After a careful review of the current situation with COVID-19 and following national and international guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we have determined that it will not be possible to hold DevOps World 2020 in person as planned for September 21-25, 2020 in Las Vegas.
The DevOps World event team is working on plans for a global, multi-day, virtual event that will take place in September 2020 and will be open to all, free of charge. We are still working through many of the logistical details for the virtual event, but you can expect the same inspiring content as years past - keynotes, breakout sessions, access to DevOps experts, and more. We will share additional information as soon as it becomes available.
Alongside this news, we are sharing that we have extended the DevOps World CFP until June 5. This means you have extra time to brainstorm ideas and pull together a compelling session for the event. Don’t forget to check out the CFP Guide and submit your proposal for a chance to speak at this year’s virtual event.
If you previously registered for DevOps World 2020 as an attendee or sponsor, the additional information below aims to answer common questions you may have. For those that have not registered yet, details on how to register for the virtual event will be available soon. Feel free to contact us at email@example.com with any additional questions.
