We’re pleased to announce our conference. The OpenWest Conference is one of the best Open Source conferences where community members from around the western U.S. come together to learn and share information about the latest trends and technologies in development, system adminstration, and more.
We know speakers are key to the success of a conference and hope you will submit a talk. In appreciation of your efforts, our speaker compensation package includes:
We use blind community voting as the main factor in deciding which speakers to invite. Other factors include the number of talks per topic, travel cost, and the number of talks submitted by that speaker. We do NOT take into consideration gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation.
We are also committed to ensuring the conference is a place where ideas are exchanged, old friends get together, new friends meet and harassment is not tolerated. We expect speakers, attendees and sponsor representatives to be professional and courteous to each other. We reserve the right to remove, without refund, ANY attendee (speaker or otherwise) who is unable to adhere to this policy.
Speakers are expected to read and abide by our full Code of Conduct.
It's always good practice to know your audience. Many of the OpenWest Conference attendees are Utah residents who prefer workplace appropriate language. Obscene remarks or the heavy use of profanity will not be appreciated by the majority of attendees.
