For the third year in a row, we held the annual DevOps Enterprise Forum virtually. For eight years, this forum has brought together the brightest minds in current DevOps, Agile, Lean thinking, and the new ways of working that are necessary to meet the challenges of the technological revolution.

This year, in addition to industry leaders and experts from across the enterprise technology sector, we welcomed two groups from the US Department of Defense to discuss the unique challenges the armed forces face in meeting the technological challenges of today and tomorrow. 

Over the course of the three days, this group worked together to identify and create written guidance for the top problems facing the technology community, including information security vulnerabilities like the Log4j supply chain event of 2021; the continued importance and challenges of effective modern leadership; the ongoing and evolving role of the platform; and much more. 

Additional thanks go to this year’s DevOps Enterprise Forum sponsor, LaunchDarkly.
