Workshop Information

This event is open to speakers and aspiring speakers of all experience levels. We'll help you take an idea and transform it into a technical talk with your unique perspective, helping you produce a talk title and abstract that will make your talk stand out from the crowd. By the end of the evening, our goal is for you to have all the artifacts and resources you'll need to submit a strong proposal.

Meet our facilitators! -

Henri Helvetica is a freelance developer who has turned his interests to a potpourri of performance engineering with pinches of user experience. He has found enjoyment attending and speaking at web conferences, right down to local meetups to be amongst the community he loves.
When not reading the deluge of daily research docs and case studies, or indiscriminately auditing sites in developer tools, Henri can be found contributing back to the community, co-programming meetups including the Toronto Web Performance Group or volunteering his time for lunch and learns at various bootcamps. Otherwise, with near certainty training and focusing on running the fastest 5k possible and longing the days he wasn't lactose intolerant.
