Would you like to give a DEV talk/workshop?

jess profile image Jess Lee (she/her) ・1 min read

Since we announced DEV workshops earlier this month, we've gone live five times. It's been great fun figuring out the streaming technology and coordinating with our excellent speakers. Every event feels like a mini-conference and I'm looking forward to, one day, organizing some in-person DEV events.

Here's Anna giving an Introduction to Testing with React & Jest. If you zoom in, you'll see that she's using a doggy compatibility app for the demo 😊 🐶

Anyway! Let me get to the point of this post. Many of you have reached out about becoming a speaker, so here are the deets:

  • Talks range from 30 - 90 minutes, up to you.
  • We're super flexible on when you can present. Since people are tuning in from all around the globe, it'll always be the right time for someone.
  • No topic is too general, niche, beginner, or advanced.

If you're interested in giving a talk, please fill out this form and I'll get in touch!

And for those of you who haven't tuned in yet, here are our upcoming events.

Doing it was fun. I'm going to do more in the future for sure 🙂

I'd love to do a talk/workshop, however I'm a CS student, so I don't know what I could talk about that others would find interesting. Any suggestions?

I'd be interested to know what you think about what you're learning at uni. Tips, things you'd do differently, etc...

What do you think?

I'd love to introduce more technologies into the curriculum, things like Git and maybe some cloud technologies. Not to teach those technologies, but to teach concepts they bring to the table. Things like immutable infrastructure, event driven code, CI/CD. I'm actually graduated now, but before I left I spun up a GitLab server for students (and professors!) To experiment with Git and CI/CD.

I have a question. Do you have to be a sustaining member in order to give a talk? Or it's only a requirement to attend talks/workshops.

Thanks!

You do not need to be a sustaining member to give a talk!

Did you build your own streaming platform? Just wow. That's quite complicated if my guess about the tech stack is correct (rtmp for streaming -> ffmpeg to transcode/transmux the stream to HLS -> some back-end to serve the m3u8 and ts files + some front-end stuff and probably hls.js for the video)

Are the talks recorded? How can I watch them afterwards?

P.S. I think the CFP link is not working anymore.

Hey @ice_lenor ! Most talks were recorded and you can find them here: dev.to/t/devlive

And yeah, we're not organizing new events at the moment so the CFP link does not work. Should I reach out to you when we start organizing again?

Got it, thanks!

P.S. Yes, please ping me when you're having more events - it sounds great, I'd love to participate.

@jess , Are the talks uploaded or posted anywhere afterward? I asked a question during Elizabeth's talk and wanted to go back and listen to it.

@jess @ben

I'd really like to be able to go back and watch past events. I could have sworn someone either responded to me elsewhere or made a comment that the sessions were recorded and available somewhere.

I would love to do this but I have such a hard time coming up with topics I think others would find interesting. :(

Just think of your own recent experiences. What did you struggle with, but eventually pulled off? What was a topic that you couldn't find enough information about on the internet, and thus did some research yourself? What did you learn in a recent project? If you managed to learn something yourself in a process, big chance that someone else can learn from it too!

Maybe when I have a bit more time. :) Topic is not a problem. I always have something to tell.

The form is private. Are you accepting new proposals?

Is it still possible to give a talk? The Typeform link is broken...
