Newcomers welcome at Voxxed Days Berlin!
If you are interested in Voxxed Days Berlin but have never given a talk before we are happy to help. We offer a mentoring program for speaker newbies. Our team is happy to help you with:
- finding the right topic for a talk,
- the wording of the talk abstract,
- best practices for presenting and
- feedback of your performance.
Of course - as a speaker you have free access to the conference!
This is how it works:
- Join the Call for Papers (Deadline September 30, 2015) and check the box for Newcomer mentoring program
- Remember: You do not need to apply with a real abstract. Just let us know what technologies interest you, what topic you would like to cover in your first talk, etc.
- After the Call for Papers is over, the mentors will contact you to start working on your first talk. Please understand that we might not be able to help every newcomer who applied. The slots for newcomer talks and the number of mentors are limited.
- If needed we can schedule a rehearsal of your talk the evening before the conference starts (in Berlin) or have a Google Hangout session
We can also recommend the Javaland mentoring program that helped us draft our newcomer program!
