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 more inclusive 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.
How do we build and manage systems that are too large to understand, too complex to control, and that fail in unpredictable ways? Velocity 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 have an epic win (or failure), provocative idea, practical how-to, proven best practice, or effective new approach to share, we—and our talented and technical attendees—want to hear from you. We're looking for speakers on both technical and non-technical topics that address:
How have you transformed your systems, organization, teams? Share your skills, experiences, and case studies with operations and system engineering professionals from around the world at the O'Reilly Velocity Conference, taking place October 1-4, 2017 in New York, NY.
