The DevOpsDays Portland Call for Proposals is now open! The CFP closes May 9, 11:59:59 PM PT, and speakers will be notified by the end of May.

DevOpsDays Portland takes place August 1 and 2 at the Oregon Convention Center.

Please use this form to submit for one of the eight 30-minute talk slots or a 5-minute Ignite talk. There will also be open space sessions at the event, but both proposal and selection will happen during the event. All selected speakers will receive a free ticket to the event.

New this year: If you are selected as a full-length speaker, and your employer doesn’t cover the trip, we are happy to offer travel assistance. We’ve been super successful and want to share our success with you! This isn’t part of the consideration during the selection process — in fact, we won't ask if you want to take part until after speakers have been selected. The question of if your employer covers it is on the honor system.

Also new this year: First time speaker, a little rusty, or looking to take your skills up a notch? We would be happy to find you a mentor to help you make your talk even better. There’s a checkbox in the CFP form to see if you’d be interested. We won’t consider this checkbox when selecting talks, so please feel free to take advantage of it.
