You’ve marked your calendar to alert you weeks in advance of the CFP deadline. You’ve spent your nights and weekends to skillfully craft your abstract and you are convinced this is THE one. You confidently clicked the 'submit' button only to find out weeks later you’ve received an automated declined email. On top of feeling disappointed, you probably wondered why your proposal was turned down.
As Jenkins World CFP is still open, we hope to demystify the selection process by offering a few tips to help increase the chance of your proposal getting accepted.
There’s only a few seconds to make an impression with your proposal. Your title and abstract should be succinct and attention grabbing. Think about what makes your Jenkins proposal exceptional over others. What value will it bring to attendees?
Jenkins World audiences want to learn and adopt the newest development practices, process, languages and frameworks. They are highly technical and are interested in deep technical talks that are original and offers valuable information.
Share your unique Jenkins project experiences, challenges, strategies, lessons learned, and outcome. What can you share with your audience that will facilitate knowledge transfer and development of new and innovative techniques?
Consider how to make the topic more broadly applicable to the attendees, such as with a hands-on demo explaining the concept. By showcasing innovative methods that draw out relevant and compelling knowledge to the audience, everybody is likely to more thoroughly absord the content of the talk. Also, who doesn’t love a cool demo?
Jenkins is used tons of different ways. Sharing novel approaches, tips, or tricks for increased efficiency and proficiency with Jenkins is almost always well received!
