KCD UK 2023
Kubernetes Community Days UK is back! This year's edition will take place on October 17 - 18 at CodeNode, London. We are excited to welcome back our community in person, and we look forward to getting as many CFP submissions as possible! Here are the guidelines if you are thinking of submitting. And if you have more questions, please don't hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
Talks are either 30 minutes in length, including Q&A (which is completely optional) or lightning talks of 5 minutes.
Talk sessions can include up to 2 speakers, and topics should be relevant to the current state of the Kubernetes and Cloud Native Ecosystem. Some topics we would love to see:
Success and failure stories - Experiences from the trenches are highly valuable to the community.
Technical deep-dives - Share your expertise on technical topics.
Open Source project demonstrations - Do you contribute to a project that’s part of the Kubernetes and Cloud Native ecosystem? Talk about the what, why, and how!
Please note: Vendor-focused talks and sales pitches aren't likely to impress our program committee. We welcome submissions from vendors, however, please ensure your talk aligns with the community focus and is relevant to the Cloud Native open source ecosystem.
First time speaker?
Fear not! Community driven conferences are a great place to get started as a technical speaker. We have a friendly and inclusive team of experienced speakers that would be more than happy to discuss talk ideas and assist with talk proposals. We strongly encourage you to get in touch with us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org and submit your talk ideas!
What information should you include?
Please endeavour to address some or all of the following points:
What benefit/value does your talk bring to the Kubernetes and/or Cloud Native Ecosystem?
What do you hope the audience will learn from your talk?
What makes you the best person to deliver this talk? If you have a unique experience we would love to hear it!
All speakers receive a free conference pass. If you are personally funding your attendance, we have some budget to cover reasonable travel and accommodation costs.
International speakers: We're honoured that you are considering speaking at our event! Please note - we've chosen to focus our efforts on empowering local speakers, as such we will be prioritising submissions from speakers in the UK & Ireland.
By submitting a session to Kubernetes Community Days UK, you are agreeing to adhere to the Code of Conduct should your proposal be accepted.
