DEVit 2017 - Call for Papers
Oh, hey there! Thank you for your interest in being a speaker in DEVit 2017 ( ), the leading web developer conference in South East Europe.

Proposals should include as much detail as possible about the topic and format for the presentation. Vague and overly broad proposals don’t showcase your skills and knowledge, and our volunteer reviewers aren’t mind readers. The more you can tell us, the more likely the proposal will be selected.

We invite you to submit a proposal to lead conference sessions DEVit 2017 .

Topics we’re on the lookout for DEVit 2017
• DevOps
• AWS, GCP, API Design, Microservices, Containers, CI/CD, Infra as Code

• Backend
ASP.NET, PHP7, RoR, Java, Redis, Scala, Elixir, NoSQL databases

• Mobile
• Firebase, Cross Platform Mobile Development, React Native, Ionic

• Frontend
• React, Vue, Web performance, Chrome Platform APIs, Webpack, SPA, Templating, MVC

Tips for writing a good proposal for a good talk
This is a developer conference, tell us why your presentation is a good fit for DEVit. Because DEVit is for and by developers, product and vendor pitches are not appropriate.

• Talk about real world scenarios and emphasize knowledge transfer from your experiences
• Let people know what your talk is about through a simple and topical title.
• Provide as much detail as possible
• Keep people in mind, let them know what they will take away from it
• Limit the scope of your talk to what you can cover in 30 minutes
• Diversity is important, does your presentation include a person of color, a woman, or an underrepresented group at tech • conferences?
• Present something relevant. One of your challenges as a proposer is to demonstrate that you understand that attendees might need an extra reason to pay attention to something that they might otherwise think of as "settled"

Proposal don’ts
These items are surefire ways of not getting past the initial review.

• Sales pitches
No, just don’t. It’s acceptable to mention your company’s product during a presentation but it should never be the focus of your talk

• Bulk submissions
If your proposal reads as generic talk that has been submitted to a number of conferences, it will not pass the initial review. Granted that a talk can be a polished version of earlier talk, but the proposal should be tailored for DEVit.
