COVID-19 Takes Top DevOps Events Virtual: A 2020 Online Conference Guide for Global IT, Development and Software Innovation Leaders
In the wake of the continuing COVID-19 pandemic crisis, Google, Red Hat, IBM, and Adobe in March 2020 joined a growing list of major DevOps conference producers who are canceling flagship physical conferences and replacing them with free, fully-virtual ones. This IDC Tech Buyer Presentation is a compilation of top online events Asian enterprise leaders might consider in 2020. It compiles resources around such newly online events as the Red Hat Summit, Google Cloud Next, and Microsoft’s MVP Global Summit alongside a raft of veteran of longtime online-only DevOps conferences that have won loyal attendee following in recent years.
At this writing, it seems likely that other flagship DevOps and software innovation events will follow suit and go virtual. This research is not intended as an encyclopedic collection. Rather, it’s a listing of top online 2020 events that IDC believes Asia/Pacific IT, development, and software innovation leaders will find most valuable. Each listing includes details on speakers, breakout sessions, and technology tracks, so would-be attendees can better determine which ones are worth closer attention.
This presentation will update at least monthly throughout the year. Please contact Gina Smith, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org with event suggestions, questions, or general comments.
