Anybody who wants to!
We are looking for talks that are relevant to C++ programmers. That does not mean that all talks need to be about code. In general, we are just looking for great talks. Two great examples of great talks that are not necessarily C++ specific:
The conference will have three tracks, but these tracks won’t be labeled per se. Instead, we are looking for a mixture of great talks that are either technical or fun. You might consider aiming for one of these two categories:
Technical talks can be aimed at anyone from beginner to advanced users of C++. Sometimes they focus on breadth, sometimes they focus on depth. Some good examples of technical talks are:
Edutainment is when you combine education with entertainment. These types of talks are a great way to keep your audience engaged while teaching them something at the same time. Inspirational talks can be inspiring in different ways: inspiring you to learn, inspiring to share with others, etc. Some examples of edutainment / inspirational talks are:
If you feel unsure about your talk or how to present it, you can ask us for help! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions and talk ideas and we can help you. Try doing it as soon as possible to ensure there is enough time for us to answer you and for you to have enough time to write your proposal before the deadline.
If you are selected to be a speaker, we will cover the price of the ticket for you.
CppNorth is organized by a non-profit organization, so any speaker who can have their travel cost covered by their company is strongly encouraged to do that. Your employer will be listed as a travel sponsor if they do so. However, it is very important for us that anybody who could give a good talk will not be prevented for financial reasons, which is why we can help any selected speaker by covering the cost of the transportation and hotel.
Speakers will be supplied with a special hotel reservation link. For the transportation, depending on your location, we will give you a maximum expected budget that covers an economy class flight and will reimburse you. If you need something different for any reason, please contact us once selected and we will discuss it on a case-by-case basis.
As a speaker, you will play a key role in how attendees enjoy their conference. That is why you will be held to a high standard regarding your language and behavior while on stage. No oppressive humor will be tolerated and we ask you to try your best to avoid vocabulary that can make part of the public feel ignored or excluded. If you have doubts about a joke or part of your talk and want to discuss it, you can contact us at email@example.com
