Leaders in the software space look forward to sharing how they’re working towards continuous delivery, and what can be done to continue that progress in the future. We’re excited to bring together a growing community of software innovators to learn, belong and collaborate.

LaunchDarkly has announced the speaker lineup and agenda for Trajectory LIVE Conference 2020. This year the conference will be hosted on August 26-27, online as a live streaming event. Trajectory Conference focuses on how teams use modern development practices so they can continuously deliver the experiences their users have come to expect.

LaunchDarkly’s feature management platform currently has more than 1,300 customers globally, and serves more than three trillion feature flags each day. The company has seen that when development teams and business stakeholders collaborate effectively, they are ultimately able to make better software, faster.

“We’re thrilled to announce Trajectory once again! We want to provide a platform for the software community to explore how they can continue to improve software processes,” said Edith Harbaugh, co-founder and CEO of LaunchDarkly. “It’s wonderful to see so many organizations share their own success stories.”

TrajectoryLIVE will feature speakers who are pioneering modern development practices. Emily Freeman, Senior Cloud Advocate at Microsoft, will deliver a keynote focusing on DevOps, what it means as a concept and how teams can use people, process and tools to empower software delivery. And James Governor, Principal Analyst and Co-Founder of RedMonk, will share how the new term Progressive Delivery came to be.

In addition to talks and sessions with LaunchDarkly leadership – including co-founders Edith Harbaugh and John Kodumal – various sessions will be led by well-known software leaders including Michael McKay, Senior Development Manager at IBM; Liz Fong-Jones, Developer Advocate at Honeycomb; and Aaron Kraft, Director of DevOps and Test Engineering at H&R Block.

Attendees can expect to hear learnings and best practices, participate in open forum discussions, as well as network with peers. Community members familiar with LaunchDarkly’s Meetup, Test in Production, will appreciate the similarities in topics covered and engaging format. The agenda includes sessions on observability, release practices, hypothesis-driven development, chaos engineering, continuous deployment, and Progressive Delivery.

“Leaders in the software space look forward to sharing how they’re working towards continuous delivery, and what can be done to continue that progress in the future,” said John Kodumal, CTO & Co-Founder of LaunchDarkly. “We’re excited to bring together a growing community of software innovators to learn, belong and collaborate.”

LaunchDarkly has decided to provide free access to this live streaming event. “We were so excited to bring this rich content to our customers and community, we weren’t ready to cancel the event outright,” said Zena Davé, Experiential Marketing Manager. “We are pleased that we have been able to keep our original speaker lineup, and can now share these sessions with an even broader audience. People can tune in from where-ever they are, for free!”

Trajectory Conference will kick off with our Trajectory Nano Series on July 29th. This will consist of 4 short coffee break-sized sessions, that will take place each Wednesday until the main event. On August 26-27, Trajectory LIVE will showcase 2 half days of talks and interactive sessions.
