DevOpsDaysDC returns to Washington DC June 7 and 8, 2016. Come share ideas on high velocity IT with peers in private sector and government; Call For Presentations on Continuous Improvement Extended to April 18.

Last year had over 400 amazing attendees and DC area companies and federal agencies.

DevOps Days will return to the DC metro area, June 7 and 8, at the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in Alexandria, Virginia. This event will bring together a diverse audience of professionals and industry leaders from the public and private sector who are adopting DevOps practices and principles.

The deadline for proposals to present on Continuous Improvement and better collaboration has been extended to Monday April, 18, 2016, just like the Federal Tax filing, to give you three days to get your returns filed and talks submitted.

“A house divided against Itself cannot stand,” this year’s theme, will be exemplified through two days of scheduled presentations, ignite talks, and open space conversations. This event is designed for executives, program managers, and engineers considering or actively implementing DevOps at their organization.

The second annual two-day event is sure to invite many in­-depth discussions on how to continuously improve DevOps practices across the businesses and missions of attendees serving both private and public sector. Organizers are encouraging attendees, speakers, and sponsors of the event to openly discuss the successful milestones and changes their organizations are implementing along their path to DevOps.

DevOpsDays events bring unbelievable value for the $100 ticket price that covers both days and evening social events. Its aim is to bring together practitioners to share immediately useful insights and practices. What’s it like to attend DevOpsDays?

“Last year had over 400 amazing attendees and DC area companies and federal agencies have continued to adopt the faster, more collaborative, delivery-oriented DevOps culture. We are really excited to see and share the latest developments in this adopt or be left behind space.”, stated Nathen Harvey, Conference Chair, DevOpsDays DC and Community Director, Chef Software, Inc.

About DevOps and DevOps Days

DevOps (a portmanteau of "development" and "operations") is a software development method that stresses communication, collaboration (information sharing and web service usage), integration, automation and measurement of cooperation between software developers and other information­ technology (IT) professionals. DevOps acknowledges the interdependence of software development, quality assurance, and IT operations, and aims to help an organization rapidly produce software products and services and to improve operations performance.1

DevOpsDays is a technical conference, aimed at developers, sysadmins, architects and anyone else involved in technology, whether expert or beginner. The term "DevOps" was popularized through a series of DevOps Days starting in 2009 in Belgium. Since then, there have been DevOpsDays conferences held in many countries worldwide.2http://www.devopsdays.com
