Most conference proposals are too boring, even when the speakers and topics are
great. This is a pity. I think something about the process of submitting to a
CfP sets a trap for most speakers. This post is my advice for avoiding that
TL;DR: Your proposal should focus on your story about what you’ve done personally
and what you’ve learned. Your story, not the topic. And, don’t tell us anything
about the importance of the topic or how high the stakes are.
