If all you know of Singapore is that it is a fine city, you're missing out. Singapore has many names: The Lion City. The Garden City. The Asian Tiger. The 'Fine' City. All venerable nicknames.
While its importance as the hub ob Asia is undisputed, it is also home to innovative startups, leading universities, and world-class arts and culture.
If you're local, you already know the diversity of our DevOps community. If you're coming in from elsewhere, prepare to mix with DevOps leaders from every segment of our vibrant local scene around Asean. And, of course, take some time to check out everything else the S'pore has to offer, from the many museums to great food and drink!
For those coming from out of town, there are flights from just about everywhere to Singapore, and there are several hotels nearby. More details are on the location page.
Some even say it's the 'easiest place for business,' the 'most livable city in Asia' and the 'best city in the world to live in for Asia expatriates.'.
So here are some more facts about Singapore:

Rows of trees that line roads everywhere, from expressways to suburban streets. Singapore's a champion of environmental initiatives, from the world's largest CNG refueling station to its first Solar Greenlots for electric vehicles.
Singapore has a crime rate so low, ladies stroll without fear in the wee hours of the night. And contrary to Western opinion, there's no strong police presence poised to cane anyone for spitting, chewing gum or scratching cars.
Singapore's stretch of malls accommodate the most fickle shoppers. Shop from Wisma Atrium on one end to Suntec City on the other without feeling the sun.
Singlish is the unofficial 'first language' of most Singaporeans and one that would bewilder the remaining English-speaking world. It is cobbled together from various influences including Queen's English, Bahasa Melayu, Tamil, dialects such as Hokkien, Teochew, Cantonese, Bengali, Punjabi and even a smattering of various other European, Indic and Sinitic languages. Can lah!
