A Deep Dive Into DevOps

"As DevOps continues to make inroads into organizations across the globe, these are the areas of greatest interest to the community in achieving DevOps success," explained Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution and co-author of The Phoenix Project and The DevOps Handbook. "We have built a deep program around these key topics with the best and brightest minds in the industry. Our goal is to offer attendees clear takeaways on how to address and implement positive change for DevOps success within their own organizations."

Several additions also have been made to this year's program in line with the theme "Deep Dive Into DevOps." They include:

- Introduction of Ignite Talks – seven of these discussions will take place where speakers have five minutes to present on a particular topic in an open forum session

- Bringing back workshops (there will be three), which were very popular last year, for more in-depth learning and to dive deeper into topics that require more time

- The addition of three speaker Q&A sessions – attendees can ask their most pressing questions witth selected speakers after their talks and glean more insights

- Free books – copies of ITT Revolution's latest additions to its publishing library will be offered, including signed copies of Mark Schwartz's "A Seat At The Table" and Dominica DeGrandis' "Making Work Visible"
