I'm speaking at TechDays 2010 in Toronto. So are some other very good speakers. (Feel free to click the links on that page to other cities to see the equally good crop across the country.) Would you care to join us?

Seriously, Microsoft has an entire track in each city, ten hour-long talks and two half-hour ones, for Local Flavour. The most important criteria is that you want to talk on something you're passionate about. Seriously, this isn't "Introduction to Visual Studio 2010" or "What's New in C#" - instead it's something that is far more specific and personal. A technology or methodology that you use and care about. A story that will help other developers, or IT pros, or DBAs. Something important that won't be covered in the entire two-day conference unless you step forward now and offer to talk about it.

As John Bristowe puts it:

You need to get cracking on this to meet the submission deadlines. Download the application form from the Canadian Developer's Blog, and submit as many ideas as you have.  You don't have to have prior speaking experience, but if you do, be sure to mention it!

See you in the speaker room,
