How to speak at tech conferences with Karl Hughes

Trick question of the week:
How do you go about speaking at tech conferences?

Speaking in conferences is an integral part of DevRel.


Because in DevRel, to build trust, you need to be helpful. When you stand in front of a crowd to show how people are solving problems, you are being helpful to developers.

This is one of the reasons why you should be speaking at conferences. There are a lot of benefits but there are also challenges. Where do you apply? How? How do you prepare?

In our latest episode, we welcome Karl Hughes to help us walk through the process of speaking at conferences: from finding CFPs to apply to, all the way to dealing with stage fright, right before you deliver your talk.

Ready to get up on that stage and leave everyone in awe? Listen to the episode and you will.

Karl Hughes is a hands-on technical leader dedicated to helping startups figure out teams and technology. He is the CTO of The Graide Network and helps tech conference speakers find speaking opportunities at CFP Land.
