Abstract: While engineers are increasingly aware of security requirements, in many organizations security remains the responsibility of Òthose security peopleÓ and is not tightly integrated into the development cycle. Productivity and feature goals can result in engineers focusing on deployment rather than on fixing non-critical security issues or on building security into a product, resulting in an increase of security technical debt. Attackers eagerly exploit the vulnerabilities lying in the security technical debt pile. Organizations can benefit from risk-based practices for shrinking this debt. This talk will present two research projects in which risk is being used to prioritize security mitigations. The first project is focused on reducing secrets and credentials that have been checked into a code base. The second project relates to the prioritization of patching the continuous onslaught of vulnerable components and libraries that comprise a product.

Abstract: If we consider the 19th century as the machine age, and the 20th century the information age, the 21st century will be the quantum age. In fact, from the beginning of the "second quantum revolution" from the eighties to the present, various algorithms and quantum computers based on different technologies have been proposed, which have managed to demonstrate their great advantage over "classical" computers. There are already numerous programming languages (qGCL, Q Language, QML, Quipper, OpenQASM, Qiskit, Q#), development environments (Forest, Qiskit, Cirq, QDK, Orquestra) and platforms (Quantum Inspire, IQ Experience, Quantum Playground, Forge, LIQUi |>, etc.). However, it is not enough, it is necessary to go one step further and be aware of the need for a true "Quantum Software Engineering", in order to produce quantum software with adequate quality and productivity. To this end we promote the “Talavera Manifesto for Quantum Software Engineering and Programming”. The conference will expose the challenges and opportunities that quantum software must address in this regard.

Abstract: ARM dominates the processor market as it is used in all mobile phones. This domain has become more established now that Apple has announced that it will start using its own ARM processors in all of its computers. Some of us will remember how only a decade ago this was not the case and rather CISC, through Intel, is what predominated. In this talk, we will talk about how the architecture of processors has evolved since the 50s, placing special emphasis on architectures that were thought for decades and that are re-emerging or that have simply been forgotten, but that could have a great impact on the future. During this 60-year journey, we will discover fascinating things that will help us better understand what is ahead, including the new quantum processors.

Abstract: A new reality has started where technology has taken on a new role in our daily lives. This has led the IT professional to develop new skills for the design, construction and operation of systems. Looking for products with greater added value of technology and more efficient in their function, at the lowest possible costs. How to adapt to changing scenarios? What are the tools of the future in the IT market? What skills are in demand? This conference is about challenges and opportunities for those in the world of Software Engineering, since they have a crucial role in this new era.

Abstract: DevOps is a discipline used in the field of ICT that suggests the use of certain techniques, technologies and tools to productively and efficiently manage the process of development, testing and deployment of computer applications by automating processes and optimizing others. . For several years, this discipline has become relevant in the field of Software development and involves practices that ensure the generation of higher quality Software, such as continuous integration, continuous deployment, peer review flows in versioned and managed code in branches, and the automation of the execution of unit tests, among other mechanisms closely related to the concept of devOps. On the other hand, educational programs in general should bring students closer to the reality of our current performance context. In particular, students of ICT-related careers must know, understand and practice what the current market is demanding, since with a typically traditional training their technological offer could be uninteresting for their future employers. In this talk, the inclusion of the devOps discipline in the academic curriculum is proposed, such inclusion is justified and a tentative study program for this discipline is offered.
