Hello, developers. We’re looking for you! DevNet Create’s call for speakers and workshop presenters is now open and your deadline to submit is just around the corner: Friday, November 22, 2019. We want you to submit your sessions, lightning talks, and workshops – we want to hear all your ideas!
And as always, we’re looking for people eager to learn and innovate. From beginners to experts. First-timers to seasoned pros. The developers, the experts, the leaders. We’re looking for people just like you to inspire us all…to See It. Learn it. Code it. See below for content formats and tracks – and avoid pitches, please. Pick your format, select your track and submit.

Pick a Presentation Format


20 minute presentations that explore a real-world solution. We want you to tell us: What is the solution? Why is the solution employed and what problem does it solve? The tech talk must also include a description of how the solution was built, what tools and methodologies were employed and, finally, what is the measure of the solution’s success.

Lightning talks

10 minute, demo-driven presentations that scratch the surface of a solution. These will be more intimate engagements that approach a topic from a high level, allowing for conversation and questions. Be innovative, think out of the box. Inspire us all, with lightning speed.


45 or 90 minute sessions in a small group setting of no more than eight people. Participants are encouraged to bring their own computers — and let us all watch you code in real time during the workshop. Workshops are a terrific, hands-on way to have 1:1 communication with your audience. The smaller format makes it easier for attendees to ask questions and engage. Each accepted workshop will run twice, the first on day one and the second on day two.
