We’re gearing up for AngularConnect 2018 and we need you to make it a success. AngularConnect is all about the community, and we’re looking for a speaker line-up that reflects the community in all its glorious diversity.
We’re expecting over 1000 developers to join us in London this year, who will be hungry for insightful, practical talks, each lasting around 30 minutes. If you’re passionate about Angular (or other related subjects) and want to share your expertise with the community then we would love to hear from you. The deadline for applications is 11 June 2018 at 17:00 GMT.
As well as Google’s Head of DevRel, Cloud Startups & G Suite Developer Platforms, Jules Kremer, you could be on the same stage as Googlers Igor Minar, Rob Wormald and Stephen Fluin, founder of ngGirls Shmuela Jacobs, senior Narwhal engineer Aysegul Yonet and Microsoft Cloud Developer Advocate Asim Hussain.
As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we particularly want to hear from people who might usually be underrepresented at tech conferences. We are here to offer support at all stages of the submission process - whether you need help with logistics, accessibility or public speaking.
This year we want to try something new, inspired by Maaret Pyhäjärvi’s approach with the European Testing Conference. Sometimes, abstracts - even when well written - may not always convey the message you hope to send. We’d like to give you chance to pitch your idea directly to 1-2 members of the programming committee on a 15-minute call, which you can book via Calendly:
This will give you the opportunity to talk through your ideas and tell us why you find it exciting. You can ask questions and get feedback directly from the programming committee about how to tailor your proposal best for our audience. NOTE: No decisions will be made on the call.
Spaces are limited so if you are a more experienced speaker, please consider whether you really need the slot or whether a newer speaker or member of an underrepresented group would benefit more.
We know that the whole CFP process can seem a bit like a dark art, so we’ve written a separate blog post dedicated to how to nail your submission.
All confirmed speakers receive:
We’re really open to anything that would be of interest to the Angular community, but if you’re looking for inspiration these suggestions from our programming committee, might help:
And finally, we’re specifically looking for talks on the following subjects:
And remember, if you think it’s interesting, we probably will too!
