RWDevCon 2017: Call for Inspiration Speakers

We’re looking for a few speakers to give 18-minute non-technical talks at RWDevCon 2017 – find out how to apply!

At RWDevCon, most of the time is spent on hands-on tutorials, where you code along with the instructor. This is because we believe the best way to learn a subject is through hands-on experience.

But we’ve found that after a long day’s work on tutorials, attendees are ready for a break!

That’s why in the afternoon, we switch gears to inspiration talks. These are 18-minute non-technical talks, designed to fill you with new ideas and energy.

We are looking for a few select people from the community to join us in this track and share some of their incredible experience and stories.

If you are a great speaker with a powerful message to share, please contact us with the following info:

  • Please send us 1-2 ideas you have for inspiration talks. Remember – these are short 18-minute non-technical talks with the goal of giving your new idea, some battle-won advice, and leaving you excited and energized. You can watch examples here (search inspiration).
  • Can you arrive on Wed March 29, 2017, and depart Sun April 2, 2017?
  • Please send us links to any videos you have of you giving a talk.
  • Please send us a brief history of your background and major accomplishments.

Inspiration speakers get a free ticket, 4-nights at the conference hotel, and reimbursement for their flight.

Please send your application by next Friday, Dec 16. Please understand that although we wish we could invite everyone kind enough to volunteer for this, slots are limited.

We can’t wait to hear from you! :]
