Agile + DevOpsDays Des Moines is proud to be hosting their October 2024!


DevOpsDays is a worldwide series of technical conferences that started with a single event in 2009 in Ghent, Belgium. From that first year it grew to a handful of events around the world over the next couple years, until 2013 when it jumped to 18 events with a couple cities hosting alternating spring/summer/fall/winter events and continued to expand slightly through 2015. Suddenly in 2016 the number of events shot to over 40, growing to over 50 in 2017 and by the end of 2018 there were over 70 events held in all corners of the world, and already by March of 2019 there were over 50 events scheduled, with more than a dozen additional events planned and only awaiting date or location confirmations, and 9 more months for communities to coordinate more events and get them added to the devopsdays.org website.


DevOpsDays is dedicated to providing an environment where everyone in the devops community can learn and share in respectful, considerate collaboration. In that effort we have a code of conduct that we expect everyone involved with the conference to follow.

What should I talk about?

Anything DevOps or Agile related! We're looking for engaging speakers that are willing to dig in deep to a topic. Our conference attendees vary from beginners to veterans in the world of IT. We like to offer a diverse selection of topics that vary from year to year. 

Some topics past attendees have asked for (in no particular order): 
FinOps, Chaos Engineering, DR, the Cloud, AI/ML, Product Management, Leadership, CX/UX, OOUX, Data Management, Observability, Process Improvement, devsecops, No Code/Low Code,Cyber Security, Quantum Computing. 

Don't see your particular topic in that list? Submit it anyway! 


How do I make my submission stand out? 

Successful submissions will tell our speaker committee the objective and outcome of the talk for a potential attendee. 

We strive to offer a wide variety of topics at our conference. Keep this in mind if you are submitting a talk on something that is very hot right now. 

We love to see unique or unusual takes on topics- things that make us think differently.
