Whether you want to brush up on your networking, hear the latest announcements in the industry or join the most important conversations, conferences are the place to be. And quality events worth attending are abundant at this time of year. Mark your calendars, as we made a list of top 5 conferences you should visit in upcoming months.
Who is it for? Site reliability engineers, software architects, developers, DevOps engineers, academics, CxOs, and managers
The European edition of O’Riley’s Velocity will take place in Germany’s capital at the beginning of November, gathering names from A-list companies and institutions such as the Harvard University, Oracle, Slack, Yelp, VMWare… The four-day event focuses on cloud native infrastructure, DevOps, Kubernetes, bringing together a diverse community of experts in building and maintaining complex cloud native systems. It’s the education and knowledge which gives Velocity quite a value; just take a look at the two-day trainings and tutorials prepared for Platinum or Training registrants.
Who is it for? Developers, infrastructure engineers, Microsoft customers
Microsoft’s flagship event is all massive numbers: it attracts over 30.000 attendees who can visit over 700 deep-dive sessions and participate in more than 100 expert workshops. It’s no wonder there are preparation guides for visitors of the conference, as the event will cover architecture, deployment, development, migration security, compliance and so much more. Ignite is a well known address for our Senior Microsoft Engineer Vladimir Stefanovic, who will join it this year as an Expert Staffer.

Check out the schedule and sign up for your preferred sessions.
Who is it for? Developers and engineers, system administrators/architects, AWS customers
No list would be complete without AWS’s conference, which promises to be the biggest cloud event of the year. Again, it doesn’t hurt to check a preparation guide or two, as AWS always hosts thousands during those five days. From keynote speeches to certifying opportunities, Re:Invent does offer many experiences and impressions to take home. Or to quote Jeff Barr: You’ll walk away with the technical knowledge to help you and your company refine your cloud strategy, increase application performance, and so much more.
Our team will be there, so follow us for all the details!

After San Francisco, this conference moves to Lisbon and focuses its’ day 1 on training courses – 6 of them to be precise, including Accelerated DevOps Foundation Certification. As indicated in the name, the event gathers the Jenkins community, providing exploring, education and networking opportunities among 700+ Jenkins fans and devotees from all around the globe. If the date and location suit you, don’t miss DevOps World and if you need some nudge to help you convince the management, download the justification letter.
