I’m very pleased to announce that the LCA2011 organisers have accepted my proposal for the Open Programming Miniconf to be run at Linux.conf.au in Brisbane in January.  This is a new, improved, shorter-titled successor to the wildly successful Open Programming Languages Miniconf that was held in Wellington earlier this year.

From the proposal:

The Linux.conf.au Open Programming Miniconf is a single-day mini-conference about application development with Open Source tools.

Featuring talks on a wide range of topics and programming languages, this miniconf aims to bring together open source developers with presentations that share techniques, best practices and values amongst programmers of all open programming languages. OPM2011 will be held at Linux.conf.au 2011, at the QUT Gardens Point Campus in Brisbane in January.

Whilst the miniconf is yet to be officially announced, the proposal submission system is online at the miniconf website.  I look forward to seeing some awesome presentation proposals coming through in the coming weeks!
