16 DevOps conferences in 2018 that are worth a look

    In general, there are much more such conferences, but these can be called flagship. They take place in different parts of the world and of course I do not urge them to personally attend. What is the use? Watching videos, audio or presentations can help to discern technological innovations, the general vector of technology movement and, perhaps, already begin to introduce something new in your organization. I myself do it in the following order: I go to the conference website, watch the program, select the speeches that are useful to me, start googling them and then search on YouTube, Slideshare, Spykerdeck or Soundcloud. Not always lucky, but most often traces of performances can be found. I even somehow addressed a question to one of the speakers through Linkedin.

    In a post I will provide links to each conference, go to the site, see what was interesting in 2017, was or will be in 2018, google and study. At each event, not only software manufacturers, but also large companies that use it, perform. You can easily find a business case similar to yours.
