All Day DevOps: Bringing DevOps to the World

All Day DevOps - November 15, 2016

Update: Pre-conference registration is open.

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 wanted to create a global event, offering the very best lineup of speakers across North America, Europe and Asia.

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 All Day DevOps as an online event, we are able to get many people to attend and present—many of whom ordinarily would not 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

Nov. 15 will see the first truly global, online DevOps Conference: All Day DevOps. Starting at 9 a.m. Greenwich Mean Time/5 a.m. Eastern Standard Time and continuing through midnight GMT/8 p.m. EST, there will be three simultaneous tracks, each track containing 18, 30-minute presentations, for a total of 27 hours of presentations.

Call for Papers

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 a.m. GMT, then, at 9:30 a.m. EST, move the concentration of presentations to the east coast of the United States and ending with presentations on the west coast of the United States starting at 11 a.m. PST. All sessions will be recorded, but you will need to register for the event to have access to the recordings.

The Call for Papers is now live. Please submit your paper soon. The deadline for submissions is Sept. 21.

Conference Tracks

The conference will host three tracks: Modern Infrastructure, Automated Security and CI/CD. We’ll have 54 sessions plus three keynotes on three tracks, running continuously for 15 hours.

Track One: Modern Infrastructure

Modern Infrastructure Track Hosts and Moderators: 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 three to five years.

Track Two: DevSecOps & Automated Security — Living the Dream

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

You have a well-tuned development and delivery environment or you’re in the process of building one. AppSec is a top business concern. You moved DevSecOps from Big Foot and UFOs 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 Hosts and Moderators: 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 frontline 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 another pursuing that path.
