I am very happy and thankful to be part of Rootconf in Bangalore again. My friends in Bangalore organise an amazing event and I can definitely recommend it.

Here is the official press release …

Setting up and managing infrastructure in technology companies is a complex, expensive and challenging proposition. HasGeek’s Rootconf community brought together by the annual conference will discuss and deliberate on this topic including:

  1. Running secure systems and using security tools such as OSINT to track vulnerabilities.
  2. Automating infrastructure security, and gearing teams towards a culture of development, security and operations.
  3. How companies such as Uber, Amazon, GO-JEK, Alibaba Cloud and others run their infrastructure at scale and in a distributed manner, across geographies.
  4. Importance of open standards and how engineers can choose their tools wisely to ensure that they don’t get locked-in with vendors.
