Free DevOps

Free DevOps

On November 15th, Mark Miller and I along with about 100 friends pulled off the unimagineable. We built a the world’s largest DevOps conference from the ground up in 90 days and over 13,500 people registered to attend.

How did we do it? That’s an entirely different post. But the TL;DR is that it’s a testament of the DevOps community at work. People want to learn, share, and innovate.

Why would so many people show up? Well, it was free and it was big. We pulled together 57 speakers across three tracks and 17 hours of continuous programming. We also had some basic requirements: (1) you must be a practitioner and (2) no vendor pitches. The three tracks were: CI/CD, Automated Security, and Modern Infrastructure.

Who spoke? You know some of these folks already. Others you don’t yet, but should.

If you already know what DevOps is and want to learn from real practitioners with true stories from the trenches, it’s all here.

All 57 sessions from the All Day DevOps conference were recorded. If you register for the conference, you can watch every one of them for free.

Have a look. Share with your friends. And keep a look out for the 2017 All Day DevOps call for papers coming soon.
