Come and speak at the most awaited Conference of 2020 in Istanbul! 5 years in a row! For video recordings see the YouTube DevOpsDays Istanbul is a one-day conference (Thursday September 17, 2020) and one-day workshop (Friday September 18, 2020). You can learn and share your knowledge with the people from all around the world while enjoying great food and culture in Istanbul.
Presentations: Anyone can submit a presentation via the Call for Papers. DevopsDays Program Council will choose the best presentations among these submissions, which will appear in the agenda of the conference. It is expected for each presentation to be in a 30-40 minute time window.
Ignites: The ignite talks are a valuable portion of knowledge, lasting for 5 minutes. Slides change automatically every 15 seconds. Every slide focuses on the specific topic from the DevOps field and gives a condensed overview.
Workshops: Full/Half day training with a dedicated audience in a dedicated space for the workshop. We expect workshop proposals to be more detailed than a presentation proposal.
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 will consider talks that have already been presented elsewhere, but we prefer talks that the local area isn’t likely to have already seen. no third-party submissions: This is a small community-driven event, and speakers need to be directly engaged with the organizers and attendees. 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. 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.
