Who can submit a talk?

We welcome anyone who wants to share their experience with Svelte to submit a talk to Svelte Summit - Newbies and Experts alike. All we ask is that you respect our Code of Conduct.

Support for new speakers

Want to give a talk, but don't know how? Our team is happy to support you in improving your talk once it's been submitted - we don't bite!

How do we decide which talks are accepted?

The team will be asking the following questions when reviewing submissions:

  • Will the Svelte Community find this topic interesting?
  • Is this topic unique? (across all submissions - we don't want 20 talks on Svelte-Kit...)
  • Is the speaker keen to make the talk the best it can be?
  • All talks are decided on anonymously. Nothing but the talk itself is taken into consideration.
  • The main focus of your talk should be Svelte

Talk formats

We are accepting submissions for two formats:

  • Lightning talk - shorter is better, up to 10 minutes (we recommend 5)
  • Full talk - up to 25 minutes

What should you talk about?
