Announcing the LCA2013 Open Programming Miniconf!
TL;DR — submit a proposal at http://tinyurl.com/opm2013-cfp before the first round closes on Monday 29 October 2012.
I’m pleased to announce that The Open Programming Miniconf — a fixture for application developers attending Linux.conf.au since 2010 — is returning as part of Linux.conf.au 2013, to be held in January at the Australian National University in Canberra. The Miniconf is an opportunity for presenters of all experience levels to share their experiences in in application development using free and open source development tools.
The 2013 Open Programming Miniconf invites proposals for 25-minute presentations on topics relating to the development of excellent Free and Open Source Software applications. In particular, the Miniconf invites presentations that focus on sharing techniques, best practices and values which are applicable to developers of all Open Source programming languages.
In the past, topics have included:
- Recent developments in Open Source programming languages (“State of the language”-type talks)
- Tools that support application development
- Coding applications with cool new libraries, languages, and frameworks
- Demonstrating the use of novel programming
If you want an idea of what sort of presentations we have included in the past, take a look at our past programmes:
