    How new technologies
    and approaches are changing IT Operations.


Two Days on all things (Dev)Ops!

- September 2015, London

Come and learn from your peers how new processes, tools and
techniques are changing IT Operations forever.


DevOps, Continuous Delivery, Cloud, Microservices, Automation, Big Data, Containers and Datacenter Operating Systems are changing how software is Developed and Operated. Content about technical solutions abounds but the same cannot be said for Software Operability, IT operating models and how to plan and organise IT Operations.

Software Operability

One of the key goals of DevOps is to ensure that software runs well in Production, especially in the context of regular deployments. The increasing prevalence of complex, distributed software systems calls for approaches that anticipate and expect failures, transient behaviour, emergent states, and unpredictability. Making software run well in this dynamic, interconnected world is the focus of Software Operability.

IT Operations

Still believe that Cloud, Automation and DevOps mean NoOps? Thinking Operations are just about servers is like thinking Development is just about writing code. What works: microservices based product teams and backend based platform team(s) with APIs between them.

    Operability.IO 2015 will be on September 24-25


    We started thinking about this conference over 10 months ago and registered the domain at the end of July 2014 so it's been a long time coming and we are excited to finally announce it.
    Finding dates that don't clash with other relevant events is hard in our industry but September 24-25 in London it is!

    Conference Location announced

    News Image

    We will be gathering at the etc.venues Victoria in Drummond Gate, a stone's throw away from the Victoria line stop of Pimlico.
    Weather permitting we will enjoy their lovely outside space and the venue is just a short walk from the Tate Britain, ideal for those who will have a little time to spare for sightseeing.

  • March 17

    First speakers confirmed!

    News Image

    As you might have noticed there is no CfP for Operability.IO and the reason is simple: we have a clear idea of what kind of event we want and intend to curate the content to guarantee a high standard in both content and delivery. Today we can start unveiling some of the names, many more to come.
