The call for speakers is open for Velocity

Velocity brings together a diverse, inclusive, and supportive community of engineers who are focused on sharing best practices and solutions for building and maintaining complex distributed systems.

What are your favorite tools and techniques for working on systems that are too large to understand, too complex to control, and that fail in unpredictable ways? Apply to speak at Velocity to share your experiences, failures, and victories with operations and systems engineering professionals from around the world.

We're looking for speakers on both technical and non-technical topics that address:

  • Systems Monitoring & Orchestration
  • Resilient, Performant & Secure Distributed Systems
  • Systems Architecture & Infrastructure
  • Distributed State
  • Leadership & Career Growth

Submit your ideas by April 10, 2018 for your chance to be a part of the leading conference on DevOps, Distributed Systems Engineering, Security, and Performance.
