DevSecOps Day at RSAC 2018 - Who Will be There

The DevSecOps Tribe continues to thrive as we plunge into 2018. At RSA Conference 2018, we'll all get together to hear the latest from DevSecOps practitioners who have succeeded, failed and everything else in-between. The day starts with Shannon Lietz giving an overview of the history of DevSecOps, leading into "Security is the Center of a DevOps World", a story based discussion where Shannon, Paula Thrasher and Caroline Wong  bring decades of war stories to the table as practitioners on the front lines of software security.

The rest of the day features sessions hosted by well known DevOps advocates John Willis, Damon Edwards, Courtney Kissler, Derek Weeks and James Wickett. Each host will introduce a new session by featuring an upcoming member of the community who has a story to tell. The day concludes with Stephanie DerdouriLisa Phillips, Syamla Bandla, and Chenxi Wang focusing on "DevSecOps – It’s a People Thing".

DevSecOps Day is on the opening day of RSA Conference 2018, Monday, April 16. You can receive a complimentary ticket to the event by choosing "Expo Hall Pass" and entering the code 18UDEVOPSXP. The $100 fee will be waived at checkout, and you'll have access to the entire day of DevSecOps sessions as well as the ability to explore the conference expo hall for the rest of the week.

It's a full day of real world DevSecOps stories, with practitioners talking to their peers. Please register early, we were near capacity last year and I'd hate to see you miss out.
