OSCON – Call for participation

Open Source Convention is accepting proposals for the its next conference, scheduled to 24-28 July. There is a Database track, so if you think you have something good to show about Firebird, send your proposal using this link.

Here is part of a post from Josh Berkus:

As last year, me, Elein, Trudy and Arjen are the OSCON committee members specifically from the database community. We will be pursuing database talks in some specific in-demand areas.

UNLIKE prior years, this year we are seeking 45-min database sessions which emphasize practical utility and novel technology which will be directly useful to non-DBAs. In other words, case studies and
techniques which are targeted at the Perl, Ruby, Java, PHP, Web2.0 or other non-DBA programming communities, particularly complete implementations and case studies showing full applications and/or client code techniques are preferred.

This is part of a change in the OSCON program in which a session can be in multiple tracks, and there are no specific track quotas. It’s also a response to the legendarily low attendence of database talks in the past.

If you want to discuss potential submissions, contact any one of the committee members and we can give you feedback. Please share your ideas with us soon — the deadline is February 13th!
