Europe's largest DevOps event took place on March 8th & 9th, with over 4,000 attendees from 100+ countries.
The DEVOPS Conference saw this year's biggest gathering of developers, engineers, architects, team leads, consultants and management in the DevOps space.
Coming together for 50 talks across two full days, the DevOps community met for a series of presentations, demos, discussions and interaction.

Highlights from the conference's main stage
Winning the audience's vote for this year's most popular segment was The future of Kubernetes, a fireside chat with Kelsey Hightower, Principal Cloud Architect at Google. Kelsey gave his unique perspective on the role of Kubernetes in the coming years, as well as rating a number of other related tools on his now-infamous 'dope' scale.
Headlining the second day of The DEVOPS Conference was Dr Nicole Forsgren, Partner at Microsoft Research. Her talk, entitled Why even DevOp? looked at how DevOps is about much more than developing software - it can genuinely improve our everyday working lives.
In the security space, the audience was given a glimpse into how security culture can be built into development teams, courtesy of Simon Maple from Snyk and Per Olsson from Visma, in their talk Improve developer adoption of your security needs.
Other main stage highlights included:
- Kirsi Louhelainen from AWS and Niko Kivelä from SOK on How DevOps feeds people - using DevOps to scale an online grocery platform
- Dom Price, Atlassian futurist & TED speaker discussing Managing change and building highly effective teams, from the organization that brought us Jira.
- Helen Beal from the DevOps Institute on Combining DevOps with Value Stream Management, the next chapter in optimizing work and value

"Continuous everything" attracted most viewers in the afternoon sessions
