10 Must-Attend DevOps Conferences in 2018


One of the key ways to get "In the Know" for all things DevOps is by attending one of the many conferences aimed at educating developers, engineers, and all technical professionals on best practices and newest innovations in the DevOps realm. Whether you’re looking for new tools to implement, application building guidance, security tips, information on cloud software and storage, serverless infrastructure, automation, or something else on your list, these conferences bring together industry leaders and experts to share their wealth of knowledge. OpsGenie attends some of these events ourselves, and we’d love to see you there!


Multiple cities worldwide across multiple dates 



Organized by decentralized volunteers, DevOpsDays take place in multiple cities worldwide. Organizers handle event details, sponsorships, and speaking opportunities individually per DevOpsDays location. These events focus on the sphere of software development and IT infrastructure operations and range from 150 to 800 attendees, but usually landing around 300-500 people at any given DevOpsDays. They yield opportunities to attend workshops, round table discussions, or participate in the audience for curated talks given by IT experts. Access their website for each individual DevOpsDays to see their programming for the event including speakers and sponsors. Contact a specific DevOpsDay of interest to pursue speaking or sponsorship opportunities for your company. If there’s not one in your area, check out the information to organize your own! OpsGenie is attending DevOpsDays in Baltimore, Denver, Atlanta, and Seattle to start off 2018 (with more planned). We will also be hosting a presentation on DevOps in a Serverless World at DevOpsDays Zurich on May 2-3.
