The official Call for Proposals is closed, but we're always open to interesting talks. Have a killer talk and forgot the deadline? Send it over to and we'll make sure to check it out!


Thanks for your interest in speaking at PlatformCon. We talk all things platform here!

All PlatformCon talks are pre-recorded and up to 15min in length. If your talk proposal is accepted, you will receive more detailed guidelines for the talk, presentation, and recording.

Check our list of tracks below to see which one is the best fit, then submit your talk. We look forward to reviewing your submission!

Platform Stories

This track is for practitioners to share their platform journey — from initial steps to building it and rolling it out across the engineering organization. These talks should incorporate technical, cultural, and product design aspects of the platform journey.

Platform Tech

This track is dedicated to deep dives into platform technologies and tooling — from Kubernetes to IaC, service catalogs and GitOps. These talks explore how platform teams solve specific problems with specific tools or how the complexity of some technologies was overcome. 

Platform Blueprints

This track showcases platform blueprints, reference architectures, and best practices for platform setups. These talks dive deep into design considerations and how and why certain combinations of tools were used to build the Internal Developer Platform.

Platform Culture

This track continues discussions about the cultural aspects of platform engineering: platform engineering’s relationship to DevOps and SRE, product management for the platform, platform engineering trends, etc.

Platform Impact

This track focuses on the impact and business value platform engineering initiatives deliver. Talks can highlight C-level perspectives on the platform’s impact on key metrics like time to market, innovation cycles, and overall efficiency. They can also explore how platform leaders secured buy-in for the platform from C-suite and other relevant stakeholders.

How to get your proposal accepted

  • Submit an abstract that is publication-ready. Keep in mind that the proposal also is a form of presenting and shows how you approach conveying information
  • Explain why your talk would be right for the Platform Engineering community
  • Avoid product pitches. We will not reject submissions solely based on the fact they come from a vendor, but we will not accept vendor pitches
  • Submit your talk on your behalf
  • While you can submit more than one proposal, focus on the talks you are most passionate about
