Format of Next.js Conf Presentations

After the opening Keynote, pre-recorded video presentations from Next.js Community members and sponsors will be premiered across multiple stages, where tens of thousands will watch! Presentations will vary in length, from 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the topic and speaker's preferences.

Goals for Next.js Community Speakers

  1. High Quality → Next.js Conf is for creating content that the Next.js Community will enjoy and learn from for years to come. Make your submission about a problem that you or your team have solved using Next.js.
  2. DX & UX Focused → The Next.js Community loves great developer experience (DX) and user experience (UX). Whatever your topic, relate some part of it to how Next.js addresses improving DX and/or UX.
  3. Community Oriented → This is our moment to share and celebrate the best and brightest ideas from the Next.js Community.

How to Quickly Submit your Proposal

Instead of requiring a lengthy written submission, we're simplifying the process to require one video and one email. Follow these steps:

  1. Record a Video
    1. Tell a story about a problem that you or your team solved using Next.js.
    2. Length: 60-120 seconds long - that's shorter than you think!
    3. Doesn't have to be polished or scripted. We just want to hear your story.
    4. Format: You can record with your webcam or horizontally on a phone or camera, but make sure your voice is clearly audible.
    5. [optional] Start your video with "I love Next.js!" followed by the rest of your story. It's cheesy, but we think the result will be incredible.
  2. Send your Video
    1. Deadline: September 24, 2021 at 11:45 p.m. PST.
    2. Upload your file to this Dropbox folder.
      • Must be .mp4 (or .mov).
      • Name the file {email.at.domain}.mp4
        • e.g. lee.at.example.com.mp4
  3. Wait for Approval →
    1. We'll approve or decline every submission by September 29.
    2. Approval will be based on the following criteria:
      • Did you follow the steps in "Record a Video"?
      • Is your story DX & UX focused? How has Next.js changed how you or your team works, or how did Next.js help improve your site's performance and delight your users.
