Infrastructure WebConf Europe Vol.4

Online event

Our Infrastructure WebConf allows technologists interested in DevOps to listen and to ask questions to our speakers and Infrastructure specialists at Thoughtworks. With this event series, we aim to create an open conversation on the state of Infrastructure.

After three successful online events, we were looking forward to our fourth edition of Infrastructure WebConf Europe.

This time, Thoughtworks’ subject matter experts explore best practices and thought-provoking learnings on application-driven infrastructure engineering, corporate security and platform building.
