SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 4, 2018--Spinnaker Summit, the high-performance DevOps event for the world’s top software delivery engineers, announces its initial slate of industry speakers. The event will feature industry experts such as Andy Glover, Director, Delivery Engineering at Netflix, Raji Chokaiyan, Director of Software Engineering at Capital One, Steven Kim, Software Engineering Manager, Google and Alolita Sharma, Principal Technologist at AWS.

Now in its second year, Spinnaker Summit focuses on the rapid adoption of the open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform as a key enterprise choice for software delivery and management. The Continuous Delivery platform, born out of Netflix with the support of engineers from Google, Oracle, Microsoft, and other major tech companies is now being embraced for its safe and reliable deployments by an increasing number of companies including Waze, JPMorgan Chase, Target and Etsy.

Spinnaker Summit 2018 will take place October 8-10, 2018 in the heart of Seattle and bring together developers, architects, leaders and Fortune 100 companies tasked with maintaining mission critical applications.

“Spinnaker builds on the many lessons learned since going all-in with the cloud,” Said Andy Glover of Netflix. “Continuous Delivery is a serious competitive advantage for any company. We look forward to spending three days in Seattle with some of the brightest minds in the community and helping those who are looking to fully embrace Continuous Delivery.”

“An increasing number of companies are shifting towards this much more efficient software delivery practice; a movement forged by tech leaders like Google, Amazon, Netflix, Facebook, Tesla, and Adobe. Even so, many software companies are still evaluating the best platforms for scaling software release management and delivery. If you have the desire to increase the volume of your software delivery, this event provides a rare opportunity to get the perspective of large enterprises that you may aspire to emulate,” said Pete Erickson, founder of Modev.

Spinnaker Summit is organized by Modev and includes sponsors such as Netflix, Google, Mirantis, OpsMx, Kenzan, Armory, JFrog, with community partners such as PDXWIT, Chick Tech, Ada Developers Academy and She's Coding.
