Edit: This post was originally written just after the CFP closed in 2017. If you’re here from a CFP-related link, don’t assume this year’s CFP is closed. If you’re not sure, check the CFP system for the latest info.
Each year 44CON attracts between 100-200 submissions. Some of these are excellent talks, some are average and some are, well, let’s just say that some are below average. In this blog post I’ll try to go through what happens when the CFP closes and to help you answer the immortal question, “Has my talk been accepted/rejected?”
Along the way I’ll announce our first accepts, and most importantly explain the why of our CFP process.
