Following our belief that #LearningNeverStops, we continue our sequence of online conferences by organizing the 4th edition of CppEurope on 23rd of June.
As firm believers in continuous improvement, we are taking steps in overcoming the barriers that could restrict the learning process in this period. We plan to do this by going online and bringing you international speakers and top-notch practitioners in the comfort of your own office or home.
Ask the speakers is a concept meant to break the barriers of classical learning sessions. It’s a moment when participants can have a direct conversation with the speakers of their choice, asking the questions they have, without the pressure of speaking up in front of the whole audience.
Send your proposal to become a speaker at I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2019. This year we are interested in specific topics, and choosing one of them might get you closer to becoming a speaker.
To increase your chances to become accepted, here are some tips:
#1. Get into the attendees shoes
If you have a very clear idea of who your audience is going to be, make the exercise to think from their point of view. They choose to attend your session, and they expect the best value from their investment.
#2. Customize, customize, customize
Every audience is unique, so craft your proposal according to what you know about your audience and about the event. Try to bring an original approach for each session you submit.
#3. Pay attention to details
When you apply, make sure you have an excellent title, a clear description of what you want to present and a strong personal bio.
#4. Invest time in your application
Although it might seem at hand, making a proposal takes time. Make sure you follow the guidelines offered by the organizers and when in doubt, ask for more details. Make sure you offer the details requested in the application.
#5. And a little extra thing
You’ve seen the call, you got your information in order and you are pretty sure you want to make a submission.

A fishbowl conversation is a form of dialog that can be used when discussing topics within large groups. Fishbowl conversations are sometimes also used in participatory events such as unconferences. The advantage of fishbowl is that it allows the entire group to participate in a conversation. Several people can join the discussion.
How does it work?
Our goal, as always when offering learning and growth opportunities, is to create a great learning environment for you. You should expect an intense day, featuring:
- Practical talks from well known experts in C/C++
- Talks from local C/C++ practitioners who share their own experiences. Maybe even yourself?
- A dynamic panel discussion (fishbowl format) that will allow a free exchange of opinions inside the group
- And, let’s not forget, a time for networking where you can share experience with your peers.
