Call for Speakers: Build Meetup New York April 2020

Hi everybody,

On April 7th and 8th, Jane Street, Bloomberg and Google will be hosting a Build Meetup at the Jane Street offices in New York City.

As we begin shaping our schedule, we are reaching out to a number of communities to find people who would like to participate in the event. Speaker sign-ups are now live here.

We are excited to announce that the keynote will be presented by the authors of the research paper “From Laptop to Lambda: Outsourcing Everyday Jobs to Thousands of Transient Functional Containers” which examines the exciting possibilities for build through the use of cloud functions.

The entire event will be themed around all things build and test: Bazel, Buck, BuildStream, CMake, Dune, Goma, Pants, Recc and Remote Execution. In addition to this, we are interested in the growing surrounding ecosystems, such as editor integration and developer build experience as a whole.

The meetup will run as follows: on day one, a series of talks will be presented along with breakfast, lunch and refreshments. This will be followed by an evening social at a nearby venue to continue the discussions from throughout the day.

On the second day there will be an opportunity for broader community collaboration and discussion during our all day code sprint.

We are looking for insightful and engaging talks and presentations on topics focused around build systems. Have you worked tirelessly for the past 6 months on a new feature for project foo you would like to showcase? Have you and your team spent the last year integrating the tool bar at your workplace? Do you have some comparisons to make between qux and quux that the community could benefit from?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

We welcome proposals for talks across the entire ecosystem. Each talk should ideally last 30 minutes, followed by time for questions.

Keep your eyes out for meetup registration information, which will be sent separately over the next few weeks!

All the best,

Ed, Jeremie, Jakob and Sander
