We’re always on the lookout for new speakers. It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned veteran or this would be your first talk, if you have something you feel passionate about, we want to hear from you! Need a little help getting started? We have you covered.

Thanks to our amazing sponsors we can also provide support for travel and accommodation for speakers outside of the North East.

As far as topics go, as long as it’s related to frontend, we’re happy: From CSS to HTML, JavaScript frameworks to Web Components, testing to tooling, accessibility to performance. We’re open to suggestions!

Each event has two 20 minutes slots which can be filled by either one speaker or two different speakers.
