KCD Italy CFP 2022
Thanks for your interest in submitting for KCD Italy 2022.
In Italy there is a thriving Kubernetes and cloud-native community, meet-up in several cities, events and amazing professionals growing expertise and developing great products.
KCD Italy brings together hundreds of passionate IT professionals, IT executives, cloud operators, and technology providers to discuss cloud computing and to learn about Kubernetes.
This is your chance for making your voice heard in this amazing context!
First time speaker?
First time submitting? 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 this event. And we are looking for many more diverse voices!
What information should you include?
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 Italy. Ideally, we would like to group talks into two tracks:
Community, focusing on cloud native projects and technologies.
Enterprise, focusing on use cases, lessons learned.
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. Let’s give room to the community!
Kubernetes Day Italy 2022 is your chance to take the stage and share your cloud-native journey with thousands of passionate IT professionals.
The talk should cover 30 minutes + 15 minutes for the Q&A time!
- Open May 16th 2022 - 12:00 PDT
- Close September 2nd 2022 - 12:00 PDT
- Notification September 30th 2022.
Recommended language for talks and presentations is Italian, but we are more than happy to accept english talks and presentations from international speakers.
We are running this event in-person (detail will follow after CFP closing). Therefore we expect the speaker to participate in person, as mentioned above.
Don't miss the chance to take the stage!
