If so, you are invited to submit a proposal to lead session, panel discussions, and tutorials at the 2008 MySQL Conference & Expo. The submission deadline for all proposals is midnight (PST) October 30, 2007.
Be creative! Conference participants want to hear about real-world scenarios using MySQL, about ways they can be more productive, or write better code. Please submit original session and tutorial ideas that focus on hands-on instruction and real-world examples.
Be descriptive! Include in your proposal as much detail about the planned presentation as possible. The more we know about what you plan to present, the better.
Be specific! Proposals which are vague or cover too much material are unlikely to be accepted. If you think your proposal covers too much of a topic, consider submitting two proposals which split the material into different sessions. Want to learn how best to get your conference submission accepted? Read the advice Baron Schwartz offers!
Also keep in mind that we need tutorials and sessions in for attendees with a variety of skill levels! Consider proposing a number of varied skill-level sessions, and please be clear about the experience and knowledge level of the audience that you are targeting: novice, intermediate, or expert. We look for a balance of all three experience levels when determining the conference schedule.
A limited number of speaking opportunities are also available through conference sponsorship. Contact Sharon Cordesse at (707) 827-7065 or email@example.com for more information.
Even if you’re not one for public speaking, feel free to suggest speakers, topics, or technologies you think we should explore or wish you knew more about. Who’s the person you’ve always wanted to see speak? Who is doing groundbreaking work that we should feature but is too busy to submit? Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what would make the next MySQL Conference & Expo a must-attend event.
