Clojurex Cfp 2019 - Share Your Experiences

ClojureX conference is a great opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with other Clojure developers at a supportive and friendly conference. As well as learning all the latest technology in the Clojureverse, its a once a year chance to meet other developers in London to build new relationships and renew existing friendships.

We want to hear your experiences with Clojure/ClojureScript in what ever form, as well as any related topics. Have you created some neat technology or discovered a useful practice? Are you working on challenging or innovative projects? Every developers journey with Clojure and functional programming is different, so you will have learnt something that others haven’t and so we encourage you to share.

Submit your talk proposal via the CfP Google form

Deadline for the CfP submission is Monday 24th June 2019.

The CfP process in brief

Talks will be selected by Skills Matter and the Programme Committee on the basis of making the conference a varied and highly valuable event. Submission is open to anyone, and we encourage first-time speakers to submit a proposal. We also encourage co-presenting talks with multiple speakers.

Members of the Programme Committee are happy to offer coaching and assistance on talk proposals and we have a video tutorial to help shape your thoughts into a submission

Every speaker accepted will receive a free ticket to the conference.

All speakers are required to follow the SkillsMatter code of conduct
