We are looking for the best talks and speakers related to the topics listed below. You can see talks from previous conferences on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/SaltStack/playlists
Your submission doesn't have to be perfect. If selected, we'll refine it with you. That said, we can't and won't be able to accept all talk proposals, so make sure to submit your best.
If a talk is accepted as part of the SaltConf18 Diversity Scholarship program, speakers receive a complimentary SaltConf18 main conference pass and the option to also attend SaltConf18 Pre-Conference training. Accepted Diversity Scholarship speakers can also request SaltStack support for their travel and lodging expenses.
Talk content should be about 30 minutes, but you will have 50 minutes total to accommodate introductions, demos, audience Q&A, etc. We are looking for talks on the following topics:
- Intelligent, event-driven automation- Security vulnerability remediation and policy audit and compliance- Software-defined data center systems, including networks and storage- Complex, large-scale deployments or implementations- Multi-cloud orchestration, configuration, and control- What SaltStack configuration management means to you- How you use SaltStack for more than just configuration management- DevOps orchestration and task automation- SaltStack performance, efficiency and/or ROI benchmarks- Unique SaltStack use cases (e.g. Internet of things (IoT); Serverless; etc.)
Feel free to ask questions or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, if your submission is accepted we assume we have your permission to promote your talk as part of the SaltConf18 program. We do plan to record video of all SaltConf18 talks and make the recordings available on the SaltStack YouTube channel and web properties. If this is a problem, please let us know.
All speakers must adhere to the SaltConf18 code of conduct: http://saltconf.com/code-of-conduct/
