Topics

As always DevFest Vienna is about new trends in software development for mobile, cloud, social and web. You are encouraged to submit talks about upcoming and trending topics which will be relevant in the future.

Type of Sessions

A regular talk (e.g. presentation, tech talk, etc) is supposed to take about 45 minutes with some minutes afterwards for questions and answers.

In addition, there is the opportunity for highlight presentations of shorter duration (20 minutes and some minutes for questions & answers). They are ideal for presenting an idea or a toolset without going too much into technical details.

Language of the Sessions

All sessions will be held in English.

Equipment

Each room is equipped with a beamer and network connectivity for your notebook PC. We also have adapters for MacBook / MacBook Air (MiniDP).

Participant Requirements

Let us know what requirements participants should satisfy to fully make use of your talk or presentation.

General coding knowledge and developing experience can be assumed. Special language knowledge, experience with specific APIs or frameworks should however be announced in advance.

FAQ

Do you cover travel expenses?

Generally we won’t be able to cover travel expenses. We have a limited budget to subsidize costs for community speakers. If you need financial support please specify them in the comments section of the submission form.

We have a diversity budget for speakers, so if you are from an underrepresented group, please do let us know and we will do everything we can to help!
