CukeUp! AU 2016 call for papers

Theo EnglandJun 21, 2016

CukeUp! AU will be held in Sydney on November 17th-18th 2016.

Submit a workshop or talk proposal to our very own progressive agile conference. We're on the lookout for fun, inspiring, and diverse sessions about building great software. Although we have a soft spot for topics around Behaviour-Driven Development, don't let us sway your thinking. We want to hear stories about teams who think differently and go against the stagnant status quo.

This year we’re introducing lightning talk sessions too. CukeUp! AU only fits 120 bodies, and runs for just two days, so short and sweet is in our nature! If you have a topic which might not stretch to half an hour, or you’re new to the public speaking game, why not propose one of these?

For reference and inspiration, check out our talks from last year

If you are reading this and thinking, hey, my pal would be great for this, please share it! We want to hear from as many voices as possible - especially from women and groups normally under-represented at tech conferences. Remember you can always team up with another if you that’s more comfortable.

All attendees, speakers, sponsors and volunteers at CukeUp! AU are required to agree with the following code of conduct. Staff will enforce this throughout the event.

We are also partnering with Speak Easy, a global initiative to help new speakers from under represented groups take to the stage at tech conferences. You can apply for free mentorship through their site.

Our Call for Papers ends August 5th.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions/concerns/comments!

Team CukeUp!

Special thanks to Elise Aplin, Sharon Robson, Michele Cross for joining the programme committee and helping us pick sessions.
