Little Rock Tech Fest 2020 will be Oct. 7th & 8th & 9th at the State House Convention Center in Downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. The three-day event is focused on bringing professional software developer topics that expand their skill set and expose them to relevant changes in the software development.
We have two different formats that we will be filling with the CFP:
Hourly Sessions - These are 40 min sessions with 10 minutes reserved for Q&A
Workshop Sessions -These sessions are 1.5hr workshops (or if longer..let's talk) for more in-depth coverage of a topic.
First round of speaker notifications will be made on August 1st and later entries will be made by Sept. 7th.
