Congratulations to all of our selected speakers!
For PIPELINE 2017 we had a total of 87 proposals. As happens every year, some talks were considered too tool-centric and others were deemed too general for a Continuous Delivery conference, but the vast majority were relevant and of a high standard. Speaker selection is challenging every year and we’re grateful to all proposers for their hard work.
In terms of gender balance, 8/87 (9%) submissions and 2/12 (16%) of blindly selected proposals were from women. We are always looking to increase the number of submissions from people traditionally under-represented in IT, and we’d welcome any ideas on how to improve.
