Building a Faster, Stronger Web
17–19 November, 2014
Barcelona, Spain
“An avalanche of information that eats you and spits you back out in a better shape. It is more of an incubator of ideas than a conference.”

Velocity is about the people and technologies that make the Web fast, scalable, resilient, and highly available. From ecommerce to mobile to the cloud, Velocity is where the future of the Web takes shape.

Feel like I've learned more in 3 days than the last 3 years!"
–Jason Vaughan, SRE at Fortune 500 Retailer
As someone completely new to the industry, I feel I gained a much better understanding of operations and web performance by attending Velocity. I can't wait to incorporate some of the new things I learned into my work."
–Erik Konecny, Kohler Co. View the Agenda

Velocity is unlike any other technical conference on the planet.

It's an experience that will cause you to look at your work, the technologies you use, and your organization in completely new ways.

It's the conference where the big ideas around DevOps, web operations, web performance, and mobile explode into being. You'll hear from the best speakers in the industry. You'll take part in sessions that range from highly technical (hardcore math and statistics), to practical (demonstrations of monitoring, clustering, and analytics), to cultural (let's break down the silos and move ahead). Some will blow your mind.

Velocity draws attendees from Fortune 500 companies to the newest, most exciting startups, all joining together for a legendary learning and networking experience.

A faster, stronger web is no longer an option; it's an expectation. And that's just the beginning.

Join us 17-19 November at the Centre Convencions Internacional de Barcelona in Spain. Take a look at the schedule and start making your plans today.

Four reasons to come to Velocity:

  1. Because a fast and high performing web experience isn't a feature anymore, it's an expectation.
    If you measure your success in milliseconds, you'll find your time well spent as you immerse yourself in the latest tools, technologies, and expert advice on getting your site to perform at warp speed.
  2. Not only do you have to keep operations running but you must act with efficiency and scale.
    At Velocity, you'll learn what's important to monitor and when, understand which metrics make a difference, see how some of the world's largest sites deal with config management, failover, downtime, best practices, and other key issues in the operations side of the Web.
  3. Since mobile is how your users experience the Web. Get your mobile-first strategy in place.
    As mobile takes center stage with consumers, user expectations have skyrocketed. At Velocity, you won't just get the tools you need to make the mobile web faster, you'll learn how to measure, analyze, and improve mobile performance, learn how UX/UI play an key role in performance, and improve operations and deployment so your apps are never out of date or unavailable.
  4. And cultural change is key to your success in all of these areas and others.
    Are you ready to fully embrace a culture of performance and operations in your organization? To stay resilient, manage complex systems of both the technical and human varieties, in the face of near-impossible odds? Future-proof the health of your organization with the right skills from Velocity's Culture track.
