The DevOpsDays Berlin have been cancelled for this year due to Corona. “Though there were good arguments for running the conference, most of us felt uncomfortable to expose people to a potential danger that isn’t fully understood yet”, the organizers said. They decided to suspend the event in 2020 and to hold it again in 2021. Holding the conference online was not really an option for the Berlin crew. Other DevOpsDays who did an online version of their event had great success with the attendee numbers, but they felt that this would miss out with the most important part of the conference: Bringing people together in person and the community aspect of the event. The Berlin organizers are planning an event for 2021, which can be expected to fall into the same time as this or the last years: Beginning to middle of fall 2021.
Entries from this Call for Papers won’t be kept for next year (“because the only thing older than a ‘Tech Talk’ from a year ago is yesterday’s newspaper”). Who already proposed would need to create a new entry next year. The DevOpsDays Berlin organizers thank all speakers for their awesome talk and session proposals this year, and encourage and invite people to propose again in 2021.
