Serverless is a recent addition to the long list of technologies that promise to accelerate software delivery, reduce cost of compute ownership and provide unicorns and rainbows for all. And like all industry buzzwords it generates enthusiasm and scepticism in equal measure – how to move beyond the hype?

JeffConf was born in the spirit of Paul Johnston’s blog post, “Serverless is just a name. We could have called it Jeff”, an attempt to move beyond the Serverless buzzword and focus on the practical use of function as a service platforms and the value they provide. It is a one day, community focused, single track event centred on real world Jeff (or Serverless) based solutions. It’s about fostering a community and helping all of us learn from each other as we embrace a new way of building applications.

JeffConf Hamburg will be the third JeffConf after London and Milan with an expected attendance of 200. We extend a warm welcome to attendees from the Hamburg area and beyond! Our focus is on building a community through sharing of experiences, accessible without a large commitment of time or money (tickets start from just €35).

CFP Description

Serverless is a recent addition to the long list of technologies that promise to accelerate software delivery, reduce cost of compute ownership and provide unicorns and rainbows for all. And like all industry buzzwords it generates enthusiasm and scepticism in equal measure – how to move beyond the hype?

JeffConf was born in the spirit of Paul Johnston’s blog post, “Serverless is just a name. We could have called it Jeff”, an attempt to move beyond the Serverless buzzword and focus on the practical use of function as a service platforms and the value they provide. It is a one day, community focused, single track event centred on real world Jeff (or Serverless) based solutions. It’s about fostering a community and helping all of us learn from each other as we embrace a new way of building applications.

JeffConf Hamburg will be the third JeffConf after London and Milan with an expected attendance of 200. We extend a warm welcome to attendees from the Hamburg area and beyond! Our focus is on building a community through sharing of experiences, accessible without a large commitment of time or money (tickets start from just €35).

We are primarily looking for speakers who have solved real-world problems using Serverless platforms and want to inspire others by sharing their experiences. We are also looking for lightning talks and workshop proposals! (we are planning a day with workshops before the conference day.)

Talks

We are looking especially for:

  • Experience with Jeff (Serverless) frameworks in production and under load
  • Jeff (Serverless) promises to lower the total cost of ownership: what are real world experiences?
  • Jeff (Serverless) vs. vendor lock-in: experiences with company politics and/or real world problems, and strategies to overcome resistance.

Workshops

We are looking for full-day hands-on workshops, e.g. for a particular framework or use-case. Workshops will be subject to a small charge so that trainers can be compensated for their efforts. Please note that until we have gauged the demand we are unable to commit to providing a particular workshop.

Notes

  • Inclusivity is very important to us and the CFP process is anonymised to minimise selection bias. We will be offering discounted or free diversity tickets in partnership with organisations such as Geekettes Hamburg.
  • JeffConf is a non-profit community event. At the moment we cannot guarantee help with travel and hotel costs, but please don’t let that prevent you from submitting a proposal!
  • Talks and Workshops can be either in English or German, but English is preferred.
  • Speakers will be invited to a speakers dinner the day before the conference.
  • Being accepted as a speaker of course gives you free entrance!
