The calls for proposals for both DevConf.CZ (24–26 January in Brno, CZ) and Open TestCon (30–31 March in Beijing, CN) are open through the end of the month. These Red Hat-sponsored conferences are a great opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with the community.


DevConf.CZ is looking for workshops, discussion sessions, and presentations, with a variety of length options available. This large community conference has tracks for a variety of topics including community, IoT, cloud/containers, microservices, networking, desktop, and documentation. And like in years past, there is a dedicated Fedora track. If you weren’t ready to give a presentation at Flock — or if you want to give it to a broader audience — this is your chance. You can submit proposals through the CfP portal through 1 November.

Open TestCon

Open TestCon is looking for workshops, and short (30-minute) & long (60-minute) talks. The focus is on testing in quality in open source projects. This includes the technology of testing, security, data privacy, FOSS community & standards, and more. It’s open to everyone, not just testers. After all, quality is everyone’s responsibility. You can submit up to two proposals through the Open TestCon CfP portal through 31 October.
