2020 has been the year focused on the human. As the pandemic unfolded, the Humans of DevOps worldwide did their part to help mitigate the many challenges we faced. We are grateful to the tech community for their tireless efforts in helping individuals and organizations adapt to the new ways of working in new and non-traditional ways.
After a long year, DevOps Institute wants to honor our member community and partners by coming together like never before. We’re hosting a week-long celebration 100% dedicated to advancing the Humans of DevOps from December 7-11: Global SKILup Festival 2020!
The premier DevOps upskilling event and celebration is not your traditional conference. The agenda will include a variety of different activities that focus on social, professional, and educational experiences. It also features a deep-dive into technology trends and presents career advancement opportunities. The world’s first such unique festival will take place virtually, and is sponsored by industry leaders Rancher, AppDynamics part of Cisco, CircleCI, Moogsoft, CloudHealth by VMware, Harness, and Epsagon.
