The PowerShell and DevOps Global Summit 2020 will be returning to the Meydenbauer Center, Bellevue WA from April 27th to April 30th 2020. 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 is 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!

CFP Description


This year, with feedback from our community, we’re expanding the scope of our content. While OnRamp will take care of those new to the PowerShell/DevOps world, we’re looking to fill the gaps with intermediate content, all the way to master level.

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, it’s probably not right for the Summit. Our summary of the 2019 CFP may give you insight into improving your proposal’s chances of being accepted.

Summit presentations often have plenty of audience interaction. You should expect questions and discussions. This is not a “lecture to the audience” event.

If you have any doubts about the suitability of a particular session, please contact us via content@powershell.org or #conferences - we’re always happy to discuss proposed sessions.

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.

Longer sessions

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.


Please note all sessions are to be delivered in English.

Connectivity and equipment

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.

Presenter will provide all equipment needed to deliver session(s), including a laptop or other computer. Presenter must be able to provide video by means of HDMI, or their own adapter - VGA is NOT supported. Presenter must be able to manually select an appropriate screen resolution for video output. Typically, 1024x768 or 1280x720 are preferred.
