DevOpsDays Silicon Valley is coming, so mark your calendar! DevOpsDays events are a global phenomenon, bringing together practitioners across roles for two days of scheduled presentations and networking in a community-organized event. You won’t want to miss this year’s conference!
The 7th annual DevOpsDays Silicon Valley is scheduled for June 24-25 at the world-famous Computer History Museum. Silicon Valley is the oldest of the U.S. events and was originally the third DevOps Days ever. The conference, which started in 2010 as a low-key event hosted on the campus of LinkedIn, has grown into a major event.
This year’s lineup includes talks from a variety of perspectives including security! Jennifer Davis, co-author of “Effective DevOps,” will open the conference up with “Devops is for Everyone.”
