Convince Your Boss 说服您的老板

Want to attend LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China 2018, but not sure how to bring it up with your boss? We’ve published a sample letter below to help make the process easier. See you in Beijing!

“Convince Your Boss” Letter

Dear {Name},

I’d like to attend the upcoming LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China Conference taking place June 25 – 27 in Beijing. I’ve researched many conferences – and this is THE conference to attend for developers, operations experts (architects, sys admins, devops), business, compliance and legal leadership professionals that want to expand their skills, solve technical issues with the best and brightest in the community and learn/collaborate within the Linux, container, cloud computing and open source ecosystems.

Over 2,500 of the most talented individuals in the industry gather together for this event – it’s like a pop-up think tank!

Here’s how I envision my attendance at LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China 2018 strengthening our company:

LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China offers 200+ sessions divided into three main content areas: Linux, Cloud, and Containers; 12 tracks across three days, plus mini-summits and tutorials that cover a wide range of technologies, use cases and implementations. These sessions include presentations, hands-on tutorials, deep-dive technical lectures, and visionary keynotes from industry leaders (including simultaneous translation). Attending these sessions will allow me to build my knowledge and learn from other community members on best practices.
The infamous “hallway track” at LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen China will allow me to meet the top technical minds in the ecosystem. I hope to meet others that might face the same challenges and problems I do so that we can work together to solve technical issues now and in the future. Creating strategic partnerships at the event could be very useful in the future when we encounter new challenges.

You can learn more about the conference here and view last year’s keynotes and other videos here.

If I register before June 18, the fee is only USD$150. Included in the registration fee is access to all keynotes and sessions, some co-located events, access to the sponsor technology showcase, hallway tracks and lounges, continental breakfast, morning and afternoon breaks, lunch and the Onsite Attendee Reception and Sponsor Showcase.

I would be happy to write a post-conference report detailing what I’ve learned, and recommend any changes we can implement to improve our practices.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I hope we can make this opportunity work.

想参加 LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen 中国 2018 论坛,但不知道如何说服您的老板?我们发布了一封样本信(详见下),能帮助您更顺利地征得老板的同意。北京见!


尊敬的 {Name}:

我希望参加将于 6 月 25 日至 27 日在北京召开的 LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen 中国大会。我在对许多会议和论坛进行研究后发现,这个论坛是最适合开发人员、营运专家(架构师、系统管理员、运维人员)、业务、合规性和法律领导等方面的专业人员参与的论坛。与会者可以在此论坛中强化专业技能,与领域内最好、最聪明的专业人士一起解决技术问题,并在此Linux、容器、云计算和开源的生态系统里相互学习和协作。

业内 2500 多位最有才华的人士将因此次论坛齐聚一堂,它就像一个 pop-up think tank(弹出式智囊团)!

我认为,参加 LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen 中国 2018 论坛将通过以下方面促进我们公司的发展:

  • LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen 中国将会提供 200 多个会议,有三个主要内容:Linux,云和容器;三天内共设 12 个主题,还有涉及各种技术、用例和实作的迷你高级峰会和专题报告。会议形式包含演讲、实践性专题报告、深挖性技术讲座,以及行业领导者有远见的主题演讲(含同声翻译)。参加这些会议将帮助我建立自己的知识库,并向其他社区成员学习最佳实践方法。
  • 在 LinuxCon + ContainerCon + CloudOpen 中国上最著名的“走廊交流会”中,我将有机会与生态系统的顶尖技术人员面谈。我希望遇到可能面临同样挑战和问题的其他人,这样我们就可以共同解决现在和未来的技术问题。在未来遇到新的挑战时,在此次会议中建立的战略伙伴关系可能会变得非常有用。


如果我在 6 月 18 日之前注册,费用仅需 150 美元。注册费用涵盖所有主题演讲和会议,部分同地协作活动,赞助商技术展示会,走廊交流会和休息室,欧式早餐,上午和下午休息时间,午餐,现场与会者接待和赞助商展示会。
