WinOps 2020

Location: London, England, United Kingdom

Date created: Feb 3, 2020


The world’s only dedicated conference to 'DevOps in a Windows World'.
The 6th Annual WinOps (DevOps on Windows) conference will be held in London on the 30th September and 1st October 2020 and we need YOU to come and share the lessons you've learnt in implementing DevOps in Microsoft & Windows-based environments.
The conference is about discovering and sharing experiences of using products and tools within the Microsoft DevOps world such as: PowerShell, TeamCity, Octopus Deploy, Azure, Vagrant, Chocolatey, AppDynamics, ScriptRock, Chef, Puppet, Ansible, Docker etc... WinOps covers a wide range of topics of interest to both Developers, Operations and existing DevOps practitioners. We have a strong preference for first person case studies where you can talk about personal experiences or your company's experiences in implementing DevOps in Microsoft technology based environments. Standard presentations are normally 45 min slideshows with or without a technical demo of some cool stuff; although panel sessions with 3-4 panelists are also very popular, as they allow for lots of audience interaction (we can provide an experienced moderator if you want to run a panel!).For 2020 we are particularly keen on submissions on "Modern Operations" including SRE, "App Modernisation" (best practices in modernising applications with cloud & DevOps), and of course as always any case studies on how your organisation has moved to DevOps. 
To get the ideas flowing, here's a few suggestions:
DevOps/WinOps Case studies
DevOps Transformation & Culture (particularly in Enterprise orgs using Microsoft technology)
Continuous Delivery for Microsoft languages (using MSFT or 3rd party tooling)
Continuous Delivery for non-Microsoft languages (using MSFT tooling)
Test Automation (for apps & environment validation)
Environment Provisioning for Microsoft environments
Configuration Management for Microsoft environments
Application Release Automation for Microsoft environments
Cloud migration and Operations for Microsoft environments
DevOps & Security for Microsoft environments
DevOps in Mixed OSS & Windows Environments
Talks on specific relevant technology e.g. Powershell DSC, ARM, VSTS, Octopus Deploy, 3rd party & OSS softwareNOTE TO VENDORS: We encourage vendors to submit talks (and we encourage them to sponsor the event as well!) but talks that simply promote your product and its features won't be accepted. Talks about "best practice" or "customer experiences" or that contextualise your tools (and your competitors tools) within the DevOps/WinOps pipeline have a much higher chance of success. TL;DR if it doesn't offer value to someone that DOESN'T buy your tool then it will be unlikely to make the cut.
