KEYNOTE-Docker Containers: What Every Developer Should Know
How long does it take to setup your production environment on your local machine including the database, caching server, web servers and more? Is your local environment *exactly* the same as your staging/test and production environments including security settings, app server settings, and others? Are you able to write client-side services that hit "real" services written in ASP.NET Core, Node.js or other technologies without pulling your hair out?

In this keynote session Dan Wahlin will discuss the role that Docker containers can play in the development world and the many benefits they can offer developers. By the end of the talk you'll understand why every developer should know the fundamentals of images and containers and learn about tools that can be used to get a full container-based dev environment up and running locally with minimal effort.

KEYNOTE-Becoming an Outlier: Systems For Exceptional Developers
As a developer, your image and your mind are your product. So to get what you've never had, you must do what you've never done with these precious resources. It's time to make a bigger impact, raise your income, and start coding with purpose. Let's discuss why developers can't afford cable, consider ways to improve your “luck surface area”, and review techniques to compress your career through accelerated development.  We'll explore the concrete activities that transform average developers into outliers. Prepare to think about your development career in a whole new way.
