cluster is healthy, well utilised and if all applications are running fine?

This talk intends to look at the various aspects of Kubernetes observability and to introduce and compares multiple Open Source tools to achieve that. The range of tools covers different observability levels and requirements of different user groups.

It starts with tools simply querying the Kubernetes API and delivering the outputs in an easy-to-understand UI, goes over the possibilities of services meshes and ends with application-side logging and monitoring. For each level of observability the user has to pay a certain price in terms of configuration and runtime overhead. In turn the quality and depth of the information is different.

The intended take-away is to get a feeling which type of tooling is the right one for a given purpose. Most options will be shown in a live demonstration.

Agile security – does it work?

IT security has become an indispensable part of the modern development of software products. Anyone who puts security aspects on the back burner or does not plan for them from the outset will sooner or later find themselves facing major problems. Security in software development is not a one-time activity, but must nowadays be a constant companion throughout the entire agile software lifecycle.
In my talk, I will show you how to integrate the security aspect as early as possible in your agile development process.
You will learn the basics of threat modeling. I will also show you how to derive security requirements from the OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) and then formulate this into Secure User/AbUser Stories.

Microservices, the easy way. How to develop a microservice architecture without dying at the first try.

Microservices have gained a lot of popularity in the last years. However, implementing a Microservice architecture is not an easy task. The wrong approach could potentially add more complexity and even bring the whole system down.

In this talk, we will look at some basic patterns for implementing microservices successfully while keeping complexity at low levels. We will also talk about some other important aspects, like infrastructure and teams interaction, that are crucial for a smooth microservices deployment and operation.

How to Support Junior Developers

By the time you get to a level of supporting junior developers, you’re likely to have forgotten what it feels like to be one. When done right, supporting junior developers not only leads to them feeling comfortable and confident in their growing skills, but also allows you to learn more about yourself and your own knowledge. Supporting junior developers is also the key to growing senior developers, building strong teams over the mid- to long-term, and preventing burnout.

This talk will cover what being a junior developer is like in 2021, and how you as a senior developer, manager, or coworker, can better support your juniors and drive excellence alongside healthy patterns of thinking. It will address the most common junior developer pain points (impostor syndrome, fear of retribution, etc), where they stem from, and the practical steps you can take to alleviate that pain.

Die Sprint Review: Quelle für Kollaboration und Kommunikation

Jeder Scrum Master kennt Definition und Regeln der Sprint Review aus dem Scrum Guide in- und auswendig. Das Team präsentiert das Erreichte – das aktuelle Inkrement – und gewinnt wertvolles Feedback. So bekommen alle einen Ausblick auf die Ziele und können diese dann gemeinsam und kollaborativ anpassen. Die Review hat aber Potenzial für viel mehr.

Doch verhindert ein traditionelles Meeting nicht die Kollaboration? Entwickler:innen und Nutzer:innen ziehen sich häufig nach dem Meeting wieder zurück und warten dann bis zur nächsten Review auf Feedback. Nein, dass muss nicht so sein.

Die Review kann aber für viel mehr genutzt werden als nur für eine reine Demonstration. Durch das Beobachten und die Analyse der Teilnehmer können wertvolle Helfer für die Anforderungsermittlung und Unterstützer bei einer Transformation gewonnen werden. Aber auch die Abwesenden liefen Ausgangspunkte für ein weiteres Vorgehen.

Agile Projekte können erst mit der Kollaboration zwischen Entwickler:innen und Stakeholder:innen ihre Stärken richtig ausspielen. Mit den richtigen Stakeholder:innen, gewonnen aus der Review, können dann die richtigen Strukturen ausgewählt werden, um ideale Ergebnisse bei optimaler Ausnutzung der Zeit zu erzielen.

What is a good foundation for a solid and fast B2B digitalization?

Not every organization will need a smart factory. What is the right basis to start or fuel your B2B digitalization? Vision – Leadership – Culture of welcoming Errors – Roles & Responsibilities – Systems – Steering. We will talk about some of the experiences to lay a solid foundation. And talk about NT’s portfolio and how this can help.

If that is of interest to you, please be invited to a 30 minutes share of our thoughts. We would be delighted if you then share your experience in the following discussion.

13:40 – 14:30 | Paulo Ferreira da Silva & Benjamin Weinert

Collaboration 4.0: Wie AR/VR unsere Zusammenarbeit revolutioniert

Stellt euch vor ihr könntet eure Kolleg:innen unabhängig vom Ort zu euch teleportieren, mit ihnen zusammenarbeiten, wichtige Dinge besprechen und gemeinsam über Konzepte schauen. Ihr würdet aus den unpersönlichen 2D-Meetings eine persönliche 3D-Brainstorming-Session verwandeln, in der ihr nicht nur eurer Kreativität freien Lauf lassen könnt, sondern auch fokussiert und konzentriert an euer Ziel kommt.

Klingt utopisch und eher nach Science-Fiction-Kollaboration als nach einem realistischen Szenario?

Eigentlich nicht. Denn wir zeigen euch, wie ihr mithilfe von AR/VR genau das machen könnt (bis auf das teleportieren vielleicht).
Es erwartet euch also in unserer Session eine ganze Menge an spannender Technik gepaart mit praktischen Erfahrungen aus dem Projektalltag beim Kunden.

14:35 – 15:25 | Thomas Flad & Michael Ruhl

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to good design

What defines good UI design? Is it really in the eye of the beholder? What do dolphins have to do with it?

In our guide we show you the basics and best practices. Using practical examples, we’ll demonstrate how you can noticeably improve your design with just a few simple principles. How can you guide the user? How can you create more harmony? How can you make content more readable?

15:35 – 16:25 | Florian Schmid & Elena Schatz

Race4Track – Virtuelle und Hybride Sportveranstaltungen
Race4Track is a new mobile app that supports you in organizing tailored sporting events. Whether purely virtual or hybrid (partially virtual and on site) – both are possible. Thanks to our cooperation with one of the biggest service providers in the area of race timing systems, we can now reliably support events of all kinds.

In this session, we want to show you the path from the initial idea to the mobile application followed by company foundation. You can expect an exciting mix of technology and business perspectives, enriched with initial customer experiences.

16:30 – 17:20 | Christian Schaible

Introduction to Spring Native
Over the past decade, the Spring Framework has had a significant impact on enterprise application development. In 2014, Spring Boot launched as a lightweight framework alternative to existing technologies, but it is now often seen as a slow and resource hogging heavyweight.

Thousands of Spring-based microservices in Kubernetes expose the weaknesses of JVM-based fat jar applications every day. A lot of memory is useless consumed and poor startup times prevent immediate adaptation to production workloads.

In recent years the popularity of the JVM as a base for microservices decreased and alternatives like Go have become more popular.

As a result the evolution path for developers focused on JVM-based software has been towards lightweight and reflection-free microservice frameworks that can be compiled into native images. Frameworks such as Micronaut and Quarkus are therefore becoming more and more popular.

In response to this and to provide a migration path for existing applications, Spring Native is being created.

In this talk I will show what Spring Native is, how it works, its benefits and challenges.

09:15 – 10:05 | Christian Schwörer

Supersonic Subatomic Mocking: How to test your Quarkus app with Kotlin, JUnit and MockK

The relatively young Quarkus framework is an increasingly serious competitor to established microservice frameworks such as Spring Boot. This is largely due to the fact that the powerful but yet lightweight application framework offers small memory footprint and reduced boot time. Hence, it’s not only interesting for developing microservices in containerized cloud platforms such as Kubernetes, but also for serverless computing.

And it supports – like almost all relevant JVM frameworks – my favorite programming language: Kotlin!

When developing an application with Quarkus and Kotlin you will sooner or later (hopefully sooner 😉 ) write isolated tests to determine whether your code behaves as expected. And as a Kotlin developer you probably want to use the technologies you are already familiar with, e.g. JUnit and MockK. But there are certain aspects you should be aware of when testing and mocking CDI beans in Quarkus.

Interested? Then let me share our experiences how to test a Quarkus app with Kotlin, JUnit and MockK. Practical insights guaranteed!

10:10 – 11:00 | Corvin Schapoehler

Concourse in Action

A reliable CI/CD pipeline is an important factors in agile software development. It allows for fast, automated and reliable builds as well as deployments. Jenkins was the way to go for most development teams. But with the rise of container technology and cloud native software, new challengers in the CI/CD server market arose.

We decided to use Concourse as our automation base. With its cloud native approach and usage of containers as the foundation, it is a good match allowing us to build and deploy on demand.

This talk will show how Concourse works, how we use it in our daily work and sketch its future. Also I will share the experience we made in more then three years of working with Concourse.

11:10 – 12:00 | Daniel Mader

User Input Validation with Kotlin Multiplatform

In web-based applications, user input must be validated twice: in the frontend as a direct feedback for the user and in the backend so that the data sent via your API only ends up validated in the database.

The validation logic must always be in sync to avoid strange side effects, which in turn entails a lot of
redundant work and coordination. Validating objects only once in the backend and then simply “exporting the logic”” to the frontend would be nice, right? Daniel Mader uses a practical example to demonstrate how this is possible using Kotlin Multiplatform.

12:05 – 12:55 | Tobias Schäfer

Automating Processes with Camunda and Micronaut

Camunda supports the integration of its workflow engine into different architectures – e.g. embedded into a microservice.
Micronaut is a JVM-based microframework for building modular and easily testable microservices. Its ahead-of-time compilation approach potentially reduces startup time and memory usage.

In this talk I will show how to integrate the Camunda workflow engine into Micronaut applications. We also implement an external task worker with Micronaut and optimise it with GraalVM so that it starts in milliseconds!
I introduce our two open source projects which integrate Camunda and Micronaut. The integrations set sensible defaults so that you can get started with minimal configuration: Just add a dependency in your Micronaut project.

13:40 – 14:30 | Marigianna Skouradaki

Intelligent Process Automation with AWS and Camunda

Intelligent Process Automation describes the utilization of Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Process Automation technologies to leverage the automation of business processes. We orchestrated an Intelligent Document Analysis service with Amazon Comprehend to leverage our internal cost-submission process automation. For the implementation of the business process, we tried two state-of-art Camunda distributions (Camunda Platform Run and Micronaut Camunda).

Although this project realized a simple use case, it still shed light on many important aspects, such as architectural decisions, performance issues, and limitations on training machine learning models.

14:35 – 15:25 | Matthias Haeussler

Howto: Options Galore to Get from Source Code to Container

A typical workflow in a modern software dev project often looks like: Build code, put built artefact into a container image, put the container image into a registry and deploy to Kubernetes. Each step has it’s own requirements and pitfalls alike. The overall goal is most often to bake those steps into easily repeatable pipelines and enable a high degree of automation and standardization.

Dockerfiles seems to be the choice with the highest adoption when it comes to containerizing code artefacts. However there are options, which might remove some of the pitfalls and standardize the entire process even more.

The talk will give deeper insights by comparing (simple, multi-stage, BuildKit) Dockerfiles to Cloud-Native Buildpacks (buildpacks.io/paketo.io), Google’s JIB and Source2Image under the evaluation criteria of build time, build size, standardization, robustness and security. The examples and live demo will have certain focus on Java-based frameworks (Spring Boot, Quarkus, Java EE), but coverage of other languages will also be included and highlighted.

The intended take-away of the session is a better overview of Open Source technologies for container building and deployment options along with understanding of requirements, advantages and drawbacks.

15:35 – 16:25 | Anna McDougall

Introduction to Cypress
Frontend testing is a whole different beast. Here, I take you on a journey into the wonderful world of Cypress: an end-to-end testing library which enables you to define what visual results you expect a frontend app to have, based on pre-defined user interactions.

Creating these user paths in advance allows you to save crucial amounts of time from testing, and the visual tools offered by Cypress also allows you to see these paths unravel in a sped-up version of user interactions.

This talk will cover the basics of frontend testing with Cypress, including demonstrations in a ReactJS environment:

  • Why do we test the frontend?
  • What are we testing with Cypress?
  • How do we define user interactions and expectations?
  • How can we see the results of these tests?

16:30 – 17:20 | Carlos Barragan

Which JVM Version are you using and why is it still Java 8?
These simple questions can reveal a lot about your software development process. So, this talk is not about
the features of an specific Java Version nor a comparison among different Java versions but rather about the
path to the holy grail of software: feedback based development. What is that exactly? How can you reach
that high stage of software development? What are the common pitfalls? How elite performers do software
development? How far are you from them? Why agile is not working at your company? Why cloud is only the
beginning of the journey? Why is speed the killer feature? All of these topics and more will be discussed in this talk.

09:15 – 10:05 | Harald Bosch

Unüberwachtes Lernen zur Anomalieerkennung

Unüberwachtes Lernen kann helfen große Datenmengen handhabbar zu machen und ist deshalb zur Unterstützung des Menschen bei komplexen Analysen hilfreich. Die erlernten Modelle beschreiben die Struktur der Daten und können daher gut erkennen, ob neue Daten vielleicht nicht zu diesen Strukturen passen.

In diesem Grundlagenvortrag werden die Teilbereiche Clustering und Dimensionsreduktion des unüberwachten Lernens vorgestellt und gezeigt, wie sie zur Anomalieerkennung eingesetzt werden können. Aus jedem Bereich werden ein grundlegender Algorithmus und seine Eigenschaften anhand von Beispielen vorgestellt.

10:10 – 11:00 | Andreas Falk

Secure Single Page Applications

Whenever frontend applications are built today, they are almost invariably single-page applications (SPA). SPAs are implemented in either Javascript or Typescript and run entirely in the web browser under the control of the user and installed browser add-ons. In this talk, we will look at the most popular SPA frameworks such as Angular, React and Vue and take a closer look at security. In particular, we will look at common security risks such as cross-site scripting (XSS), cross-site request forgery (CSRF), broken authentication/authorization, and misconfiguration of CORS. In order not to leave developers defenseless in the rain, we will analyze the built-in defense mechanisms for each of those SPA frameworks respectively, and see what steps are required beyond that. So be prepared to see some XSS popups in your popular SPAs.

11:10 – 12:00 | Matthias Hofmaier

Detecting Insurance Fraud With the Help of Machine Learning

Up to a quarter of all insurance claims in Europe are fraudulent and the resulting damage caused to insurance companies exceeds several billion annually.

Traditional fraud detection relies on the experience of claims handlers to detect patterns in the claims data. As there is a generational shift going on in the insurance sector, a lot of this experience is lost. Insurers must cope with this with a massive training effort of their young employees. At the same time, the complexity of fraud attempts has drastically risen as frauds have access to automation and countless data sources to create fraudulent insurance claims.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are technologies that can help to conquer those challenges. ML algorithms can learn from the experience of the claims handlers by looking at data of past fraud cases and its regarding indicators. The usage of such algorithms enables automation and can even uncover patterns that are hardly detectable for human processors.

In this talk, we will take a look at the challenges of insurance fraud detection and the possibilities AI and ML offers to conquer them by means of our demo app Novatec Fraud Detective.

12:05 – 12:55 | Matthias Haeussler

What’s going on in my cluster?

Kubernetes can be hard. Not only in the initial learning and understanding of the concepts, but also the aspect of keeping an overview of what is happening in and around the cluster can be challenging. How can you quickly and easily tell if the cluster is healthy, well utilised and if all applications are running fine?

This talk intends to look at the various aspects of Kubernetes observability and to introduce and compares multiple Open Source tools to achieve that. The range of tools covers different observability levels and requirements of different user groups.

Cloud Security in Action! – ein Finanzdienstleister geht in die Cloud

Die Digitalisierung traditioneller Unternehmen und damit meist zwingend verbundene Modernisierung der IT macht auch vor dem Sektor der Finanzdienstleister nicht Halt.

In diesem Vortrag berichtet die SüdLeasing – eine 100% Tochter einer Landesbank – von ihrem Weg von der “legacy IT” zur modernen cloud-basierten Umgebung. Aufgrund der Sensitivität der Daten lag von der ersten Sekunde ein besonderer Fokus auf dem Thema Cloud Security.

Hier berichten Tamira Horn und Thorsten Jakoby von der Reise eines BaFin regulierten Finanzdienstleisters in die Cloud. Statt “das sichern wir durch eine Firewall und Netzwerke”, wurden Multi-Tenant-Zero-Trust-Architekturen aufgebaut.

Business Continuity und Disaster Recovery wurden voll automatisiert mit Hilfe von Terraform, Access Control Lists und Microsoft Azure aufgebaut.

Wir zeigen mit Beispielen und Demo’s wie wir es technisch umgesetzt haben, nicht das Rechenzentrum in die Cloud zu migrieren, sondern eine sichere und flexible Plattform zu designen, um uns auf den Weg in die Cloud vorzubereiten.

14:35 – 15:25 | Christina Paule

Agile Sicherheit – Funktioniert das?

IT-Sicherheit ist bei der modernen Entwicklung von Softwareprodukten nicht mehr wegzudenken. Wer Sicherheitsaspekte hinten anstellt oder diese nicht von vorneherein mit einplant, findet sich früher oder später vor großen Problemen wieder. Sicherheit in der Softwareentwicklung ist keine einmalige Tätigkeit, sondern muss heutzutage ein ständiger Begleiter im gesamten agilen Softwarelebenszyklus sein.

In meinem Talk zeige ich Dir, wie du den Sicherheitsaspekt so früh wie möglich in euren agilen Entwicklungsprozess integrieren kannst.

Du lernst dabei die Grundlagen von Threat Modelling kennen. Außerdem zeige ich Dir, wie du aus dem OWASP Application Security Verification Standard (ASVS) Sicherheitsanforderungen ableiten und dieses dann anschließend in Secure User/Abuser Stories formulieren kannst.

inspectIT Ocelot: Dynamic OpenTelemetry Instrumentation at Runtime
If you want to trace or extract specific data from a Java application with OpenTelemetry, you usually have to modify the application’s code. However, this is often not possible, especially with bought-in software.

We would like to show, how the open source inspectIT Ocelot Java agent can be used to dynamically inject OpenTelemetry code at runtime for extracting specific application and business data – and all this without having to adapt the application itself.

16:30 – 17:20 | Marvin Wiegand & Andreas Falk

Grüne Triebe von alten, starken Bäumen schützen: IT-Security bei Maschine und Produktion – auf dem Weg in die Industrie 4.0
Was wäre, wenn die Heizung zu Hause im Winter eiskalt bliebe? Oder einfach kein “”Saft”” mehr aus den Steckdosen käme? Das wäre doch schrecklich, oder? So – oder so ähnlich – kann es sich für Unternehmen im industriellen Umfeld anfühlen, wenn durch IT-Security-Schwachstellen, Viren und Ransomware in junge Digitalisierungs- und Industrie 4.0-Systeme (z.B. Remote Support) eindringen und die Produktion lahmlegen.

In diesem Vortrag werden aktuelle Erkenntnisse und Sicherheitskonzepte für den industriellen Bereich, aus einigen Novatec-Projekten im produzierenden Gewerbe, spannend und anschaulich zusammengefasst.

Presentation Documents

History of the Novatec Summit

Corona sent us all to the home office, which not only separated us from our colleagues, but also from our friends. We did enough social distancing, so we invited friends to the Novatec Summit 2020, all remotely of course! The feedback from the past two years has been incredible, so why not expand the circle? This year, for the first time, not only Novateccies were allowed to listen to the 19 exciting talks of your colleagues, this increased the number of attendees to 150 without further ado!

Funfacts:

0 zoom streams collapsed
3 speakers forgot to unmute themselves

Ready for round two? True to the motto: It worked great last year, let’s do it again! The second Novatec Summit took place on November 15, 2019, once again at the headquarters in Leinfelden-Echterdingen. Once again, 115 Novateccies were able to listen to a total of 16 presentations by their colleagues and expand their knowledge as a result.

Funfacts:

258 portions of noodles from the food truck
7 cases of beer for the After Conference
130 butter pretzels for the coffee

The Novatec Summit took place for the first time in 2018 and had the goal of making external presentations available internally. Unfortunately, it happens far too often at conferences that the talks of colleagues cannot be heard. Therefore, we wanted to make this input available internally as well. The foundation for a new format was born and was to be implemented in the same year, on October 19, 2018 to be exact.

A total of 90 Novateccies attended the event and were thus able to listen to 16 presentations in three tracks and hear from their colleagues what they otherwise always miss on the big stages of conferences and trade shows.

Funfacts:

237 portions of langos from the food truck
6 cases of beer for the After Conference
110 butter pretzels for the coffee
