We want to hear your experiences with Clojure/ClojureScript in whatever form, as well as any other related topics. Have you created some neat technology or discovered a useful practice? Are you working on challenges or innovative projects? Every developer's journey with Clojure and functional programming is different, so you will have learnt something that others haven't and so we encourage you to share.
Talks will be selected by Skills Matter and the Programme Committee on the basis of making the conference a varied and highly valuable event. Submission is open to anyone, and we encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal. Skills Matter offer a free public speaking course for first-time speakers. We also encourage co-presenting talks.
Members of the Programme Committee are happy to offer coaching and assistance on talk proposals, here is a video tutorial if you need help on shaping your thoughts into a submission or on how to get started: https://skillsmatter.com/skillscasts/7853-workshop-giving-your-first-meetup
Every speaker accepted will receive a free ticket to the conference and we do offer assistance with T&L.
