DevOpsDays is coming to Mint Museum Uptown in Charlotte on February 6th & 7th, 2017!
DevOpsDays is at the forefront of shared knowledge, collaboration, culture and inclusion of developers, operations and anyone involved with technology. The conference will include a mix of presentations, ignite talks, ignite karaoke and open spaces covering a broad range of culture, devops and technical topics. Your ticket includes breakfast, lunch, conference swag and ignite karaoke!
We are accepting talks in both the 5 minute ignite format, and a more traditional 30 minute format.
Competition will be fierce especially for the 30 minute slots; the organizer committee will vote on which presentations are selected. We understand if the talk isn’t written yet, but we want enough details to understand what your time will be filled with and what people will learn from it.
Remember DevOpsDays is for DevOps practitioners looking to take whatever they’re doing to the next level. Be specific. “Metrics are good yay” isn’t enough of a takeaway, so for example if you pitch “Metrics and DevOps” we’d like to hear more about what your content will be - what metrics exactly, what actionable things people will take away, etc. Culture talks are good, but similarly, we’re looking for more actionable details than “DevOps is about culture. Hug more.” If you don’t have a lot of specifics, we would suggest going for an ignite talk instead of a full talk.
Demos are welcome but, of course, there’s always that slim chance that wireless will give you trouble or other technical issues may come into play - just prep well and have a backup plan.
You can run your own laptop for full talk slots - again, have a backup plan (dropbox, thumb drive, save in multiple formats - be paranoid). You’ll be asked to provide ignite talks in PDF format a few days before the conference; those will all be run by the ignite talk coordinator from their system on auto-advance.
