The conference lineup includes over 20 in-depth half-day and full-day tutorials, 5 captivating keynotes, over 50 individual sessions including an entire track of sessions (featuring the Best of DZone), plus an Expo chock-full of solution providers—featuring the latest and greatest innovations. In addition, your ticket will also get you access to the Agile + DevOps Leadership Summit and the DevSecOps Summit which are breakout events that allow for a deeper, more interactive workshop approach to the topics.
Here are just a few of the opportunities you can take advantage of at Agile + DevOps Virtual:
Keynotes and Sessions from Industry Leaders
Agile + DevOps Virtual keynotes will be inspiring and provide thought-provoking talks from industry veterans who have been in the trenches and lived to tell the tale. Dan Lines from Linear B will cover the freight train he felt when promoted to dev team lead during Promoted from Dev to Team Lead: 8 Things They Didn’t Tell Me. Patricia Kong of Scrum.org will guide on how to scale without destroying transparency during Scaling Scrum without Crushing Its Soul. Ahmed Sidky and Michael Robillard will explain the business agility practiced at Riot Games in their keynote The Business Agility Behind a Virtual Band that Topped Real-World Charts. Aimee Bechtle of S&P Global Market Intelligence will help us identify The Change You Need to Become a DevOps Organization and Dana Pylayeva of Agile Play Consulting will help work toward the psychological safety needed in Taking Your DevOps Culture to the Fourth Ideal.
The concurrent sessions will take place in 8 tracks, allowing you the opportunity to pick and choose the topics that mean most to you. With tracks like Best of DZone, DevOps Practices, Tools and Automation, and Agile Teams and Leadership, you are sure to find something right up your alley. Our session speakers come from a variety of backgrounds and industries, but all have one thing in common: a compelling story, lesson, or experience that made them a must-have for the event. Our speakers come from companies such as Spotify, Indeed.com, Coveros, Intel, Capital One, Ericsson, Samsung SDS, IBM, and more. One exciting bonus of having all this content in a virtual conference is that you don’t have to just pick one session per time period! Conference attendees will be offered 12 months of on-demand access after the event, allowing you to come back to re-watch favorites or catch up on the ones you have not yet seen.
Tutorials and Training
Ready to take a deep dive into specific topics or pain-points for your organization? Tutorials are a great way to do that. Held on Monday and Tuesday in half- and full-day formats, tutorials allow you the chance to focus on ways to make improvements to everyday processes in the areas that matter most to you. Tutorial topics at Agile + DevOps Virtual will include everything from hands-on workshops in Continuous Delivery, to Busting Myths Around Organizational Change and everything in between. With over 20 options to choose from, there’s something for just about everyone who is involved in software engineering. In addition to the tutorials, you can also sign up for a specially curated list of classes covering agile, DevOps, software testing, and test automation, as well as DevSecOps topics as an added enhancement to your conference experience.
Networking, Summits, and the Expo
Even though the event is happening online, that doesn’t lessen the networking opportunities. Agile + DevOps Virtual has lined up some great additional opportunities for conference attendees to take advantage of. Start your day off with morning yoga to relax your mind and prepare for a full day of learning on Wednesday and Thursday. The Expo will be open Wednesday and Thursday so you have the option to visit with some of the top solutions providers in the industry. Stop by the Expo booths to talk about the latest innovations, discuss challenges, explore demos, and register to win exciting prizes.
The Agile + DevOps Leadership Summit is a free add-on to your conference registration that will take place over 2 half-days. It will feature senior industry leaders, each with a unique perspective on leadership, who will provide Summit participants with lessons learned and practical techniques for leading teams, addressing management challenges, and gaining senior management buy-in.
The DevSecOps Summit is also a free add-on to your conference ticket. Its format is also two half-day sessions from experienced DevSecOps practitioners with lessons to share and stories to tell. This series of first-person talks will give you an ideal perspective on how you and your team can enable faster application development with more rapid deployment to production while integrating security into your DevOps initiatives.
