Code BEAM Lite Stockholm takes place on May 12th 2023. It is a one-track in-person conference. Speaking slots are 25 minutes, which includes a minimum of 20-min presentation and 5-min Q&A. 

We welcome proposals about Erlang, Elixir, BEAM and other technologies and we are happy to support candidates from under-represented groups in the software development community.

The programme committee is also happy to support and coach speakers with their presentations and talk delivery. 


RECOMMEND US OR RECOMMEND A SPEAKER

We want to make sure our conference is as diverse as the community we represent. Do you know any researchers, programmers or experts who are a part of groups traditionally under-represented in IT and whose work you can recommend to our committee? Please, let them know, that our Call For Talks is open and that we’d love to see their work! Also, you can nominate them using the form, if you want us to check them out and possibly invite them.


IMPORTANT DATES

  • Your talk should be submitted by 23:59 PT on 5 February 2023.
  • You will be informed about the status of your submission by 20 February 2023.


THEMES & TOPICS

We are looking for great talk ideas around the following 6 themes:

  • Growth - overcoming challenges, such as how to onboard new members to your team, adopt new technologies or take your new products to the next level
  • DevOps - how software is behaving in the actual production environment, overcoming usual and unusual challenges in your production environment.
  • Web/Cloud - latest paradigms and frameworks for web and cloud development.
  • Fighting technical debt - improving your legacy systems, and new developments in the tools that helped to do so.
  • Innovation - the latest cool projects in the ecosystem.
  • History & Philosophy of the Ecosystem - first-person accounts, holistic overviews or specific case reviews of rich heritage, and how they are helping shape the future.

Visit the conference website for details on the themes!

Is your presentation slightly outside that scope? Amaze and inspire us with your submission.


TIPS FOR SUBMITTING

Never spoken at conferences before and are unsure if you should, and what should you talk about? Noel Rappin has a good article on this here

"1. A conference that was limited to only people that really thought they were the most qualified person to talk would be depressing, if not completely horrific.

2. You are absolutely the most qualified person to tell me what you think on a particular topic.

3. This is how you become qualified. You study something, you teach it to other people."

What mistakes to avoid when submitting a talk? Noel Rappin also has an answer in this article.

In short: clearly identify your topic, be respectful of everyone, be interesting, but also self-aware, don't pitch your company, and submit early and often. We could also add to that - think if this conference audience is the right one for your talk (and why?).

Need more tips? We recommend Sarah Mei's article "What Your Conference Proposal is Missing".
