Afternoon Workshops

This year, we have workshops that teach theory or technical skills. You may visit www.slcdevopsdays.org/schedule to review the options. Many have limited seating so please add only one for each day on your schedule. We will give preference to those who register early. The sizes are based on room constraints or topic. There will be a workshop on each day in the main hall (no restrictions). Please review the workshop info and any materials the presenter has shared. Some of the workshops require some setup and it’s best to do that prior to the conference.

On the second day the patio will be available to sit and chat with people you have met. The frst day, our awesome evening social will be held there. Lastly, many of our vendors have demos and may be showing them during this time. If interested in a demo just ask!

Prizes for Evening Social or Sponsor passport

Okay we get it. You have had spent a long hard day sitting in a folding chair. You have listened to speaker after speaker, attended workshops, and even though the talks were compelling and you did learn from the informative workshops, you are beat! All you want to do is head home, relax and kick back. The idea of hanging around after all this, to attend a social, may seem unnecessary. Perhaps even a little bit ridiculous. It is easy to think of reasons not to attend. But we would argue that you are not only missing a great deal of fun, you are missing out on some of the biggest opportunities, and reasons to attend a conference in the frst place.

So what are the reasons you should stick around for the social or the vendor drawing ? Prizes include: - PS4 VR - Nintendo Switch - Roomba - Pluralsight gift cards - And MORE!

Personal Valuables/Electronics

A reminder that the parking lot and venue should not be considered secure, so you shouldn’t leave anything valuable there.

Looking forward to seeing you there!!
