How do you find and apply to speak at conferences?

Howdy y’all, I’m wondering how y’all find out about conferences you’d like to attend. And more specifically, how would you find ones that are accepting speaker proposals.

I have a handful of topics I’ve given talks about, but am struggling to find conferences that are looking for speakers or soliciting CFPs (call for proposals).

For conference goers and speakers alike, how do you find them?

I tend to find CFPs for the conferences I'm interested in by following companies/projects I like on Twitter or their email lists.

These are also good resources

Offhand, I know that Codeland and Twilio's SIGNAL (CFP closes tomorrow) have their CFPs open right now

Did you mean events about frontend? There're some events about Frontend tulu.la/events/?about=frontend or about JavaScript tulu.la/events/?about=JavaScript or UI/UX tulu.la/events/?about=UI%2FUX
