CFP Description

There are two ways to propose a topic at devopsdays:

  1. A 30-minute talk presented during the conference, usually in the mornings.

  2. An Ignite talk presented during the Ignite sessions (scheduling varies). These are 5 minutes slots with slides changing every 15 seconds (20 slides total).

Main Criteria:

Choosing talks is part art, part science; here are some factors we consider when trying to assemble the best possible program for our local audience:

  • Relevant to our theme: which is ‘DevOps Amid COVID-19!’.

  • Broad appeal: how will your talk play out in a room of people with a variety of backgrounds? Specific tools talks are not preferred.

  • Local experiences: you are the only one who can tell your story. We are very interested in the challenges and successes being experienced in our local area.

  • Under-represented voices: we want to hear all voices including those that may speak less frequently at similar events. Whether you are in a field not typically thought of as a technology field or you are the only person at your organization with your background, we are still interested in your unique experience.

  • Original content: we will consider talks that have already been presented elsewhere, but we prefer new talks.

  • No vendor pitches: as much as we value vendors and sponsors, we are not going to accept a talk that appears to be a pitch for your product.

Tips:

  • Be specific… we aren’t mind readers (a description of about 20 lines is about right)

  • Detail is good… but not as important as explaining why your proposal would be interesting

  • Propose your own talk; don’t have someone else do it for you.

  • Nominations welcome… if you know someone who has content/experience relevant to the DevOps conversation, please point us in their direction!

  • Multiple proposals welcome… just follow the other rules
