Insights from DevOpsConf 2024: Beyond the Technical Director's Desk

March 2024

Participating in panel discussions, moderating presentations, and summarizing the outcomes of the DevOps conf - what else does the technical director of Evrone do besides his primary responsibilities?

DevOpsConf is one of the most significant professional events in our industry. This year, nearly one and a half thousand engineers working with infrastructure, development, and operations gathered on March 4 and 5. One of them was Evrone's CTO Alexander Kirillov. He was part of the conference's program committee and, this year, moderated discussions in the main hall. Alexander is a well-known expert in the field of DevOps and an advocate of the GitOps approach.

DevOps Battle

On the first day of the conference, Alexander participated in the employers' battle. The round table "Startup vs. Corporation vs. Outsourcing? Choosing the next employer" discussed the pros and cons of working at different companies. Of course, our technical director advocated for outsourcing companies and highlighted several undeniable advantages of employment with them compared to the in-house team of a young project or corporation.

On the second day, Alexander, together with the DevOpsConf manager Anastasia Demidova, summarized the event and closed the conference.

Why We Participate in Conferences

Our IT colleagues know Evrone as the founder and organizer of the largest Ruby conference, RubyRussia, which turned 15 this year. In addition to large-scale events, we have been hosting technical meetups and regional conferences focused on new technologies and programming languages for many years.

In 2024, we have big plans as participants and organizers of IT events. A series of conferences for universities will start soon, where students can listen to industry professionals and test their DevOps knowledge. Students who score the highest on the quiz and demonstrate their expertise will be offered a paid internship for an easy start to their career at Evrone.

We speak at the most prominent IT conferences. Becoming a speaker is not easy, and it's even harder to become an expert who influences the program of a future conference and selects the most exciting and fresh presentations.

Conferences are a great way to remind yourself that an expert is not someone who has learned to do something better than others but is someone who continues to develop. Discussions with colleagues keep you sharp and provide a lot of useful information about development trends. Thank you DevOpsConf for the opportunity to interact live with the community of engineers!
