Review our guidelines and suggestions

Tips and tricks

We value original ideas applicable to real-world problems

Our audience expects to get inspiration, learn, and apply their learnings to their current problems.

If your talk contains live coding, we would prefer if you could pre-record it

If you'd rather do it live, make sure you have practiced enough beforehand.

Make sure that the talk abstract contains as much detail about the presentation as possible

That includes possible extras and uncommon setups (audio, network, etc).

It is OK to mention your employer, but if you push it too hard the audience will complain

This applies even if your employer is sponsoring Devops Barcelona.

Keep the audience in mind

There will be professional developers, sysadmins, devops, managers as well as newcomers.

Make sure your talk is engaging.

If it can be summarized in a blog post, it is probably not worth a 40 minutes talk.

Submissions we would like to see

Success / failure stories about applying an approach / technology to a business problem, lessons learned. Innovative ideas / technologies, applicable to current problems. Inspiring talks that reflect upon shared problems and will leave the audience with renewed motivation, new ideas, etc. As a general guideline, our motto is "problems of today, ideas from the future".

Submissions we would NOT like to see

Commercial talks about a product. Recruitment talks to highlight your current employer and attract talent. Talks that are not in English. Talks that do not comply with our Code Of Conduct.
