We're opening a total of 16 speaker slots. Talks are 40 minutes long, including Q&A.
Full Stack Fest will have a single track featuring talks along the following topics:
Devops + infrastructure
Unikernels, containers, service orchestration, monitoring — all about running code in production (as opposed to writing it).
Backend + distributed systems
Distributed systems architecture, fault-tolerance, latest trends in software design, persistence, you name it.
Machine learning + NLP + AI
Data crunching, learning algorithms, natural language interfaces, and more.
UX + browser technology + mobile
Latest trends in UX patterns, clean / performant / testable user interfaces, reactive UIs, progressive enhancement... — anything that you can see, click or tap.
IoT + wearable technology + robotics
Embedded devices, fog computing, the potential of wearable software and how it's helping people and businesses, today and tomorrow.
Our CFP selection process is blind. While voting a proposal, we can only see its title and abstract.
The kind of submissions we are looking for
- Success / failure stories about applying an approach / technology to a business problem, lessons learned
- Innovative ideas / technologies, applicable to current problems
- Inspiring talks that reflect upon shared problems and will leave the audience with renewed motivation, new ideas, etc.
- As a general guideline, our motto is "problems of today, ideas from the future"
The kind of submissions that will get discarded
- Commercial talks about a product
- Recruitment talks to highlight current employer and attract talent
- Talks about a specific library / project explaining how it works / how to use it (lightning talks are probably a better place for these)
- Talks that are not in English
- Talks that don’t comply with our Code Of Conduct
- We value original ideas applicable to real-world problems.
Our audience expects to get inspiration, learn, and apply their learnings to their current problems.
- Make sure that the talk abstract contains as much detail about the presentation as possible.
That includes possible extras and uncommon setups (audio, network, etc).
- Keep the audience in mind
There will be professional developers as well as newcomers.
- If your talk contains live coding, we’d prefer if you pre-recorded it.
If you’d rather do it live, make sure you’ve practiced enough beforehand.
- It’s okay to mention your employer, but if you push it too hard our audience will react against it.
This applies even if your employer is sponsoring Full Stack Fest.
- Make sure your talk is engaging.
If it could be summarized in a blogpost about the topic, it's probably not worthy of a 40 minute talk.
