DevOpsDays Bengaluru is a conference for DevOps practitioners. It brings together development, operations, QA, Security, management, and leadership together to collaborate and learn from each other. It is both a technical conference and a conference focusing on culture, processes, and structure within organisations. We encourage both technologists and business people to attend, learn and share experiences.

This year we will have a two-day event with a mix of 30-minutes presentations,  presentations, and open spaces

A great opportunity for networking, mingling, and having a good time!

There are three ways to propose a topic at DevOpsDays:

  • A 30-minute talk presented during the conference.
  • An Ignite talk presented during the Ignite sessions (scheduling varies). These are 5 minutes slots with slides changing every 15 seconds (20 slides total).
  • 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. If you'd like to demo your product or service, you should sponsor the event and demo it at your table.

What topics are we looking for?

We’ll be accepting submissions for the following topics:

  • DevOps Principles, Culture and Transformation
  • AI adoption in DevOps
  • Developer Enablement
  • Developer Productivity Frameworks like DORA, SPACE etc.
  • Safety Culture
  • Reliability
  • Technical Debt
  • Security
  • Observability
  • Cloud Native Transformation
  • Platform Engineering
  • Emerging Technologies: eBPF, WASM etc.

What helps your proposal get accepted?

  • Make sure your abstract is sufficiently long and detailed.
  • Hint not only at the problem, but also at the solution.
  • Touch on why your experience matters and give data points where helpful.
  • Hearing what worked is great and hearing what didn’t work and what you learned from it is even better.
  • If you have spoken before, include links. If you have never spoken publicly, tell us that, too. We’re looking for a mix of new and experienced speakers.

Some factors we consider when we assemble the final program includes (but is not limited to):

  • Broad appeal: How will your talk play out in a room of people with a variety of backgrounds? Remember that DevOpsDays is a single track conference. Not everyone in the room will use your specific tool.
  • Original content: content not yet presented at other conferences, or a new angle to an existing problem
  • New presenters: people who are new to space and have insightful stuff to say; we want to hear everybody's voice
  • Local presenters: We like to include stories about challenges and successes experienced in our local area.
  • Under-represented voices: We want to hear all voices, including those that may speak less frequently at similar events.
  • No vendor pitches: we value vendors and sponsors, but this is not the right forum
  • No third-party submissions: If a PR firm or your marketing department is proposing the talk, you’ve already shown that as a speaker you’re distant from the process. This is a small community-driven event, and speakers need to be directly engaged with the organizers and attendees.
