Evangelizing Meteor externally

I’ll be blunt: We need to get more people speaking and presenting to the JavaScript community.

JS Nation is still accepting submissions for presentations for their June 2022 conference. If there’s anyone here who is preparing material for an upcoming Meteor meetup, or for Impact, please make a submission.

I also think a presentation from someone on the core team of what Meteor is and what’s been done lately, and why it still matters today even with the onslaught of other frameworks and trends is a good first step and a way to start priming the developer pipeline again. This has to be someone from Meteor Software to signal that there is unwavering commitment to the health of the framework from the core developer/sponsor/owner, and that Meteor still matters and stands out as a viable framework for building modern applications.

There are a lot of openings for speakers here. It would be a shame if Meteor did not take one or two of them.

My mistake. It looks like the CFP is closed,

However, we should keep our eyes out for these opportunities, and post them as they appear. Hopefully, this will create awareness of the events that are happening, and encourage members to get involved sharing what they know and have learned.

@alimgafar thanks a lot for this exhaustive info. Hopefully I can figure out something once I switch back full-time to Meteor.

Thanks so much for this list @alimgafar!

If someone is doing a presentation on any of these events, reach out to @kevintayong and we can try to provide some Meteor swags like mugs, and stickers. :slight_smile:
