This might inspire you for some last-minute proposals. And later allow you to find out which ones were not accepted ;-)
- Beyond technical skills: what makes open source developers sucessful?
- Talking about openness, honesty, humility, respect as essential values.
- Transforming XML with XSLT – without the pain!
- Many people should learn much more about XPath and the tree model, and should ignore most XSLT instructions when starting to write transforms.
- Open Source Project Tools for Corporate Projects?
- Mostly a rerun of last year’s talk, in case the planners want it again.
- The HTTP developer’s toolkit</
- Examples using wget, curl, ab, ngrep and similar tools to find out what’s happening between your client and server. Developers working with HTTP-based software should be familiar with these tools – or be prepared to fly blind!
- Beyond full-text searches with Solr and Lucene
- Tales from the trenches, a case study based on my current project, using Solr to replace database-based searches, and as a backend for Ajax-based navigation widgets.
I don’t expect all five to be accepted of course…or I might have to pack them all into one, with a 50% discount as someone recently did.
Steve has also published his proposals titles. I’d love to hear him on the datacenter in your wallet, this utility computing stuff is very exciting.
