CFP Description

We are going beyond the DevOps hype and our expectation is to have a full smoke-free conference with talks about real DEV-DATA-QA-SEC-OPS (tools, good practices, troubleshooting, delivery, team management, etc). This year the idea is to include all topics that help professionals on their daily jobs. Although is ops-centric we all need skills from the full stack (the real one, not the one in job descriptions) to collaborate with others.

We would like to have a common thread throughout the event so each talk adds increasing value to the audience. Don’t worry, it will be on us to coordinate with speakers how to achieve this.

Topics we like:

Infrastructure and architecture, do’s and don’ts
Cloud infrastructure, running a datacenter, setting a datacenter on fire, etc.
Orchestration / Configuration management
GNU/Linux, BSD, MSDOS, Xenix, etc.
Development pipelines, shipping code from dev to prod (how to do it and how not to do it).
QA/QC for sysadmins
Security, secure infrastructure, dealing with BYOD, secure apps
Development: $program_language for ops, writing simple tools with go/python/pascal
Databases: mysql, postgres, nosql too. scaling, monitoring, configuration 101, etc.

Did we forget about the nerd topics? Not at all. is also a provocative, inspiring, DIY, poor-man’s, low resources experience. We’d like to learn about the cutting edge nerd stuff you are doing so talks about IoT, 3D printing, videogames, explosives, chemistry, physics, astronomy (and astrology), psychology, medicine, music, art, etc. are highly ranked too!

Criteria for selection:

  • Speakers from all backgrounds are welcomed and we do not take in consideration age, gender, social background, or work area, as long as it’s related with the topics mentioned above.
  • Our priority is always our audience and not the speaker. Self-promoting lectures will not be considered, despite the speaker’s seniority or popularity.
  • Lecture’s content must be of interest for our audience and the topics involved must be highly relevant and complementary to the previous ones. You should not only be inspirational, but also educational and enlightening. You can refer to our YouTube channel for practical examples:
  • Final decision and selection is done internally by the core team. We will contact you to follow up on confirmation and logistics.
