Web technologies are changing at lightning speed, but the challenges remain the same: your pages need to load quickly, your infrastructure has to scale efficiently, and your sites and services must be reliable. In addition, your organization needs to understand the business value of your mission and be on board with it. All this, without burning out your team or breaking your budget.

This is why—year after year—Velocity is the single, most important, must-attend conference for web operations and development professionals. In three laser-focused days, you'll learn about the latest technologies, hear about developments in best practices, get answers for your most difficult technical and administrative challenges, and bolster your skillset and expertise.

"Velocity is the conference where people talk about how to get things done in the real world—if you want to know how the best in the world handle their Operations, Velocity is the place to learn." —Adam Jacob, Opscode

What is Velocity about?

  • Three days of concentrated focus on the key aspects of web performance, operations, and mobile performance
  • A rich schedule: inspiring keynotes, hands-on tutorials and workshops, a broad multi-track program of sessions

  • An Exhibit Hall featuring dozens of the latest tools and products
  • Fun evening events, Birds of a Feather sessions, and plenty of networking opportunities

"The Velocity conference is the best ops focused event I've been to, the content was highly technical and not just teaser." —Ezra Zygmuntowicz

"Performance is one of the difficult frontiers that web developers must push against. Velocity is a good forum for exchanging sightings and explorations." —Douglas Crockford, Yahoo!, Author of JavaScript: The Good Parts
