Call For Papers

Each year we meticulously vet and select remarkable speakers to deliver the best talks on web development. Whether it’s Frontend, Backend, DevOps, Mobile or Design that you care about, join us to learn about the most modern practices and techniques. A truly 360° conference!

DEVit is the leading web developer conference in South East Europe - on June 10th and 11th 2018 in Thessaloniki, Greece. Organized once per year, DEVit has become known for its top speaking talent, a mixture of world-class and world-renowned developers, highly specialized technology niches and developers who are the edge of the technological frontiers.

The attendees of the conference are the most highly trained and most motivated web developers, representing the cream of the crop in talent South East Europe has to offer. DEVit, now in its third year, has become the defacto meeting point for all seasoned web development professionals.

DEVit is organised by the non-profit, local communities: SKGTech (http://skgtech.io) and SHESHARP (http://www.shesharp.org/). The whole organization and operations are being performed during our free time with a vision to promote, empower and educate the technological talent, something everyone stands to benefit from.

Topics we’re on the lookout for DEVit 2018:

DevOps
• AWS, GCP, Azure, API Design, Microservices, Containers, CI/CD, Infra as Code

Backend
• ASP.NET, PHP7, RoR, Java, Redis, Scala, Elixir, NoSQL databases

Mobile

Frontend
• React, Vue, Web performance, Chrome Platform APIs, Webpack, SPA, Templating, MVC

Design
• Cross functional working, Prototyping, UX Research and Evaluation, UX Design, Product Design, Style Guides

Tips for writing a good proposal for a good talk:

This is a user conference, tell us why your presentation is a good fit for DEVit. Because DEVit is for and by users, product and vendor pitches are not appropriate.

• Talk about real world scenarios and emphasize knowledge transfer from your experiences
• Let people know what your talk is about through a simple and topical title.
• Provide as much detail as possible
• Keep people in mind, let them know what they will take away from it
• Limit the scope of your talk to what you can cover in 30 minutes
• Diversity is important, does your presentation include a person of color, a woman, or an underrepresented group at tech • conferences?
• Present something relevant. One of your challenges as a proposer is to demonstrate that you understand that attendees might need an extra reason to pay attention to something that they might otherwise think of as "settled"

Proposal don’ts

These items are surefire ways of not getting past the initial review.
• Sales pitches
No, just don’t. It’s acceptable to mention your company’s product during a presentation but it should never be the focus of your talk

• Bulk submissions
If your proposal reads as generic talk that has been submitted to a number of conferences, it will not pass the initial review. Granted that a talk can be a polished version of earlier talk, but the proposal should be tailored for DEVit.
