Talk Ideas

As always we’re excited about all kinds of different topics. You could say that as long as it’s somehow related to PHP and you’re really excited about it, we want to hear it! It doesn’t matter who you are, this event is all about technology. DPC has an established reputation as the best place to expand a developer’s skill set and improve existing practice, and that remains our focus this year.

We’re looking for high-quality, technical sessions from speakers who can cover advanced topics and keep our demanding audience inspired. Tutorials are 3 or 6 hours in length and the standard conference sessions should be 45 minutes.

To get the ideas flowing, here's a few suggestions:

  • Software design
  • Programming
  • Software architecture
  • Storage/persistence
  • Development teams
  • Developing software
  • Development principles
  • Security
  • Infrastructure
  • JavaScript best practices and techniques
  • Front end techniques
  • User experience/Usability
  • Any topic you can imagine, there are no bad submissions

We’re very excited to see what you can come up with, and we’re looking forward to reading all the different proposals.

Tips for Submission

We strongly encourage potential speakers to submit more than one submission on more than one topic. The more submissions you contribute, the more options you give us to pick you. Be sure your talk title and abstract define the exact topic you want to talk about and what you hope people will learn from the session. In previous years, some submissions sounded interesting but we just didn’t have enough detail for them to make the final cut.
