OSDC Proposal Submitted

Due to the "massive" response from my readers (thanks Richard) I went with WSGI and submitted a proposal. As of last night, it looks like they have 55 proposals of a wide and interesting range of topics. It would also appear there are more Python than Perl proposals, but I had my rose coloured glasses on, so I may be mistaken.

Note that none of those proposals are formally accepted.

Yes understand that the proposals have to go thru the acceptance process. But based on the proposal descriptions, whatever they pick will mean it will be worthwhile to attend.

And not many Java ones.

If this year's OSDC Python presentations are only half as good as last year's, it will still be an excellent conference.
There were so many good presentations last year, and the paper proposals for this year lookg good... I think the Pointer Sisters summed it up best when they sang "I'm so excited"!

Mark, where did you get to see the list of submitted proposals? A quick swing through the web site didn't reveal anything.

In answer to Andy's question and so that Common Ground who have provided their conference publishing software to handle the OSDC proposals do not get bombarded with hits, only people who have submitted proposals will be able to see the full list. It is a simple case of using the url you were sent confirming your proposal and dropping the proposal number.

Hopefully sharing this knowledge will not have a negative impact when my proposal is being considered.

Also great to see how Common Ground are using Zope for the system.
