Upcoming O’Reilly Velocity Conferences

By  on  

Velocity Conference is one of those conferences that every type of software industry specialist should go to, and I say that as a front-end developer.  Velocity covers a host of important topics:  security, performance and scaling, devops, leadership, and more.  While I love nothing more than burying my head into a text editor, a recognize that security, performance, and essential team skills like leadership are important for career growth.

Velocity Conference is hitting two amazing cities this October:  New York, NY, USA (October 1-4) and London, England, UK (October 17-20).  You'll hear from diverse speakers from prominent organizations like Google, Netflix, Dropbox, Pinterest, Microsoft, Fastly, Intel, and more!
