Do you have great ideas or unique experiences that you want to share? If you do, then we want to hear from you!

The Kansas City Developer Conference looks to offer sessions covering topics across the entire spectrum of software design, development, and delivery. Whatever your passion, if it relates to technology professionals, then we may have a spot for you at the conference.

Having welcomed over 2100 people to KCDC 2019 last July, and now entering our twelfth year, we are one of the premier community-driven software conferences around.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

We accept submissions for one-hour standard breakout sessions, as well as for 4-hour and 8-hour hands-on workshops.

To maximize the likelihood of your selection to present at KCDC 2020, please keep the following important information in mind:

  • Speakers are often asked to present two talks during the event.

  • We look for speakers with a passion for teaching their areas of expertise. To that end, while not a hard-and-fast rule, we encourage you to be more specialists than generalists in your submissions.

  • For both of these reasons, if you only submit a single abstract to us, your chances of being selected will be greatly reduced.

BENEFITS

Presenters at KCDC 2020 can look forward to the following benefits:

  • Conference Pass: All accepted speakers receive a complimentary three-day pass to KCDC 2020, including access to the June 29 workshop day. The pass is not transferable to any other attendee.

  • Lodging: KCDC will pay for two nights at the Hilton President Kansas City, our official conference hotel, which is nearby the conference venue. Speakers presenting a half-day or full-day workshop will receive coverage for a third night at the hotel.

  • Speaker Dinner: All speakers are invited and encouraged to attend a VIP dinner full of awesome Kansas City BBQ—as well as quality vegetarian options—on the evening of June 29, 2020. This special event offers a great opportunity to network and visit with your peers from around the globe. Don’t miss it!

  • Kids Conference: As an esteemed KCDC speaker, you will be invited to volunteer (optionally) at our Kansas City Kids Conference on June 28. This half-day, totally free event offers families with kids of all ages the chance to come and learn about a variety of topics in STEM from our world-class technology educators and leaders.

  • And More: All of this is in addition to KCDC's overall world-renowned speaker hospitality. We can promise you that for the duration of your stay in Kansas City, day or night, you'll have a great time and will never be bored.

We can't wait to hear from you and see your submissions!
