A Human-Centered Software Developers’ Conference
OH!2023 is a single track conference for people who are interested in helping humanity thrive by supporting the well-being, information sharing and democracy in software development and beyond.
The conference will be held in the heart of Helsinki at the Bio Rex cinema, only 200 meters from the city’s Central Railway Station. Completed in 1936, Bio Rex is one of the cultural landmarks of Helsinki.
The CFP has now closed and tickets are available for purchase.
We’re looking for a wide range of topics related to human-centered software development. We’re aiming to have a balance of talks aimed at diverse levels of expertise.
All talks and speakers must adhere to the conference code of conduct. Submissions are evaluated anonymously in the first phase (in other words we don’t don’t see the speaker details) by a small team of volunteers. Talks with the highest ratings move onto a second round of evaluation where the programme committee evaluates them for programme fit, content, relevant experience, etc. We aim to have a well balanced and diverse talk line-up.
Talks are expected to be 30 minutes long, not including a short Q&A section after the talk. The questions in the Q&A section are screened and moderated.
Note: If your talk is selected, you should be prepared to travel to Helsinki in October to give the talk in-person.
All talks will be recorded and published.
Talks we’d like to see
- How to recognise the harms of the software we’re developing?
- The impact of cross-team collaboration to better tools and processes
- Inequality of treating users as edge cases
- Prioritising development with values over metrics
- How to develop sustainable web services?
- How to enable development team’s creativity to thrive?
