KCD Austria 2023
Thank you for your interest in submitting for KCD Austria 2023.
On the 26-27th of September in Vienna, KCD Austria will bring together hundreds of IT executives, cloud operators, and technology providers to discuss cloud computing and to learn about Cloud Native technologies. KCD Austria is supported by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and organized by supporting companies.
First time submitting? Don’t feel intimidated.
KCD Austria is an excellent way to get to know the community and share your ideas and the work that you are doing. You do not need to be a chief architect or long-time industry pundit to submit a proposal, in fact, we strongly encourage first-time speakers to submit talks for all of our events.
Consider the Following as You Write Your Proposal:
What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
Why should YOU be the one to give this talk? You have a unique story. Tell it.
Explain how this fits into Kubernetes Community Days and overall Open Source Ecosystem.
We definitely do not expect every presentation to have code snippets and technical deep-dives but here are two things that you should avoid when preparing your proposal because they are almost always rejected due to the fact that they take away from the integrity of our events, and are rarely well-received by conference attendees:
Sales or Marketing Pitches
Unlicensed or Potentially Closed-Source Technologies
There are plenty of ways to give a presentation about projects and technologies without focusing on company-specific efforts. Remember the things to consider that we mentioned above when writing your proposal and think of ways to make it interesting for attendees while still letting you share your experiences, educate the community about an issue, or generate interest in a project.
