Nora, with her vast experience, is one of the brightest minds in the industry, and she’s ready to share her valuable insights and experiences with you and is an extraordinary chance to learn from a true pioneer.

DevOpsDays is a grassroots event for professionals in technology to network together and share ideas & challenges relating to DevOps and Technology in general. It is organized by peers who care and believe in collaboration, automation, measurement and constant improvement.
