If you want to want to tell the world - or just your fellow Reg readers - how you’ve dragged your software development operations into the 21st century, we want to hear from you.
The Reg and Heise will be bringing Germany’s Continuous Lifecycle conference to the UK next May, giving you the chance to immerse yourself in the full range of DevOps tools and methodologies, over three fun-packed days.
We’ll be putting on around 40 talks over two days, plus a day of deep workshops, but we don’t just want to be parroting the “industry” agenda, any more than you do.
We’ve got leading thinkers, such as Dave Farley, and practitioners, like Pearson’s Chris Jackson, involved in setting the agenda. But we also need you.
So if you’ve got a story about the reality of putting agile processes into practice, or how Chef or Puppet really did change your life (for better or worse), or how your team are now happier because you did that containerisation course, we really want to hear from you.
We’re not looking for an essay - not at this stage anyway. We just want a short synopsis of your proposal. And if you’re more experienced in hacking code than slinging slides, don’t worry. We can help you shape your ideas for the big stage.
The key is to produce something that will either help the other attendees solve their own problems, understand technology or methods they haven’t worked with before, or simply make them laugh.
What we don’t want is straight product pitches - though you can speak to our commercial team about sponsorship opportunities.
The deadline for proposals for papers is December 1, and the editorial committee will be meeting shortly after to finalise the program.
