Writing a proposal
UIKonf is nothing without your talk proposals. We think that everyone has something interesting to talk about, so please think about that fun, unusual, difficult, or surprising thing you've done and submit a talk to UIKonf so we can all hear about it.
What can I talk about?
We are looking for speakers on a wide variety of topics related to iOS development, including but not limited to:
- Core Data
- Graphics & Animation
- Audio & Video
- Xcode and related tools
- User Experience
- Open Source
If it's relevant to your work as an iOS developer, we want to hear about it.
How long should my talk be?
Talks will be a maximum of 30 minutes plus an optional 10 minutes Q&A, but if you have something interesting that can be said in less time, that's great too. We'll build the schedule around the best proposals chosen by the community.
Who will I be talking to?
Your audience will be iOS developers from all over Europe (and the world!). They'll be enthusiastic, passionate, and eager to hear you.
Why should I give a talk?
It's a great opportunity to be heard by a large slice of the iOS community, and we'll put together a high-quality video of your talk that you can share with everyone who couldn't get there on the day.
How anonymous does my proposal have to be?
Although the proposal process is anonymous, we can't prevent you from including identifying information within the proposal itself. Sometimes this is inevitable: if you want to give a talk about this great framework you built at Apple, it's not going to take too much detective work to figure our where you work. That's fine and there's no need to go to great lengths to conceal your identity if it makes the proposal more difficult to write.
We just ask you to respect the spirit of the process as far as it is sensible and practical. We want talks to be chose because of what they're about, not because of who is giving them.
Do I have to go through with it if I propose something?
Of course not! No one is going to force you to give a talk just because you proposed it. You always have the option to withdraw your proposal if you change your mind or discover you can't make it to the conference.
