We're inviting the Tech Community to submit talks for our upcoming event on the 14th of August 2020.

If you think you have something great to talk about, tell us all about it and we consider your entry. If you know someone who has something great to talk about, nominate them. And if you are interested in hearing about a particular topic, nominate the topic, and we can try and find a match.

Theme:

"2020 has brought in a lot of surprises and one of the biggest ones is the new way of life due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We are now living under constant lockdowns, quarantines and most teams & organisations have resorted to remote working. The tech industry got affected too, people lost jobs and some got new ones. Ideas died down and some began to make sense. We are but left with nothing but to adapt"

We'd love to see anything that fits into our event theme:

Adapting to the new normal


Guidelines:

Submit your proposal by 11 August 2020. No Excuses

  • All talks are in English.
  • Talks are usually 15 minutes long (for longer talks we’d get in touch with you directly). There is no Q&A. We will be on a tight schedule and enforce the end of a talk rigorously. We strongly encourage timing your presentation in advance.
  • Make sure you care, and make sure we see you care. Typos, sloppy formatting and all-lowercase submissions make our reading of your proposal tedious. These things will definitely count against your proposal.
  • Prerecordings are our thing. We will be so excited if you prerecord your presentation. We might even award you a Q&A session. 

Please note:

All talks will be recorded and published on the internet for free, along with a recording of the slide deck, live-demo or other on-presenter-screen activity as well as a transcript and subtitles.


Finally, since you retain full ownership of your slides and recording, we’d like to ask you to make your materials and recording available under a creative commons (we default to no commercial reuse) or other open source license.


We can't wait to see your submission
