Okay but keep in mind that the earlier I buy the airplane ticket the cheaper it gets so please don't take too long to finish that.

If you have ideas for an interesting talk, submit a proposal, and perhaps you may have your costs covered? It's great to see people coming from such different parts of the world!

Oh, so they cover the costs if I can give an interesting talk? I already had several ideas in mind to speak during DConf but I never imagined that could get my costs covered.

Travel + accommodation as I understand it. But yes that is covered if you do a talk.

If you submit a talk proposal and it's accepted, then you are eligible after the conference to have your travel and accommodation expenses reimbursed. As long as they're reasonable (e.g. no first-class plane tickets or 5-star hotels, etc.).

Alright, thank you very much for the information.

While I encourage you to submit a talk, I'll point out that there were only six regular talks per day this year, and a lot of those were core contributors, Andrei's students, and prominent members of the community. So hope for the best but maybe don't be too disappointed if there's no room on the schedule.

Most definitely, submit a talk. I wouldn't worry about having "credentials," interesting talks from people who are not regular speakers are always welcome. -Steve

A major part of that outcome was the low number of total proposals. The core contributors and others kind of chipped in to save the day. We want tons of proposals. Ali

Also, it's low cost to submit, so there's no reason not to do so. Even if it's turned down, you don't have much to lose. You'd obviously have more information about the proposals than I do, but there must not have been many given how few presentations came from outside the inner circle this year.

Even if a proposal gets turned down, one can always submit it at another programmers' conference, or even a meetup. They're always looking for material. (I gave a talk at a meetup just last month.)

Thanks Mr. Bright. And thanks to all of you for encouraging me.

Note that my schedule over the next year will probably preclude me from having the time to prepare a talk. So there'll likely be one slot that I usually take waiting to be filled by someone with great new ideas. This is something I'd personally prefer in general to be honest. It's a far better display of an active community if it's not just the same people presenting every year.

Well, I'll be trying to arrange my schedule so I can raise my hand for emcee duties again at least. So I won't be _completely_ invisible. If I was submitting, given the success of my "ground up tutorial" approach this year I'd also straight up ask in the general forums if there's any topics I should cover. So if I don't do a talk, at least someone else will have a solid idea for one ;-)

Hey! That’s awesome! The conferences are usually around May. And the announcements and finalization don’t really have a specific date but usually around Jan/feb ish (just did a quick search for the different years). Cheers Ali
