Join industry-leading experts in multi-cloud application and gain insights on developing and delivering a modern apps architecture leveraging APIs, DevOps, Site Reliability Engineering and Microservices. 

Register today

Applications are the most valuable assets of any organization in the digital age, and form the foundation of our strategy to become the leader in multi-cloud application services.

At F5, code is at the center of our technology vision, and we believe that it keeps us connected in the digital age and drives innovation. Code disrupts industries. And the success of digital transformation initiatives depend on modernizing legacy app architectures so that they provide visibility and security into code-to-customer pathways.

At the two-hour live virtual summit, we are bringing together experts from across the application path and will focus on Cloud, Automation & Microservices and Security.

You will gain insights into:

  • How to secure applications built in a multi-cloud, microservices architecture.
  • How to simplify and secure application development and ensure continuous integration and continuous delivery.
  • The criticality of SRE principles.
  • How to lower the cost and complexity across the entire application lifecycle, from development to delivery to customers.
  • How DevOps, SecOps and NetOps can collaborate more efficiently in a microservices environment to improve time-to-market.
  • The combined benefits of F5, NGINX, and Shape along the Code to Customer path.

Agenda at a Glance


10.00 AM – 10.30 AM 9.00 AM – 9.30 AM
Code to Customer: F5’s Unified Architecture Vision Code to Customer: F5’s Unified Architecture Vision
Geng Lin, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, F5

The more applications are driving your organization’s performance, the more critical it becomes to automate and unlock those applications’ insights at scale. In this keynote, Geng Lin—F5’s Chief Technology Officer—will share F5’s unified architecture vision, in which applications are powered by Artificial Intelligence (AI) to deliver actionable business value.
10.30 AM – 11.00 AM 9.30 AM – 10.00 AM
Simplifying DevSecOps: Automation, Orchestration and Pipelining Simplifying DevSecOps: Automation, Orchestration and Pipelining
Hitesh Patel, Senior Director, Product Management – Automation, Orchestration & Ecosystems, F5
Sophisticated Cyber Attacks and Trends In Online FraudSophisticated Cyber Attacks and Trends In Online Fraud
Jarrod Overson, Director of Engineering, Shape Security

Every day there is a cat and mouse game security professional play with attackers trying to make an illicit profit at your company’s or your customers’ expense. Understanding where we have come from can give you clues and ideas about what attackers will do next and how to be one step ahead of the pack.
In this session, you will learn about the evolution and economics of credential stuffing and how to make yourself a hard target that is just worth the effort.
11.00 AM – 11.30 AM 10.00 AM – 10.30 AM
Observability and Security for your Microservices with Service Mesh Observability and Security in Microservices Environment enabling Service Mesh
Randy Almond, Director of Market Development, Aspen Mesh
Shawn Wormke, Vice President and General Manager, Aspen Mesh

While Kubernetes solves most of the build and deploy challenges that come with containers, it does not address critical runtime challenges around security, observability and control. This is where service mesh comes in.
In this session, you'll learn how F5's Aspen Mesh is building on top of Istio to help large enterprises and service providers better secure, understand, and manage their production Kubernetes environments.
Securing Applications with NGINX and F5 Securing Applications with NGINX and F5
Chris Witeck, Director of Product Management, NGINX
Daphne Won, Principal Product Manager, NGINX

As applications become more distributed, the attack surface is increasing. Organizations often have to make tradeoffs between releasing software quickly and ensuring security compliance. The impact to an organization’s reputation if a critical application is breached can be severe. In this session, we discuss how F5 and NGINX are bringing best-of-breed technologies together to ensure that application security is woven into every part of the application infrastructure.
11.30 AM – 12.00 PM 10.30 AM – 11.00 AM
Modernize Your App’s Lifecycle with CI/CD Pipeline Modernize Your App’s Lifecycle with CI/CD Pipeline
Kevin Jones, Global Solution Architect, NGINX

Today, many industries are working to achieve digital transformation and one of the pathways to success is with the adoption of a microservices based application architecture. This can be a difficult road to navigate and there are many concerns when making huge changes to your deployment tools and infrastructure design. In this presentation we will show how some of the largest name brands in technology are using powerful and robust tools, such as NGINX, Git and Jenkins, to build a reliable and scaleable modern application platform.
How to Manage Risks in the Cloud How to Manage Risks in the Cloud
Peter Silva, Senior Solution Developer – DevCentral, F5
Peter Hoffmeister, Global Senior Director, Public Cloud Solution Architect, F5
Tim Wagner, Principal Cloud Evangelist and Technical Advisor, F5

Cloud allows organizations to offload many responsibilities to third-party providers, but mitigating the risk to your applications isn’t one of them. In fact, the use of cloud and other third-party resources is rapidly expanding your attack surface, while reducing visibility and control over applications and data. In this session, attendees will learn how you protect your applications hosted in the cloud.
