DevOpsDays Kraków 2020 is the first southern Poland edition of this volunteer-driven worldwide series of events. It will take place on April 21st at the Variete Theatre. We are excited to bring this technical conference covering topics of Cloud Native, Containers and Microservices, Lean and DevOps approach to the heart of Europe. We expect 300+ IT professionals and enthusiasts eager to learn from each other’s experiences. We are looking forward to meeting you! Devopsdays is a worldwide series of technical conferences covering topics of software development, IT infrastructure operations, and the intersection of them. It’s both a technical conference and a conference focusing on culture, processes, and structure within organizations. We encourage both technologists and business people to attend, learn and share experiences. Come to Kraków and join us to share this big DevOps adventure! 😉
There are three ways to propose a topic at DevOpsDays:
1. A 30-minute talk presented during the conference, usually in the mornings.
2. An Ignite talk presented during the Ignite sessions (scheduling varies). These are 5 minutes slots with slides changing every 15 seconds (20 slides total).
3. Open Space: If you’d like to lead a group discussion during the attendee-suggested Open Space breakout sessions, it is not necessary to propose it ahead of time. Those topics are suggested in person at the conference.
These are some topic suggestions from our 2020 program: – Microservices, Containerization and Serverless – CI/CD + automation – Public, private, hybrid clouds – IaaS + Configuration Management – Scaling out DevOps – Observability – Tracking, Monitoring, Logging and Alerting – Site Reliability Engineering – Building culture – Health, stress, and burnout – Privacy/data security – Quantifying productivity, failure, and risk metrics – Professional development, teaching, training, and mentorship – DevOps in the enterprise – Future of DevOps
Some advice for your submission:
1. It’s always great to be specific; the more you can tell us the better, but please do keep it concise (e.g. 20 or so lines should be enough).
2. Detail is awesome, but not as important as explaining why your proposal would be interesting to conference attendees.
3. Be Original; we will consider talks that have already been presented elsewhere, but we prefer new talks.
4. No vendor pitches. As much as we value vendors and sponsors, we are not going to accept a talk that appears to be a pitch for your product.
5. Nominations welcome… if you know someone who has content/experience relevant to the DevOps conversation, please point us in their direction!
6. Multiple proposals from the same person are welcome but will most likely not lead to multiple acceptance as that would result in very homogeneous programming
