Come and speak at the most awaited Conference of 2018 in Cairo!

DevOpsDays Cairo is a one-day event (17th of September). You can learn and share your knowledge with the people from all around the world while enjoying great culture in Egypt.

Please stay tuned for more information about devopsdays Cairo 2018!

CFP Description

There are three 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).

  3. Open Space: If you’d like to lead a group discussion during the attendee-suggested Open Space breakout sessions, it is not necessary to propose it ahead of time. Those topics are suggested in person at the conference. If you’d like to demo your product or service, you should sponsor the event and demo it at your table.

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 role in Digital Transformation’.

  • 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

  • Unfortunately, we will not be able to support costs of travelling or accommodation for foreign speakers. Yet, we still would love to have you with us! Cairo hotels are not expensive and we could get you good rates :)
