Develop: Brighton 2015 speaker applications now open

If you want to speak at the 10th Develop: Brighton conference, you’d better start preparing.

The conference organisers, Tandem Events, have put out a call for speaker submissions and you have until 19 March to answer it.

Applications must be in line with one of Develop: Brighton’s ten tracks.

These include Evolve: Brighton, which will focus on the trends and technologies that will shape the next decade, and IndieDev: Day – a track specifically designed for startups, students, freelance developers and independent studios.

The conference will take place over three days from 14 – 16 July at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton.

Turn up the speaker

Develop: Brighton’s ethos centres on offering attendees practical advice, best practise guidance and developmental inspiration – meaning all sessions should provide a “take away” statement that clearly summarises what delegates can expect from a session.

All speaker sessions should last no longer than 45 minutes, either in a panel or lecture format, with submissions available here.

“Over the past ten years, we’ve hosted some of the biggest names in the development community as speakers,” commented Andy Lane, managing director of Tandem Events.

“Mark Cerny, Phil Harrison, Dave Perry, Tim Schafer, Ian Livingston, David Braben and Peter Molyneux are industry legends who have shaped our industry and have shared their experiences down by the beach.

“To kick start the next ten years, we are eager to hear from the next generation of developers, using new technology and techniques that will mould and move the developer community forward. If you haven’t spoken at Develop: Brighton before but have a story to tell, we want to hear from you.”
