Wow! Super! Thanks for sharing your experiences @tracypholmes and @pachicodes!
I have a question, which templates do you recommend to save it and use @tracypholmes ? (I didnt get the name) Thanks in advance :)

Thank you and it was no problem! So, to answer your question:

People tend to fuss about Linux Foundation (KubeCon, etc.) CFPs because they ask a LOT of questions, and you can't reuse previous submissions like you can in Sessionize. That said, I like the thoroughness of the application because once you've filled it out, you pretty much have all the information you need to submit to other conferences. I have a gist for the template, which I'll share here. But now that I'm going through it, I think I'll also try to also write a blog post about it which goes through the sections a bit more (if you think it would be worth it?)

Thank you so much for such a detailed answer! Already checked your gist and it's a very useful resource! I feel that a blog post would be very helpful for people that want to start or improve their submission to conferences yes :)
