Chances to Speak at O’Reilly Media’s Upcoming Conferences

Bob Gourley

O'Reilly Media is looking for speakers to share lessons learned at several of their upcoming conferences. Presentations could be a success story, cautionary tale, hard-won lesson, or perhaps even a worthy failure.

Here are some of the upcoming events to consider speaking at:

O'Reilly Artificial Intelligence Conference in San Francisco

The O’Reilly AI Conference is coming to San Francisco September 17-20, 2017 to explore the most essential and intriguing topics in intelligence engineering and applied AI. We’re looking for compelling case studies, technical sessions, tear-downs of both successful and failed AI projects, technical and organizational best practices, and more. Apply to speak by March 28.

Strata Data Conference in New York 2017 

Strata Data Conference returns to New York September 25-28, 2017. They're looking for speakers to share compelling data case studies, proven best practices, effective new analytic approaches, and exceptional skills with a talented and technical audience.

Strata Data Conference is the leading event for data scientists, analysts, and executives to get up to speed on emerging techniques and technologies. Hear case studies, develop new skills, and share emerging best practices around cutting-edge science and new business fundamentals. The deadline for submissions is April 4, 2017.

Velocity New York 2017

As we shift to focusing on distributed systems, we’re moving away from web performance talks as part of the Velocity program. We invite proposals from system engineers, architects, developers, system administrators, operations managers, site reliability engineers, and more—people on the front lines with stories of great success and worthy failures, especially if they provide clear ideas for what to do next. Deadline to apply is April 18.

Software Architecture in London, UK

We want to hear about real world experience, including the benefits and pitfalls, of architectural decisions. How do frameworks and other architectural underpinnings perform under the crucible of real-world challenges?

Proposals will be considered for both 50 and 90 minute presentations as well as 3-hour tutorials. Fifty-minute sessions will be interspersed throughout the conference to introduce new concepts, a best practice, a view into the future while 90-minute sessions will dive deeper giving you information, techniques, and workflows you can bring back to work and begin using immediately. And, finally, we are looking for intense 3-hour tutorials that involve hands-on examples, working with other attendees, and frameworks and processes to implement for significant change in your current architecture. Apply to speak by May 2.

Velocity London 2017

As we shift our focus to designing and operating distributed systems, we're moving away from frontend web performance talks as part of the Velocity program. We invite proposals from system engineers, architects, developers, system administrators, operations managers, site reliability engineers, and more -- people on the front lines with stories of great success and worthy failures, especially if they provide clear ideas for what to do next. Deadline to apply is 2 May.

Security New York 2017

We invite proposals from practitioners who want to have real conversations about security: security analysts, engineers, and administrators, developers, testers, results-focused QA researchers of all kinds, chief security officers, leaders in risk and audit, and security data scientists. If you’re on the front lines of defense with stories of great success and worthy failure, especially if they provide clear ideas for what to do next, let us hear from you. Deadline to apply is May 18.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform.

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...
Widespread fragmentation is stalling the growth of the IIoT and making it difficult for partners to work together.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
