The call for speakers is open for O'Reilly Fluent 2018

Since 2012, Fluent has brought together talented people from diverse backgrounds who are building great projects and experiences for the web. Developers, software engineers, interaction and UX designers, and web professionals come to Fluent to share their experiences and expertise, and to keep up with the sheer volume of new and evolving web development tools and practices.

We're looking for speakers to share new techniques and approaches, proven best practices, original research and exceptional technical skills. From frontend to backend to performance and security, Fluent provides web professionals with the skills, connections, and inspiration they need to build better web experiences for today's users and customers.

As a Fluent speaker, you'll be joining a lineup of the most interesting minds in web development. Don't worry if you don't yet have a lot of speaking experience. This is a great opportunity to share what you know, build your profile in the community, and establish connections with new colleagues.

See our call for speakers for more details on the topics we're interested in and tips for creating a great proposal. Have questions or want to run ideas by the program committee? Check out the Fluent Slack channel.
