What do you want to learn, 2021 edition?

Each year, we post a list of topics suggested by attendees on the previous year’s conference evaluations to help people who want to submit proposals. (Here are the last few versions: 2020, 2019, and 2018.)

Here’s this year’s list, including suggestions from both Virtual Fox Fest 2020 and the one-day Virtual Fox Fest May 2021, organized and de-duped. Of course, we also welcome topics not on this list and submitting a topic from this list doesn’t guarantee we’ll choose your session.
