Linz, Austria - Apr 26, 2018

Developer and ops conference

Final countdown


The cloud, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the conference DevOne. Its one-day mission: To explore the hottest topics of DevOps, to seek out new challenges in Software development, to boldly go where no human has continuously integrated before.



Principal DevOps Manager at Microsoft

Meet The Man in the Black Shirt. Donovan Brown is a Principal DevOps Manager on Microsoft's Cloud Developer Advocacy team. Why is DevOps one of the hottest topics? Because it hurts the most. Luckily, Donovan's unofficial tag line is #RubDevOpsOnIt and he's here to make it all better. Before joining Microsoft, Donovan spent seven years as a Process Consultant and a Certified Scrum Master. Developer Tools are his thing. Donovan has traveled the globe helping companies in the U.S., Canada, India, Germany, and the UK develop solutions using agile practices, Visual Studio, and Team Foundation Server in industries as broad as Communications, Health Care, Energy, and Financial Services. What else keeps the wheels spinning on The Man in The Black Shirt? Donovan's also an avid programmer, often finding ways to integrate software into his other hobbies and activities, one of which is Professional Air Hockey where he has ranked as high as 11 in the world.


CSO at Min Doktor

Have you seen a fire breathing dragon dual wield My little pony figurines? How about an IT Security employee with a burning passion for keeping users safe and security fun? Siren Hofvander delivers on the latter and strives for the former in her daily job as CSO for Min Doktor - responsible for the security of not only the patient data but also the service itself. She is an expert of embedded security and specialises in building security into the SDLC and firmly believes that security is a task for everyone, not just the hacker elite. She also heads up the Malmö based IT Security group SecuriTea and is an avid forum contributor.


Product Quality Specialist at ThoughtWorks

Finn cares about high quality software from his heart. He is an analyst. Sometimes he analyses client business needs, sometimes teams and their processes and sometimes software. Finn loves being the team driver towards building a high quality product. He strongly believes in the benefits of truly agile environments to achieve this goal. In his previous life he was a physicist: Finn was analysing how to build transistors and hard drives out of single molecules.


Spring Framework project lead at Pivotal

Juergen Hoeller is co-founder of the Spring Framework open source project and has been serving as the project lead and release manager for the core framework since 2003.
