I'm Attending!March 27, 2018March 29, 2018DevConf 2018UTC# Introduction
DevConf is a community driven, developer focused, one-day conference hosted annually in Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa. The aim of the conference is to provide software developers a buffet of tools, practices and principles applicable to tackling current and future challenges in the South African software development environment. It's an event where attendees can learn, network and be inspired regardless of their specific technology stack and programming language of choice.
DevConf serves to inspire software developers. A range of topics applicable to software development will be presented. From keeping up to date with the latest technologies and trends to tackling the challenges of working in large enterprise systems – it's a buffet of experiences, ideas and pragmatic advice as well as an opportunity to connect with peers across the industry.
# Types of talks
We have two types of talks and both types are presentation style on stage in front of an audience. These talks are not suited for audience participation.
* Full slot: This is a 45 min slot. Do demos, play audio, do anything! Time is for everything; including Q&A.
* Lightning talk: This is a 15min slot. It is a slide only presentation (slides must be provided a week before the event). These are recommended for first time speakers.
Sales pitches are not welcome.
DevConf 2018 will take place for the third year in Johannesburg on the 27th March 2018 and, for the first time, Cape Town on the 29th March 2018.
Cape Town is a smaller event, and as such not all speakers from the Johannesburg event will be offered a slot in Cape Town.
Lightning talks will be unique per event.
All selected speakers to DevConf include a pass for the event and invite to the speakers only dinner.
Travel and accommodation can also be included full slot presenters. This includes international speakers.
