10 Reasons Why All Day DevOps 2017 is Awesome!

The second annual All Day DevOps 2017 virtual conference is happening today.

Not only is this a big day for Sonatype and for our terrific sponsors including Puppet, XebiaLabs, CloudBees, Red Hat, Sauce Labs, Micro Focus, VictorOps, and Carnegie Mellon -- but this is an awesome day for the global DevOps community with more than 30,000 practitioners coming together to share stories, practices and tips for accelerating software innovation in a safe and responsible manner.

So, without further ado, here are the top 10 reasons why ADDO is awesome:

  1. Ultra marathon of content delivered in 24 hours.
  2. 30,000 attendees from around the globe.
  3. Largest conference of it’s kind in the world.
  4. Visionary presentations from more than 100 world class innovators.
  5. Grass roots support from 250 DevOps community groups across the globe.
  6. 46 live viewing parties in 18 different countries.
  7. Ranks #8 in google organic search for “DevOps Conference”.
  8. More than 25 organizations had more than 50 employees in attendance.
  9. Ridiculously cool gifts for all speakers.
  10. Founded just 18 months ago by our very own Derek Weeks and Mark Miller.

A remarkable event.  A remarkable community.  A remarkable team made it possible.  I am honored to call them my colleagues.
