What is Speakerfight?

Speakerfight is an arena where the speakers can fight each other and the people choose who wins.

Why the Speakerfight was created?

When the people from Grupy-RN was making a regional edition of the RuPy, in 2014, we were tired of using Google forms or Call4Paperz to manage that, so Luan Fonseca took some time and build an MVP version to make the RuPy call for papers happen in the Speakerfight.

How the Speakerfight is made?

We have a repository on the Github with some open issues labeled with different levels of dificulty, besides we are open enough to accept any kind of contribution, We also have an Chat in Gitter, anyone can reach us out in there and talk freely about almost anything. Read our Contributing section on the Github to know more details.

How works the voting system?

The system is composed by 5 options of vote:
