Tech conferences are an excellent way to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and innovations in the tech industry, network with fellow professionals, and hear from industry thought leaders. After organizations moved their tech conferences online during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, many events in 2023 are planning to return to an in-person format — good news for those of us who are waiting to start traveling again!
Looking to attend a DevOps conference in 2023? Here are some options you may like.
1. DeveloperWeek (February 2023)
Some 8000 professionals are expected to attend this conference in the San Francisco Bay Area in February. DeveloperWeek also has a virtual edition, if you are not able to make it in person. Check out the DevLead conference, DevOps Summit, while you are at the conference.
2. Think 2023 (May 2023)
IBM Think is an annual conference exploring big data and analytics, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, and hybrid cloud computing. The conference also lets attendees learn about the latest IBM products and services and connect with the IBM team and community.

The Linux Foundation calls the Open Source Summit “the premier conference for open-source developers, technologists, and community leaders.” This year’s gathering in Vancouver will feature events on topics ranging from cloud computing and containers to AI and sustainability.
