Proposed Session

Make it catchy with a few words that capture the essence of the session.

Tell attendees why they should check-out your session. What are they going to learn? Why should they be excited? This will be part of the published schedule and program.

Optional. Please give us any information beyond the Description above that would help us evaluate the proposal. What makes this session great? Where else have you spoken? Is this a new topic? This will only be visible to the planning committee.

Ignite talks are 5-minutes long, and the slides auto-change. Read more about the format here:

We are always on the lookout for good Ignite talks, and have seen a drop in submissions over the last few years.

Planning your own conference? Get started with BusyConf

The DevOpsDays PDX Call for Proposals is now open! The CFP closes May 15, 11:59:59 PM PT, and speakers will be notified in early June.

DevOpsDays PDX takes place September 8th to 10th at the Oregon Convention Center. September 8th will be workshops and unconference. The main conference program will be September 9th and 10th.

Please use this form to submit for one of the eight 30-minute talk slots or a 5-minute Ignite talk. There will also be open space sessions at the event, but both proposal and selection will happen during the event. All selected speakers will receive a free ticket to the event.

If you are selected as a full-length speaker, based in North America, and your employer doesn’t cover the trip, we are happy to offer travel assistance though reimbursement up to a certain amount. We’ve been super successful and want to share our success with you! This isn’t part of the consideration during the selection process — in fact, we won't ask if you want to take part until after speakers have been selected. The question of if your employer covers it is on the honor system.
