Community panel - Trigger phrases, controversy and a bit of ranting
Blockchain has no applications, and it's just hype. Angular is more opinionated, and that's why large corporations prefer it over React. Kubernetes is the Linux of the cloud-native world. Every month there is a new DevOps tool that will save your deployment pipeline. We hear and read these controversial statements very often and a lot of fierce commentaries about them. Blog posts, opinions, and discussions on Reddit or real life are part of the "ranting" culture around software engineers. Join this panel and listen to what our panelists have to say about trigger phrases.

Lian always wanted to save the world. After a failed attempt at becoming a lawyer, she decided to do something with computers instead. Currently, Lian works as Software Engineer at Container Solutions, a consultancy focused on cloud-native infrastructure based in Amsterdam. In her free time, she enjoys working on dev related projects from machine learning to hardware hacking.
Thiago started in Pure Mathematics, jumped to predicting things and realized it was utterly dependent on understanding the inner bits of software development and data pipelines. Thus, his primary concern changed: how to bridge the gap between ML and production? :-) *DataOps FTW!* He is an active part of the community (devopsdays Amsterdam, ITNEXT & Codemotion), a knowledge-sharer, a proud father and a DataOps Lead. Thiago is pathologically curious and a continuous learner. He knows that high-performing data teams must decrease time-to-market and build production-ready applications, always!
