DevOps Down Under 2013: Brings Together Some of the Best Developers and IT Professionals

August 28, 2013 In The Media, General

June, 2013: There is just three weeks left until DevOps Down Under returns to Australian shores in Sydney on 12-to-13 July 2013. The highly anticipated event has released its program of leading speakers in technical development and operations.

DevOps is a response to the interdependence of software development and IT operations, which often have contradicting goals or priorities – the impact often being a slow down in delivery of projects or new services, features and products. DevOps helps organisations to overcome this by rapidly producing software products and services, and the movement in Australia and New Zealand is quickly growing, as organisations realise the benefits of the approach.

Following a popular global format, DevOps Down Under brings together software developers engineers, and technology (IT) operations professionals from Australia and New Zealand. The focus of the event is to share information and collaborate around an in-depth program of topics and conversations.

Running over two days the event provides the platform to inform and debate a range of pertinent topics and case studies including Learning Cultures, Quantifying Personal Value (and get that pay rise!), the Dungeons & Dragons Framework for DevOps, Creating a Service-Oriented (IT) Utopia, Mi9’s Triumph Over Adversity and more!

DevOps Down Under co-organiser and CEO of Anchor, Keiran Holloway, said “DevOps Down Under is unique in its ability to fuse development and operations together. This year we are proud to have such an outstanding level of speakers who are sure to drive discussion around topics affecting web developers and administrators in the ever challenging environment of online business.”

Headline speakers at the conference include Andrew Clay Shafer, Co-Founder of Puppet Labs; Stephen Burton, Technical Evangelist at AppDynamics; Matt Palmer, CTO at Anchor; Lindsay Holmwood, Software Manager at Bulletproof Networks; David Lutz, DevOps Engineer at 99designs; Sebastian Cole, Infrastructure Engineer at Mi9 and Sam Newman, Principal Consultant at ThoughtWorks.

There is also a strong emphasis on Open Space meetings throughout the conference designed to extract ideas and promote productivity and communication.
