Scalyr CEO to Address DevOps Community at Jenkins World 2018

Operational Visibility Is the Name of the Game for Successful Software Delivery

SAN MATEO, Calif.--()--Scalyr, the provider of blazing-fast log management for both engineering and operations, today announced CEO and Founder Steve Newman will present at Jenkins World 2018, the annual gathering of DevOps practitioners using Jenkins for continuous delivery.

The conference, held at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis September 16-19, is the largest gathering of Jenkins users in the world who will attend sessions, workshops, training and other learning opportunities. Newman’s talk, titled “Necessity is the Mother of (Re)Invention,” will delve into the technology trends – like microservices, data architecture complexity, and increasing demands to create amazing experiences for consumers with no downtime or interruptions – that place incredible pressure on front-line engineers to achieve better operational visibility. An engineer and entrepreneur himself, Newman will draw on his firsthand experience and extensive user data to help attendees learn about practical advice for using data processing engines that deliver search results at extraordinary speed – 1.5 terabytes per second to be exact – and how the economy of scale can work in their favor. His presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, September 18 at 1:30 p.m. in Golden Gate Ballroom B.

“Jenkins World brings together leaders in software delivery and DevOps for practical information to succeed in today’s high-velocity environment,” said Steve Newman, CEO and founder of Scalyr. “I’m excited to be able to share our experience helping engineering and DevOps teams scale and move at the speed of modern business.”
