Byteconf Flutter is a 100% free single day conference with the best Flutter speakers and teachers in the world. Conferences are great, but flights, hotels, and tickets are expensive, so not everyone can go. Byteconf is streamed on YouTube, for free, so anyone and everyone can attend. We’re building a community of developers around the world - see you there?

In 2018, we ran three conferences: Byteconf React, Byteconf ReasonML, and Byteconf React Native. We had a lot of fun growing our audience - a smart, engaged group of people learning to code (especially web developers) around the world. In 2019, we ran a single conference, Byteconf JavaScript, which was our first two-day event. Now, at the beginning of 2020, we’re kicking Byteconf into high gear and running events across the spectrum of the software world. Byteconf React was our first 2020 conference, and it was a huge success – we’re excited to bring together the Flutter world and (speaking as an organizer), I’m excited to learn more about Flutter myself!

CFP Description

We’re looking for great speakers of all experience levels to speak at Byteconf Flutter. What’s unique about Byteconf is the location: it’s completely streamed online. This means that you don’t need to travel, be able to afford flights, or a hotel to speak at the conference – we want to reach people where they are, regardless of socioeconomic situation.

So, about you as a speaker. Our audience is incredibly enthusiastic, and we want to work with speakers who are really excited to teach people. You don’t need to have experience as a speaker, and if you don’t have the right gear to record a talk, we’ll send them to you! We want to support great speakers, but we also want to help people grow into great speakers. If you have a topic that you think is interesting, or if you want to teach people about the way that you look at code, consider submitting a talk idea (or multiple)!

Byteconf talks are 20 minutes. We ask that speakers prerecord their talks, and deliver both the talk and an introductory video (so we can put a face to the voice/code) and have them delivered to us about one or two weeks before the conference.

If enough are submitted, we’ll also be doing a lightning talks segment of the conference. This is a great opportunity to show off your Flutter projects, teach a simple Flutter concept, or whatever else you think would be interesting, in just five minutes. We’re super excited about this aspect of the conference, and we encourage you to submit a talk if you want to get a chance to share what you know about Flutter!

In addition, we’re also seeking out longer workshop-style content (over 60 minutes in length)! If you’re interested in teaching Flutter concepts to our audience, we’ll be putting together a collection of workshops for August 13th, preferably around beginner/intermediate Flutter concepts. This is a first for us, so if you have experience running Flutter workshops, we’d really love to hear from you!

Our speaker alumni have one thing they always mention as a particularly cool part about Byteconf: the live chat. We encourage our speakers to hop into the YouTube chat and hang out with our audience as their talk airs. This is a great chance to answer questions, build connections, and grow your audience. It’s a unique dynamic that we haven’t seen at any other conference!

Questions before you submit? Shoot me an email: Thanks, and hope to see your submission soon!
