Jenkins World 2017 will be held in San Francisco at the Marriott Marquis on August 30-31, 2017. The conference will bring together continuous delivery thought leaders, IT executives, DevOps practitioners, Jenkins users and partners from all over the world. The conference offers a great opportunity to learn and explore, network face-to-face with peers and help shape the next evolution of Jenkins development and solutions for DevOps.
We are looking forward to receiving amazing proposals from industry experts to novice developers in the Jenkins as well as the DevOps community. Get creative! Share and showcase your unique approach to utilizing Jenkins and DevOps technology.
Jenkins World 2017 is accepting talks on:
- Jenkins Show ‘n Tell - It’s all about that demo. These sessions are technically advanced with some code sharing, heavy on demos and just a tad bit of slides.
- Jenkins War Stories - Share your first-hand Jenkins experience and lessons learned. Celebrate and inspire your innovative solutions with attendees.
- Jenkins General Talks - If your session does not fall into any of the above tracks but it’s related to Jenkins, we want to hear about it! Sessions in this track can include the latest in tech culture/trends, innovative designs/architectures/process, business strategies, building community, plugins, etc.
- DevOps - Sessions in this track do not need to be Jenkins related. We suggest DevOps methods and practices such as DevOps in the enterprise, quantifying productivity, CI/CD, automation, containerization, performance monitoring, configuration management and so forth.
- Sessions are 45 minutes (Q & A included), and lightning talks are 10 minutes.
We highly discourage overt marketing pitches. We encourage breakout sessions, demos and compelling case studies with transferable, tangible lessons and other topics. Some examples are below (topics are not solely limited to these examples):
- Plug-in development
- Specific Jenkins applications that solve testing/building problems in particular areas: mobility, enterprise/web/cloud applications, and UI testing, etc
- Jenkins best practices, tips and tricks
- Beyond Java (i.e., Jenkins with PHP, Ruby, etc)
To help promote your session before, during and after the conference, if your proposal is accepted you will be asked to:
- Sign the speaker release form
- Sign the video release form
- Write a technical blog about your session
- Participate in a virtual session and live Q&A after the conference
