=== linux.conf.au ===

As you have all undoubtedly already registered for linux.conf.au, you will be excited to know there is only a little over a month to go before it all comes together in Brisbane. Whilst the main conference programme was created months ago, some mini-confs are still looking for speakers. Please get in touch with a mini-conf organiser if you would like to speak at one.

The LCA team are also looking for more volunteers to join their team. If you’re in Brisbane at the right time and want to be part of linux.conf.au, please sign up to volunteer at http://lca2011.linux.org.au/register/volunteer

=== Drupal Down Under ===

If you’re in to Drupal, don’t miss the chance to meet and mix with the best and brightest from the Australian and New Zealand Drupal community and project founder Dries Buytaert. Drupal Down Under will run the weekend prior to LCA, also in Brisbane. The call for proposals is now open at http://drupaldownunder.org/  (Note: you must sign up and login before you can submit a proposal)
