Call for Speakers – Fall 2012 ClientDev Connections


John Papa and I just sent out a call for abstracts for the upcoming Fall 2012 DevConnections conference to be held in Las Vegas, NV. If you’re interested in presenting on client-side development topics such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery (or another JavaScript library), Silverlight 5, Windows 8 Metro style app development, or other related topics please submit session ideas. If you know someone else who may be interested, please forward the information. Here’s the official announcement that was sent out.


Call for Speakers – Fall 2012 ClientDev Connections

We’d like to extend an invitation to submit abstracts for consideration to speak at the Fall 2012 Microsoft ClientDev Connections conference (part of DevConnections) in Las Vegas, October 29th – November 1, 2012. Pre-con workshops will be October 28th and post-con workshops will be on November 2nd. This is one of the new tracks at DevConnections focusing on client-side development technologies such as HTML5/CSS3, JavaScript technologies, Silverlight, and Windows 8 Metro-style apps.

The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 2nd, 2012.
To submit sessions please use this URL:

Please keep the abstracts under 200 words each and in one paragraph. No bulleted items or line breaks, and please use a spell-checker. Do not email abstracts, you need to use the web-based tool to submit them.

Please submit AT LEAST 3 abstracts. There are are a limited number of speaker slots so it will help your chances of being selected if you submit 4 or more abstracts. Also, you are encouraged to suggest all-day pre or post conference workshops as well. We need to finalize the conference content and the track layout in just a few weeks, so we need your abstracts no later than Monday, April 2nd, 2012. No exceptions will be granted on late submissions!

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* CSS3
* JavaScript development techniques
* jQuery or other script libraries
* Silverlight 5
* Windows 8 Metro-style apps
* XAML design concepts
* Anything else related to client-side development

Please realize that while we want a lot of the new and the cool, it's also fine to propose sessions on the more mundane "real world" stuff as it pertains to client-side development. 

What you will get if selected:

* $500 per regular conference talk.
* Compensation for full-day workshops ranges from $500 for 1-20 attendees to $2500 for 200+ attendees.
* Coach airfare and hotel stay paid by the conference (up to $500 is covered for your flight)
* Free admission to all of the co-located conferences
* The adoration of attendees

To repeat: the deadline for submissions is Monday, April 2nd, 2012 and the URL once again is

Your continued support of DevConnections conferences is appreciated!
