Portland, Oregon 

Here's your chance to present at OSCON 2012
Speaker proposals due January 12, 2012

Once a year, open source practitioners, advocates, and communities
gather at OSCON to learn and connect, and consider the state of open
source. It's big--the 18 tracks cover a panoply of open source
technologies and themes. Roughly 400 people will be presenting--should
you be one of them?

If you have a new idea, a better way to do something, an interesting
and instructive case study (battle scars optional), or the desire to
pass on your hard-won knowledge, submit a proposal to lead conference
sessions or tutorials at OSCON 2012. Speaking at the event is a great
way to share what you know with your peers, while getting projects,
ideas, and your company in front of a savvy and connected audience.

Topics We're Interested In 
(but feel free to surprise us with something not on the list):

- The Startup Stack--open source infrastructure that entrepreneurs
  choose to power their startups.
- Open source and user experience--moving from strange bedfellows to soulmates
- Open source in healthcare, government, and education
- Best practices for building a business around open source
- Leadership in the changing Open Source culture
- Open web, open standards, open data
- Emerging languages--have a good story about why we need Yet Another
- Open source in mobile devices
- Geek lifestyle--hacking, quantified self, inbox zero, maker culture
- Data and Java--those who attended last year's OSCON Data and OSCON
  Java told us that they wanted to be part of the "main"?? OSCON, so
  we're bringing Data and Java back into the fold in 2012.

Read submissions guidelines and submit your proposal.

OSCON Tracks:
- The business of open source
- Cloud computing
- Databases and datastores
- Education
- Emerging languages
- Geek lifestyle
- Healthcare
- Java and JVM languages
- Javascript / HTML5
- Mobile platforms
- Open hardware
- Open source community
- Operations and systems administration
- Programming
- Perl
- Python
- Ruby
- Tools and techniques

We're looking forward to seeing your session and tutorial ideas--and
we hope you're already making plans to join us in Portland this July.
