ServerlessDays London 2019

The third edition of the original ServerlessDays event comes back in 2019, bigger and better. We’re moving venue across London from St John’s Hoxton, to Imperial College in South Kensington. Set off Exhibition Road with the Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum, and Royal Albert Hall as neighbours, Imperial College gives us a venue that allows us to grow and expand the program. With an expected attendance of 500 in 2019, ServerlessDays London will be the biggest Serverless event in Europe in 2019.

ServerlessDays is a one day, community focused, single track event centered on real world 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. 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

We believe serverless is a big tent and are looking for speakers with years of experience who have solved real-world problems using Serverless platforms, through to people taking their first steps in serverless.


We have two formats of talk you can submit for.

  • Talk - 25 minutes
  • Lightning Talk - 10 minutes

We are looking for:

  • Are you new to Serverless? Tell us about your serverless learning journey!
  • Experience with Serverless frameworks in production and under load?
  • Serverless promises to lower the total cost of ownership: what are real world experiences?
  • Serverless vs. vendor lock-in: experiences with company politics and/or real world problems, and strategies to overcome resistance?
  • Are you doing something genuinely cool? Or built the most amazing rube goldberg machine! Tell us about it? Let’s have some fun with this!

We have 8 available speaking slots. Even if you’re not successful in the CFP we will be running an Open Spaces session in addition to an Unpanel, so there are a lot of opportunities to get involved.

CFP Process

Inclusivity is very important to us and the CFP process is anonymised to minimise selection bias. Please be aware of this when submitting your response to not add your company name or identifying information in the your talk description or subject. Otherwise a poor sod will have to remove it before it goes to the CFP committee.

The CFP selection committee is made up of Simona Cotin (Microsoft), James Thomas (IBM), Paul Johnston and Ant Stanley. In the situation where a response mentions the vendor of one of the committee members, that member will not be involved in the adjudication of that response.

ServerlessDays London is a non-profit community event. We will cover travel and accommodation costs where possible.

Code Of Conduct

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at our conference are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Organisers will enforce this code throughout the event. We are expecting cooperation from all participants to help ensuring a safe environment for everybody.
