The EnvoyCon 2020 Call for Proposals (CFP) is now closed. For any questions regarding the CFP process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We are accepting talk proposals (30-minute talks + 10-minute lightning talks) around the following topics, with experience levels ranging from beginner to expert:
Using and Integrating with Envoy (both within modern “cloud native” stacks such as Kubernetes but also in “legacy” on-prem and IaaS infrastructures)
Reminder: This is a community conference — proposals should emphasize real world usage and technology rather than blatant product pitches. Vendor product pitches will be rejected; instead, vendors should consider submitting deep tech talks about systems they have built using Envoy, problems they have run into during integration with Envoy, etc.
Preparing to Submit
Preparing to Submit Your Proposal
While it is not our intention to provide you with strict instructions on how to prepare your proposal, we hope you will take a moment to review the following guidelines that we have put together to help you prepare the best submission possible. To get started, here are three things that you should consider before submitting your proposal:
- What are you hoping to get from your presentation?
- What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
- How will your presentation help better the ecosystem?
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.
First Time Submitting? Don’t Feel Intimidated
Linux Foundation events are an excellent way to get to know the community and share your ideas and the work that you are doing and we strongly encourage first-time speakers to submit talks for our events. In the instance that you aren’t sure about your abstract, reach out to us and we will be more than happy to work with you on your proposal.
How To Give a Great Tech Talk
In the instance that your talk is accepted, we want to make sure that you give the best presentation possible. To do this, we enlisted the help of seasoned conference speaker Josh Berkus who has prepared an in-depth tutorial on “How to Give a Great Tech Talk”.
Code of Conduct
The Linux Foundation is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at all of our events. We encourage all submitters to review our complete Code of Conduct.
