OSDC (Melbourne, Australia) open for registrations

Registrations for Australia’s second Open Source Developers’ Conference are now
open. Last year’s conference was a huge hit with 60 high quality talks running
in three streams over three days. If you were not able to join us last year make
sure you don’t miss out this year!

The conference is running from Monday 5th – Wednesday 7th December 2005.

If you register before Sunday 30th October you will receive a conference t-shirt
and a $50 discount.

You can register at

OSDC is a grass roots, YAPC-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 to hold a new set 60 different talks.

Talks topics range from the safety of Perl’s, to rapid game development
in Python, to using PHP for unorthodox applications, to utilizing Java’s Groovy
in your next application. We also have talks on conference skills, database
integration, digital forensics, Gumstix and Nagios. You can find the full list
of speakers and talk titles at

Because there are so many good talks, you can be certain that there will be
something that interests you in every talk session. Each day will start with a
keynote by our excellent keynote speakers. These include Damian Conway, Jonathan
Oxer, Richard Farnsworth (from the Australian Synchrotron) and Anthony Baxter.
The rest of the day will be filled with up to 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 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: Removed)

I hope to see you there!
