Our call for proposals (CFP) is officially open

Speaking proposals for Puppetize Live 2018 presentations are now open, and we want to hear from you! This year, we welcome session topics from all who are looking to level up and share their expertise at the premier conference for DevOps and automation. In particular, we’re excited to see talks on the following topics:

Scaling DevOps and automation success

How have you scaled automation across your enterprise? For example, how have you extended DevOps practices to security and networking teams, or expanded automation across multiple platforms, services and teams? What challenges did you face along the way and what were some positive business outcomes?

Cloud management and migration

How did you use Puppet’s product portfolio to manage cloud resources and accelerate migration to the cloud? How did you approach your cloud migration strategy and what lessons can you share to help others migrate more successfully?

Application and container delivery

How are you adopting continuous delivery and automating software releases for your traditional and container-based applications? What tools and processes have you adopted for container-based application delivery, and how have you had to shift your mindset?

Submit your talk proposal

  • Submissions are due by midnight PDT on 30 July 2018.
  • Session length is 25 minutes for the events in San Francisco, Sydney, and Amsterdam.
  • This year, we've added 5- or 10-minute lightning talks on the live stream. These will be pre-recorded to avoid technical difficulties, and will be part of the 24-hour live stream experience.

Note: The Puppetize Live CFP closes on 30 July 2018. Speakers chosen for Puppetize Live will receive free admission to the event. Gaining access to the CFP submission process requires signing up for a Cvent account.

Supporting diversity, equity and inclusion: scholarships available

Puppet actively works to increase diversity within our company, our community and our industry. We are offering a limited number of travel scholarships for accepted Puppetize Live speakers who come from underrepresented backgrounds who require financial support to participate.
