Submitting to a conference can be intimidating! And even if it isn't, you might be having trouble coming up with an idea. Hopefully we can help!
On November 9th we hosted an online video chat where members of the Program Committee and Core Team chatted about the CFP, the content they hoped to see, and answered audience questions about ideas and proposals. You can listen to the recording here (with only some audio issues, apologies!):
We also hosted a session like this in 2015 for EmberConf 2016; you can listen to that recording too:
These are some of the ideas that came out of the recent call, as well as last year's call:
The best talks use concrete examples to explain ideas, and then explain how to apply those ideas to other problems.
These are just some possible ideas, and by no means the only things we'll accept. Whatever you've come up with, we'd love to hear about it!
A special thank you to the core and program committee folk who joined us for the 11/09 brainstorming session: Leah Silber, Yehuda Katz, Godfrey Chan, Edward Faulkner, Jamie White and Jade Applegate.
