ATARC Federal DevOps Summit

The ATARC Federal DevOps Summit will be held on March 1, 2018 at the Marriott at Metro Center in Washington, D.C.


This educational, one-day symposium will examine the DevOps tools and techniques being used by the Federal Government to create an agile development cycle that provides greater efficiency and cost savings than traditional methods.


The morning session features speakers and panels with government thought leaders, while the afternoon includes the MITRE-ATARC DevOps Collaboration Symposium, where government, academic and industry subject matter experts brainstorm and whiteboard DevOps challenge areas.


All ATARC events are free to government and full-time academics, and participants are eligible for CPE credits from (ISC)², the World’s largest IT security organization.
