HTTP/2: Pipeline Bling
Hector Castro

Despite the major version change, HTTP/2 is not a ground-up rewrite of the HTTP protocol. In fact, HTTP/2 preserves the concept of HTTP headers, methods, and status codes. HTTP/2 refines how HTTP is expressed on the wire to help reduce end-user perceived latency. In this talk we’ll explore the changes introduced by HTTP/2 and identify areas where it can be applied today. Finally, we'll cover common hacks around HTTP/1.x that simply go away as a result of adopting HTTP/2.

Continuous Deployment with HashiCorp's Terraform

DevOps best practices encourages IT infrastructure be codified as source code. HashiCorp's Terraform aspires to offer a common mechanism through which IT professionals -- including software development teams -- can safely deploy and evolve infrastructure across entire landscapes from simple configuration files. In this talk, I'll introduce Terraform, outline how it compares to similar tools, offer some background on its strengths, and provide insight on some common pitfalls.

The Soft Side of Software Development
Craig Monson

What is software development? What does that really entail, and how do we enable ourselves and our coworkers to be our best? In the IT community, there's a strong focus on the skills and technology aspect of the craft, but the other side... the human side... is often ignored, or considered unimportant. I want to change the way we ALL look at our craft by exploring what it means to develop software, from writing lines of code, to leading groups of creative craftsmen, while focusing on the humanistic aspect that is so often overlooked. My hope is that we'll all come away from this with a new appreciation that the soft side of software development is just (if not more) important than the hard side of software development.

Rethinking "Soft" Skills: What makes them so hard?
Helene Speer

We've seen increasing awareness of the importance of interpersonal, communication and critical thinking skills to career success. As developers, do we neglect these "soft" skills in our focus on the technical? We'll explore the origins of the "soft vs hard" skill dichotomy, its manifestations, and its implications for our field.
