Become a speaker

We think New Zealand’s JavaScript community is diverse, forwards thinking, and varied; we want to to give you a chance to share your perspectives and experience with your fellow developers and the next generation of students.

Our call for papers is now live. That means that you (yes you) can apply to become a speaker at nz.js(con);.

Make a talk submission

The conference will have two tracks, which means we’ve got plenty of schedule slots available. We are keen to support both experienced and new speakers. If you’ve never spoken at a conference before we’ll be offering some support to make sure you have a good experience.

Need some help writing your proposal? Check out the resources at We Are All Awesome or drop into the #js-conf channel on our Slack to get a second opinion or three!

All talk slots will be 30 minutes long (25 mins of talk plus 5 minutes of questions). We welcome both intro-level and very technical talks. JavaScript has all kinds of uses, and we’d like the schedule to reflect that. Topics will include (but are not limited to):

  • Web development frameworks
  • Data visualisation
  • Node.js and other server-side technologies
  • ES6 & ES7
  • Build tooling & pipelines
  • Cutting edge new web features
  • Mobile development
  • Testing
  • Security
  • Performance
  • Nodebots
  • Gaming
  • Teaching JavaScript
  • Programming culture
  • Something else we failed to capture here - you tell us!

Please note that nz.js(con); aims to be an inclusive and welcoming event. One step towards that goal is our Code of Conduct - all talk content will be required to adhere to that.
