DevOpsDays Conference coming back to Des Moines

On May 2nd and 3rd, Des Moines will be hosting its second annual DevOpsDays Conference at the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center.

DevOpsDays is a two-day conference where everyone in the DevOps community can meet to meet others to discuss DevOps practices and trends.

“This year we planned for almost double the capacity and we’re looking for significant growth this year,” said John Sonneville, organizer of the event. “We’re hoping to sell out again. Right now, we’ve still got some tickets left and are looking to sell the rest of those to make it another successful year.”

Between 400 and 500 people are expected to attend this year’s conference, Sonneville told Clay & Milk.

“We’ve got speakers from the local area as well as outside the Des Moines area,” Sonneville said. “We’ll have three rooms so there’s a choice of session for each slot. We do have some shorter talk that people will be doing.”

The conference currently has 23 speakers slated to speak throughout the conference.

This year’s conference will expand upon last year’s conference which was solely focused on the technical side of software development.

“Last year was purely a technical track. This year, we’re really trying to branch out more to the business side of things so we will have a business track as well,” Sonneville said.

Tickets to the conference are now available for $200.
