If you're already aware of this CFP, just move on to the next message,
otherwise...

If you want to see Perl talks at OSCON, one of the best ways to do it is by
giving one yourself.  Now is the time to start working on your proposal and
talk content.  Don't leave it for the last minute.

You may have noticed a declining number of Perl talks at OSCON -- this is
pretty much entirely due to not very many talks being proposed.

See below for submission details.

OSCON 2014 Call for Participation

*Call closes 11:59pm 01/30/2014 PST.*

SUBMIT A PROPOSAL NOW <http://www.oscon.com/oscon2014/user/proposal/new/308=
>

OSCON will be celebrating its 16th year of celebrating, explaining, and
demonstrating the power of open source technologies. We would love to have
you join us as we bring together a large community of learners and
contributors.

Please submit original session and tutorial ideas that share your
technology passions. Proposals should include as much detail about the
topic and format for the presentation as possible. Detail matters: our
volunteer reviewers aren=92t mind readers. Vague proposals face an uphill
climb.
If you are one or more of the following:

   - Developer or programmer
   - Systems administrator
   - Hacker or geek
   - Enterprise developer or manager
   - IT manager, CxO, or entrepreneur
   - Trainer or educator
   - Open source enthusiast or activist

We invite you to submit a proposal to lead sessions or tutorials at OSCON
2014.
Topics we=92re seeking for the 2014 program include:

   - Best practices for building businesses around open source
   - User experience innovations
   - Open models for cloud computing and distributed services
   - Security and privacy in a world of flowing data
   - Cultural changes driven by ubiquitous computing and networking
   - Scaling up and scaling down
   - Geek lifestyle=97hacking, quantified self, inbox zero, maker culture
   - Bringing open source to new communities
   - Open web, open standards, open data, open, open, open!

2014 Tracks

   - Community

   - Java and JVM languages
   - Javascript / HTML5 / Web
   - Perl
   - PHP

You=92ll be asked to include the following information for your proposal:

   - Proposed title
   - Overview and extended descriptions of the presentation: main idea, sub
   topics, conclusion
   - Suggested track
   - Speaker(s): expertise and summary biography
   - Suggested tags

Proposals will be considered for the following types of presentations:

   - 3-hour tutorials
   - 40-minute presentations, discussions, or panels

Limited speaking opportunities are also available through conference
sponsorship. Contact Sharon Cordesse at (707) 827-7065 or
scordesse@oreilly.com for more information.
Some tips for writing a good proposal for a good talk:

   - Help us understand why your presentation is the right one for OSCON.
   - Keep the audience in mind: they=92re technical, professional, and
   already pretty smart. They also will smell a marketing pitch.
   - Clearly identify the level of the talk and why people will want to
   attend: is it for beginners to the topic, or for gurus? Is this a trendi=
ng
   topic, or an installation tutorial?
   - Give it a simple and straightforward title or name: fancy and clever
   titles or descriptions make it harder for people (committee and attendee=
s)
   to figure out what you=92re really talking about.
   - Limit the scope of the talk: in 40 minutes, expect to pick a useful
   aspect of a topic; a particular technique; or walk through a simple prog=
ram.
   - Pages of code are unreadable: mere mortals can deal with code a line
   at a time.
   - Be authentic! Your peers need original presentation ideas that focus
   real-world scenarios, relevant examples, and knowledge transfer.
   - If you are proposing a panel, tell us who else would be on it.
   - Include people we don=92t see often enough at tech conferences: Does
   your presentation have the participation of a woman, person of color, or
   member of another group often underrepresented at tech conferences?
   Diversity <http://oreilly.com/conferences/diversity.html> is one of the
   factors we seriously consider when reviewing proposals as we seek to
   broaden our speaker roster.
   - Above all else, present something relevant. One of your challenges as
   a proposer is to demonstrate that you understand that attendees might ne=
ed
   an extra reason to pay attention to something that they might otherwise
   think of as =93settled.=94
