Coaching is available for new speakers!
Travel support is very limited, we recommend you live within a moderate drive of Columbus, Ohio.
The Ohio DevFest is a one-day gathering of students, software professionals, and hobbyists interested in all kinds of software development. We’re looking for speakers on all sorts of topics.
DevFests are all about what the community wants to learn, regardless of who makes the tech. To that end, we’re looking for speakers on all kinds of development, including Web, Cloud, Mobile, Backend, Desktop and IoT. We are not limited to the Googleverse!
Novice/beginner speakers are welcome to apply! If you’re looking to get into speaking at conferences, this could be a great chance for you. The best piece of advice we have for novices is, “Know your subject, not your lines.” This will keep you from getting stuck if you happen to fall off script, since your knowledge of the topic will allow you to steer yourself back on track.
