The inaugural DevOpsDays DC is in the books, and was a resounding success. THANK YOU to everyone who helped made it happen - our partners at the USPTO, all of our sponsors, our talented and engaging speakers, dedicated volunteers and organizers, and most importantly our 400+ attendees from the private and public sectors and everywhere in between.

If all you know of Washington, DC is what you see on C-SPAN or House of Cards, you're missing out. While its importance as the Nation's Capital and center of government is undisputed, the "DMV" (District, Maryland, and Virginia) 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. And, of course, take some time to check out everything else the Nation's Capital has to offer, from the many free Smithsonian museums to great food and drink!
For those coming from out of town, there are flights from just about everywhere to our three local airports, and there are several hotels nearby. More details are on the location page.
