LOOKING BACK AT 10 YEARS OF DEVOPS
Chief Technical Officer
10 years ago we had the idea to organise a conference in Gent to bridge the gap between developers and the people runing their code. It was the start of a new global movement. We never predicted that #devops would be where #devops is today. The word devops has evolved, the community has evolved. Over the years the word devops lost it’s meaning at least it’s original meaning. The real challenge for the next decade will be to see how we can revive those original values and ideas, if at all… Can we fix Devops? This talk will give you some Ideas about that.
HOW CONVENIENCE IS KILLING OPEN STANDARDS
All the technical freedom and diversity we enjoy in our industry is the result of internal, grass root evangelism. Over the last couple of decades, thought leaders have strongly opposed manufacturer-centric strategies and argued the case of Open Source and Open Standards. This ultimately led to the success of Linux and Open Source we have today.But now, two decades later, the IT industry is in upheaval again: All three major cloud providers have been pushing their serverless solutions in order to lure customers into a new form of vendor lock-in. And they succeeded: The number of serverless deployments has already surpassed those of container based ones.“So this is how liberty dies … with thunderous applause”
I think there is no time to waste, to remind our-
-selves about Open Standards, their value to
Chief Executive Officer
our industry, and why it is worth to fight for them to survive. Open Standards go beyond the boundaries of development and operation. They are the foundation of a barrier free interoperability and independent communications. The lecture aims to inspire the connection between both worlds and paradigms for a modern and flexible application infrastructure.

DEVOPS DAYS PRAGUE
We are proud to announce our organizing team of DevOps enthusiasts and geeks.
Senior Principal Software Engineer
I’ve been working in Software Development for more than 15 years. I prefer medium-size companies with medium-size projects and relative fast feedback loop. I’ve started organizing Prague DevOps meetup 3 years ago. It has helped me to meet and get to know a lot of companies, people and technologies that are DevOps-oriented. I’m currently learning how to be a good parent, which is costing me a lot of time, but I would like to keep in touch with communities and people with free mind.
Scrum Master / Project Manager
Senior CDN engineer
Senior DevOps Engineer
I have covered a number of different fields over the past 8 years; ranging from marketing and brand management through sales and key accounting to recruiting & HR. I am passionate about fast-paced start-up environment and helping companies grow rapidly. My last working experience brought me to a DevOps company; where I have started to actively build DevOps community via meetups, knowledge sharing and networking as well as had the opportunity to get involved in agile software development.
I’ve been moving between Dev and Ops roles for the past 12 years or so. I worked (and still do) for big corporations with heavy processes and red tape and I am trying to streamline and automate their pipelines and bring new technology into their world. So generally fighting with the windmills and trying to make sure that people can actually do what they need to do.
I’ve been working in marketing for the past 4 years. Started during studies in 180 Degrees Consulting, NGO, then moved to corporate sphere with EPAM Systems, where I am currently taking care of Marketing and CSR for Czech Republic.
For more than a decade, I’ve been crafting the ability of introducing sophisticated bugs into the software for future generations to resolve. That led me to an idea to share this art with community on MeetUps and spread the joy of software engineering.
