XP2016 is a not-for-profit conference - any surplus will be donated to our charity partner
Speak Easy is a voluntary programme designed to increase diversity and promote new voices, especially women's voices, at tech conferences through dedicated conference spots, mentoring and events. If you work in the tech industry and have great ideas and experience and a desire to speak for the first time at a conference, we'll match you up with an experienced speaker who can mentor you through the whole process: from developing your idea into a great proposal and developing a compelling presentation, to delivering your presentation with confidence to an engaged audience.
XP2016 has dedicated a track session for one new voice who comes through the Speak Easy program. Anyone registered on the SPEAK EASY SITE is eligible to propose, so do sign up now and let us know you want a Speak Easy mentor's help to prepare an XP2016 proposal.
We want the XP conference to be a welcoming event, where people meet in a friendly environment and engage in civil discussion and debate. Accordingly, we expect all participants to show respect and courtesy to other participants throughout the conference.
To make clear what is expected, we have written and are publishing this Code of Conduct.
