+
Due to the shortened timeframe for putting the programme together, we'll be holding an open-ended call for proposals. Submissions are now open, and will remain open until we've filled the programme.
+
 
+
We're looking for proposals for 25-minute talks, on topics that are of interest to developers who use open source tools and languages. We're welcoming to new presenters, and seasoned performers alike.

+
For ideas of what we've accepted in the past, see our programmes from [https://lca2013.linux.org.au:8443/wiki/Miniconfs/OpenProgramming LCA2013] and [http://lca2012.linux.org.au/wiki/index.php/Miniconfs/OpenProgramming LCA2012]. We'll still accept talks along any developer-related topic, even if it's not along the lines of our past talks.

Note that presenters at the miniconf will need to be registered delegates to Linux.conf.au 2014. We have access to a limited number of Monday & Tuesday tickets for accepted speakers if they can't attend the whole conference.
