We are primarily interested in the following topics, and will have the following tracks:

- Mobile (Android/Flutter)
- Web
- Beyond (Google Cloud Platform, Google Assistant, AI, ML, IoT, "soft" and other skills for developers etc.)

We are interested in experience-based talks. We will not accept proposals that are:

🚫 Just repeating documentation without your experience/lessons learned
🚫 Pitching/selling a company or a product. It's OK to mention your company, but it shouldn't be the main focus
🚫 Recruitment talks to attract talent

For first-time and inexperienced speakers, we have created a "Rising star lightning talk" session type. The format of the talk is 15-20 minutes in length. These speakers will be mentored by experienced speakers to ensure they are successful. 

The format of regular sessions is 40 min in length, talks with two co-speakers are also welcome.

All sessions must be presented in English.
