Join the Next DOES16 #c9d9 Video Chat with Gene Kim and Conference Speakers

Gene Kim and DevOps Thought Leaders Share DevOps Best Practices

It’s hard to believe that the 2016 DevOps Enterprise Summit (#DOES16) is less than two months away!

As the founding partner of the event, we’re working with IT Revolution to help produce the most successful and memorable event yet. Together, we’re continuously working towards building and supporting a strong DevOps community, which we’re excited to say is chock-full of people who are eager to not only learn about best practices from others in the industry, but also share their unique challenges and opportunities. This year, we are excited to have many speakers (representing Docker, Capital One, Nationwide, GitHub, Heroku and more) coming back for a second, or even third, time to share new insights and the latest developments along their transformation journeys.

Plus, make sure to check out speakers from Electric Cloud and our customers, who will also be taking the stage to share their DevOps transformations story. The past two years have sold out, and  this year is on track to do the same – so don’t miss out on your chance to attend the show, register now!
