Leading Open Source Technologist Joins Experts at Sauce Labs’
Global DevOps Community Event, May 3-5

SAN FRANCISCO – April 26, 2022 –Sauce Labs Inc, the leading provider of continuous testing and error reporting solutions, has announced that Kelsey Hightower, a significant contributor to open source software, inaugural winner of the CNCF Top Ambassador award for his work on the Kubernetes project, and currently  Principal Engineer at Google, will speak at its annual SauceCon Conference May 3-5, 2022.

SauceCon is in its sixth year of bringing the world’s leading open-source and automated software test experts together with a global community of developers and DevOps leaders.  The pressure to accelerate the delivery of high-quality code combined with the zero-tolerance consumers have for poor online experiences is driving many companies to reassess how they test and deliver software, and how they remediate errors in production. To bring a greater understanding of the need to ‘reimagine test,’ the virtual keynotes at SauceCon are free to attend and delegates can register for the event here.

The full agenda is available to view on the Saucecon.com website and features the following keynotes:
