“Last year, for our inaugural Nexus User Conference, we decided to effectively open source our conference to bring our community together, rather than divide it by those with budget or a convenient geolocation. We had such incredible feedback, that we decided to do it again,” said Derek Weeks, VP and DevOps Advocate at Sonatype. “This year’s lineup brings an incredible opportunity for learning, knowledge sharing and direct access to some of the industry’s key visionaries.”

For those unable to attend live, all sessions will be recorded and available to watch on demand.
