Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We are excited to organize our first ever Virtual DevConf.US with you!

General Questions
This year, all sessions will be pre-recorded. If your submission is chosen, you'll be asked to confirm your acceptance. Once you confirm your acceptance, you are expected to submit a video recording of your session by July 27.

We are still working out some details, but our plan is for each speaker to be available for Q&A at the end of their scheduled session time.
We are planning to include a day of live, virtual workshops on 23 September 2020. You'll notice the CfP for workshops closes earlier than sessions, on 8 July 2020. This is to allow plenty of time to work out the logistics of the workshops.
Only confirm your acceptance for the sessions you will submit videos for. There is a maximum of 3 videos allowed per speaker. Once you confirm, we will expect to receive your video by July 27.
Yes, please indicate on the CfP submission if you'll be co-presenting. If you'd like to add a co-speaker to a submission or an accepted session, no worries! Please email us at with your update.
Schedule / CfP Questions
We hope to release the schedule around August 17, 2020.

We are planning to host workshops on 23 September 2020, then sessions on 24 September and end on 25 September. These dates may change slightly, so do watch for the final schedule.
We receive a large number of high quality submissions. With the pivot to virtual this year, we have already sent out a first round of acceptance notifications. We expect to send out acceptances throughout the open CfP, to allow for as much time as possible for our presenters to confirm and prepare their videos by July 27.
Our track teams will review your video submissions as they come in. We may, on a case-by-case basis, ask for you to update your video if we find a problem (technical or otherwise). We will provide guidelines for how to record and submit your video, we'll be adding information to this site in the days ahead.
Registration Questions
Admission to DevConf.US is free and only requires that you register. Registration details should be available around August 17, 2020.
We use registration to manage several logistics issues around DevConf.US. We've never planned a virtual conference before!!

We want to ensure we've chosen the right platform for our sessions, chats, booths, and workshops based on the registration numbers.
Speaker Questions
We will be publishing our schedule there and having your preferred email address for that service lets us give you some editing rights for your session. Some speakers may use a different address for so we want to collect that from them. If you don’t have a preference or don’t have one already, just provide any email address you read and we will do the rest.
We're excited for our first Virtual DevConf.US. We hope you'll be patient with us as we work out the details, together. Please email us at with any other questions and especially any ideas you have!
Diversity & Inclusion Questions
In past years, we've offered diversity scholarships and coaching for new speakers. We'll be offering programs for our virtual event, also. We will pair coaches with new speakers to help with presentation content as well as video production. This option will be available on the acceptance notification. More details on this and other efforts will be added to our site in the near future.
