We invite you to propose a session for this leading software development conference.
We have a long tradition of high quality sessions covering many aspects of software development, from programming languages (e.g., Java, C#, Python, Erlang, Haskell, Ruby, Groovy, C, C++, etc.), and technologies (libraries, frameworks, databases, etc.) to subjects about the wider development environment such as testing, architecture and design, development process, analysis, patterns, project management, and softer aspects such as team building, communication and leadership.
Sessions may be either tutorial-based, presentations of case studies, or take the form of interactive workshops. We are always open to novel formats, so please contact us with your idea. The standard length of a session is 90 minutes, with some exceptions. In order to allow less experienced speakers to speak at the conference without the pressure of filling a full 90 minutes, we reserve a number of shorter 45 minute sessions.
If you would like to run a session please let us know by emailing your proposals to email@example.com by the 26th of September 2010 at the latest.
Assuming your some kind of programmer and even slightly interested in being batter at your practice, you should think pretty hard about going. Really quite hard. Even better, you should think about presenting. You do have something to say, even if you don't yet realise it. That stuff that seems commonplace to you actually isn't. There are people who will benefit from hearing about it, and you'll benefit from talking about.
Have a shuffle through the conference website to see what's in play (just about anything) and make a pitch. If you can come up with a title, the rest will write itself. Don't fret about filling time - you will. You'll probably have to cut down so you don't over run, but don't worry about that either. Find that title, and make your pitch.
