G'day folks,

This is a quick note to let you know that 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 weren't able to join us last year  
make sure
you don't miss out this year!

If you register before EARLY BIRD DATE you will receive a conference
t-shirt and financial discount.

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

OSDC is a grass roots-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  
day for the 3 days to hold a new set 60 different talks.

Talks topics range from the safety Perl's Safe.pm, 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  
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: osdc-help at osdc.com.au
