As a vendor-neutral conference, DevOps Enterprise Summit curates stories that are from the enterprise point-of-view. Most of the presentations follow a very specific “experience report” structure—each speaker describes their organization and their industry, the business problem they faced, where they started their transformation, what they did, and the business outcomes. It’s a simple format but very powerful because it helps other people facing the same problems learn how other people solved the problem, and it often reveals practices that can be used in other contexts.
We’re excited to announce some of our speakers for the conference coming up in June:
Director of Cloud Product Engineering
Head of Test
Senior Software Engineer
Puppet Labs, Inc; ex-UK GDS
SVP, Platform and Technical Operations
Head of Development Services
Chief Digital Strategist
Distinguished Engineer, Chief Architect for DevOps for Enterprise System
Director, Systems Engineering
The Walt Disney Company
What also amazes me about DevOps Enterprise is the concentration of talent in the technology leaders who attend; they’re all people who are passionate about technology and helping teams win, and willing to do disruptive things in order to get there.
Ross Clanton from Target told me he valued being surrounded by people who were not only trying to solve the same problems that he was facing, but there’s a huge intrinsic value of being surrounded by the best in the game. I can definitely relate; I learn something in every one of my interactions at the conference, and I have no doubt that the practices this group is pioneering will be commonplace within a generation.
Like in any aspect of life, peers are important. As Buzz Aldrin said, “Show me your friends, and I will show you your future.”
DOES is a unique opportunity to meet some very talented and inspirational new friends who can help shape your career path. We hope you’ll join us in London.
