I'm pleased to announce that The Open Programming Miniconf, a fixture
for application developers attending Linux.conf.au since 2010 is
returning as part of Linux.conf.au 2012, to be held in January at the
University of Ballarat.  The Miniconf has been an opportunity for
presenters of all experience levels to share their experiences in in
application development using free and open source development tools.

The 2012 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 which support application development
- Coding applications with cool new libraries, languages and frameworks
- Demonstrating the use of novel programming
