linux.conf.au January 2009 Developer Business (DevBiz) Mini-Conf
This is the first year for the DevBiz mini-conf. It will be held for a full day on Monday January 19, 2009, just before the start of the linux.conf.au conference.
The "Business of Open Source miniconf - DevBiz" is to share and learn about non-coding business aspects of making an open source project successful. Success, of course, depends on each project goals but the DevBiz mini-conf aims to provide practical learning and a helpful dialog to anyone working in open source.
Presentation submitters should feel free to suggest their own topics. Here is a list of potentially interesting subjects (in no particular order):
We hope to receive proposals for:
If you want to be on a panel, suggest what the panel would be on and I'll help get panelists.
To submit a proposal, or get more information, please contact Bob Gobeille email@example.com with "LCA DevBiz" in the subject line. Bob is a really nice guy. Feel free to bounce ideas off of him if you wish. Also let him (ok, me) know if your talk can be recorded and posted on-line.
Please note that in order to give a presentation or attend the mini-conf, you must either sign up for the main linux.conf.au conference, or if you are only attending for the mini-conf you need to sign up for a speaker pass. Travel and registration reimbursement is not available through LCA or the mini-conf. The location is wonderful though. Perhaps you should plan a family vacation around this beautiful area.
