Velocity Web Performance and Operations Conference - Fast by Default

Web performance and operations is an emerging discipline which  requires incredible breadth, focusing less on specific technologies and  more on how the entire system works together. While people often  specialize in particular components, great engineers and developers  understand web performance and operations in relation to the whole. The  best are able to fly to the 50,000 foot view and see the entire system  in motion and then zoom in to microscopic levels and examine the tiny  movements of an individual part.

Now in its third year, Velocity—the Web Performance and Operations  conference from O'Reilly Media—is the premier conference that:

  • Provides your web ops and dev teams direct access to the training,  technologies and skills that will have the most immediate impact on  your bottom line
  • Gives you the keys to the "fast by default" toolkit for automating  your infrastructure
  • Throws aside the silos and redefines your team's understanding of  the whole industry ecosystem
  • Gives you direct face time with the biggest rock stars in the  industry and access to the biggest network of your peers
  • Shows off the biggest gallery of "show me now" case studies
