The 2017 conference will feature four formal tracks – Developer, Operations, Business/Case Studies, and Wildcard – that will explore a variety of new and trending topics, including big data, IoT, analytics, security, scalability and performance, architecture and design, operations and management and development. Speaker proposals are welcome on these topics as well as on a variety of related technologies, including MySQL, MongoDB, Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenStack, Redis, Docker and many more. The conference will also feature sponsored talks.

Breakout sessions are 50 minutes in length, including a Q&A. Tutorial sessions are focused on an immediate and practical application of in-depth knowledge, and are targeted at a level between a training class and a conference breakout session. Tutorial speakers should assume that attendees will have laptops to work through detailed and potentially hands-on presentations. Tutorials are typically three hours in length, including a Q&A, but submissions will also be accepted for full-day, 6-hour tutorials.

Selected speakers will receive a complimentary full conference pass.
