The LCA2010 Open Programming Languages Miniconf, to be held at 
Linux.conf.au 2010 in January 2010 (either on Monday 18th or Tuesday 
19th January), invites presentations about all programming languages 
with an Open Source implementation, such as Perl, Python, C, PHP and 
Ruby, amongst others.

Topics may include recent developments in open programming languages, 
interface design, portability and packaging, coding applications with 
cool new libraries and frameworks, and showing off the use of novel 
programming techniques; presentations may be proposed in a standard 
(25-minute) or long (45-minute) talk format.

Whilst most talks will be specific to a single language, the focus of 
this miniconf will be on sharing techniques, best practices and values 
amongst programmers of all open programming languages.

We will be accepting proposals effective immediately, and our CFP will 
close on Friday, September 25. Absolutely no extensions will be granted 
due to the tight timeline for LCA2010 programme publication.

To read the guidelines for presentations, and the submission process for 
proposals, please visit the CFP page on our website.
