Dash is an annual conference about building & scaling the next generation of applications, infrastructure, & technical teams. The two-day conference brings together more than 1,200 engineers across dev & ops who are taking their systems & organizations to the next level of velocity, performance, reliability, & scale. Dash features a mix of speaking sessions, hands-on labs & trainings, & opportunities to make new connections & exchange ideas.

In our pursuit to push our systems to do more, both applications & infrastructure are growing more complex. As this happens, we're running into a common problem: performance. Hear stories about how companies are building faster applications & systems that deliver better user experiences.
Dash is about scaling up & speeding up, but we can't do that with the tools & architectures of the past. We've moved from monoliths to microservices, servers to containers; but what's next? Hear how others are architecting the applications & infrastructure of the future.
Brook's Law tells us that we can't simply add more people to get more done. Scaling teams is a delicate balance of adding new members, while managing work, mentoring teammates, building processes, & growing culture. Hear how others are building their teams & setting them up for success.
TRANSFORMATIONS & CASE STUDIES
Organizations & technical systems aren't static. As we encounter new challenges, we have to adapt our approach & our technologies to solve them. Hear about first hand experience of technical & organizational evolutions & revolutions so that you may follow their success (or avoid mistakes).
Get hands-on training at all levels of experience with industry experts.
Pinpointing Microservice Bottlenecks in Python with Datadog APM
Traces allow us to see units of work as they pass across our subsystems. We'll introduce distributed tracing as a method to gain visibility & insight into these distributed applications.
Creating Observable Applications in Go & Kubernetes
In this workshop, we'll dive into adding to the confidence of deployment in complex environments, with APM & Distributed Traces.
Ensuring Reliability with SLOs
In this workshop you'll learn how to define SLOs & monitor the right service level indicators to ensure reliability. Armed with this information, we'll introduce chaos into a sample application & learn how to respond effectively using error budgets.
