About this event

Hi everyone,
we missed you dearly over the Winter break, and we are very excited to start 2019 together with you ♥

To kick off our 5th year of activity, we picked a whole new focus: DevOps!
And we got the best way to glimpse into it with a great speaker who will shed some light on what really goes behind the scenes.

Come with questions, business cards and an open mind, make friends and take the first steps in making 2019 an awesome year for you!
There will be swag.


In many DevOps talks, you see a speaker from a renowned tech company stand up and describe a perfect utopia of an environment. You look at the perfect environment and dedicated hordes of senior engineers they describe, and you despair of ever getting to that point. Your environment looks nothing like that.

Surprise! Their environment doesn't really look like that either! In this talk, a speaker from an unnamed tech unicorn describes their amazing environment-- and then what they just said gets translated from "thought leader" into plain English for you by an official DevOps translator. Stop feeling sad, everything is secretly terrible!


Baruch Sadogursky (a.k.a JBaruch, also @JBaruch on Twitter) is the Head of Developer Relations and a Developer Advocate at JFrog. His passion is speaking about technology. Well, speaking in general, but doing it about technology makes him look smart, and 17 years of hi-tech experience sure helps. When he’s not on stage (or on a plane to get there), he learns about technology, people and how they work, or more precisely, don’t work together.

He is a CNCF ambassador, Groundbreakers Ambassador, and a professional conference speaker on DevOps, Java and Groovy topics, and is a regular at the industry’s most prestigious events including various JAX events, DockerCon, Devoxx, DevOps Days, Velocity, OSCON, JavaOne Qcon, and many others.
