One of the many great things happening this year at BSides Las Vegas is the New Speaker Mentor program. The goal is to encourage new speakers to participate in the community, this will help both the new speakers and the community. It can be difficult to give that first talk, that’s why a team of mentors will work with the new speakers to hone their presentation and provide support for them. Full details are available at the Mentorship Program page and information on submitting a talk to this (or any track at BSides LV0 are at the CFP page.
If you are interested in participating, or know someone who might be, please join us for this new program. And do it soon, the CFP for all tracks closes June 15.
