Scylla Summit 2022 is live online February 9-10!

Scylla Summit is two days of technical content about high-performance, low-latency applications; Scylla use cases; product demonstrations; integrations with other data and streaming ecosystem components and much more.

Share your adventures and achievements building low-latency data-intensive applications.

What our attendees want to hear most:

Building for this Next Tech Cycle — The world is undergoing a massive shift to cloud, to blink-of-an-eye response, petabyte-scale applications. How is your organization driving change?

Real-world Scylla use cases — What are you using Scylla for? On-demand services? Streaming media? AI/ML-driven applications? Shopping carts or customer profiles? Cybersecurity and fraud detection? Time series data or IoT?

War stories — Did you survive a major migration or a datacenter disaster? Everything from design and architecture considerations to POCs, to production deployments, our community loves to hear lessons learned

Integrations into your data ecosystem — Share your stack! Kafka, Spark, AI/ML pipelines, other databases?

JanusGraph use cases — Have billions of edges and vertices? Building amazing systems on top of JanusGraph?

API-first implementations — Did you make a wrapper for CQL? Implement REST or GraphQL? What’s your microservice architecture leveraging Scylla?

Computer languages and development methods — How are you getting the most from your favorite languages, frameworks and toolkits? What are you re-engineering in Rust? Are you a Pythonista?

Operational Insights — What are your intraday traffic patterns like? Are you deploying via Kubernetes? What observability and tracing tools are you using? Running multi-cloud?

Open Source projects — Are you integrating Scylla with an open source project? Got a Github repo to share? Our attendees would love to walk your code

Hard numbers — Our users love learning specifics of your clusters: nodes, CPUs, RAM and disk, data size, replication factors, IOPS, throughput, latencies, benchmark, stress test results and ROI. Trot out your charts & graphs

Tips & Tricks — We'd love to hear your best ideas, from data modeling to performance tuning to unleashing your inner chaos monkey

Next steps — What’s your future plans?

Help us understand why your presentation is the right one for Scylla Summit 2022. Please keep in mind this event is made by and for deeply technical professionals. All presentations and supporting materials must be respectful and inclusive.

Be authentic — Your peers need original ideas with real-world scenarios, relevant examples, and knowledge transfer

Be catchy — Give your proposal a simple and straightforward title that’ll hook them

Be interesting — Make sure the subject will be of interest to others; explain why people will want to attend and what they’ll take away from it

Be complete — Include as much detail about the presentation as possible

Don’t be “pitchy” — Keep proposals free of marketing and sales. We tend to ignore proposals submitted by PR agencies and require that we can reach the suggested participant directly.

Be understandable — While you can certainly cite industry terms, try to write a jargon-free proposal that contains clear value for attendees

Be deliverable — Sessions have a fixed length, and you will not be able to cover everything. The best sessions are concise and focused. Overviews aren’t great in this format; the narrower your topic is, the deeper you can dive into it, giving the audience more to take home
