Announcing the LCA2013 Open Programming Miniconf!

TL;DR — submit a proposal at before the first round closes on Monday 29 October 2012.


I’m pleased to announce that The Open Programming Miniconf — a fixture for application developers attending since 2010 — is returning as part of 2013, to be held in January at the Australian National University in Canberra. The Miniconf is an opportunity for presenters of all experience levels to share their experiences in in application development using free and open source development tools.

The 2013 Open Programming Miniconf invites proposals for 25-minute presentations on topics relating to the development of excellent Free and Open Source Software applications. In particular, the Miniconf invites presentations that focus on sharing techniques, best practices and values which are applicable to developers of all Open Source programming languages.

In the past, topics have included:

  • Recent developments in Open Source programming languages (“State of the language”-type talks)
  • Tools that support application development
  • Coding applications with cool new libraries, languages, and frameworks
  • Demonstrating the use of novel programming

If you want an idea of what sort of presentations we have included in the past, take a look at our past programmes:

To submit a proposal, visit and fill out the form as required. The CFP will remain open indefinitely, but the first round of acceptances will not be sent until Monday 29 October 2012.

OPM2013 is part of 2013, being held at the Australian National University, Canberra in January 2013. Further enquiries can be directed to Christopher Neugebauer via e-mail ( ) or via twitter ( @chrisjrn ).

One thought on “Announcing the LCA2013 Open Programming Miniconf!

  1. For those liars or fools claiming the Norway miscreant (the names of such vermin should never be spoken or even THOUGHT ever again!) was a Christian:He was by his own claims an atheist – but believed Europe was right and best as a Judeo-Christian society and that it is being destroyed by multiculturalism.He was 100% correct in this belief.This does not justify his actions – even a blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while – but neither do his actions render his beliefs any less correct!
