What is
DevOpsDays?

The term "DevOps" was popularized thanks to a series of "DevOpsDays" conferences.

The first edition of this Conference was held in Belgium in 2009. Since then, DevOpsDays conferences have spread across the globe.

icon

Presentations

Anyone can submit a presentation via the Call for Papers. DevopsDays Program Council will choose the best presentations among these submissions, which will appear in the agenda of the conference

icon

Open Space

The openspace format is a very interesting, simple and succeed one. A moment before the openspace starts, all attendees vote on what topic is the most wanted and the most interesting. After this participants can create discussion groups on topics most important to them.

icon

Ignites

The ignite talks are a valuable portion of knowledge, lasting for 5 minutes. Slides change automatically every 15 seconds. Every slide focuses on the specific topic from the DevOps field and gives a condensed overview.

    photo

    Mandi Walls

    Incident response is something you hope to never need, but when you do, you want it to go smoothly and seamlessly. Normally the knowledge of how to handle incidents within your company will be built up over time, getting better with each incident. While tools such as PagerDuty can help you recover quickly, the process you follow is just as important. Regardless of the tools you use, having a clear plan for what to do when an incident happens will help your team mobilize, organize, and coordinate during incidents.

    Cluster.dev is an open-source tool designed to manage Cloud Native Infrastructures with simple declarative manifests - infrastructure templates. The infrastructure templates could be based on Terraform modules, Kubernetes manifests, Shell scripts, Helm charts, ArgoCD/Flux applications, OPA policies etc... Cluster.dev sticks those components together so that you could deploy, test and distribute a whole set of components with pinned versions.

    Documenting an Agile Team - how to keep up" [en]

    photo

    Alanna Burke

    One of the biggest hurdles that documentation writers face in maintaining documentation is staying on top of everything as it changes. We need to know what’s going on in the organization to be aware of pending changes to the code, so we’re not blindsided by code changes that may break documentation links, and cause docs to be incorrect or outdated. Sometimes it can feel like we’re just trying to catch up with what everyone else has done, which can be exhausting and frustrating. Ideally, engineers would update the documentation as they update code or add functionality, or work with you to update them as the coded feature is being worked on, but that doesn't always happen. Additionally, the documentation team often has a better grasp of what is important to document for the end user, and is the team that bridges the knowledge gap between the engineers and the end users.
