19:00 - Intro from our host Trainline

19:15 - Talk 1 - Enterprise Machine Identities with Venafi, Vault & Terraform
Carl Bourne - Global Solutions Architect

In the new world of highly dynamic and ephemeral applications, services and workloads it is becoming increasingly more important for these services to be bound to either enterprise or publicly trusted identity services. The ability to fully automate X.509 key and certificate lifecycles for all entities are critical to establishing and maintaining identity and secure inter/intra communication within these environments. However, providing fast fully automated processes that enable this whilst complying with organisational security policies is challenging for both developers and information security teams alike.

This talk will discuss how machine identities that establish an enterprise or public trust can be automatically bound to containers, workloads, and services using Vault and Terraform. It will demonstrate how X.509 certificates become first-class citizens and how developers can easily access this using low code/no code concepts from within their toolchains.

19:45 - Talk 2 - Terraforming in a Serverless World
Marcos Lilljedahl - Head of IT Operations @ ZEIT

Marcos will showcase the different challenges and patterns learned through provisioning both static and dynamic content in AWS Lambda through Terraform.
Covering good practices across providers and provisioners to handle Lambda packaging, state management, and consistency.
After this Marcos will go on to explain the creation of a provider to implement the workflow at ZEIT.

20:30 - Remaining food, drinks and off to the Pub!
