Over the five years, we've come a long way: we get a lot of submissions that are refinements and/or testimonials of the traditional devops topics: infrastructure as code, kanban, large enterprise, continuous delivery ... Obviously we value these topics very much. But, this would not be the anniversary edition, if we want to give this a new twist: we want you to expand yours and other people's minds by suggesting speakers/topics are not traditionally suggested. We especially welcome suggestions with relation to other scientific fields.
In short blow our brains aways by suggesting something radically new.
Besides the suggest a speaker/topic we also have the traditional ways to propose a session:
A proposal for a talk/panel during the conference part : these are 30 minute slots that will have all people's full attention as everybody will be in that one room.
An Ignite talk that will be presented during the Ignite sessions: these 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 opening. Check the openspace format for more information
