Call for speakers

Our official fintech_devcon 2024 call for speakers closes at 11:59 p.m. PST on March 1. Submissions received after March 1 will be added to a waitlist.

Who should speak at fintech_devcon?

Developers and engineers

If you design, deliver, maintain, and update fintech software, fintech_devcon is the place to share what you’ve learned. We’re looking for developers, engineers, software architects, or dev team leaders.

Product leaders and managers

We ask product managers, owners, and leaders to share best practices on how to execute a product roadmap, bring products and functionality to market, write documentation, optimize design, and conduct research.

“I’ve learned more about different areas of the fintech space in 72 hours than I’ve learned in a couple of years.”

- Alex Gillette, Director of Buisness Development at Rize

Type of talks

Roadblock talks

45 minutes

As a builder, you’ve encountered numerous hurdles, snags, and problems while working on fintech products. These sessions explain a “roadblock” you’ve encountered and should teach other builders how to overcome it using shortcuts, workarounds, and other unique resolutions. Please share tangible solutions like guides, templates, and detailed steps that they can replicate in their work. No sales pitches or demos.

Workshops

90 minutes

Unlike roadblock talks, workshops offer hands-on coding demonstrations where speakers teach attendees how to build and solve a particular problem. Sessions must be interactive with a clear goal from the start and speakers must provide the required tools and repos prior to the event. Attendees should walk away with a completed fintech project. If you’d like assistance shaping your workshop, email us. No sales pitches or demos.

No demos or sales pitches

  • Actionable best practices, roadmaps, tech stacks, and automation techniques you’ve seen succeed
