Since 2015, we’ve been assembling the DevOps Enterprise Forum in Portland, Oregon, for three days to identify and create written guidance for the top problems facing the community—however, in the spring of 2020, the entire world changed. The COVID-19 pandemic had reached around the globe and changed the way we live, work, educate...everything. So, for the first time, the annual DevOps Enterprise Forum, we conducted the three days virtually—and it amazingly captured so much of the creative, serendipitous, generative, and high-learning magic that’s been the hallmark of the event in prior years.

A special thanks goes to this year’s Forum sponsor, LaunchDarkly. And most importantly a huge thank you to this year’s Forum participants, who contribute their valuable time and expertise and always go above and beyond to put together these resources for the entire technology community to share and learn.

The DevOps Enterprise Journal is published twice a year, with an issue of the collected DevOps Enterprise Forum papers and an issue of collected white papers inspired by the best of the DevOps Enterprise Summit talks. Each issue is curated by thought-leading editors and peer reviewers from the DevOps community.with each issue being curated by thought-leading editors and peer reviewers from the DevOps community.
