DevOps & Scalability On The Brain? O'Reilly Velocity Is This Week!

by Phil Dougherty

on June 19, 2017

Since 2008, the Velocity Conference has brought together web professionals from different backgrounds. Some work in web performance, web operations, and DevOps. If you think you are you serious about DevOps, Velocity attendees are ahead of the game. This year promises to bigger and better programs than previous conferences (even though that is a hard act to follow). The only way you will feel disappointed is if you miss it.

The World Of DevOps & Scalability

This is a culture that strives to bring teams together, teams of developers and operations teams. The focus is to develop and deploy software with maximum communication between teams, super-efficient practices, and with minimum disruption. DevOps has its own processes, tools, and practices but the reason DevOps is important is not because of any particular tools. It is about encouraging a work mentality that strives to leverage the appropriate tools that will improve software development. Think of it as building bridges between teams so that they work together more efficiently.

One of the results you can expect from DevOps innovation is the decreased cost in software development. It also means faster software releases, a reduction in software development failures and, where there are still failures, a faster recovery time. DevOps creates increased innovation opportunities and fostering a performance orientation instead of power plays between teams.

Everything you need to know about Velocity

Velocity will hold the 2017 conference in San Jose California on June 20-23, 2017 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Whether you are a practitioner, developer, system administrator or engineering manager, this conference is tailor-made for you.

Velocity's first two days devote themselves to deep subject training sessions. Velocity limits the attendance size of the sessions to maintain the education level and to provide communication opportunities between attendees and presenters and speakers. Speakers include Dianne Marsh of Netflix, Suman Karumuri of Pinterest, Ines Sombra of Fastly, Matt Klein of Lyft, Kelsey Hightower of Google, and many more.

The conference planners filled days three and four with keynote speakers and presentations. 

Get ahead of the game

This is the best conference for you to mingle with high level professionals and learn from your global colleagues. You will meet the experts and discuss with them the questions you've been burning to ask. You will share best practices ideas. You will hear case stories detailing lessons that others learned. You will learn how to build faster applications. This is a four-day conference packed with opportunities for learning and networking with other professionals. Make sure to visit the exhibit hall with dozens of the latest tools and products for you to buy or just window-shop.

Save time for socializing, too. There are evenings filled with fun events like the Ignite Velocity session on Tuesday evening or the DevOps & Development After Dark (sponsored by Atlassian, IBM, Netflix, and O'Reilly) at San Pedro Square Market on Wednesday evening. You will enjoy eating and greeting your fellow web professionals at the Birds of a Feather luncheons, too. Don't forget to close out your wonderful four-day experience at the closing reception on Thursday evening.
