About KatieConf

KatieConf is a parody. Have you checked a calendar lately? There is no June 31st. Sorry. The town of Katherine does exist, though.

However, all the people featured in the KatieConf lineup are real. There are so many fantastic female technical presenters who just happened to be called Katie, or a variation thereupon. All the organisers listed have put in countless hours into organising and running usergroups, conferences, meetups, podcasts and more

If you are looking for speakers for your conference, why not ask one of the wonderful people featured here? They are all listed with their Twitter accounts, and a link to some of their prior talks.

Do you really need another conference lineup of all men? Or as many female speakers as speakers called Steve?
