Speakers receive complimentary admission to the 2-day summit and the 1-day pre-summit Training Day on November 4th.
* Practical Examples for Vertical Markets — Ad Tech, FinTech, Fraud Detection, Customer/User Data, eCommerce, Media/Multimedia, Social, B2B or B2C Apps, IoT, and more
* Migrations — How did you get from where you were in the past to where you are today? What were the limitations of other systems you needed to overcome? How did Scylla address those issues?
* Hard Numbers — clusters, nodes, CPUs, RAM and disk, data size, growth, IOPS, throughput, latencies, benchmark, and stress test results (think graphs, chart, and tables)
* War Stories — what were the hardest Big Data challenges you faced? How did you solve them? What lessons learned can you pass along?
TIPS AND TRICKSFrom getting started to performance optimization to disaster management, tell us your devops secrets, or unleash your chaos monkey!
* Computer Languages and Dev Environments — What your favorite languages and tools? Are you a Pythonista? Doing something interesting in Golang or rust?
* Is This Open Source? — Got a Github repo to share? Our attendees would love to walk your code
* Integrations into Big Data Ecosystem — Share your stack! Kafka, Spark, other SQL and NoSQL systems; time series, graph, in-memory integrations (think “block diagrams”)
* Seastar — At the heart of Scylla, the Seastar infrastructure can be used for other projects as well. What sort of systems architecture challenges are you tackling with Seastar?
2. Give your proposal a simple and straightforward title
3. Include as much detail about the presentation as possible
4. Keep proposals free of marketing and sales
5. We tend to ignore proposals submitted by PR agencies and require that we can reach the suggested participant directly. Improve the proposal’s chances of being accepted by working closely with the presenter(s) to write a jargon-free proposal that contains clear value for attendees
6. 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
7. Explain why people will want to attend and what they’ll take away from it
8. Live demos sometimes don’t go as planned, so we don’t recommend them
