What makes a good talk? Let us know how you solved your real life relevance and matching problems. For us it's not enough to see theoretical improvements, but how they can be realized in large-scale systems. We want practical stories of what you've learned on real projects, and how you've found and pushed the needle.
Vendors, we value your talks, but please no 'vendor pitches': A good test: can the audience implement the ideas you present without buying your solution? If not, then it may be a vendor pitch. But if we can learn from what you learned while building your product, then bring it on!
