Definitive list of DevOps events and call-for-papers. DevOps conferences are for developers, sysadmins and site reliability engineers.
DevOps is a clipped compound of "development" and "operations". It emphasizes the collaboration of developers, system administrators, IT operations, and site reliability engineers to automate the process of software delivery and infrastructure delivery. DevOps aims to build, test, and release software rapidly, frequently, and reliably. In traditional, functionally separated organizations there is rarely cross-departmental integration of these functions with IT operations. Bottom line, devOps promotes a set of processes and methods of communication and collaboration between development, QA, and IT operations.
