devopsdays Amsterdam 2020

From fledgling startups to an established industry, the Netherlands is home to a large, vibrant technology community. Amsterdam, in particular, has been a flurry of activity in the past several years, drawing attention from around the globe.

This event brings development, operations, QA, InfoSec, business, and leadership together to discuss the culture and tools to make better organizations and products. The 2020 event will be the eighth time we have held devopsdays Amsterdam, and it should be bigger and better than ever before! Next to the tech community, we also aim for increasing attendance from the business side.

We expect 500 people this year and will be holding the event on June 17-19, 2020 at Pakhuis de Zwijger in the heart of Amsterdam.

The format of devopsdays Amsterdam includes a single track of 30 minute talks in the morning of each event, followed by Ignite talks (5 minutes, auto-forwarding). We spend the rest of the afternoon in Open Spaces, which are considered a key portion of the event. Parallel to that, we continue offering the single track around a specific theme. This year the theme will be all about the business side of DevOps (business track).

Call for Participation

Thank you for considering a submission for the eighth edition of devopsdays Amsterdam.

To increase your chance of having your talk, ignite or workshop selected, please consider the following topics:

  • What is the next frontier for DevOps?
  • Organizational changes (management and engineering)
  • War stories (successes and failures are equally important to us!)

The durations of the sessions are:

  • Ignite talks: 5 minutes
  • Talk: 30 minutes
  • Workshop: 2.5 hours
    Workshops are hands-on sessions in a classroom setting.

Business track (Talks: 30 minutes)

As a track at the main conference, we explore the business-side of DevOps. Gone are the times where DevOps resides in IT only. If an enterprise wants to stay competitive in a digital age, it has to close the gap between business and IT. With the business track we aim to bring both disciplines closer together and examine the implications, challenges and opportunities of DevOps from a business perspective. See the list below for topic inspirations:

  • Overcoming business challenges to enable DevOps
  • DevOps in numbers - how do DevOps practices contribute to the bottom line
  • DevOps transformation stories - and how to make them great for everyone involved
  • Transformational leadership: How to lead through a DevOps transformation
  • Successfully bridging the gap between business and IT

If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach out to the organizers at amsterdam@devopsdays.org.
We expect participants to adhere to the code of conduct

You can enter submissions until 2020-04-01 23:59 (Europe/Amsterdam), 2 months, 1 week from now.
