This year the Festival will focus on two tracks:
Geared towards front-end and/or back-end developers, these sessions assume a certain level of basic technical proficiency and might go in-depth with code samples, etc.
These sessions will cover less technical topics - such as case studies, project management processes, selling Umbraco, improving agency marketing and business practices, etc.
What We're Looking For
We are looking for a variety of interesting topics to be covered during the course of the Festival, so if you have an idea, please submit it! Also, feel free to submit multiple talk proposals, if you have different topics your are prepared to present on.
Sessions will be 1 hour long, though leaving a bit of time for Q&A at the end of your presentation is ideal.
For "Technical/Development" talks, anything related to Website or Web App Development in general, or Umbraco Development specifically is welcome. Other possible topics include: Cloud, APIs, Development Processes, Source Control/Continuous Integration, Debugging/Error Handling, etc.
For "Business/Marketing" talks, use-cases/case studies are interesting, and talks about how Umbraco stacks up to other CMSs or how Umbraco was sold to a client are always well-received. We are also very interested in talks focused on the business of being an advertising/development agency, including sales/marketing tips and project management processes.
What You Get
All confirmed speakers will receive a complementary ticket to the two-day event. Unfortunately, we are unable to reimburse travel expenses for speakers.
Speaker's bios will be included on the website, along with links to a website as well as a twitter profile, if provided.
Deadline for Submissions
Please submit your proposals by Sunday, July 15, 2018 for consideration.
