Please Support #DevConDebut & Help Us Bring New Voices Into Software Development
Are you tired of hearing from the same old faces at dev conferences (including mine)?
#DevConDebut is a brand new conference designed to promote new talent. Every speaker will be someone who has never spoken at a conference before.
We're aiming to take a few risks to bring fresh ideas and new voices into the developer community. But we need your support to do this.
Conference organisers like to use experience speakers; they're a safer bet and they can make events easier to promote.
If, like me, you want to see new talent being encouraged, then you can help in one of 3 ways:
1. Buy a ticket - come along and support our new speakers
2. Spread the word - tell friends, colleagues and complete strangers in the checkout queue about #DevConDebut
3. Speak at #DevConDebut - we're open to all ideas from new speakers on any topic in software development
All the proceeds from ticket sales will help fund educational programmes in maths and computer programming at Bletchley Park and The National Museum of Computing. It's all in a very good cause.
I know folk are busy, and you've probably got 1,001 other things to worry about; but your support will be vitally important to get this off the ground. If, like me, you want to get behind new talent and hear new voices, please lend us your support. It can't happen without you.
