Devoxx UK Call for Papers, New Speaker Mentoring & Buddies Scheme

Devoxx UK returns to London May 11th & 12th, 2017. We want you, the developer community, to help make it amazing again. The Call for Papers is open and we want to share valuable knowledge and precious experiences, making everyone better informed.

Submit today!

Do you have any insights and ideas for sessions? You can check our youtube channel and see the talks given last year for inspiration.

Talks can be in the form of a Conference Session (a 50-minute in-depth talk), a 2-hour Hands-on Lab, evening BOFs or 15-minute Quickie sessions.If you are new to public speaking and don’t want to dive straight into a main conference talk, lunchtime Quickies are a great option. Alternatively, consider pairing up with a colleague and giving a joint presentation.

But I Haven't Done a Conference Talk Before

If you have a great idea for a conference talk, but haven't given one before, sign up for the New Speaker Mentoring program. We will pair you up with an experienced speaker, who will advise you on your proposal before you submit it. 

If your proposal is accepted, they will dedicate time to you every month, and in the crucial run up to the conference. Their role will be to advise you, give you valuable feedback and hear previews of your talk before you present it. They will also be on hand just before your talk, and during it so you will have a friendly face in the audience.

You can add your name to the New Speaker Mentoring program by registering here.

I’m Ready to Submit Right Now

Buddy up
As well as submitting a proposal for a talk, you can join the Buddies Program. Brain child of Java Champion Linda van der Pal, this aims to pair up new conference attendees with more experienced attendees. Whether you are a Devoxx expert or novice, why not share your time and help to truly enrich the conference experience.
Thanks and we hope to see many of you at the event next year.
