Presby will moderate the program "Advocacy Track, Making the Case—Experts and Evidence: Using Daubert Effectively."  Attendees will learn how to effectively prepare and use experts in the wake of high hurdles created by various court interpretations of the decision in Daubert v. Merrell Dow Pharmaceuticals.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to share my trial experience and to help other attorneys learn how to get the most out of expert witnesses," Presby said. "Used effectively, experts are powerful tools that can deliver a significant advantage for clients.  Even with the boundaries set by Daubert, expert testimony is necessary to help juries understand the issues." 

Presby is a sought-after speaker with nearly three decades of litigation experience. She holds multiple legal victories against major corporations, including a role in a $1.275 billion pharmaceutical class action settlement, and she was recently appointed to the plaintiff's steering committee for a major multidistrict pharmaceutical litigation. She specializes in personal injury and product liability cases and stands at the cutting edge of pharmaceutical law and trial techniques.

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the ste...
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
