CrystalConf 2023: CFP now open

The date for the much awaited Crystal Conference has been set to 23rd and 24th October 2023 with its chosen location to be Berlin, Germany. With a global community and contributions from people worldwide, Crystal has achieved a strong space in the programming world.

Details to the audience registration for the conference will follow soon.

We’re working on the same, the link will be live soon!



Preparing to Submit your Proposal

The CFP for CrystalConf 2023 is live and is seeing proposals. We hope you will take a minute to read the following guidelines that we have put together to help you make the best submission possible, even if it is not our purpose to provide you explicit directions on how to construct your proposal. Here are three things you should think about before submitting your proposal to get you started:

  1. What do you want the audience to take away from your presentation?
  2. What benefits do you hope your presentation will provide the audience?
  3. How would your presentation improve the Crystal programming environment?

There are many effective approaches to discuss projects and technologies without highlighting company-specific initiatives. When crafting your proposal, keep in mind the points we discussed above, and consider how to keep attendees interested while still allowing you to share your experiences, inform the public about a problem, or pique interest in a project.

Additional Questions? New to submitting?

We actively encourage first-time presenters to submit talks for our events because conferences are a great way to meet people in the community and share your thoughts and efforts. Contact us if you have any questions concerning your abstract; we would be pleased to help you with your proposal.
