We hope you enjoyed DevOps Days "From Home Edition" this May!

We planned this event as a bonus for our big offline happening. Unfortunately, due to well-known reasons, this is not going to happen.

We value the health of our community and don't want to put the attendees of DevOps Days Kyiv at risk by holding an offline event this fall.

Another major cause of this disappointing decision is the fact that countries all over the Globe still have various travel restrictions in place. Therefore, we won't be able to bring to the stage all bright talents that we want as well as we won't be able to welcome our guests from outside Ukraine.

What does it mean for you? It means that we won't have DevOps Days Kyiv 2020 this September as planned before. Our next event will take place on 14-15 May 2021. We have already taken steps to book these dates.

📌 All the tickets for the 2020 event remain valid. However, if you want a refund, please, contact our partner - 2event directly (support@2event.com).

We don't have a LineUp for the upcoming even yet. We will try our best to bring the brightest technical talents to the capital of Ukraine as usual!

Stay tuned & stay safe!

event title

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.

All conferences run on a similar formula and are divided into three elements:






Open Space

  1. 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

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Influencing DevOps without Authoritiy - how "DevOps engineer" can advance real DevOps   

You know about DevOps, you know DevOps is right for your organization, but hey, what can you do? As an individual contributor or a team leader, your authority to transform your organization to DevOps is limited. But your influence is not!
In this talk, Baruch will show how some proven influencing and negotiating techniques can be used to convince critical stakeholders in your organization in the necessity of DevOps.
We look at the arguments, the techniques, and the small tricks, which work in particular situations with particular engineering and business leadership positions and will prepare you to deliver the message of DevOps most convincingly to each.

Transform your Security Practices with DevOps

DevOps is not just about deploying software, it’s about reducing bottlenecks and bringing value to the business. By utilizing DevOps techniques we can build a strong security practice that everybody is invested in, even your Developers and Operations Teams! In a previous role, I utilized DevOps practices to lead a major transformation of the security and auditing practices of our team taking them from failure-prone manual repetitive tasks to fully automated unicorn status. This talk will outline the changes we made both technically and culturally to transform not only the security team but the whole organization into treating security as a design goal rather than an afterthought.

Terraform, Pulumi, AWS CDK... but what do we really need!?

We may have too many good options to choose from, aren’t we? “Terraform is going to be replaced with Pulumi” – I was told. Well, I suppose that Pulumi will be replaced with what users actually WANT to use… My observations in infrastructure as management tooling in 5 minutes.

Power of the community

You can achieve a lot with a little help from your friends. Like a lot a lot! Kyiv already has a great DevOps community, but what can we do better? How a single person can contribute to it? It’s not just about the code or open-source, everyone can bring the value in many ways! It’s easy and fun!

How to Build a Team of Kubernetes Experts

This talk is about which process we created at N26 to build a team that previously didn’t have experience with Kubernetes into a team of experts. What were the tools and processes that we used to gain knowledge, share it, document it, get hands on experience with it and how that helped us to avoid big failures by catching many of those before they actually happened in war days environments.

About speaker

Lead SRE at N26 with 10+ years of experience in tech industry.


Cultural aspect of DevOps

Why the most of DevOps transformations fail? What’s wrong with DevOps? We tend to focus on transformation itself a lot, instead of solving a real business problem. As stated in Conway’s law organizations tend to produce designs/software which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations. In other words, how we are organized is an important part of any transformation. Also in order to make progress with your transformation, you need to know what you are comparing against and what are your measures of success. In this talk, I would like to share how your organization can benefit from introducing DevOps as a mindset and how as a leader you can coach and support your team to enable it.

Dealing with the Myth of the Work Life Balance

Most, if not all, IT professionals have bought into the idea of work-life balance the moment they’ve accepted their first job in the industry. We’ve succumbed to the realities of carrying a pager, responding to emails with our smartphones, working during the weekends and burning the midnight oil to get the next big IT project rolled out. This, coupled with fighting fires on a regular basis makes us feel that we need to get a life and wait for the next scheduled vacation getaway. In this session, learn about the P.D.A. Principle that Edwin discovered after losing most of his hair from too much stress. As a fourth-generation workaholic, Edwin decided to embark on a journey to discover the secrets of highly productive professionals while keeping stress levels to a minimum. We’ll ditch the idea of work-life balance, focus on what’s really important and regain control of our lives.

DevOps Evolution: moving an ops focused team to become a development team

Over an eight-month period, our organization formed a dedicated internal DevOps team. This team initially focused on fighting the fires currently in production and dedicated to improving the reliability of services in the company. The team’s focus was shifted from not just keeping things up, but eventually improving the experience for our own developers. In this talk, attendees will learn about the cultural changes that took place going from reactive operations to being dedicated to improving overall reliability across the technology organization. We’ll look at some of the internal tools we’ve developed to reduce developer onboarding time and support toil. Automation related to provisioning resources and AWS accounts.
