Advice about speaker proposals:

1- DevNetwork conferences aim for a balanced representation of backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, ages, and roles for its speakers. Towards that goal, we ask that companies submitting speaker proposals make sure to submit executives from their companies representing a balanced diversity.

2- Please review our conference tracks for WorldFestival.

We are especially looking for talks on these topics. Proposals submitted on these topics have a higher chance of being accepted.
