The Ajax Experience Boston Oct. 23-25: Call for Presenters

Category: The Ajax Experience

One of our goofs with the first Ajax Experience show was that the speaker selection process was somewhat closed. In an evening, we put together a list of some of the Ajax-related speakers we knew or knew of, invited them, and that was pretty much that.

For this year’s show (Oct. 23-25), we’d like to open up the process a bit. If you have interest in speaking at the show, please send a note to tae-speaker at ajaxian.com (replacing the ‘ at ‘ with @, of course). Include:

  • Your experience as a speaker
  • The topic(s) you’d like to address, including a brief abstract for each proposed talk
  • A brief comment about why you’d be a good choice for the topic(s)

We will be reviewing these emails and accepting new speakers to the show up until September 1, 2006; however, submissions received by August 4th will receive highest priority. We haven’t finalized the tracks at the event yet, but we’re very keen to see submissions on the following topics:

  • User Experience / User Interface design
  • JavaScript
  • Frameworks: JavaScript, .NET, PHP, Java, Ruby, etc.
  • Case Studies / Practical advice learned from developing real Ajax applications

We pay for airfare and hotel for the speakers.

Thanks!

I know of a couple of people for who travel expenses can make the difference between submitting and not. I’m assuming that expenses will be covered, but it would be nice to see this explicitly stated.

Ask Michael who developed Ajax.NET…

Howard: Good idea; I’ve updated the posting.

Ben,

I have been writing a conference management system for quite a while and your post fits into it perfectly. Basically, the website manages the submissions and then allows you ro review and approve them as sessions. From there, the program is created and shown on the web.

I would love to give you a demo if you are interested.

Thanks.
