First time submitting? Don’t feel intimidated!
KCD Kerala is an excellent way to get to know the community, share your ideas, and demonstrate your work. You don't 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 the overall Open Source Ecosystem.
We definitely don't expect every presentation to have code snippets and technical deep dives. However, here are two things that you should avoid when preparing your proposal. They're almost always rejected because they take away from the integrity of the event 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.
