BALLARAT, 31 August 2011
The excitement is growing around the lineup for January's Linux Conference Australia (LCA). Organisers have confirmed that the Open Programming Miniconf has been accepted from a strong array of contenders. Programming languages such as Python, PHP, Perl, Scala, Java, and Ruby among others feature heavily in many free and open source software (FOSS) projects. Related topics such as integrated development environments (IDE), testing and quality assurance will also be of interest to practitioners.
Open Programming Miniconf organiser Christopher Neugebauer was incredibly pleased with the news.
"Application developers are a huge part of the Free and Open Source Software community, and I'm looking forward to bringing an excellent day of developer topics to Ballarat in January."
This is the third year in a row the Open Programming Miniconf has been accepted, denoting the high quality of presentations it attracts.
Talks at the Open Programming Miniconf will be of a 20-25 minute duration. Those who want to submit proposals for presentations may do so at http://tinyurl.com/opm2012-proposal . There will also be an opportunity to present 5-minute lightning talks at the end of the miniconf. Talk acceptances will be finalised after Friday 7th October.
Miniconfs - miniature conferences - are community-organised sessions designed to bring together like-minded delegates with interests in a specific field. They are run within the framework of the broader event, and provide excellent opportunities for professional networking and developing presentation experience.
LCA will be held 16th-20th January 2012 in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia. Registrations will open mid-September.
