OpenZFS Dev Summit 2018

Our sixth annual OpenZFS Developer Summit will be held September 10-11 in San Francisco. As with previous years: The goal of the event is to foster cross-community discussions of OpenZFS work and to make progress on some of the projects we have proposed. This 2-day event consists of a day of presentation and a 1-day hackathon.

We welcome proposals for any kinds of talks related to ZFS, and we are particularly interested in fostering a diverse group of speakers. In the past, the most popular talks have featured internal details of new or upcoming features in OpenZFS. If you're new to the OpenZFS community or just new to giving talks at conferences, mentorship is available to help make your presentation the best it can be.

Matt Ahrens will review all of the submissions and select talks that will be most interesting for the audience. The registration fee will be waived for speakers.
