Conferences are a big part of being a developer. Whether you organize them, speak at them, or attend them; they play an important role in the lives of developers. As a conference organizer myself, I know the problems that face organizers and the biggest problem I see is that each year, we get a lot of great talks proposed from the same people. There’s nothing wrong with these speakers, in fact some of them are pretty damn good. It is nice though, to see new faces – and new perspectives – being represented.
The most common reason I hear for not submitting is that developer’s don’t feel that they can speak in public. That or they’ve tried once, didn’t get accepted, so they assumed that no one is interested. I want to help developers, and conference organizers by trying to solve this problem. To that end, I’ve announced Day Camp 4 Developers #5: Public Speaking for Developers.
Check out our lineup for DC4D#5:
- Secrets to Success: How to propose a talk and get it accepted. – Laura Thomson
