    G'day folks,

    This is a quick note to let you know that registrations for the Australian
    Open Source Developers' Conference are now open. This conference will be
    run on the 1st - 3rd of December 2004 at Monash University, Caulfield in
    Melbourne, Australia.

    The cost is AUD $230 and if you register before 31st October 2004, you will
    receive a conference t-shirt and financial discount. The t-shirts look
    fantastic :)

    You can register at http://www.osdc.com.au/

    OSDC is a grassroots-style conference designed by developers for developers,
    covering open source languages, tools, libraries, operating systems,
    licences and business models. We're booking 3 lecture rooms each day for
    the 3 days and every single slot is filled with a talk. There are 60
    different talks by 45 different speakers, not including the keynotes.

    Talks topics range from dealing with hardware in Perl, to designing cochlear
    implants with Python, to writing large-scale PHP. We also have talks on
    the Firebird Database, Mozilla XUL, Lego Micromouse (and maze solving),
    MySQL, CVS, Make, DocBook and writing games with Javascript.

    You can find the list of speakers and talk titles at http://www.osdc.com.au
    papers/index.html. Speaker names listed as "unavailable" means that that
    speaker opted to have their paper refereed. Their names will appear once
    the refereeing process is over.

    Because there are so many good talks, you can be certain that there will be
    something that interests you in every talk session. In our initial
    timetable, it was impossible to put the most interesting talks into
    sequential timeslots as we had too many "most interesting" talks for the
    time available. Each day will start with a 1.5 hour keynote by our
    excellent keynote speakers. These include Damian Conway, Nathan Torkington,
    Anthony Baxter, Luke Welling and Con Zymaris. The rest of the day will be
    filled with 5 hours of talks and plentiful food breaks.
    Our catering choices should result in you being extraordinarily well fed
    throughout the days of the conference.

    There will also be a key-signing, several BOFs (yet to be organised), lots
    of opportunities to socialise, a semi-formal dinner, a partners' programme
    and other usual conference stuff.

    If you have any other questions about what is happening, please don't
    hesitate to ask: mailto:eek:
