Kubernetes on Edge Day

This event has passed. View the upcoming KubeCon and other CNCF Events.

Call For Proposals (CFP)

Overview

Edge Computing will be 4x larger than cloud and will generate 75% of data worldwide by 2025. With hardware and software spread across hundreds or thousands of locations, the only feasible way to manage these distributed systems are the simple paradigms around observability, loosely coupled systems, declarative APIs, and robust automation, that have made cloud native technologies so successful in the cloud. Kubernetes is already becoming a key part of the edge ecosystem, driving integrations and operations. Join Kubernetes on the Edge at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon to get in on the ground floor and shape the future intersection of cloud native and edge computing.

Kubernetes on Edge Day 2021 brings together developers and adopters across the entire cloud native ecosystem to share their lessons learned in building, breaking, and bettering their edge infrastructure. Any developer interested in learning how to deploy Kubernetes and cloud native projects at the edge should attend.

If you have not yet used the CFP system, you will be required to register and create an account before submitting.
Please CREATE YOUR ACCOUNT before submitting a proposal for the first time. Thank you!

Important Notes

  • All speakers are required to adhere to our Code of Conduct. We also highly recommend that speakers take our Inclusive Speaker Orientation Course.
  • Complimentary Passes For Speakers – One complimentary pass for the event will be provided per submission.
  • Avoid sales or marketing pitches and discussing unlicensed or potentially closed-source technologies when preparing your proposal; these talks 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.
  • All accepted speakers are required to submit their slides by March 23.

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:

  1. What are you hoping to get from your presentation?
  2. What do you expect the audience to gain from your presentation?
  3. 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”.
