What is the Raku Conference
The Raku Conference 2021 is the first ever conference entirely dedicated to the 🦋 Raku programming language.
This year, it takes place online on August 6–8, 2021 (Friday–Sunday). In the future, we are planning to make it offline too. See the conference schedule.
Call for participation
Registration to the conference is open! To attend the event, please register at this very website. If you are already registered, log in to your account. You can find all information about your participation, your talks, etc. at your ’My Conference’ page.
Call for talks
Submit your talks! There are a few different formats that you can choose from. These include:
— 5-minute lightning talk
— 20-minute talk
— 40-minute talk
— 1.5-hour tutorial
— 4-hour class
— 8-hour workshop
It is up to you to decide if you want to pre-record a talk or if you want to give it live. In either case, make sure to appear online after your talk to have an online QA session.
Submit your talks before July 15. If you choose to pre-record it, we expect you to get a file before July 31.
All the talks will be later published on YouTube. As a speaker, you may refuse to do it, but why should you?

Sponsoring the event
