UPDATE: We'll be providing pizza!


Join Amy Unger (senior software engineer at Heroku) and Hilary Stohs-Krause (software developer at Ten Forward Consulting) for a hands-on talk about speaking at tech conferences, just in time to submit to the RubyConf 2018 call for proposals!

- Discuss the benefits of conference-speaking (and how to sell it to your supervisor!)
- Brainstorm topics you could speak about
- Learn how the submission process works
- Write a sample submission and receive feedback from fellow MadRailers


Arrive anytime between 5:30 and 6:00pm for socializing and networking; at 6pm, Amy and Hilary will give a 15- to 20-minute presentation, and the rest of the time will be for attendees to brainstorm topics and write submission drafts!


Madworks has an accessible entrance and giant parking lot, and is located a few blocks from West Transfer Point. They'll provide water, coffee and tea, and beer is available for $2.
