Let’s imagine the future together: faster applications, information instantly available from any device, and global communities using it all to create connections as easily as people sitting side-by-side today.
But getting there from here will require us to build systems and applications that are fast, scalable, and resilient. And that will, in turn, require businesses to operate even faster and more nimbly—all in an environment where security and compliance are more important than ever.
At Dash, we want to hear your stories of speed and scalability as you build the next generation of infrastructure, applications, and teams. We’ll bring together over 2,000 of the world’s top developers, systems engineers, and business leaders to share how they accelerate and scale out their teams and systems, how they maintain visibility and focus, and how their work today aligns with their visions for the future.
If you have a success story or a cautionary tale of missteps and lessons learned, this is your opportunity to share it!
Our themes are listed below with some suggested topics, but they are only suggestions. Your stories are unique, and we’d love to hear them. The deadline for submissions is March 19th at 11:59 PM EDT.
Accepted speakers will receive a complimentary conference pass, and participate in a networking reception. Speakers will also receive help in preparing their session and the opportunity to share their experiences with the Datadog community.
In our pursuit to push our systems to do more, both applications and infrastructure are growing more complex. As this happens, we're running into a common problem: performance. Share what you're doing to build faster applications and systems that deliver better user experiences.
Dash is about scaling up and speeding up, but we can't do that with the tools and architectures of the past. We've moved from monoliths to microservices, and from servers to containers, but what's next? Share how you're architecting the applications and infrastructure of the future.
Brooks's Law tells us that we can't simply add more people to get more done. Scaling teams is a delicate balance of adding new members while managing work, mentoring teammates, building processes, and growing culture. Share how you're building your team and setting them up for success.
Transformations & Case Studies
Organizations and technical systems aren’t static. As we encounter new challenges, we have to adapt our approach and our technologies to solve them. Share your first hand experiences of technical and organizational evolutions so that others can follow your path to success (or avoid your mistakes).
Security and Compliance
Applications and infrastructure are growing more complex, and DevOps practices distribute data across services and teams. The desire to scale and speed up doesn't obviate the need to build with security in mind from day one, causing new challenges for security teams as they adjust to this new normal. Compliance and privacy requirements in regulated industries often complicate matters even further. Share how you're building security and compliance into your systems and culture, without compromising velocity.
Dash is focused on the future of technical applications and systems, and the teams that build and support them. The future is unknown, but will certainly bring surprises. If you have a talk that fits Dash’s theme, but may not fit into one of our tracks, we encourage you to submit it!
