UPDATED: Apply to Speak at Syntax Code & Craft Convention 2016

It’s That Time!

The 1st SyntaxCon will be held in Charleston, South Carolina on May 6 & 7, bringing together hundreds of passionate developers across various languages, frameworks and platforms.

Whether you’re a conference veteran, a regular speaker or even if you have never given a public talk before, we’re interested in hearing from you if you’re passionate about development. We want you to add something to the conversation that will be happening at SyntaxCon 2016.

Deadline for topic/speaker proposals is January 30, 2016 at midnight [EST] February 12 at midnight [EST].

Who Should Propose a Talk?

Hint: It’s You!

What tools and topics are we looking for?

Syntax is a code and craft convention; talks will be focused on providing ongoing education among the developer community and an insight into what’s next. Topics will cover 4 main tracks:

  • Mobile,
  • Front-End,
  • Back-End, and
  • Platforms (content management systems, cloud-hosted services and infrastructure).

Of course, we’re always open to other suggestions. Keep in mind, we’re looking for both one-hour talks and longer workshops that go into more depth.

Deadline for Submissions

Proposals are due at midnight [EST] on February 12, 2016. We’ll make our selections and announce the preliminary speakers, sessions and schedule in February.

Encourage others to Submit

Do you know of someone who belongs at SyntaxCon? Give them a nudge! It’s a win-win, really. They’ll be excited to present, and you’ll be a hero.

One thing to know: Diversity is a core value at SyntaxCon. We keep this mix in mind as we put together each lineup:

  • Professional history, skills, opinions, and experiences
  • Sexual orientation, age, gender, race, and ethnicity
  • Geography, language, and communication styles

In that spirit, please help us spread the word as far and wide as possible.
