Sébastien Blanc

Sébastien Blanc,is a Passion-Driven-Developer with one primary goal : Make the Developers Happy. He likes to share his passion by giving talks that are pragmatic, fun and focused on live coding.

In today's fast-paced and ever-evolving technological landscape, organizations face the challenge of breaking down traditional silos and adopting collaborative practices to drive innovation and achieve operational excellence. The journey begins with embracing DevOps principles, which emphasize communication, collaboration, and automation between development and operations teams. However, DevOps deals with the relation between Devs and Ops, and stakeholders' needs, in the form of corporate policies, governance and constraints, remain external to the process. By embracing Platform Engineering, organizations can establish a unified platform that empowers developers, operations teams, and stakeholders to work together seamlessly and accelerate the delivery of high-quality software.
In this talk, we'll embark on a journey from DevOps to GitOps and finally to Platform Engineering, elucidating each step with clear definitions, case studies, and real-world applications. We'll dissect the elements that connect these practices and illuminate how they collaboratively enhance the software development process.
As we focus to Platform Engineering, we'll explore its ability to transcend the capabilities of DevOps and GitOps, an integrated, solution that accommodates diverse stakeholder requirements, corporate policies, and governance constraints. We'll touch on the technical aspects of implementing a unified platform, its potential for enhancing collaboration, and the role of automation.
Quarkus, Langchain4J & Ollama
Conference (INTERMEDIATE level)
No one can avoid the Gen AI tsunami, and we, as developers, are in the front line for picking up this new cool kid on the block. Even if for historic reasons, AI has been mainly used with Python, people are starting to realize that in order to “industrialize” an AI project they could benefit from the whole Java ecosystem and in fact Java AI libraries are starting to join the party ! Join me in this 100% live coding session where I will show how you can benefit from Quarkus developer experience combined with the power of Langchain4j , aka the Hibernate of the LLMs. And we will also see how to make the local development loop possible using Ollama, aka the docker of LLMs.
