Types of talks

Keynotes (35 minutes)

Keynote speakers will take the main stage and headline the event. Speakers should masterfully demonstrate the skills that led to their reputation as a thought-leader in their area of expertise. Presentations should leave the attendees inspired, entertained, and educated on an important fintech topic.

Roadblock talks (45 minutes)

These talks focus on sharing knowledge and lessons learned while building payments and fintech products. Think deep dives and industry insights that developers would find useful.

Workshops (90 minutes)

These talks are hands-on coding sessions that teach attendees useful processes or steps. Participants should walk away with a tangible lesson learned and a project that they complete.

Panels or Fireside chats (45 minutes)

Panels feature a moderator and 2-3 guests. Fireside chats feature two people. Please note, only 1 person needs to submit for this category. Submitters must know who else will be involved in the panel and list them in their submission.

Know your audience

The audience wants to learn about building—not about you or your product. They want to know what can help them build faster. How to transform their work? They want to gain insight from your lived experiences, but your talk should give them something to take away and apply in their workday.

  • What skills, knowledge, or understanding will they have after listening to your talk?
  • What examples, templates, or tools will you share with them that they don’t already have?
  • How is your topic different from or better than similar information available elsewhere?

No demos & sales pitch

We know you want to share your awesome product with audiences, but this stage is not the right place. Talks are strictly educational.
