FAQ: Speaking at DevSecCon

What do you pay speakers?

DevSecCon does not pay speakers. In specific cases we might be able to help with travel expenses but most of our speakers cover their own cost and make their own travel arrangements. Other benefits include pre-conference coaching, special speaker get-togethers for networking, conference goodie bag and the possibility to stay for the whole conference (for free of course) to soak up the other sessions and connect with attendees. We are committed to creating an experience that’s fulfilling and beneficial on all sides.

Do I pick the time and location for my speaking session or will it be assigned to me?

The DevSecCon organisers will assign you a time, date and location for your session and will notify you once all assignments have been determined. But if you have a special preference for the timing of your sessions you can let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

Is there a guarantee on how many people will attend my session?

DevSecCon cannot guarantee a specific number of attendees. You can help increase attendance by promoting your session to your network using emails, tweets, and other social media channels.

When should the speaker arrive at the presentation room?

We recommend that the speaker arrives at the conference venue at least 1-2 hours before the assigned speaking slots and makes him or herself know to the conference organisers. Speakers should arrive in the presentation room 15-30 minutes early to set up the presentation and ensure the room is set as required.

Code of conduct

All speakers must adhere to the DevSecCon code of conduct.

DevSecCon is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the discretion of the conference organisers.

Any form of written, social media, or verbal communication that can be offensive or harassing to any attendee, speaker or staff is not allowed at DevSecCon. Please inform a DevSecCon staff member if you feel a violation has taken place and the management team will address the situation. Conference staff can be identified by t-shirts and/or special badges. Participants asked to stop any harassing behaviour are expected to comply immediately. We expect participants to follow these rules at all conference venues and conference-related social events.
