FullStack 2015: Call for Papers

FullStack 2015

Our second edition of FullStack – the conference for JavaScript, Node & IoT developers – returns June 25th-27th. The conference is independently organised for and by the community.

Following the tremendous response to our Call For Thoughts, and with support from Cian O’Maidin (nearForm), Rob Moran (ARM), Robert Rees (Guardian), Sarah Clarke (Google) and members of our JavaScript, Node & Angular community, we have been able to identify some key themes for this year’s conference:

  • ES6 and io.js
  • App Architectures for Performance, Maintainability, etc.
  • Software rendering
  • Virtual DOM (e.g. React)
  • NodeJS and associated technologies
  • Implementation stories and soft skills
  • Dev Ops/NoOps
  • Microservices
  • AngularJS 2.0 and related topics
  • Hardware
  • Internet of Things

To submit your proposal, head over to the Call for Papers page. We’re especially keen to hear from people who haven’t spoken at the conference before. If you’re worried about presenting alone, feel free to pair with someone on your team. The community is very friendly and this is a safe way to dip your toes in the public speaking arena. If you need some help a great place to start it here.

If you have any questions then please contact us at info@skillsmatter.com.

The CfP will close on March 20th. All presenters will be contacted the week commencing April 6th. 

Please be sure to read the Skills Matter Code of Conduct. It outlines what we expect from our speakers and guests so that we can continue to provide a fantastic environment to learn and share skills for everyone.

CukeUp! 2015: Call for Papers

cukeup_2015cfp

After a sold out 2014 conference, CukeUp! returns to London for its fourth iteration. The conference brings together all stakeholders who use BDD for two days of talks and workshops, helping teams to crack complex software problems. We’re on the look out for talks that will inspire and educate others around BDD and it’s wider practices – so if your team is just starting out on the road to BDD, you’ve got some nifty tips to test the untestable or you’ve got a use case on how to bring technical and non technical teams closer together – we want to hear from you.

We are planning for talks to last around 30 minutes, so keep introductions to a minimum and allow time for questions!

To submit an idea for a talk head over to the Call For Papers page. We’re especially keen to hear from people who haven’t spoken at conferences before. If you are worried about presenting alone, feel free to pair with someone on your team. The CukeUp community is very friendly and this is a safe way to dip your toes in the public speaking arena. If you need some help a great place to start is here.

If you have any questions then please contact us at cukeup@skillsmatter.com.

The CfP will close on January 23rd. All presenters will be contacted the week commencing February 2nd.
