Atmosphere is a conference dedicated to companies which rapidly develop their services on the Web. Most of them have a common goal - pages need to load quickly and optimally, services are to be available and reliable. When you look at a web page as a combination of business components, programming and server maintenance it turns out that the correct functioning of the service is not easy. Constantly changing features require the cooperation of developers, IT operations and management staff described as a DevOps processes. Increasing volume of traffic implies a refinement of systems architecture allowing for sustainable performance and scalability.
The Atmosphere conference aims to answer the questions on how to develop, deploy and maintain rapidly growing systems for both existing and new platforms.
Attending a conference is a professionally rewarding experience. The conference aims to become a meeting point for representatives of four departments: project management, DevOps, programming and IT operations.
The conference is organized by the Proidea Foundation with a cooperation of the main conference partner, Allegro Group.
