SIGNAL, Twilio’s annual customer and developer conference, is coming up May 20-21 at Moscone West in San Francisco, and our call for papers is open now through January 31, for people interested in doing a breakout session.
SIGNAL breakout sessions show the power of communications implemented into everyday human interactions. For two days, speakers will have the chance to present to an audience of developers and business leaders who are interested in improving customer engagement.
People attending are looking to learn how to move their skill set, business or community to the next level by using communications.
Interested in speaking? This is what you need to know:
We’re looking for three types of sessions:
- Talk (~30 min) Educate the audience on your experiences, best practices and thought leadership on how to communicate and engage with your customers.
- In-depth technical workshop (~60 min) Dig deep into developing and deploying communication APIs in your applications. Your audience wants to learn HOW to code. Expect your audience to have laptops open, IDE's and compilers.
- Discussion panel (~30 min) Organize 3-4 experts in support of a specific subject. It will be an “Ask-the-expert” format to take questions.
Content can range best practices, customer stories, technical talks, demos, how to’s, industry trends, and talk to the experts.
Topics we’re looking to cover include:
- Developing and deploying on Twilio
- Customer engagement
- Contact center
- Internet of Things
