Last call: Becoming a speaker at Symfony Online conferences 2021

You never talked at a conference before? Or you're an experienced conference speaker? In both cases, this is the perfect opportunity to submit a talk proposal to an online Symfony conference!

Of course, being a speaker or a trainer at any Online Symfony conference means that you’ll receive a free ticket to attend the conference and a speaker package gift! We also provide the hardware for your online talk or workshop: we’ll send you a camera and a mic if yours are not good enough to record your talk or deliver your workshop!

Speaking of recording, all talks will be pre-recorded to enable a smooth conference experience. This will free you (and us) from the stress related to technical issues that can happen during a live. Because we strive for great accessibility, all talks will have subtitles. This means that even if the language of the conference is not your primary language, you can still share your knowledge with confidency: people will understand you no matter what. Since your talk will be pre-recorded, you will be available online to answer questions during or at the end of your talk in the chat! At Symfony Online conferences, you're part of the audience and that's key to a great speaker experience!

Talks should last for 35 minutes, Q&A included. For trainers, workshops won't be pre-recorded neither recorded.

The Diversity Initiative can also help you with your talk. There is a #diversity Slack channel but also a #speaker-mentoring channel. If you need feedback from experienced speakers or other people just starting out their speaking career, come by and say “hi”. Mentors can help you with your talks and rehearsals. They will be happy to share their experiences and help you work on your slides. Read the last Diversity Update blog post for more information.
