All Day DevOps Conference: Bringing DevOps to the World

An Audacious Plan

The global audience for DevOps is expanding faster than any one person or company can keep up with. While DevOps Days and other regional events provide invaluable support to their local communities, we want to create a global event, offering the best lineup of speakers.  We also wanted to make sure that anyone, anywhere can attend -- so we set a high bar for our organizing team...and they delivered: $0 registration.

By creating an online event, we are able to get many people to attend and present, who would not ordinarily be available because of time or travel restrictions.  We expect well over 1,000 people to attend throughout the day.


15 Time Zones, 15 Hours, 3 Keynotes, 54 Sessions

November 15, 2016 will see the first truly global, online DevOps Conference: All Day DevOps. Starting at 9:00am GMT, London (5:00am EST, New York), continuing through 12:00 midnight GMT, London (8:00pm EST, New York), there will be three, simultaneous tracks, each track containing 18, 30-minute presentations, for a total of 27 hours of presentations.

We are inviting speakers from around the world to participate in this first of its kind event, covering 15 time zones. Timing for the conference is set for the EMEA sessions to begin at 9:00am London time, then, at 9:30am EST, move the concentration of presentations to the East Coast of the USA, ending with presentations in the West Coast of the USA starting at 11:00am PST. All sessions will be recorded, but you will need to register for the event in order to have access to the recordings.

Conference Tracks

There are three tracks: Modern Infrastructure, Automated Security and CI/CD. We’ll have 54 sessions plus 3 keynotes, on three tracks, running continuously for 15 hours.

Track One: Modern Infrastructure

Modern Infrastructure Track Host and Moderator, James Wickett, Signal Sciences joined by Ernest Mueller, AlienVault and Karthik Gaekwad, Oracle

In this track, we will be discussing novel architectures, approaches, and tools for building out software and services. We are not looking for the standard approaches, but the way Infrastructure will be in the next 3-5 years.

Track Two: DevSecOps & Automated Security - Living the Dream

Automated Security Track Hosts Milton Smith, Oracle and Shannon Lietz, Intuit

You have a well tuned development and delivery environment or your in the process of building one. AppSec is a top business concern. You moved DevSecOps from Big Foot and UFO’s to reality, you sold the dream to staff, and now it’s beginning to pay off. This track explores DevSecOps tools and techniques to build a successful automated security program.

Track Three: CI/CD - Continuous Everything

CI/CD Track Host and Moderator Derek Weeks, Sonatype and Andi Mann, Splunk

Continuous Delivery is not magic, but it does take the right effort. The most successful practitioners have taken pragmatic steps to reduce cycle times, improve collaboration, and build quality in without burning people out. This track asks you to share your front line experiences of building CI/CD pipelines, aligning key stakeholders, and measuring the results. Remember, what’s now an everyday experience for you, is awesome to other’s pursuing that path.
