Thank you for your interest in speaking at RubyConfIndia 2017! The conference will be from January 27-29, 2017 in Kochi City, Kerala state in India. We’re looking forward to seeing all your proposals!
Please read these guidelines all the way through for the best chance of having your proposal selected. If you have questions or concerns about anything you see here, please don’t hesitate to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regular talks are 25-minute blocks, including any Q&A you want to do.
If your session is selected for inclusion in our program, you get:
- Free admission to the conference.
- Twin occupancy room (you will share a room with another speaker) at Le Meridien, Kochi.
- The respect and adulation of your peers!
- The opportunity to be paired with a speaker mentor before the conference to help you with talk prep. This will be automatic if you’re a new speaker, optional for experienced speakers, and highly recommended for everyone.
We reserve ticket space for folks whose talks are not accepted, so you can wait on buying a ticket until you hear about the status of your talk.
What are we looking for?
In speakers: a diverse and creative line-up of speakers with a range of experience levels (in Ruby, in programming, and in public speaking).
In talks: a range of topics, both occupational (i.e., about Ruby, Rails, code-heavy, etc.) and organizational (i.e., about team dynamics, communication, etc.), and all applicable hybrids. We want talks aimed at developers coming from a wide range of experience levels, from beginner-friendly how-tos to cautionary tales to deep dives for experienced devs. We want talks about all the different parts of the Ruby/Rails ecosystem, including related technologies (data stores, front-end frameworks) and related teams (QA, product management, clients).
