Speaking

Having spoken at many conferences and meetups, sharing my knowledge with development community is something I am hugely passionate about. If you’re running an event and would like me to speak, I have prepared some information for you.

As well as speaking at development conferences, I can (and indeed do) speak at private engagements for companies and their staff. If you are a company who would like a tech talk to be delivered on-site to a private audience, please do get in touch.

I've also put together a package of what organisers usually need for you to make our job a bit easier.

Request to Speak

I would absolutely love to speak at your conference! However, there are a few questions which if you answer, makes the whole process easier for both parties. If you could fire me an email answering as many of the below as possible, I’d be really grateful. If you don’t have answers to any of those just yet, please don’t worry, this is just a rough starting point, not a test. Please also remember that there is no right or wrong answer to any of these questions.

  • When and where is your conference? I've travelled 15,976 km to give a talk; I’m not afraid of distance.
  • How many attendees do you expect to have? Rough number or previous sizes are OK.
  • What kind of audience do you have? It helps to know what the audience will be like (e.g. mainly front-end developers, full-stack, etc.).
  • Which other speakers have you approached? It helps to be aware of any other speakers who run the risk of delivering similar talks.
  • How long does the talk need to be? Do you have a set talk duration? 30-45 minutes is usually ideal.
  • Do you have any specific AV limitations? I prefer to use headset or lapel microphone, and would definitely rather use my own laptop to present from.
  • Do you cover speaker expenses? Flights, hotels, train journeys, etc.
  • What kind of talk would you like? I usually give technical talks (Web technologies, performance, etc.), but am open to discussing other topics.
  • Do you require a brand new talk? Writing talks takes a lot of time and effort: forewarned is forearmed.
  • When can I start publicising your event? Do you want to keep the lineup quiet for a while, or can I add your event to my speaking list immediately?
  • How much does a ticket cost for attendees? I like to have a rough idea of the cost of the event if possible.
  • Do you plan to compensate speakers? It'd be great if you could compensate me for my time which helps me keep doing what I do. However, this is not a must.
  • Have you checked for a clash with my upcoming events? If your event is close to one of my upcoming events, and is not nearby, chances are I won't be able to commit. You can see my current schedule here.

What’s in It for You?

Apart from helping to promote and publicise the event, I will endeavour to make myself available to attendees for the entire duration of the event, try to attend all surrounding social activities, will deliver a quality talk of practical relevance, and hold myself to a high standard.
Sounds OK? Get in touch!

Bio

Although it doesn’t look like it, Yaser is an almond croissant addict cleverly disguised as a successful web developer. Since it was relatively clear early on that it would be slightly more than difficult to make a living out of thin air, he’s focused his energy on the web, which happily has proven itself to be a wonderful decision.
