Each year DevOps World | Jenkins World is bigger and better than the year before. This means the announcements at the show also continue to evolve to keep pace with the rate of innovation. With the tremendous growth in DevOps adoption, the event will highlight the contributions of industry leaders and provide insight for attendees to better optimize their DevOps transformations. This year’s conference, taking place Sept. 16-19 in San Francisco and aptly themed “TRANSFORM,” will showcase the ways organizations are transforming software delivery, adopting DevOps and returning business value to their organization from DevOps initiatives.
CloudBees has already released two big pieces of news for DevOps World | Jenkins World: The first is the name change from simply Jenkins World to denote the inclusion of the larger software development industry, while the second is the addition of a conference in Nice, France, to reach the global community of DevOps practitioners.
Although most news is top secret until the event, there will be plenty of exciting announcements coming out of DevOps World | Jenkins World from CloudBees, sponsors and the Jenkins community. Attendees will experience keynote presentations on Tuesday, Sept. 18, where all the latest from both CloudBees and the Jenkins project will be announced. This will include news around the growing trend of “as-code,” collaboration between CloudBees and the Jenkins community and serverless capabilities. All announcements will underscore how organizations can adopt modern technology and infrastructure automation processes for accelerated software delivery.
Along with CloudBees-specific and industry announcements, Dr. Nicole Forsgren, co-founder, CEO and chief scientist at DevOps Research and Assessment (DORA), will keynote the conference in San Francisco this year. In addition to her keynote, “The Data Behind DevOps: What Does it Take to Be a High Performer?,” which will cover insights into the key leadership, technical, architectural and product capabilities that drive these outcomes, she will also be hosting a session, “Leading Through Change,” which explores the aspects of leadership that drive successful outcomes.
