Session submission has now closed. Thanks to everyone who submitted, voting and selection will begin this week and emails sent shortly after.

 

Session submission is open until 1st January at midday. We encourage everyone to submit a session if they have an idea, where possible we'll give help and advice and volunteers will be on hand all weekend. Session selection will take place the same week and be announced the following week.

Speaker Benefits

Each selected speaker will get a free ticket to attend DrupalCamp London. If you've already purchased a ticket prior to being selected we can refund it or you can donate it to someone else.

The session will be recorded (slides and audio only) and will appear on our Drupal Camp London YouTube channel.

Support

Where possible we'll provide as much help and support as our time and resources allow.

We can answer any questions you have about speaking and if you want some feedback on your presentation before submitting you can head over to helpmeabstract.com to get feedback from veteran open source speakers.

During the event we'll have a space where you can prepare yourself and volunteers will be on hand all weekend to help.

Format

Each session slot is 45 minutes, you can use as much or as little of this time as you wish but we recommend leaving ample time for questions and answers.

Each session will have a different track (listed below). Your talk doesn't have to be just abut Drupal, feel free to expand on open source, community, etc!

  • Coding and Development
  • Community & Business

  • Symfony
  • User Experience Design

Ryan Szrama

Ryan got his start in web development through an online sales company based in Louisville, KY. It was there that he nursed Ubercart through its infancy to its use on over 20,000 websites as the Project Lead and community face of the project.

In 2009, Ryan co-founded Commerce Guys and eventually led the development of Drupal Commerce for Drupal 7. He grew the new project from its first full release at DrupalCon London to its use today on over 60,000 websites.

As of February 2016, Ryan acquired control of Commerce Guys and assumed leadership of the business with his time split between managing the company and contributing to its various open source projects.

Chris Teitzel

Chris has been part of the Drupal community for 8 years and during that time has been fortunate enough to be involved in all aspects of the community. Originally part of the team supporting the Omega theme, he helped drive documentation and community support to lower the bar for theming in Drupal. He’s since been involved in projects spanning the globe working with all levels of business from top enterprises to startups building everything from bootstrapped humanitarian tools based on SMS to airline ticketing systems built in Drupal Commerce. In the recent years he has set his sights on security in Drupal and specifically around data privacy and security to again lower the bar for developers to adhere to best practices.
