18:40 - 19:25 Sitecore in the Enterprise: Provisioning large scale environments for multi-label/teams and keeping them secure and cost-efficient - Alexander van Wolferen (Achmea)
How we at Achmea provision more than a dozen Production environments with over a hundred twenty Dev/Test/Acceptance environments for our labels and teams and how we manage and control them keeping them updated with all the latest security patches and efficiency innovations on a daily base. Azure comes with a certain price and every cent adds up. Keeping aware of that on an hourly base can and will save you lots of money which you can spent on a performant production environment.

19:35 - 20:20 Sitecore in the Enterprise: Deploying and building Sitecore with the speed of light using all the new love in Azure DevOps - Bas Lijten (Achmea)
A lot of teams and solutions bring a lot of challenges. In this session we will share our approach to build and deploy Sitecore with the speed of light, while keeping track of costs, quality, industry standards and, very important for financial organizations: control.
Our lessons learned in regards to challenges like large build and deploy queues, deployment speed, costs and standardization while keeping flexibility will be shared. Over the last year, Microsoft added quite some beneficial features to Azure DevOps which will help to overcome these challenges,
we will show how we used them to integrate them into the Sitecore build and deployment lifecycle In the end, you will be able to integrate these approaches in your own solution within a few minutes and you will be deploying the same way "as the big boys".
20:20 - 20:30 Break
20:30 - 21:15 No more Gulp! Deploy 50x faster using Helix Publishing Pipeline - Steve McGill (ParTech)
Follow the Helix principles with HPP, an approach which extends existing Visual Studio and command-line workflows. Make use of msbuild’s intelligent parallel builds and only building and deploying what has changed. Steve will take you through the features that solve the most common tasks we previously needed Gulp for.
