Now in its 11th year, the O'Reilly Velocity Conference helps systems engineers, software developers, and DevOps teams stay ahead of their game by keeping pace with key innovations and trends.
They gather to build skills to meet the pressing demands of their work, hear from their peers, meet with industry leaders, and get real knowledge that they can take back and apply right away to their work. Through expert-led presentations, they learn to build high-performance, resilient, and secure systems. That's the reason attendees return to Velocity, year after year.
Whether you're working on performance, monitoring and observability, scalability, serverless, security, or leadership, you'll get the most critical, up–to–the–minute knowledge from Velocity's network of experts. Come to Velocity—because your systems aren't getting any less complex.
Go beyond a single tool or technology at Velocity: the program cuts across vendors, technologies, and frameworks to offer you the most comprehensive coverage of the full, distributed systems stack.
Topics we’ll cover include:
Take part in Velocity's unique in-person, one- and two-day training courses led by expert practitioners. The courses take place June 11-12 and are limited in size to maintain a high level of learning and instructor interaction.
True innovation depends on hearing from, and listening to, people with a variety of perspectives. Here are some initiatives we’ve undertaken to encourage a diversity of ideas, participants, and topics at Velocity.
To support diversity in the larger tech community, while Velocity registration is open, we’re raising funds for Women in Linux. Learn more »
