Thank you for considering Denver Dev Day.

Microsoft is a recurring sponsor for Denver Dev Day and has provided our venue space for nearly 6+ years. We're grateful for their continued sponsorship; find out more about our great venue in the event site details. 

Denver Dev Day welcomes you. As a speaker at Denver Dev Day, you get the opportunity to speak to a thoughtful audience of bright technologists and eager developers from a thriving local community. This is our twelfth Denver Dev Day.  

Please note: Denver Dev Day cannot cover travel expenses.

Who should submit talks? We welcome any and all to speak at our event and actively encourage under-represented groups to submit talks and participate in the event. We are working with a number of groups to promote inclusivity and diversity at our conference.

What level should your talk be? We think you should shoot for level 100 or 200. At most conferences level 100 and 200 sessions are the best for reaching the most developers. The same is true for Denver Dev Day.  

How many talks can I submit? As many as you like. We generally only choose one per speaker. If you are traveling to Denver, be sure to let us know. We'll consider multiple sessions for speakers traveling to Denver Dev Day.

What topic should your talk cover? We have several tracks, including Client, Web, Data & Cloud. If you can't fit your topic in one of those, consider Other. We're open to new ideas but remember the dev in Denver Dev Day is for Developer.

Tip: we love talks on design patterns and development techniques.

How long should your talk be? We have two session lengths: regular and lightning. Regular sessions are just under an hour depending how many sessions are accepted; lightning talks are 10 to 15 minutes depending on how many talks are accepted. 

Tell us: anything special with your talk? (Time of day you are available, unique facility set-up, etc.)

Do speakers get paid? At Denver Dev Day, every speaker gets paid in handshakes & smiles. Let's be honest: we don't have any money. We are all volunteer based. We care about people, technology, and the community. But we don't have a budget to pay anyone. 

Does Denver Dev Day pay for travel? See above. We wish we could.

Is there a hotel nearby? Yes: 

Is there a pre-event party? Not yet. We'll see if we find a sponsor.

Is there breakfast? Yes.

Is there lunch? Yes.

Is there a post-event dinner? Yes. And all our speakers and volunteers are invited.

When will I know if I am accepted? Good question. The call for speakers ends September 1 and we should have the list of who is accepted done about 2 weeks after that. This should give you 6 weeks to plan your travel if you are traveling. 

We look forward to seeing your submission!
