IT Revolution Announces Speakers for 2017 DevOps Enterprise Summit London
February 15, 2017

IT Revolution announced its first round of speakers and new programming options for the 2017 DevOps Enterprise Summit London (DOES17).

The DevOps Enterprise Summit London conference is the premier industry event for leaders of large, complex organizations implementing DevOps in the UK and Continental Europe.

Scheduled for June 5 through 6 at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Early Bird registration is now open through March 8 and is highly encouraged, as the popular DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco event has sold out each year.

DOES17 features presentations from leading global brands that leverage DevOps to thrive within an increasingly software-driven economy. DevOps Enterprise Summit provides keynotes, breakout sessions, workshops and an expo hall. The keynotes feature industry subject matter experts, as well as speakers from well-known companies who share the learnings from their enterprise DevOps initiatives.

The first speakers to be included in the DOES17 London program include:

- Jonathan Fletcher, CTO, Hiscox

- Robert Scherrer, Head Application Engineering, SIX

- Jonathan Smart, Head of Development Services, Barclays

After a successful debut at the DOES16 San Francisco conference this past November, the DevOps Enterprise Summit will bring the DevOps Workshops to its London conference. The 60-minute, small-group discussions are based on the"Lean Coffee" format, with a structure that includes trained facilitators, democratic selection of topics and rigorously enforced time-boxing of each topic, to ensure that each small group achieves its learning objectives and fosters open and healthy dialogue.

In addition, to help further enable high-fidelity interactions and learning in the community, DOES17 London also is adding "Ask an Expert" Q&A sessions. Throughout the conference, there will be scheduled opportunities for delegates to ask speakers specific questions. These 30-minute sessions will allow delegates to glean specific insights from the experts and to learn from each other.

"I'm so excited about our fourth DevOps Enterprise Summit, and our second year in London. We have an amazing line-up of both repeat speakers, who will share the continuation of their DevOps journey, and new case studies from organizations we haven't yet heard from," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution and co-author of The Phoenix Project and The DevOps Handbook. "We are also adding workshops and creating a new 'Ask The Experts' format to enable attendees to ask their questions to the speakers and experts. This conference is all about enabling professional development and networking, to help technology leaders succeed. I'm delighted because so many attendees tell me about the collaboration and relationships that result from each of the DevOps Enterprise Summits."
