Submit your OSCON proposals this week
OSCON Call for Participation ends a bit earlier this year. You have until 11:59PM PST on January 12 to get your proposal in.
I have some advice I've given in previous years that's still good this year:
We're always interested in new subjects and new speakers. If you're a bit nervous about giving a talk at OSCON, you can try out a talk at YAPC::NA in Madison, a month before.
Besides the usual talks, I'd like some people to submit talks for these ideas:
- Setting up your own CPAN Testers
- Writing web clients with Mojolicious
- Creating Perl-based SDL games
- Integrating Spidermonkey and Perl
- Creating single file Perl applications
- Analyzing big data with PDL
- What's new in Test::Builder 2
- New features in Perl 5.16
- MetaCPAN's open data and APIs
- Perl bought me my house
- Running my personal weather station with Perl
- Hacking my Prius with Perl
- Managing CPAN installations with Git
- Aggregating Geo, Weather, and pet ownership data using Perl
- Exploring Recovery.gov with Perl
- Benchmarking applications across multiple perl binaries
- I know what Perl is, but I really want to talk about Oscar Wilde (Stephen Fry only please)
If you won't be able to give a talk but have an idea that might motivate someone else, leave a comment.
