DevOps World is going virtual!
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.
