Organizer's Summit 2023

Devopsdays Global Organizer Summit 2023

August 8, Willis Tower, Chicago, IL

The devopsdays Global Organizer Summit 2023 is a one-day event for organizers of devopsdays events. It is a chance to meet other organizers, share ideas, and learn from each other. It takes place the day before devopsdays Chicago, and the ticket is a free add-on to registration for that event.

We will spend the day with short talks from other organizers, Open Spaces, and more!

There are two types of sessions you can submit for the summit:
1. Talk: a 10 minutes long plenary session about a thing you learned and want to share with other organizers.
2. Open Space: If you'd like to lead a group discussion, it is not needed, but prefered, to propose it ahead of time. Open Spaces are 30 minutes long, and while we're intimately familiar with the format, for this particular event we're expecting Open Spaces to almost turn into collab sessions.

General Guidelines:

  • Be concise, but include as much detail as is necessary to convey your idea.
  • Please provide at least three concrete takeaways that the audience will get from your talk
  • Multiple entries are welcome.
  • Submissions must be made by one of the proposed presenters; we do not accept proposals submitted on behalf of others
  • All presentations must conform to the code of conduct.
  • Proposals must be submitted via this site (click "Submit a Proposal" at the bottom of this page). If you have questions about our CFP process, please email: [[email protected] ]
