DevOps Days Kansas City

New Context is excited to be a Silver Sponsor for DevOpsDays Kansas City, September 21-22, in Kansas City, Missouri. We’re also proud to announce that two of our local engineers have been selected to present throughout the event at the Uptown Theater.

What the Heck is “DevOpsDays”?
DevopsDays is a worldwide series of technical conferences covering topics of software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection between them (aka DevOps). Topics often include automation, testing, security, and organizational culture.

Who Should Go?
Anyone involved in the creation or management of technical solutions in any industry can benefit from attending this event, including: developers, systems/operations engineers, security, QA, UX, management, and specialists in Mobile, VR, AI, BI, and so on.

What’s In It For You?
DevOpsDays fosters discussions around culture and tools that can help organizations run better, deliver faster, and improve quality. This year’s program includes topics on staging servers, DevOps, multi-cloud architecture, programming, InfoSec, continuous delivery in risk averse organizations, DevOps at scale: challenges, insights and lessons learned, engineering trust in automated solutions, and intellectual property. In addition to the in-depth discussions, a variety of laser focused Ignite talks will be provided throughout the event.

Two of the Ignite talks will be led by New Context engineers:

  • Why Beta Users are Key, Adam Wieberg, Sr. DevOps Engineer
  • Secret Management with HashiCorp Vault, Kyle Sexton, Sr. DevOps Engineer

But Really, What’s In It For You?
Sharing is caring! One of the best parts of DevOpsDays is Open Spaces, where all attendees contribute to the topics that will be discussed that day in small groups. You can share successes and failures,, get feedback on your big ideas, and even ask for help to solve a real world problem you will be facing when you return to work on Monday. These highly collaborative sessions create take-aways that everyone can take advantage of.

Plus, the two-day conference is loaded with opportunities to network, win prizes, and have fun. You won’t want to miss the Ignite karaoke sessions and happy hour. Don’t forget to stop by our table to say hi and pick up some New Context swag while you’re there. See ya in September!
