Over 16 presentations and numerous Lightning Talks provided exciting insights into the IT landscape

On 12 and 13 March 2019 the DevOps Gathering took place on the campus of G DATA in Bochum. The international non-profit conference convinced 199 participants with 31 speakers and their exciting and comprehensive topics about the IT industry of today and tomorrow.

"When I see the many people here in our big event hall, the DevOps Gathering enjoys an increasing popularity", says Andreas Lüning, CEO and co-founder of G DATA Software AG from Bochum, full of pride in his opening speech. With good reason: The international non-profit conference is taking place for the third time on the campus of G DATA Software AG. Here, at the IT Security Hotspot in Germany, the competence from over 30 years of experience in the IT security landscape is bundled. The security of docker containers is particularly important for Lüning. After all, it would be the responsibility of an IT security service provider to protect them against cyber criminals.

A full event hall with full themes

On both days the 199 participants were offered extensive talks in the event hall of G DATA. For example, the speaker Bill Mulligan from Loodse dealt with the topic "Kubernetes for non-coders". The aim of the lecture was to present Kubernetes outside the IT department and to develop an understanding of how the open source system creates the transition for cloud-based technologies. Other exciting topics were "SRE, DevOps, Google and you", "What the hell is software craftmanship?" or "Provision of native cloud apps with Kubernetes on Azure". The physical well-being was also taken care of, so that in the breaks a comfortable networking took place.
