I was on the verge to cutting the schedule down to one day, but thanks to some last-minute submissions, looks like we'll have enough content now to stretch across two days!

Thanks to everyone who submitted a proposal. I'll be in touch with each of you soon to discuss how to proceed. For everyone else, keep an eye on the DConf Online 2020 homepage for the schedule and other announcements.

Also, please don't forget, we could use your support! Help us out by purchasing some DConf 2020 swag from our online store:

We receive a commission on all the produces listed there. Plus, anything you by via the above link, whether it's our swag or something else, will send a little more our way in referral fees. All the proceeds go into our General Fund.

You can also help out by donating directly to the General Fund:

We'll be pulling a little from the General Fund to provide DConf Online 2020 t-shirts and coffee mugs to our speakers and prizes to random participants during the conference.

Yay! How close was it? Half the submissions in the last six hours?

Wow! A week ago you told that there was only one relatively late submission besides the keynotes. I thought that if all the other potential submissions missed the deadline, setting another deadline can hardly fare better. But it seems I was wrong. Congratulations for everyone who offered to talk!

Would you accept extra-late proposals?

And I'm positive there's more.

A couple during the extended week, a couple at the deadline, and a couple of people who had offered to do something if there weren't enough submissions.

Yes, with the understanding that priority goes to those who met the deadline. If I don't use it for the conference, I still need content with which to seed our new YouTube playlist.
