o11yfest is a multi-day virtual technology conference focused on empowering DevOps practitioners with solutions that improve observability over systems and processes. It will be held online using a online platform on May 16-19 2022, hosted by community leaders and Growgistics LLC in collaboration with leading experts and companies in the continuous delivery and systems reliability ecosystem.
The conference is designed to promote awareness in OpenTelemetry and other relevant projects and techniques related to increasing visibility, transparency, and traceability of mission-critical data across software teams. o11yfest is in its third year of operation as a grass-roots event whose aim is to encourage sharing of knowledge and development of the discipline of observability engineering.
We’re looking for you to record either 10-15min or 20-25min technical presentations around observability culture and practices, especially field studies and collaborations. All speakers are encouraged to be available for 10 minutes after their assigned session play time for live questions afterwards, and organizers are happy to help assign the best time for the speaker, given the daily live stream schedule 4pm-8pm GMT / 11am-3pm EST / 8am-12pm PST.
Sample topics include experiences using OpenTelemetry as a form of instrumentation, application of observability tooling to analyze the data, and otherwise how to improve observability in and across organizations practicing continuous delivery and DevOps. In particular, we are looking to highlight the business value of embracing observability across all kinds of end-user organizations. We’re also keen to hear about making observability batteries-included by default, so that more people can experience the joys of telemetry in their favorite frameworks and tools.
The typical audience includes SREs, developers, automation engineers, and cloud operations professionals. We encourage first-time speakers to submit, and the co-chairs will offer coaching to any selected speaker who would like assistance or feedback.
Please ensure that you include in the notes field an outline of the topics you intend to cover in your submission.
This conference is anticipating between 500-1000 attendees. There will be keynotes each day plus 4-6 presentations, interspersed with booth visiting, games, and other activities. Thus, we’re looking for outstanding presentations to cover the spectrum from small to large implementers, and greenfield to brownfield.
