Free Java @ FOSDEM 2011 – CFP extended to 17 December!
We already have some awesome proposals… but we want MORE!
So we’re giving you a little more time to get those talk proposals in.
We have reserved some slots for quick lightning talks (5 min), these can be done spontaneously at the event, but please do let us know if you are attending and will likely want to do one, even if you are not 100% sure yet. That way we can better schedule the time slots.
If you don’t want to give a talk, but want to support speakers attending the Free Java devroom at FOSDEM 2011, please see our sponsoring campaign: http://pledgie.com/campaigns/14110
