DevOpsDays Berlin: Call for Papers open. Get involved!

The organizers of DevOpsDays Berlin once again invite IT professionals with DevOps experience to propose a talk and show their interest in contributing. DevOpsDays is a technical conference, aimed at developers, sysadmins and anyone else involved in technology, whether expert or beginner. The idea behind it: Understanding each others way of working, improving code and cooperation. It was the series of DevOpsDays conferences that made the term DevOps as popular as it is today.

The Call for Papers for DevOpsDays Berlin runs until July 05, 2020. Papers can be submitted at cfp.devopsdays.berlin/2020/.

If you have a hiring success story, can talk about diversity in teams or leadership, have a great tale to tell about spreading DevOps to the rest of your company or organization: Don’t hesitate to propose.

There are three different formats

  • 30-minute talk: Presented during the conference, usually in the mornings. Anyone can submit a presentation. The DevopsDays Berlin program council will choose the best presentations among these submissions, which will appear in the agenda of the conference.
  • Ignite talk: Presented during the Ignite sessions (scheduling varies). The ignite talks are a valuable portion of knowledge, lasting for 5 minutes. 20 slides change automatically every 15 seconds giving a condensed overview on a topic.
  • Hands-On session: Presentations of technical nature lasting for 45 minutes. Speakers should demonstrate a part of their work and give people the chance to ask questions. No product demos allowed.

There will also be Open Space sessions during the conference. The Open Space format is a very interesting and simple one. Short time before the Open Space starts, all attendees can suggest topics and vote on what topic is the most wanted. After this, participants create discussion groups. It is not necessary to propose ahead of time. The topics are suggested in person at the conference.

Get involved!

DevOpsDays events are unique in that they are entirely volunteer-supported, and not hosted by an industry vendor or for profit. If you are in any way interested in supporting that, be it by speaking or by volunteering at the event: Reach out to the organizers. Get involved!

Kendall Nelson – The OpenStack Foundation

OpenStack:K8s::Peanutbutter:Jelly

OpenStack and k8s are often pitted against one another as if they were incompatible and you had to choose between them which simply isn’t true. But there are numerous use cases where Ops run Kubernetes on top of OpenStack, they run Kubernetes supplemented with OpenStack services, or a containerized OpenStack. Companies ARE using Kubernetes with OpenStack, says Kendall Nelson, Upstream Developer Advocate at the OpenStack Foundation.

DevOpsDays Berlin: Last Tickets

On Nov 27 – 28 2019 the DevOpsDays Berlin are taking place!

Success factor open space

One of the success factors of previous DevOpsDays has been the open space format. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s communicative. It fosters the sharing of ideas and insights in the good old fashion, in a non-technical way by just talking to each other. This doesn’t require any effort besides registering and showing up at the event.

Great international line-up

We have introduced the wonderful DevOpsDays line-up before, but let me drop some of these names again, because of the pleasant expectations they arise: Monica Sarbu (Elastic), Beth North, Daniel Löffelholz (ThoughtWorks), Leonardo di Donato (Sysdig), Jessica Anderson (Meltwater)… Or, put differently: Wrapped around the open spaces will be a great line-up of international speakers! Learn more about it here.

Register now, listen carefully and throw yourself into discussion!

Das bieten die Deutschen OpenStack Tage

Cloud Computing ist die Lösung für flexibles und effizientes IT-Management – ob als dezentrale Datenablage oder Plattform für unterschiedliche Systeme. Die Deutschen OpenStack Tage (DOST) haben sich in den vergangenen Jahren als wegweisende Fachkonferenz rund um den Einsatz von Open Infrastructure und Storage Lösungen wie Kubernetes, Ceph, Docker und OpenStack etabliert.

Neben einem umfangreichen Vortragsprogramm bieten die DOST zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, sich in Sachen Open Infrastructure weiter zu bilden und mit Vertretern der Branche in Kontakt zu treten.

Bilde Dich weiter in einem von vier Workshops

Vier ganztägige Workshops am 24. September 2019 bilden den Auftakt der Konferenz.

  • Erfahre im Ansible Workshop, wie Du einfache Aufgaben oder komplexe Deployments automatisierst und eine eigene Sammlung nützlicher Playbooks erstellst.
  • Lerne im OpenStack Workshop die Grundlagen des Cloud Computings und die Elemente der OpenStack-Architektur und deren Benutzung kennen.
  • Erarbeite Dir im Ceph Workshop die Grundlagen und Eigenschaften eines Software Defined Storage (SDS).
