We’re excited to announce that the Write/Speak/Code Call for Proposals is now open through April 9th 2016! This year our CFP is for keynote speakers who will be opening and closing each day of the conference. All speakers will receive a ticket to the conference and a $500 honorarium. Travel assistance is available by request.
As a conference for women software engineers our attendees are looking for stories that can help them find their voices and expertise as thought leaders. Our conference gives attendees hands-on experience to workshop their ideas into tangible talks, blog pieces, and open source code contributions. Your talk should reflect how you came to find your own expertise, be it in writing, speaking, or open source, and what your journey has been. We are passionate about stories that speak to the diversity of women in tech! After all, our community includes women coders from multiple programming languages, ages, geographic origins, and more.
In order to help you get started we’ve compiled a list of a few resources to help you get started:
- Review the Write/Speak/Code CFP
- Watch the Write/Speak/Code Q&A with 2016 conference chair Rachel and I
- Try reading a few O’Reilly proposals!
- Get help from veteran speakers!
Still stuck or want more assistance? Do not hesitate to reach out to the Speaker Outreach team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you think you would like to participate but perhaps not as a keynote speaker we have other opportunities including being a panelist or a speaking mentor.
