Jeff Hackert Knows about Change!

Former Director of Engineering at Chef, VP of Engineering at Soylent, and Partner at SuperGroup, Jeff has seen what works, what doesn't, and the unique challenges that Change presents in technology and for the people implementing it.

He'll be sharing his knowledge with you at InedoCon 2019, May 22-23 in Portland, Oregon.

As a self-described 'agent of Change' Jeff has been in the thick of Change over the last 2 decades. His expertise in: development culture, software methodologies, tooling, and the buzzwords that go with them is immense.

In his session "Is DevOps still a thing" Jeff will cover: past trends & which of them have proven worth holding onto, common stumbling blocks & how to avoid them, and how to benefit from Change.

Jeff talks more about his keynote in this short video:

Monolith to Microservices while Maintaining Compliance-with Bob Vandehey of Alkami Technology

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • You work in a highly regulated industry
  • You work on a monolith application that is slowing down your development
  • You're interested in moving towards a microservice architecture

If so, you NEED to hear from Bob Vandehey, Vice President and Chief Architect at Alkami Technology, at InedoCon 2019.

  • Bob has been working in online banking applications for more than 20 years, and he knows what stands up to compliance standards and what doesn't.
  • He managed a monolith until it became too unwieldly and slowed down the team's ability to release changes quickly.
  • Bob has moved his team to a microservice based model that componentized their monolith by breaking it into packages to allow for CI/CD.

At his InedoCon 2019 talk, you'll learn firsthand how Bob's team has broken down their aging monolith into a componentized, miroservices-based application and created a CI/CD toolchain that puts packages and synchronization as the key concepts to deliver changes quickly and reliably.

Check out Bob's short video for more details:



Prior to Alkami, Bob was Senior Director at Rovi, and Senior Director at Online Resources, a financial services firm. He has been the driving force to make sure organizations stay compliant, stay adaptable, and drive the market forward.

Taking down the Monolith with Kevin Griffin

Learning from passionate subject matter experts is a hallmark of the conference experience. Learning from experienced training professionals can take a normal conference session to the next level of accessibility and help provide a deeper understanding for attendees.

Ensuring that we had great teachers, and not just speakers, at InedoCon 2019 was a requirement for us from the very beginning.

Kevin Griffin, as owner of Swift Kick consulting, is not just a development expert but a gifted trainer that makes instruction a key part of his development process.

Aside from leading the ProGet Certification Workshops at InedoCon 2019, we're ecstatic that Kevin will also be leading a session: Taking Down a Monolith One Package at a Time.

Hear about his session in his own words in this short video:



Kevin's experience as a consultant gives him a refreshing perspective as an outsider specializing in decoupling the parts of monolith applications to make them more stable and secure; while speeding up release cycles that are often measured in quarters.

His experience with Health Care, Ticket Brokering, and Military codebases has given Kevin vast experience in seeing what large organizations do wrong, and how to fix it in a maintainable way!

Aside from his work as a consultant, Kevin is a frequent conference speaker, an author, and an Inedo Certified Trainer. Not only can he teach you better and more in-depth ways to use Inedo's tools – he wrote some of the training modules and courses that we use to train others!
