"As a programming committee, we worked hard to create a high learning experience, combined with enabling exciting networking opportunities, and to create a forum for exchanging insights with some of the best practitioners and subject matter experts on the planet," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution and co-author of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook and Accelerate. "I never learn as much in a short period of time as I do during the DevOps Enterprise Summit. It's the place where some of the most courageous and exciting transformation stories I have ever heard take place, and this year's conference in London is going to be the best yet."
New speakers added to the program agenda for DevOps Enterprise Summit London 2019 include:
Joe Aho, Chief Financial Officer, Compuware
Mehnaaz Abidi, Director of Product Management, Nike Digital
Nicole Bryan, VP, Product Development, Tasktop
Andy Burgin, Platform Engineer, Sky Betting & Gaming
Raj Fowler, Principal DevOps Consultant, BAE Systems
Chris O'Malley, Chief Executive Officer, Compuware
John Waters, Associate Director, Global Audit Cloud Architecture, Deloitte
In addition to experiencing the unfolding documentary of the ongoing IT transformations that leaders are helping drive in large, complex organizations, the program agenda includes different ways to learn away from the main stage:
DevOps Confessions--At the beginning of each day, programming committee members will read anonymized stories of confessions from leaders in the DevOps community to learn about the struggles, failures and near-misses.
Speakers Corner--Dedicated time and a location to ask the plenary speakers questions that go deeper on the information presented earlier that day.
Lean Coffee--Attendees can connect with and learn from their peers in a semi-structured format led by Dominica DeGrandis, all three days of the conference.
Auditors' Workshop--An opportunity to ask an auditor everything you've wanted to in the past, but were afraid to ask. This session will be led by Yosef Levine and John Waters from Deloitte.
Birds of a Feather Sessions--More like the DevOpsDays unconference sessions, with less structure than a Lean Coffee format, these sessions are driven by specific topics that attendees want to discuss and learn about.
Lightning Talks--These are rapid-fire, must-see presentations happen from the main stage after the conference day has concluded. IT Revolution authors' book signing happens immediately afterward.
Industry Party--Book signing of The Unicorn Project, sponsor giveaways, food and drinks, the industry party is a great opportunity to continue conversations with fellow attendees and speakers.
Slack Workspace--The conference will have a shared Slack workspace for people to interact with speakers, attendees and sponsors.
