Release engineering helps bring many of the products we use every day to market. From entertainment, such as Netflix
to operating systems and tooling,
to browsers and mobile operating systems that unleash the power of the web,
to software to configure the thousands of servers that allow us to build these products, and serve them to our customers.
Release engineers and researchers from Netflix, Puppet Labs, Mozilla. IBM, Google, Microsoft, Red Hat, Gnome and several universities will be giving talks at the Releng 2013 workshop on May 20, 2013 in San Francisco. I’m really excited by the different viewpoints that these speakers will bring to the conference and look forward to some interesting conversations. I always enjoy learning about complex systems work and I’m sure that a behind-the-scenes look at how these companies build, test and deploy software will be fascinating. A detailed list of talks is available on the conference web site.
In addition to the talks, we have two fantastic keynote speakers
John O’Duinn from Mozilla: Release Engineering as a “force-multiplier
Alan Grosskurth a release engineering consultant (formally VMWare):
Release Engineering in the Cloud Era
