The time has come: notifications about classes selected for AU Las Vegas 2017 have been sent. If you submitted a proposal, you should have received an email telling you whether or not you’ve been invited to present. Congratulations to our selected speakers.
We want to say thank you to everyone who submitted proposals this year. AU is about you. It’s built on your knowledge, your ideas, your passion, your curiosity. We couldn’t do what we do without your constant drive to become better at what you do. We know it takes valuable time and attention to create a class proposal and we appreciate the energy you invested. It showed in the work. Picking the winners is a difficult task and we wish we had room for all the classes proposed.
If your proposal wasn’t selected this year, we hope you’ll submit again. We also encourage you to look for other opportunities to share your ideas and insights. That could mean submitting articles to industry publications, writing blogs about your work, speaking at other events, or simply participating constructively on social media. Those kinds of activities boost your profile among your peers and can make the difference in getting your AU proposal accepted in future years.
We also want to thank you for participating in our first-ever community voting effort. In all, more than 40,000 thumbs up were cast on submitted class proposals. Thanks for taking the time to let us know about the topics that moved you, the proposals that inspired you, and the technologies you want to see in action.
If you’re interested in getting a sneak peek at the classes coming to AU 2017, we’ve listed a few. Check ‘em out and get ready for Vegas in November.
