Call for Proposals - Speaking at Next.js Conf (October 2023)
Next.js Conf is a celebration of our community on October 26th, with over 100,000 registrants last year and 50,000+ live viewers. We want to hear how you're helping build a faster web with Next.js with a pre-recorded, 10-minute talk.
We're also accepting a few speakers to give their talk in-person in San Francisco. Please check the appropriate checkbox on the form if you're interested in giving your talk in-person.
We've simplified the submission process this year. Write 1-2 paragraphs summarizing your talk, ideally telling a story about a problem that you or your team solved:
- Scaling your Next.js app
- Migrating to Next.js and how it pushed your business forward
- How you’re using the latest features from the App Router
- Optimizing the performance of your application
- How your company is using Next.js
- …or anything else your find interesting
CFPs do not need to be polished or scripted. We just want to hear what you plan to talk about. Deadline: September 24, 2023 at 11:45 pm PST.
We'll approve or decline every submission by September 29th. Approval will be based on the following criteria:
- Is your story focused on how Next.js changed how you or your team works, or how Next.js helped improve your site's performance and delight your users?
- Is your talk something novel and something that will educate other Next.js developers watching the conference?
