Would you like to speak at droidcon London? We want to hear your talk proposals!
Talks will be selected by Skills Matter and the Programme Committee on the basis of making the conference a varied, diverse and valuable event. Submission is open to anyone, and we encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal. Members of the Programme Committee are happy to offer coaching and assistance on talk proposals.
The programme committee is composed by members of engineering teams from a variety of fields and backgrounds (50-50 male-female ratio from consultancy, retail, tech companies, start-ups, and multinational companies), and it is a reflection of the conference we aim to create: great, engaging and interesting talks from a diverse and varied set of speakers and experts.
We strongly encourage first-time speakers to be part of our programmes, and it is our target to feature as many first-time speakers as we can at this year's droidcon London. If your talk will be selected, you will have the opportunity to attend Jenny Martin's course "Giving Engaging Technical Talks at Conferences and Meetups".
