    How new technologies
    and approaches are changing IT Operations.


Two Days on all things (Dev)Ops!

- September 2016, London

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

Looking for the 2015 edition website? It's here


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.


Hand-picked, seriously cool speakers

Working on it :-)

First Day

Anti-Harassment Policy

Operability.IO is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion.

We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference at the discretion of the conference organisers without a ticket refund. Harassment includes offensive verbal comments, sexual images in public spaces, deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks or other events, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.

Exhibitors in the expo hall, sponsor or vendor booths, or similar activities are also subject to the anti-harassment policy. In particular, exhibitors should not use sexualised images, activities, or other material. Booth staff (including volunteers) should not use sexualised clothing/uniforms/costumes, or otherwise create a sexualised environment.

If a participant engages in harassing behaviour, the conference organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference with no refund.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately.Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.

We value your attendance. We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
