What is the deadline for submitting a talk idea? Submissions end on April 30th, 2018.
How can I get chosen to speak? You can stand out from our other submissions. Simply read the following thoroughly before submitting your proposals.
How can I design a session that fits Laracon EU? When designing your session, ask yourself the question, “After this session, attendees will be able to return to their company with the ability to _”.
We’re looking for practical and impactful skill growth. Each session should be designed to empower the developer in a meaningful and directly applicable way.
While it’s not ABSOLUTELY necessary to submit your proposal with this in mind. The more thought you put into this aspect of your proposal, the more likely you are to stand out from the hundreds of submissions.
Do I need to have previous speaking experience? We want to hear from you whether or not you are the among the the most eloquent speakers of our time or you have never had a conversation with more than 3 people at once.
However, no small part of imbuing knowledge is delivering information in a way that can be easily understood.
In order to ensure that our attendees get the most from your session, it would be a good idea to give your talk at one or more local meetups. This gives you the opportunity to work out transitions and bugs in your session that will make both you and the audience more satisfied with the end result.
There are many experienced speakers in our community and organization staff who would be happy to provide coaching.
What happens if my session is chosen? We’ll contact you and let you know that we’re interested in your session. We’ll discuss some practicalities and when you confirm that you're interested in joining us, we'll put you on the schedule and announce your participation.
Afterwards, we'll handle all of the organization so that you can focus on living your life and preparing your talk.
What happens if my session is not chosen? We receive a large number of fantastic talk submissions and we can't approve all of them. But we know that it’s not fun to be left wondering what is going to happen. You will be personally contacted by May 16th about whether or not your session has been approved.
Are travel and hotel provided for speakers? Yes, travel costs and hotel reservations are covered for speakers. The provided hotel stay will include breakfasts.
Speakers are invited to attend a speaker’s dinner to welcome them to the event and to get to know the people with whom they will be working.
Speakers will be provided event passes and will have access to all snacks and lunches that are provided. Other dinners and snacks are not provided.
What about childcare? Speakers are granted access to our childcare services free of charge. Childcare will be available during the speaker dinner, workshop day (Aug 29th), and on both conference days (Aug 30th-31st).
