Frequently asked questions and answers.
During the conference day, there will be 15+ speakers giving 20-minute presentations each about various Swift topics such as Open-Source Swift, Server-Side Swift and Swift on Android, as well as using Swift for iOS, watchOS, and tvOS development, and any new platforms Apple will announce at their annual WWDC conference.

Prepare a talk that lasts 20 - 25 minutes.
In short, no - we only accept one talk proposal from each speaker candidate. One of our core values is finding highly valuable talks to be presented to our attendees. This means that we extensively vet each talk proposal. By setting this rule we would like to invite you to invest all you’ve got into your single proposal, and at the same time help us save some time in the selection process. In case you have many ideas and a hard time figuring out what would fit the Swift India Conf best, we invite you to reach out before you submit your talk. We would be happy to advise you on what will suit our audience better.
We believe that open space makes people more creative, so we are leaving the topic of the talk up to you. It is however important that your talk brings value to all groups of our attendees. This is a typical breakdown of our attendees. Developers - A developer who develops Apps for anyone of the Apple platform, it could be iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. 40 to 60% - Intermediate developers, 30% - Senior developers, 20% - Beginners or junior developers. In other words - this is a single-track conference, make your talk bring value to everyone. We suggest that your proposal follows the conference theme which is revolving around the intersection between iOS Application Development, Swift Programming Language, and new technologies introduced by Apple in previous years.
Swift India Conference doesn't support speakers financially. If it's a physical conference, we take the speakers to parties and road-trips. If the conference is online, we send cool goodies to speakers via courier.
