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.
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.
OpenDev is designed to facilitate collaboration at a technical level with productive, working space, in addition to lightning talk presentations
This event is for technical experts in automated testing, continuous integration and rapid software delivery. Users with real world CI/CD use cases including Jenkins, Spinnaker, Zuul and other open source tools are also encouraged to attend.
OpenDev is a two-day event primarily comprised of collaborative working sessions, roundtables, and architecture show-and-tells with a limited number of use case lightning talks.
While OpenDev is underwritten and primarily organized by the OpenStack Foundation, the focus is on bringing together composable open infrastructure technologies across communities and industries. The programming committee is made up of experts across open source communities, with a particular focus on CI/CD for 2018. A limited number of sponsors will also help with funding.
