Get ready for the DevOps remix at DevOps World 2022.

We’re back — in person — and there’s a lot of ‘new’ in the air! New elements are changing the DevOps track. New energy. New people, new workflows, faster tempo.  From product managers to CISOs, and the crucial work of SREs, evolving roles are changing the DevOps beat. Progressive delivery, value stream management, and DevSecOps are now part of the mix creating new paths, new harmonies, and faster code releases. Modern software delivery is the ticket to orchestrating new customer experiences and better business outcomes — and everyone is watching.

We’re pulling out all the stops and spinning up a remix of unique and useful opportunities to help shape the future of software delivery. It’s gearing up to be a brilliant production. But we need your help.

Our Call for Papers is your chance to inspire — and be inspired by — DevOps experts, colleagues, and peers alike. Have you struck a high note in progressive delivery, solved the unsolvable with AIOps, found and vanquished a supply chain security issue, or gone above and beyond with value stream optimization? What about a new twist on the classics like Jenkins, CI/CD, or a tried and true DevOps process?

We’re ready to hear your ideas for breakout sessions, workshops and more. Please submit your session proposal below. 

Please note the following: Last year’s event was virtual, but in 2022, we're back to meeting in person. And that’s music to our ears. All DevOps World speakers/session leads must be present at the in-person event in Orlando, Florida, USA. Workshops will take place on September 27 and sessions September 28-29, 2022.

  • Practitioner: DevOps World is the largest gathering of DevOps practitioners, providing a meeting place to learn, network, and shape the future of software development. Attendees will have an opportunity to network with peers and industry experts, discover the latest best practices used by Fortune 1000 companies, and join discussions about common DevOps challenges.
  • Leadership: Back again after an incredibly successful first year, the DevOps World Leadership track provides attendees access to strategic business thinking and deep technical expertise. The leadership track runs throughout the conference to educate and equip a new generation of digital leaders, with presentations, panel discussions, hands-on exercises, and peer interaction.
  • Community: This track combines the best aspects of open source development, the movement that helped to shape the DevOps World conference into what it is today.. Open-source drives innovation, leads to better, more robust technology, and benefits everyone. Attendees will collaborate, share knowledge, solve problems and gain insights from open source developers, technologists, and community leaders as we cover progressive technologies, insert complex topics, and issues impacting today’s open-source challenges.
  • Finance: The financial services sector continues to set the standard for innovation and DevOps leadership, despite operating under an ever-increasing burden of governance and compliance. Join FinServ practitioners and leadership heavyweights as they share learnings, best practices, and insights on topics like partnering with regulators, compliance-driven velocity, driving culture change, and the Robinhood effect.
  • Public Sector: DevOps and DevSecOps are playing critical roles in the public sector, and ensuring efficiency, security, and compliance across the board is a major focus. Speakers in this track will want to look at the important role DevSecOps plays for government services and agencies working to meet the needs of the public sector. We’ll have agency experts and federal system integrators on hand to share how to seamlessly integrate security and compliance functions into CI/CD pipeline to achieve continuous Authority to Operate (ATO).

Key Topics:

  • Progressive Delivery: With hundreds of existing software development, security, monitoring and DevOps tools, we want to hear how you've moved beyond standard delivery processes to deliver in more dynamic, targeted ways with better feedback loops (such as releasing using feature flags, canary releases, or blue/green deployments). What tactics, tools, and software have you employed to adapt to rapidly changing consumer demands and technologies? Be sure to share how you moved the needle with real-world results.
  • Securing the Software Supply Chain: Solar Winds was an international wake-up call for many enterprises and industries. It shed light on the critical role IT plays in securing the supply chain. We're interested in hearing about the software security and delivery processes you've employed — or developed — to ensure your software supply chain can detect and instantly mitigate problems in production to keep things running as securely as possible.
  • Value Stream Management (VSM): Many companies realize the need to embrace VSM: a systems-thinking practice to improve the flow of business value from customer need to customer value. (Think "concept to cash"). Tell us how you have used this technique to connect the dots between software delivery and business outcomes. Showcase how VSM helps you view and analyze end-to-end software delivery processes. Or perhaps you can share how you've measured application value streams and addressed issues as they occur with live data and how that’s impacted your operational efficiencies and the organization as a whole.
  • Modern Software Delivery: Market demand for digitization has placed additional burdens on IT's ability to develop, test and deliver technology in an accelerated fashion. To keep pace, enterprises are incorporating modern software delivery technologies like testing automation, AI and observability — to name a few. And, they are also turning to trusted technology partners for the solutions and the expertise to help them modernize. What tools and techniques have you employed to embrace modernization? What challenges did you overcome? What lessons learned and successes can you share?
  • People and Culture: Building a thriving DevOps culture has always been a hot topic. But, let's face it: remote working — coupled with the accelerated pace of digital transformation — has changed business operations as we know it. The focus is no longer just "Dev + Ops"; it's the need for collaboration across the entire organization. How has your business adapted to this evolution? Which processes, technologies, and communication tools have freed your teams to innovate faster, your staff to feel empowered and rewarded, your business lines to recognize value sooner, and your customers to feel connected 24/7?
  • XOps: It was inevitable that operation teams and developers would eventually merge. It all started with DevOps, but the merge continues to include Security/DevSecOps, Artificial Intelligence/AIOps, and Machine Learning/MLOps. Now, we're welcoming XOps, which attempts to bring it all together. What are your experiences with this transformation? What software solutions helped your cross-departmental teams collaborate to create real business value? We want to hear your (FILL-IN-THE-BLANK)-Ops success story!
  • Compliance in the Age of Transformation: A secure and compliant software delivery lifecycle is the hallmark of digital transformation excellence. That's especially true for regulated organizations that must keep software compliant and auditable in adherence to governance requirements. We're interested in how you baked compliance into your software design and the challenges you had to overcome in securing the software delivery pipeline? Let us know how your software helps engineering and operations teams adhere to policy and how you keep everything audit-ready.
  • Jenkins: This is where it all started: All things Jenkins. How do you leverage this leading open source automation server, which provides hundreds of plugins to support building, deploying, and automating any project? In what ways has deploying Jenkins helped you accelerate and automate your development efforts? Share your best practices, processes, user case studies, and the plugins you created to spearhead your software development and fuel this dynamic global community.
