Announcing HashiConf 2017

HashiConf is HashiCorp's annual technology and user conference. This year, HashiConf takes place September 18-20 in Austin, Texas. In addition to a full day of product trainings on September 18th, there will be two days of technical talks, discussions, keynotes, and networking with peers. HashiConf is the best opportunity to share knowledge with the HashiCorp community about the future of infrastructure as companies adopt DevOps principles and cloud technologies.

We have surveyed organizations that use HashiCorp products, and it is clear that they have two main objectives: how to adopt DevOps principles and how to adopt cloud technologies. There are three necessary layers of infrastructure that play critical roles in both of these transitions: core infrastructure, security, and the application platform. HashiConf will weave together topics from these three categories. The conference content will help attendees establish a blueprint to provision, secure, and run any infrastructure for any application.

Last year over 500 people attended HashiConf in Napa, California. The keynotes and talks are available on YouTube, and photos from the event are on Flickr. We are excited to bring HashiConf to a new city. Austin provides a unique charm, culture, and a central location. This year’s sessions will take place at the JW Marriott Austin.

Conference Format

The format will be similar to previous HashiConfs. There will be a dedicated first day for training courses. These training courses are sold separately and are not included in the conference ticket. The next two days will be the core of the official conference. This will include three tracks and corresponding technical talks. Attendees may purchase tickets for the training courses, for the conference, or both.

On September 18, there will be four full-day training courses taught by HashiCorp engineers and staff. The content will be comprehensive, offering both informative discussion and hands-on learning. Because these are all-day trainings, you may not register for multiple training courses. All courses happen concurrently. The course are as follows:

Building Secure Applications with Vault

This course is aimed at both HashiCorp Vault administrators operationalizing Vault and developers writing applications that utilize Vault secrets. The first part will cover operational components of Vault and the second part will cover techniques for integrating Vault secrets into your application.

Intermediate Vault

This course covers intermediate and advanced features of HashiCorp Vault. The course is aimed at both Vault administrators operationalizing Vault and users wishing to acquire secrets from Vault.

Modern Infrastructure with Terraform

This course shows how to use HashiCorp Terraform tool for provisioning and managing infrastructure as code.

Scheduling Applications at Scale with Nomad

This course is aimed at users who want to use HashiCorp Nomad to create and manage a scalable, multi-region, heterogenous, and self-healing production environment that provides the flexibility to run any of your application workloads. Experience with Nomad is not required.

These are full-day courses and they will also be onsite at the JW Marriott Austin. To secure a spot in one of the trainings, purchase your ticket now.
