IT Revolution announced the DevOps Enterprise Summit Las Vegas 2020 will be going virtual.
The scheduled dates and times for the summit are now October 13-15, 2020 in the Pacific Timezone.
Amidst growing concern surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, IT Revolution has updated registration deadlines and cancellation policies accordingly. Registration ($650) will be limited to 3,000 attendees to ensure the Slack channels and group networking sessions for the event are not overwhelmed.
DevOps Enterprise Summit is a conference for technology leaders and practitioners at large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes the next-generation operations and infrastructure needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.
The virtual Las Vegas event features keynotes, panels, breakouts, a community space for spontaneous gatherings, and other networking and collaborative activities to enhance the virtual learning experience for attendees. Sessions will be led by leaders who are pioneering these practices in large and complex organizations across a wide range of industries.
"Great physical conferences are magical — you learn from incredible talks, feel surrounded by the best in the game, and find fellow travelers who share similar goals and experience similar struggles to conquer together. The connections I have made at conferences often lead to lifelong friendships and changed my career," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Unicorn Project, and co-author of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook and Accelerate. "We're so proud that we were able to create these experiences for our attendees in our first Virtual DevOps Enterprise Summit attendees in June — we're now planning our second virtual event this year, to replace our Las Vegas event, and we're aiming to make it even better than our first!"
The Virtual DevOps Enterprise Summit Las Vegas programming will include:
- Experience reports from KeyBank, Deloitte, T-Mobile, Microsoft and more
- New networking sessions utilizing the virtual format;
- Virtual book signings by well-known industry authors;
- Interest-based video networking, whereby attendees can select and engage with and ask questions of other attendees or speakers;
- Birds-of-a-Feather gatherings for finding like-minded peers;
- Lean Coffee, a hands-on workshop and interchange between participants;
- Virtual Happy Hours for some informal networking, and more.
