From DevOps to Distributed Systems Engineering & Performance

From customer-facing services to marketing systems and manufacturing tool chains, every aspect of your business needs to be strong, resilient, and primed for the new distributed architectures.

Your work is to build, manage, and scale distributed systems—and Velocity is the place to make this happen. Join other in-the-trenches engineers, developers, and architects to learn best practices and form meaningful connections.

Whether you're running microservices in production, migrating your critical services to the cloud, constructing applications that need to be resilient to failure, or just getting started with DevOps—get the tools and skills you need to successfully manage today’s complex systems.
