Call for Papers Talk Ideas

OpenWest Conference sessions cover a wide range of topics related to Open Source, Open Hardware, Open Standards, and Open Data. We encourage you to "think outside the box" to come up with your own unique topics.

Due to financial constraints most conferences tend to pick speakers to present multiple talks. Therefore it is advisable to submit a few talk ideas, not just one. By submitting a single talk you may lessen your chances of being selected.

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

  • Containers
  • Virtualization
  • Various programming languages
  • Development principles
  • Security
  • Mobile-first design
  • Testing (unit, functional, etc.)
  • Version control
  • User Experience/Usability
  • Building APIs (REST, SOAP, whatever)
  • Continuous Integration
  • Framework-related topics
  • Professional development
  • Security
  • Hardware hacking
  • Privacy
