Salt Lake City DevOps Days Call for Proposals

Salt Lake City DevOps Days Call for Proposals

Salt Lake City DevOps days is an open conference for discussing methods of improving the interaction between developers and operations teams. It the natural convergence of these two diametrically opposed groups as they become one functional agile team.

As we put together this event, we’re asking that you put together a proposal so that we can shape the future of DevOps in the Silicon Slopes.

You can participate as a speaker in three ways:

Propose a talk or panel for our morning conference: there is two days with six 45 minutes slots. We can have up to 200 people in the auditorium.

Propose an Ignite talk that will be presented during the Ignite sessions: Ignite sessions are 5 minutes slots with slides changing every 15 seconds (20 slides total) also presented to all attendees in one room.

Openspace session: even without a prepared presentation we welcome the discussion and interaction by having people propose a session on the fly during the openspace portion of the conference.  Check the openspace format for more information

  • Developing Tools for Operations teams
  • The Future of Configuration Management
