Want to Speak at DevTeach?

I’m privileged to be the Tech Chair for Cloud and Windows 8 tracks at DevTeach. This time out, the conference is being held at the Delta Meadowvale in Mississauga from May 28 to 30 (see http://www.devteach.com/ for details). All of these sessions (in both topics) will take place on the same day, which (based on the current schedule) will be the 29th.

So what am I looking for? Topics that will help developers solve the problems that they face every day. Topics that will let developers become more effective. Topics that go beyond the introductory level (they can already get that through various channels, such as Channel 9) and get into the meat of the technology. The template for submission is available at:  http://www.devteach.com/download/DevTeachToronto2013SessionAbstractsTemplate.xlsx. The deadline for submission isn’t until the end of January, so you have the time to be creative. And I look forward to seeing what the developer community can come up with.

A few things you might want to keep in mind as you think about your possible topics:

  • The audience for the conference will be about 50% web developer ( including about 10-20% of those who are SharePoint developers) , 25% other developer (client, mobile, etc) and 25% admin
  • I’m mostly looking for developer talks but I am willing to consider admin talks. I won’t be selecting more than one admin talk for each track
  • Crossover topics are possible. I’ll determine which track they will fall into based on the complete list of submissions.
  • ObjectSharp will be doing an intermediate to advanced level post conference workshop on Windows 8 XAML, so keep that in mind

If you have any questions, please ask. I’m happy to provide any assistance or guidance that you might need.
