Call for Presenters

Do you want to speak at Code Camp Wellington 2019?
Do you know someone who should be speaking?

Our call for presenters is open now - closing date is Friday 1st March.

Submit Your Talk Idea

Open to You

Everyone is welcome to enter our submission process, regardless of experience level, technology stack, or demographics.

Encourage Someone

Do you know someone with passion for what they're doing with technology? Encourage them to consider speaking.

What to speak about?

Your favourite tech, core tech skills, team/people skills, or something cool. Check out our programmes from 2016, 2017 and 2018 for ideas.

Blind Evaluations

To counter the effects of unconscious bias, we're using an anonymised evaluation process to assess submissions.

Unsure about submitting?

Talk to us! Reach out to anyone from our organising team, we'd love to talk to you about what's possible.


First time presenting in front of a crowd? Nervous about how this works? Don't worry, we've got your back.

Still not sure what to talk about?

  • Evangelise your favourite technology platform or project, convincing us all to abandon the familiar and leap into the unknown.
  • Tell us your stories about the importance of courageous conversations and working well in a team.
  • Share the things you've learned in the last year - or the things you know now that you wish someone had told you sooner.
  • Show us something cool; in 2018, we learned about the guidance computer from the Apollo space program!
