ReactFoo Delhi is a single-track event with Birds of Feather (BOF) and speaker connect sessions organized in parallel to talks in C D Deshmukh auditorium. Workshops and tutorials will be held on 15 and 17 November.
Guidelines for submitting talks for ReactFoo:
- Submit your proposal early so that we have more time to iterate if the proposal has potential.
- Write detailed outlines because an abstract is an abstract – it only gives us an ‘abstract’ idea of what you plan to speak about. Specify the key takeaway(s) for the audience.
- Submit draft slides with your proposal, ideally 7 days after you submit your talk.
- Add a two-minute pitch video, telling us what your talk is about and why participants should attend it. Check samples of pitch videos on https://hasgeek.tv
- Use gender neutral language in your abstract and draft slides. The world is diverse as is the React ecosystem. Let’s make this diversity visible.
We are interested in case studies and talks which expose participants to new approaches. We typically don’t accept:
- How-to talks
- Talks on topics which have been covered in previous editions of ReactFoo. View all talks from previous editions of ReactFoo on https://hasgeek.tv/reactfoo
- Beginner level or introductory talks
Proposals will be shortlisted and reviewed by ReactFoo speakers’ alumni, consisting of practitioners from the community. Make sure your abstract contains the following information:
- Key insights and takeaways for the audience.
- Overall flow of the content.
You must submit links to videos of talks you have delivered in the past, or record and upload a two-min self-recorded video explaining what your talk is about, and why is it relevant for ReactFoo Delhi.
You must also submit links to the following along with your proposal:
- A detailed outline, or
- Mindmap, explaining the structure of the talk, or
- Draft slides.
Honorarium for selected speakers; travel grants:
Selected speakers and workshop instructors will receive an honorarium of Rs. 3,000 for speaking at the conference. Confirmed speakers and instructors also get a pass to the conference. We do not provide free passes for speakers’ colleagues and spouses.
We try to offer travel grants to:
- Creators of original projects/work that has wide adoption in the community.
- Women and persons of non-binary gender who are selected to speak at the conference.
ReactFoo Delhi is funded through ticket sales and sponsorships. Travel grants will vary accordingly.
