The O'Reilly Velocity Conference: Build resilient distributed systems

Our industry is evolving rapidly, shifting to a distributed systems stack that spans the application layer all the way down through compute, storage, networking, to the data center (whether yours is in the cloud or not). At Velocity, we'll delve into these domains, helping you focus on engineering performance and operations from the bottom of the stack right up to the customer.

Failure is inevitable in our distributed systems. Come to Velocity and learn the strategies, tactics, tools, and approaches to deal with that inevitability:

  • Automation
  • Cloud
  • Containerization
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Databases
  • Deployment
  • 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 web operations, DevOps, and systems engineering. 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 at the San Jose Convention Center.
