DevOps Institute Announces 2021 SKILup Days Virtual Conference Lineup
February 09, 2021

DevOps Institute, a global professional association for advancing the human elements of DevOps, announced its monthly lineup of complementary SKILup Days for all members of the IT community, including students, practitioners and decision makers.

SKILup Days are one-day virtual micro-conferences focused on specific industry practices that examine "how-to" perspectives of the people, process, and technology aspects of IT.

SKILup Days include all the elements usually found at a conference, including an expo hall with virtual sponsor booths, raffles and scavenger hunts, attendee chats, and a networking lounge to interact with speakers.

"SKILup Days were a bright light for the DevOps community in 2020, and we're thrilled to start them up again," said Jayne Groll, CEO of DevOps Institute. "The 'how-to' learning led by subject domain experts, the community building among DevOps humans, and the insights into the latest industry innovations, make each SKILup Day a vital opportunity to connect and grow from anywhere in the world."
