Announcing HashiConf 2016

Announcing HashiConf 2016

Apr 26, 2016 | Jana Boruta

We are excited to announce HashiConf from September 6th to September 8th at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, California. HashiConf is an opportunity for the community to come together to share knowledge and improve the state of software infrastructure.

HashiConf gives us an opportunity to present our vision for the future of infrastructure. Last year we announced Nomad and Otto during the opening keynote. The keynotes and talks from last year can be viewed here. This year, we will push the state of the art in infrastructure even further. You won't want to miss it.

Join us for one day of training and two days of talks to define the future of infrastructure and how to get there.

Conference Format

HashiConf is a three day conference, with the first day dedicated to training courses and the final two days filled with conference talks. Attendees can attend just training, just the talks, or both.

The training day will have three courses:

  • Building Resilient Applications with Consul: This training is aimed at users who desire an in-depth exploration of Consul including service discovery, monitoring, and best practices for using Consul at scale.

  • Building Secure Applications with Vault: This training is designed for both Vault administrators operationalizing vault and developers writing applications that utilize Vault secrets.

  • Intermediate Terraform: This training is aimed at existing Terraform users who desire an in-depth exploration of Terraform's core and advanced features.

We are excited to engage with our users, teach best practices with HashiCorp tooling, and answer questions from the group.

Each day of the conference will have two tracks. One track will be dedicated to "Workflows", which will cover how to construct efficient workflows to build and change infrastructure. This includes topics related to Vagrant, Otto, Packer, and Terraform, as well as higher-level themes of DevOps, continuous delivery, and organizational culture. The other track will be focused on "Runtime", which will cover how to successfully orchestrate and maintain production applications at scale. This includes topics related to Serf, Consul, Nomad, and Vault, as well as higher-level themes of microservices, grid-based architectures, containers, and securing dynamic environments.

With both conference talks and training, HashiConf 2016 will define the future of infrastructure and teach you how to get there.
