"I attended the fantastic Women in DevOps - New Age of DevOps - event at the beautiful Condé Nast headquarters in London. I’m new to the tech industry and this was the very first tech meet-up I attended. The amazing line up of speakers from really well-known and innovative organisations, as well as the focus of women in tech, caught my attention.
It was inspiring to meet some of the speakers and hear their stories of how they got into tech and the exciting platforms they’re working on. Attending this Women in DevOps event was
a great social welcome into tech meet-ups and inspired me to attend many more. I was made to feel so welcome by the event organisers and everyone there was really friendly. I’m currently looking for my first job in tech and meet-ups like Women in DevOps are invaluable for engaging and networking with tech professionals. I’ll definitely be at future Women in DevOps events – can’t recommend them enough!"
LOUISE NORRIS - JUNIOR DEVELOPER
"One of the best meetups I've been to in the five years of events. Excellent talks and a lot friendlier atmosphere than usual meetups."
"Brilliant. Unlike most DevOps meet ups there wasn’t a single line of code. Just, purely useful insights and views. Very refreshing - Thank You! 😊 "
"It was perfect! Thank you all for your efforts in putting together such an awesome event. You should all be very proud!"
"The talk and the panel were amazing! Venue and food were amazing as well."
"Women in DevOps has re-energised my passion for reliability engineering and nurturing devops culture in organisations. The women I met at WID have inspired me to stay curious and dedicated to my chosen field. The Women in DevOps events stand out for their diversity and inclusivity. It could be taken to the next level by co-hosting events with other underrepresented tech groups like Coding Black Females.
I wanted to connect with other women working reliability engineering, learn from their experiences, and encourage a new generation of women in devops. WID/SODA have been indispensable in introducing me to new organisations and offering me an opportunity to speak about my experience as a career changer into devops. It was an incredible opportunity to speak on a WID panel at the FT. I got to hear what other amazing women in the industry are doing and thinking about, as well as sharing some of my experiences."
SARAH YOUNG - SOFTWARE ENGINEER
"I have really enjoyed working with the Women in DevOps team. They work collaboratively with speakers and panelists to incorporate their interests and skills into the event topics which makes the events really fun to do. They are also good at providing opportunities for new speakers, which I think is incredibly valuable to improve diversity of speakers at conferences and meet ups in the tech industry."
Last week on the sunny coast of Silicon Beach we launched our Women in DevOps LA debut at Google’s offices. Los Angeles, known for its hot tech scene; filled with a flourishing hub of innovative companies and tech leaders enabled us to discuss how we can tackle the gender DevOps gap in California.
