Thanks for your interest in speaking at Chicago Roboto! We’re a humble community gathering (in an awesome city) committed to keeping developers up to date on the latest and greatest in Android.
To do that, we need your help, ideas, skills, and passion!
If you are working in Android and have a topic the community can benefit from — developing/designing apps, building our community, building Android hardware or working with embedded devices, or using Android in education and research — we’d love for you to consider submitting a proposal to share and teach with the Android community.
Android is such a ubiquitous platform that almost any topic can make for a great talk! We’re hoping to have three types of talks to cover a wide range of topics and skill levels.
Type 1: For budding Android developers (45 minutes)
We’ll feature a special track for Android developers who are just starting out, and we are looking for speakers to teach sessions targeted at the core skills of Android development. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to be an expert to teach —fundamental classes like these it is often best to hear from someone who has just learned it.
Some topics that might be great for these beginner sessions:
Remember, these are just possible suggestions and not an all-encompassing list. If you’ve got an idea for a good beginner talk, please submit a proposal!
Type 2: For experienced Android developers & the broader community (45 minutes)
We want to make sure we take care of experienced developers and our community in general as well. If you’ve tackled a complex problem lately, please share!
Some topics that might be great for these sessions:
We’d also like to encourage proposals that focus on our community as a whole. Things like:

Type 3: Showcase/highlights (20 minutes)
For our 20 minute sessions, we’re envisioning topics like:
We want everyone to be able to come and speak, regardless of their financial situation. However, it would help us tremendously if you or your company can cover any costs. We’re happy to list you or your employer as a sponsor to recognize your contribution.
Please let us know in your submission if that’s possible. Companies who cover speaker travel will be listed as sponsors.
For speakers we’ll provide:
