Agenda

 

Kubernetes has taken the industry by storm and become the de-facto orchestration standard throughout the commercial and government sectors. As kubernetes has evolved, so have the conversations about security, observability, serverless and gitops. The full impact these topics have on technology is still emerging. Join attendees on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at the Marriott Washington Metro Center for a full-day informative sessions and collaborative discussions that will highlight these opportunities and challenges.

This premier event is the only one of its kind, produced by developers for developers. DevNation Federal brings the most respected industry experts, government officials, academic leaders and key maintainers of popular open source projects on stage to deliver a one-day, immersive conference for federal developers.
