On Thursday, Oct 27 and Friday, Oct 28 devopsdays is coming back to Ghent.
Two years after the 5 year devopsdays anniversary we are back in town!
Are you up to the task to present your devops best practices? We would be happy to hear your story and best practices. Any devops related topic is welcome to be discussed. Culture? Automation? Metrics? Sharing? It’s up to you!
Can you tell your story in 5 minutes? Or are you up for a longer talk of 30-45 minutes? Or do you want to be a member of a panel? Submit your proposal and become part of devopsdays Ghent.
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:
- broad appeal: How will your talk play out in a room of people with a variety of backgrounds? Technical deep dives need more levels to provide value for the whole room, some of whom might not use your specific tool.
- new local presenters: 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. We are happy to provide guidance/coaching for new speakers upon request.
- under-represented voices: We want to hear all voices, including those that may speak less frequently at similar events. Whether you’re in a field not typically thought of as a technology field, you’re in a large, traditional organization, or you’re the only person at your organization with your background, we are interested in your unique experience.
- original content: We prefer talks not already presented at another event, especially another one in the local area or one available in recorded form.
- no third-party submissions: If a PR firm or your marketing department is proposing the talk, you’ve already shown that as a speaker you’re distant from the process. This is a small community-driven event, and speakers need to be directly engaged with the organizers and attendees.
- 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.
Our code of conduct can be found on the devopsdays website.
