As summer speeds by and 2021 looms, COVID-19 has seemingly shown no signs of stopping – but that won’t stop us from connecting with our fellow DevOps enthusiasts. 

Many world-class events are going virtual this year, uniting practitioners and thought leaders from around the globe to share ideas, best practices and war stories – all from a safe social distance.
