What is Global DevOps Bootcamp

Global DevOps Bootcamp is a worldwide community event that has now been organized for three years in a row. Each year, we create a full-day experience around a central theme. The day starts with a keynote (of a famous speaker!), a local keynote (by you!), and a challenging yet inspiring hackathon focusing on DevOps practices and Modern Software practices.

People also learn about the latest trends and will be sharing their DevOps experiences. It’s a great opportunity to learn hands-on and network with others locally working in this space, and also get to hear all about some real-world DevOps experiences.

How does it work

The event is held globally on the same day. The great thing for you as an organizer, is that you only have to worry about a good location and skilled people that can proctor during the day. We will take care of the rest. We will provide you all materials for the keynote and hackathon, provide you with marketing materials and during the day we provide a fully-fledged infrastructure so that your participants can get started right away! The last edition, we had around 90 venues and 10.000 people joining worldwide.

What our participants are saying:

"It ignited an interest in DevOps- I may change my career."

One of the best prepared hackathons

Really good. Loved trying out VSTS, it has changed a lot.

Wonderful boot camp. Learned a lot about DevOps and Azure Cloud computing.

For community event this was very professionally kept and better than many paid training camps I have participated. Good job!

It’s really great that DevOps Bootcamp is happening - there is such a great need for programs like this. I look forward to how it grows in years to come!
