May 14

If you're considering submitting a talk for DConf '23, stop considering and get to submitting! The deadline is May 31, AOE. If your talk is accepted, you'll be eligible for reimbursement for travel and lodging (for the five nights of the conference), and you don't have to pay registration. It's a great way to have a trip to London.

Everything you need to know to put a submission together is here:

Also, the last day for early-bird registration is June 14, AOE. Take advantage of the 15% discount and don't miss the deadline!

Students have a permanent rate of $120. This is a great opportunity if you're in the UK or continental Europe, where you can find good deals on train fares and budget airlines. There are several hostels in range of the venue if you're looking for cheaper lodging than the budget hotels we list on the website.

DConf is about more than the talks. It's also about the face-to-face interactions you have with people you've only known online, and some you've never interacted with at all. Last year, we took steps to increase those opportunities by scheduling shorter talks than in past editions. The longer breaks were great, and we plan to keep that up. The value in face-to-face discussions is something you just can't get from the forums or the monthly BeerConf.

Several members of the community have built up and strengthened bonds at DConf over the years, and we're always interested in getting to know more community members better than we can online. And over the years, several attendees have walked away with new jobs.

It's an experience you just don't forget, and you never know what opportunities might come of it.

See you in London!
