OSCON 2006 Call for Participation

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Glenn Vanderburg, Jan 10, 2006.

  1. The call for participation for this year's O'Reilly Open Source
    Convention has been posted. It's included below, and you can find it
    online here:


    The conference is July 24-28, and the deadline for submissions is
    February 13. Early submissions help!

    In 2005, Ruby built huge momentum at OSCON; all of the Ruby tutorials
    and talks were packed, and many of the keynotes mentioned Ruby and
    Rails. This year we want to build on that momentum -- with lots of
    Rails goodness, of course, but also showcasing the many other cool
    things that people are doing with Ruby. Please submit your proposals
    for talks and tutorials.

    OSCON 2006: Opening Innovation

    Save the date for the 8th annual O'Reilly Open Source Convention,
    happening July 24-28, 2006 at the Oregon Convention Center in
    beautiful Portland, Oregon.

    The O'Reilly Open Source Convention is where coders, sysadmins,
    entrepreneurs, and business people working in free and open source
    software gather to share ideas, discover code, and find solutions. At
    OSCON 2005, more than 2,400 attendees took part in 241 sessions and
    tutorials across eleven technology tracks, learning about the newest
    features and versions from creators and experts. A record number of
    products launches and announcements were made, and sponsors and
    exhibitors from a wide range of companies filled the largest exhibit
    hall in OSCON's history. We anticipate that OSCON 2006 will be even
    more successful, and continue to be the place for the open source
    community to meet up, debate, make deals, and connect face to face.
    OSCON 2006 will take place at the Oregon Convention Center in
    Portland, Oregon July 24-28, 2006.
