PIPELINE 2017 is just around the corner!

Code Of Conduct

Prior to attending PIPELINE 2017, please read our Code of Conduct. Every year we make an active effort to encourage diversity of attendees and speakers, and it is incumbent upon all of us to provide a safe learning environment for one another.

Keynote and Invited Speaker

Dan North will be our keynote speaker on “Ops and Operability” and Rachel Laycock will be our invited speaker on “Continuous Delivery At Scale“. We’re looking forward to hearing from both Dan and Rachel!

Schedule and Open Spaces

Details on our 2017 schedule and speakers can be found online. Aside from Dan and Rachel, our speakers were selected via blind submission to ensure each proposal was assessed on its merits. We have speakers from the UK and abroad, plus someone called “Dave Farley” who keeps passing blind submission each year…
All of our talks are categorised as Beginner, Intermediate, Expert, or All so you can choose what is best for you. We also have some Open Space sessions, in which speakers and attendees can share ideas about a particular topic within Continuous Delivery. The pre-selected themes for PIPELINE 2017 are Culture, Infrastructure, and Testing, and you are encouraged to bring your questions!


PIPELINE is run by a group of independent Continuous Delivery specialists operating as a not-for-profit company, so to make PIPELINE affordable for attendees we rely on the generosity of our sponsors to cover the cost of the venue, catering, etc. Please take the time to visit our sponsors in the Garden Suite – they would welcome the chance for a chat.

PIPELINE Social and LondonCD Meetup

After the conference, please feel free to join us for drinks and nibbles from 17:30 onwards at a pub less than 5 minutes walk from the venue. A number of folks from LondonCD will be there too so good conversation is guaranteed!

We look forward to seeing you at PIPELINE!
