The O’Reilly Velocity Conference: New direction for 2017

We have begun to accept that failure is inevitable in these distributed systems and adopt new strategies, tactics, tools, and approaches to deal with that acceptance. Our industry is evolving rapidly, and we are adjusting the trajectory of Velocity to reflect this fundamental shift. We’re moving from our original focus on web performance and operations towards a distributed systems stack spanning the application layer all the way down through compute, storage, networking, to the data center (whether yours is in the cloud or not). This extends Velocity’s scope into new domains, expanding our focus on performance and operations from the bottom of the stack right up to the customer.

Velocity 2017 will feature both technical and non-technical presentations that cover:

  • Automation
  • Cloud
  • Containerization
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Databases
  • Deployment
  • Design
  • DevOps
  • Distributed Data
  • Distributed Systems
  • Enterprise
  • Networking
  • Orchestration and Scheduling
  • Organizational optimization
  • Security
  • Serverless computing

The O’Reilly Velocity Conference has brought together systems and site reliability engineers, systems architects, application developers, and performance engineers since 2008—talented and diverse people who are doing amazing things in the web operations, DevOps, and systems engineering space. If you want to learn how to build and manage systems that are too large to understand, too complex to control, and that fail in unpredictable ways, make plans to join us at Velocity, taking place June 19–22 in San Jose, California.
