- In your abstract, be sure to include answers to some basic questions: – Who is the intended audience for your talk? (Be specific; “Web developers” is not a good answer to this question.) – What will attendees get out of your talk? When they leave the room, what will they know that they didn’t know before? – Your outline should be an enumeration of what you intend to say, along with time estimates.
- It is not necessary to have completely written or planned your talk already, but you should have a basic idea of what the over-arching points you intend to make are, and roughly how long you will spend on each one. Ensure that your talk will be relevant to a non-trivial set of people. If your talk is on a particular JS project or piece of software, it should be something that a decent number of people use or want to use. If your talk is about a package that you are writing.
- Include links to source code, articles, blog posts, or other writing that adds context to the presentation.
- If you have given a talk, tutorial, or other presentation before, especially at an earlier dev conference, include that information as well as a link to slides or a video if they’re available.
- Fill out your outline and biography completely, but concisely. The outline and background information often are used to eliminate proposals during the first cut, so incomplete details may be a cause for early rejection of a potentially great talk or tutorial. Don’t let this happen to you!
