Orchestructure is meant to be a place where people in (or adjacent to) computer infrastructure fields can assemble to teach, learn, and inspire others. We don't subscribe to any particular way of achieving a goal nor do we tout a singular technology as being the end-all solution.
With this in mind, we're exceptionally open to hearing about any and all methods or technology used by individuals and companies alike. Additionally, we subscribe to an interactive and thought provoking format where everyone can spawn discussion with everyone else.
Finally, presenters should not be afraid to delve into dense functional details and comprehensive descriptions of the topic. Attendees generally enjoy intricately discussed technologies and the varied strategies around solving problems.
A few guidelines all presentations should follow:
A few examples of great topic ideas!

Of course more bare-bones items like networking, storage, load balancing, etc. are more than welcome!
A few ideas to help mold your talk:
Lightning talks are short (<5min) talks or exercises where anyone can come forward about an exciting thing they've done, are working on, or found. This can be in any form: demo, slides, merely spawning discussion, etc..
Up to two lightning talks can be given after the main presentation finishes. Interested!? File an issue!
We try to broadcast and publish every presentation through YouTube live through Google Hangouts. They're available on our channel here.
If you would rather your presentation not be recorded, please let us know. Additionally, it is encouraged to not include sensitive information on your presentation materials. Orchestructure can't be held responsible for misuse stemming from your talk, materials, etc..
If you live elsewhere or simply can't make it to a future Orchestructure meetup, let us know. We allow a few remote presentations every year and will work with you to get everything setup!
We're always on the lookout for exciting organizations to help keep Orchestructure as strong as possible. Consider donating or becoming a sponsor to help perpetuate your brand and get more in touch with our community!
