OpenDev is an annual event focused at the intersection of composable open infrastructure and modern applications. The 2018 gathering will focus on continuous integration, deployment and delivery (CI/CD), featuring developers and users who are defining new ways to develop and manage software. The event is structured to have an impact on future development and integration efforts, achieved by collaboratively produced deliverables to share back with the industry and open source communities. Overall, the event is designed in a way to create focused, intimate and productive sharing of information.

  • Vancouver Convention Centre, May 22-23, 2018

Innovate, Continuously

The past decade has seen a massive shift in how companies use software to create strategic advantages in their business. And in a software defined economy, speed of delivery is a key metric for every organization that wants to stay competitive. The days of annual, monthly or even weekly releases are long gone, and today’s most mature organizations ship code many times every day. To enable this, software delivery today takes advantage of new technology and methods to automate and manage the process of getting code from developers to production.

How OpenDev can help to

Advance the future of CI/CD

OpenDev is designed to facilitate collaboration at a technical level with productive, working space, in addition to lightning talk presentations
