CI/CD Devroom Call For Proposal - FOSDEM 2022

We are happy to share that the CFP for the CI/CD devroom at FOSDEM 2022, to be held on the 6th of February 2022, is now open. Please note that this year FOSDEM will be virtual again.

We are looking for contributions in the form of presentations (50min) or lightning talks (20min).

Possible topics include:

  • Project showcases, modern tooling
  • Stories from end-users (e.g. success/failure) about:
    • Continuous Integration
    • Continuous Delivery
    • Continuous Deployment
  • Security in Software Supply Chain
  • Interesting use-cases
  • Pipeline standardization
  • BoF sessions

Remark: This may sound obvious but we will only accept talks covering open-source.

Considering the event is online this year, the format of each presentation will be adapted. While the recorded presentation is streaming, attendees will be able to ask questions in a chat. The speaker will have the opportunity to answer them live or prepare better answers for the live Q&A that follow the presentation. Once the session is over, a breakout room will be available to continue discussions with whoever is interested.

If you have any issues or questions about the CFP process, please contact
