DEADLINE EXTENDED! OutSystems Developer Conference: Call for Speakers

The Call for speakers is now closed!

We've extended the deadline to submit your pitch until Friday, June 25th. Take advantage of the extra time, and get your pitch in.

Hello! I’m excited to let you know that this year we’ll be bringing back the OutSystems Developer Conference (OSDC)! We’re bringing it back virtually in November.

We’re trying something a bit different this year. NextStep will be one day only with a focus on the “Business” audience, and OSDC will take place over the two days following NextStep and will be dedicated 100% to the dev community. 

Rather than trying to keep them all in one event, we wanted to bring the focus back to developers for two full days without other distractions! 

Event dates: 

NextStep Nov 16

OSDC Nov 17-18

Call for Speakers

With that in mind, we’ve just opened the call for speakers for OSDC!

We’d love for you to pitch, and invite your colleagues to pitch as well. We’re looking for in-depth technical sessions, and short “lightning round” high-level talks. Get all the details on the site. 

NOTE: The pitching process is different than last year, we’re using the Cvent platform and the speaker submission process is built in. I’d highly recommend reviewing the Speaker Submission Guide first to make it a bit easier.

Who can submit a talk? Anyone!

We don’t care about your job title or even years of experience. We are committed to providing the developer community with actionable insights and tools, unique experiences, and diverse perspectives.

We encourage people from groups traditionally underrepresented in technology to apply. All speakers will find a supportive environment to help them prepare for their talk, whether it’s your first technical talk, or your 100th!

Please let me know if you have any questions about pitching!

Thanks for sharing!

TWO MORE DAYS to get your speaker pitches in! Don't wait and then regret not submitting something later. :)

WOW! With 183 talks submitted, the call for speakers is now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted. Our team has a lot of work to do now as we review every submission. We'll start contacting speakers next week, and everyone who applied will get a response one way or the other.


Amazing numbers, Jen. This is a real wow. 

It is going to be a tough call to choose the top N submissions. Good luck with the reviews. Looking forward to seeing the list of speaking sessions.

Has the date for notification of selection further extended?

Great ,Waiting for this event  

The final decision over the talk sessions was expected to be out by July 30, 2021. I might have missed the communication, but does anyone know if the deadline has been further extended?

Hey Swatantra! (haha we're just having conversations all over the place today!)

It looks like it will take us until mid-week next week to get the final selections out. With two days, and three time zones, each with unique agendas, it is taking much longer than we had imagined!



:D just trying to get attention ;-)

Thank you for the update. I got a response from Charlene mentioning the same. Gonna hold my horse!
