We all want to be more productive as developers but there's more to it than longer hours and bigger coffees. The r/webdev + r/web_design folks want members of the community (including our Discord server) to share their advice and experience in the form of a talk!

The event is focused on overcoming common struggles by working smarter - not harder. We're looking for tips and tricks to hack productivity. Can you tell people how to make web development faster, easier, or more sustainable?

The Call for Speakers opens October 18, 2021, selected speakers will be paid.

Target Audience

Our community is comprised of nearly 2 million subscribers with over 4.8 million page views per month of 1m unique visitors. The audience trends towards entry-level developers and designers attempting to get their foot in the door and differentiate themselves from the competition. However, like most communities, it's a heterogeneous mix that includes industry experts that provide great advice and content day in and day out. We would encourage you to target 1-3 year professionals, but throw in some nuggets of knowledge that experienced professionals could take away.


Anyone from the community can submit a talk as we want to provide a platform for you as well as witness some of the skills and experience we know the community possesses. We’d love to hear from you if your topic is worth educating or entertaining others about, whether you’re a seasoned speaker or first-timer. If you’re new to giving talks, we’ll provide assistance so you can feel comfortable speaking for the first time.


In your proposal, please provide the following information.

  • 15-minute Lightning Live Streamed Talk (Payment: $225 USD)
  • 40-minute Full-length Live Streamed Talk (Payment: $750 USD)
