The PowerShell and DevOps Global Summit 2018 will be returning to the Meydenbauer center, Bellevue WA on 9-12 April 2018. PowerShell, and DevOps, experts from all over the world, including PowerShell team members, will once again join together to discuss and learn about maximizing PowerShell in the workplace in fast-paced, knowledge packed presentations. The Summit’s also the place to explore and further your knowledge of DevOps principles and practices in a Windows environment, make new connections, learn new techniques, and offer something to your peers and colleagues. If you want to share your PowerShell or DevOps expertise, then this is your official call to submit presentations for selection!
The bulk of our sessions follow our now traditional 45-minute format. These sessions cover a wide aspect of PowerShell and DevOps expertise. Your proposed session should fit into one of the following areas:
- PowerShell Internals – A deep look into the inside workings of PowerShell and practical solutions that are built from them.
- PowerShell Features Deep Dive – These presentations are a deep look into configuring and working with PowerShell features and capabilities.
- DevOps in Practice – A deep dive into putting the DevOps principles into practice. Presentations should focus on what you’re doing and how you’re doing it.
We are open to presentations across the entire ecosystem that has been built around PowerShell or the various DevOps tools. This includes Microsoft platforms and products that have PowerShell-based management tools as well as third party products. New topics will be preferred over the recycling of older topics. However, we are still open to sessions on ‘older’ topics that address areas of great confusion or uncertainty.
We have a number agenda slots available for double length sessions. These sessions delve into the depths of a topic covering areas that need more than 45 minutes.

We look for an abstract that’s compelling and makes us want to see your session – so spend time writing a great abstract! We want sessions that offer real-world usability combined with ‘WOW, nobody talks about THAT’ awesomeness. We want to see the code. Don’t just talk about it – this is a PowerShell summit not a PowerPoint Summit. If your session isn’t predominately demonstrations its probably not right for the Summit. Summit presentations are intense and intimate often with plenty of audience interaction. You must expect questions and discussions. This is not a “lecture to the audience” event.
Please note all sessions are to be delivered in English.
Internet connectivity is available in the conference center but bandwidth is limited. If you rely on connecting to the cloud for your sessions then consider recording any demonstrations as a contingency.
