Are you going to DevOps Days Detroit? This year, DevOps Days Detroit features speakers from tech towns across the U.S. from Silicon Valley and Seattle to Philadelphia and Detroit. The conference runs October 23-24 at the Alfred Taubman College for Creative Studies in downtown Detroit. Cronicle is a media sponsor of DevOps Days Detroit 2019 and will be covering the event on site, but if you’re a devops person and can take the time, we highly suggest being there in person. We hear the talks are small enough to connect with the DevOps community and the food is bomb.
Automation is revolutionizing the economy and our lives. On October 15th, in Columbus, Ohio, leaders of the automation revolution including Clinc co-founder Lingjia Tang, StockX COO Greg Schwartz, and Andy Lonsberry CEO of Path Robotics will gather to discuss the rapid changes affecting all industries through automation.
