"The DevOps Enterprise community has demonstrated over and over its skills of overcoming unforeseen challenges. They will certainly continue to be a force for good in helping organizations cope with the unprecedented challenges posed by COVID-19. We are excited to further the work of this amazing community, whose mission goes on," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Unicorn Project, and co-author of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook and Accelerate.

"In response to COVID-19, to serve the best interest of our attendees, speakers, and the greater DevOps community, we will be moving the London summit to a virtual setting and remain focused on carrying out the mission of our amazing community. I am fully aware that achieving the type of magic that occurs at a physical conference is difficult to do in a virtual format, but I'd like to set your expectations that this event will be, if not the best, as close to as awesome of an experience as the previous DevOps Enterprise Summits we've run."

DevOps Enterprise Summit is a conference for technology leaders and practitioners at large, complex organizations implementing DevOps principles and practices. The event programming emphasizes the next-generation operations and infrastructure needed to lead widespread change efforts in large organizations.

The virtual London event features keynotes, panels, breakouts, a community space for spontaneous gatherings, and other networking and collaborative activities to enhance the virtual learning experience for attendees. Sessions will be led by leaders who are pioneering these practices in large and complex organizations across a wide range of industries.
