 January 31, 2019 at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET


Did you miss out on the sold-out DevOps Enterprise Summit? Or did you attend and want to hear more? Join us live on January 31, 2019 at 10:00 am PT/1:00 pm ET as Gene Kim presents two of his favorite speakers, John Willis and Damon Edwards, who will be delivering two of the highest rated talks from the conference. There will also be a Q&A session.

Reserve your spot today to hear these two leaders in the DevOps community reprise their DOES 2018 sessions:

  • Next Generation Infrastructure for Managers, John Willis
    A fresh and insightful look at the ongoing cloud-native developments and what it means for enterprise operations. John (Chef, Docker, Botchagalupe Technologies, author of DevOps Handbook) cuts through the hype and points out where to take note.
  • Operations: The Last Mile, Damon Edwards
    Why is it that some DevOps transformations stall while others continue to flourish? This talk will make the case that Operations is the most predictable differentiator. By not fully engaging with and transforming Operations, companies are preventing themselves from realizing the full potential of their DevOps investments.
