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 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:
