What we’re looking for in a submission

Here’s what we’d like to see:

  • Showing and educating over telling or selling 
  • Super specific deep dives, practical examples, and case studies showing how you’ve failed, learned an important lesson, or been successful 
  • Interesting journeys — people learn best from captivating stories 
  • Solutions for real-world problems 

What we’ll reject in a submission

Here’s what we don’t want to see:

  • Sales pitches
  • Vague abstracts
  • Offensive material
  • Blatant inauthenticity or plagiarism
  • Anything incongruent with our Code of Conduct 

General tips

When structuring your talk, please keep these things in mind:

  • Unless you’re giving a workshop, please reserve Q&A for the breaks — it doesn’t translate well in video footage, and we won’t have a mic set up for audience members
  • We highly discourage live demos — things break, and you’ll want to spend your short, precious time on stage focusing on your message  

Diversity and inclusion

At Webflow we believe everyone should have the power to create for the web. No Code Conf is for people creating the future of the web, the future of design, and the future of software.

In order to achieve this mission, we want our events to represent everyone. We’d especially like to encourage people of color, women, veterans, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community to attend and apply to speak. 

If you have ideas around our efforts to create events that are diverse, inclusive, safe, and accessible, please share your feedback in the last section of the application. We’re always looking for ways to do better.

Apply to speak at No Code Conf.

Webflow events provide a safe and inclusive experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, religion (or lack thereof), or technology choices.
