Based on the previous experiences DevOps Underground team have prepared this guideline for the potential speakers. Please read this guideline and prepare your presentation based on those.
DevOps Underground meetups are community events, not marketing opportunities, so please speak about your DevOps experiences instead of pitching your product.
Explain your story. People attending to DevOps Underground meetups are keen to hear about the real-life stories. They can find lots of tutorials from the internet and we believe it’s not easy for the audience to remember the important piece when the speaker goes on a tutorial. DevOps Underground organizers are looking for speakers that will inspire others.
Create a unique and special presentation. Let it be special for the audience as well!
Make a hands-on demo! It’s always great to prove what you are explaining with a live demo!
Be prepared. DevOps Underground meetup audience is curious about technology so they’ll be asking questions for you!
Know your time. Be specific and be precise - we could talk about each and every topic for hours and hours, but you need to be flexible enough to shorten it to the given time.
The conclusion is the key to the listener’s memory. In your presentation, there will be a lot of new information for most of the listeners, so do not forget to have a conclusion slide/-es, where you would point out most important keywords/keynotes of your presentation.
