The sixth annual OpenZFS Developer Summit will be held in San
Francisco, *November
4-5, 2019*.  All OpenZFS developers are invited to participate, and
registration is now open.

See for all of the
details, including slides and videos from previous years' conferences.

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.

The first day of the conference will be set aside for presentations. *If
you would like to give a talk, submit a proposal via email
to matt at <matt at>, including a 1-2 paragraph abstract.* 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, and explanations of how existing subsystems
work. If you're new to the OpenZFS community or new to giving talks at
conferences, mentorship is available to help make your presentation the
best it can be. The registration fee will be waived for speakers.

The deadlines are as follows:

*August 19, 2019 All abstracts/proposals submitted* to matt at
September 6, 2019 Proposal submitters notified
November 4-5, 2019 OpenZFS Developer Summit

The second day of the event will be a hackathon, where you will have the
opportunity to work with OpenZFS developers that you might not normally sit
next to, with the goal of having something, no matter how insignificant, to
demo at the end of the day.

This event is only possible because of the efforts and contributions of the
community of developers and companies that sponsor the event.  Special
thanks to our early Diamond sponsors:  Delphix <>, Datto
<>, and Intel <>.

Additional sponsorship opportunities are available. Please see the website
for details and send email to Karyn.Ritter at if you have any
