Let’s speak at GopherCon Vietnam 2019, the largest Go conference in Vietnam!

GopherCon is an annual conference which began in last year - 2018 and is dedicated to the Go programming language. It is organized by Golang Vietnam, a community-driven group of developers who wish to promote the use of Go, the formation of an inclusive and supportive Go community, and the education of Go developers.

Learn a lot from the first event, GopherCon 2019 will be more organized and well planned. It is 2 days long, 1 day for Workshop and 1 day for Conference which take place November 1st-2nd, 2019, Ho Chi Minh City.

We encourage speakers who have not presented at a last conference. That means when choosing the final speakers list, we bit more prioritize those who have not spoken at GophercCon 2018.

Our CFP lasts for 2 month, from 10th June to 21st August. Details about Conference will come later.

Advice for authors

Proposals will be reviewed based on the selection criteria below. Please demonstrate as best as you can that your proposal meets them, so our reviewers feel confident about recommending it. One paragraph is not sufficient. Several paragraphs are barely sufficient. Please keep in mind that there has never been a GopherCon proposal that hit all the criteria yet was rejected because it was too long.

The selection criteria:

  • Relevance. The talk is relevant to the Go community. GopherCon is not a general software conference, our audience wants to hear about topics that relate to the Go programming language. Devops - Go talks might be acceptable due to their close relationship.
  • Clarity. You’ve clearly explained what you are going to talk about.
  • Correctness. You’ve demonstrated knowledge of your topic. You don’t have to be an expert, but you are expected to be speaking from experience.
  • Achievability. You’ve thought about how to present your material in the time available.
  • Impact. The goal of the talk. What new idea, technique, tool, or information will the audience leave your presentation with?

All accepted speakers will get a free ticket each.
