Building and maintaining complex distributed systems
17–18 October, 2017: Training
18–20 October, 2017: Tutorials & Conference
London, UK

Four days focused on systems engineering, operations, and performance.

The systems you're building are complex and distributed, made up of numerous applications and services. They're hard to build and harder to manage with no one right way to build to meet your customer's needs. Creating them is a collaborative effort full of interdependencies between teams and technologies. With so many moving pieces, it's nearly impossible to predict the potential impact one part will have on other parts of the system under various conditions—until one fails, that is.

Join us at the O’Reilly Velocity Conference as we step back for a full-stack, holistic view of our applications and services and explore how to improve end-to-end performance. We're expanding our program to include resilience engineering and delving deeper than ever into how to build the fastest and most durable systems.

Together, we'll learn from failure—which we see as inevitable (and educational) given the complexity of our systems—and see how resilience engineering can help you and your team build the best possible products and services. You'll still experience Velocity's traditional strong points—performance and operations—as well as talks on on edge computing, networks and content delivery, distributed data and databases, storage, compute, technical leadership, and more:

  • Automation
  • Chaos engineering
  • Cloud
  • Containerization
  • Continuous Delivery
  • Deployment
  • DevOps
  • Distributed Data
  • Distributed Systems
  • Infrastructure as code
  • Networking
  • Orchestration and Scheduling
  • Organizational optimization
  • Performance
  • Security
  • Serverless computing
  • Site reliability engineering

You'll find your peers at Velocity: systems engineers, operations and site reliability engineers, systems architects, application developers, and performance engineers—a community of talented and diverse people who are doing amazing things in engineering, performance, and DevOps. If you'd like to learn from some of the most successful and innovative minds in the field that will help you and your team build the best possible products and systems, make plans to join us at Velocity, 17-20 October at the Hilton London Metropole.
