Global CFP Day | Partner Event

Location visible to members

Have you always wanted to become a tech conference speaker? Are you under-represented at tech conferences? We want to help you prepare your very first talk proposal and share your own individual perspective at technology conferences. These workshops have no specific language, framework or process as a focus. Even if your talk isn’t strictly technical, we want to hear from you too! In short, if there is something that you want to shout to the world we're here to help you get there regardless of the boundaries of technology or communities. ======================================================================= RSVP here https://ti.to/gdcfp-los-angeles/gdcfp-los-angeles-2019/en/with/5z6wto-bhli ======================================================================= What is Global Diversity CFP (Call For Papers) day? https://www.globaldiversitycfpday.com/ Our workshop - like all GDCFP Day events - follows this Code of Conduct: https://www.globaldiversitycfpday.com/code-of-conduct Please note event is Sunday, March 3rd (NOT Saturday) Parking The closest public parking is at 5th & Arizona and is $2.50 per hour.
