[erlang-questions] Last call for OSCON proposals. January 30 is almost here.

Hi All,

if any of you are thinking of presenting at a non Erlang conference this 
year, I would warmly suggest OSCON, in Portland this July. Thousands of 
delegates from all over the world,  over a dozen parallel tracks, lots 
of talk about open source, but not enough on functional programming. 
This will hopefully change. News for this year is that one of the 
co-chairs is Simon St. Laurent, senior editor at O'Reilly and author of 
Introducing Erlang. I'm on the program committee as well. Needless to 
say that we want to see Erlang and Elixir represented in force, with 
case studies, intros, tutorials and open source libraries.

If we get a strong Erlang program, we will schedule an Erlang Factory 
Lite in conjunction with OSCON. But most important right now is to get 
the proposals in by January 30th. If you have any questions, ask me or 
email the list.

Hello Francesco,

Although OSCON 2014 
is still months away, there's an important OSCON deadline coming up 
fast. January 30 is the deadline for submitting your proposal to speak.

We encourage you to submit a proposal to share your open source 
knowledge and experiences with others. You don't need to be a guru or 
experienced speaker. We're looking for interesting stories told in 
interesting ways, fascinating demos, and provocative ideas.

In addition to looking at open source tools and technologies---that is, 
all the parts of the open source stack---this year we'll discuss open 
source in a broader context: where it fits in today's workplace, "open" 
as a guiding philosophy, open hardware, and security and open source 
code. Find the full details here 
<http://post.oreilly.com/rd/9z1zjgda3o5kla0d0t8aavu3su767ohegi5bv7to860>, including 
how to write a winning proposal. You may also want to read Simon St. 
Laurent's post on Proposing a Compelling OSCON Talk 
for tips on how to intrigue proposal reviewers and attendees alike.

Speaking at OSCON is a rewarding experience and a great way to share 
with the open source community. Carve out some time right now to get 
your proposal in; you'll be glad you did. We can't guarantee that you'll 
be an open source superstar once you speak, but you'll be well on your way.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Simon St. Laurent, Matthew McCullough, and Sarah Novotny
OSCON Program Chairs
