Topics

JSDayIE is a single track 1-day conference dedicated to the entire JS ecosystem and its community in Ireland. We are looking for a multitude of topics and perspectives but most of all we value:

What we value the most
Original topics, presented for the first time
Practical ideas that attendees can apply at work the next day
Trends and hot topics which are relevant in 2023 and beyond
Fresh perspectives on the JS ecosystem

We don'`t have a specific theme for JSDayIE. Instead, we're aiming to select talks that are interesting to as many JavaScript developers as possible. Our audience skill level is intermediate to advanced.

All talks should be in English and 25 minutes long. If you would like to take some questions from the audience, you should reserve 5 minutes out of your 25 minutes slot to allow it. We will be on a tight schedule and will enforce the time limits rigorously. We suggest that you time your presentation accordingly in advance.

Selection process

We are expecting to receive a large number of proposals for JSDayIE 2023. With this in mind, we created a team subject matter experts that will go through the proposals and will decide what to include in the conference agenda.

Each member of the commitee will go through the proposals and will create their own shortlist. Based on the recurrence of a proposal on multiple shortlists we will proceed to place it on the final list. All the speakers will get a response, positive or negative.

We will do our best to build an agenda that covers diverse topics which can be of interest for the majority of attendees interested in the current landscape of the JavaScript world.

Perks

If your proposal gets selected and you accept to join JSDayIE 2023 as a speaker, we will make sure you have the best possible experience. Here are some of the benefits we offer to speakers:

Speaker Perks
Flights and hotel
Speaker dinner the night before the event
Free entrance at the conference
Extra ticket if somebody is joining you

We can help

Not everyone is a natural-born talent on stage. Not everyone can produce kick-ass slide decks. Not everyone is a live-demo master. Not everyone knows they have something great to talk about.

There are about a million reasons why you may not consider yourself a speaker. We are here to prove you wrong. If all you have is a gut feeling that you should be on stage, we are here to help you develop or hone the skills you think you lack to deliver a great presentation.

We are committed to fulfilling our mission as a community event. We are all community people and we want to be as close to you as possible. We will try to be supportive and helpful and we will do our best to get back to you with valuable feedback from the CFP process. In case you wish to talk with someone from the team, do not hesitate to write an email at info@jsday.ie (just please don't use this email to submit a proposal). Good luck!

Video Recordings

We plan to record and publish all talks in our youtube channel for free, along with a recording of the slide deck, live demo, and any on-presenter-screen activity. We do this for the benefit of the larger JavaScript community and those who couldn't make it to the conference. We hope you agree with us, but if you are uncomfortable with this in any way, let us know and we will work things out. Note that we disabled comments on our published videos by default.

Finally, since you retain full ownership of your slides and recording, we'd like to ask you to make your materials and recording available under a Creative Commons (we default to non-commercial reuse) or other open source license.

Code of conduct

Our Code of conduct aims to create a safe and welcoming space for our community members, and to protect every attendee, staff member and speaker from harassment. We thus need you to read, understand, and comply with our code of conduct.
