Finally, we’re back to in-person events! In September, I had a very busy month doing different presentations at various conferences. I wanted to use this short blog to collect the presentations, I delivered and link to the respective slides, in case you missed the presentations, but might be interested in the materials presented during the talks.
Digital Exchange Bergisches Rheinland 2022 (DIX 2022)
Promoting innovation, establishing networks, shaping transformation that’s the overall goal of Digital Exchange, which is a regional one day conference in the “Bergische Rheinland“, in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. With over 700 attendees and 80 presentations it was a fully-packed day, with lots of opportunities to learn new and interesting things as well as to exchange ideas or simply meet people.
At DIX 2022, I delivered two sessions:
- Cloud-native Application Development – The new normal
- Rumble in the Jungle – API Kickstart with Kong
DOAG is the main conference of the German Oracle User Group. With about 1000 participants, the largest Oracle user conference in Europe took place again on site, in the city of Nuremberg, after a two-year break. This year, we had one special theme day, shaped by the different communities within the user group, two classic conference days and one training day.
At DOAG 2022, I did the following presentations:
- Cloud-native application development on OCI
- Analytics meets Integration – Modern Development mit Data APIs (feat. Fabian Hardt)
- Modern Integration based on OCI Cloud-native Services
- Service Mesh Advanced Use Cases (feat. Fabian Hardt)
I addition, I was part of a Panel discussion about challenges and experiences in Cloud transitions projects.
Kong Summit 2022
My highlight so far this year was Kong Summit that took place in San Francisco. At this 2 day conference, with almost 500 attendees with 75 speakers delivering various session, I did one session about how to implement a consistent Observability (o11y) strategy in Microservices architectures without changing your service implementations. If you wanted to learn, what happened at Kong Summit, you can read that in my post in our OPITZ CONSULTING company blog.
For my personally the event had a special surprise, as I was named Kong Champion of the year. This was a great honor for me and shows me that the community activities I did in the past months are valuable.
