Announcing the Open Source Bridge conference speakers

Open Source BridgeAfter much deliberation, reviewing more than 260 submissions, and taking into account more than 400 comments, it is our honor and pleasure to announce the confirmed Open Source Bridge speakers for 2009.

Please bear in mind that there are still some outstanding “accepted but not yet confirmed” speakers, so this list will likely change. For the latest and greatest list of confirmed talks, see the Open Source Bridge sessions.

Business

Chemistry

Cooking

Culture

Hacks

If you were among those accepted, congratulations! Please share your achievement far and wide. If your talk didn’t happen to make the cut, don’t fret. You could still propose your talk for the unconference sessions on Friday or gather some folks in the 24-hour hacker lounge for a chat.

We can’t wait to see these sessions in June. If you feel the same way, please register today.

    (Disclaimer: I’m doing light-volunteer work for them, but am in no way a primary organizer.)I am really looking forward to this event. It’s got the spirit of a BarCamp (and one free-for-all unconference day), but the "curation" of OSCON or a more traditional event.

    It’s a really good mix of some big name speakers like Rasmus and Chris Messina, and not-so-big-names, giving fresh topics a second look.

    I really like the mix of big names, and regular folks just talking about solutions they come up with. Perfect for a conference (sometimes we just see "the usual suspects" over and over.).

    What makes this event "wacky"?

    Pricing makes me think of YAPC. I went to one of those; it was a great time. Lots of talent, both local and big name. Larry Wall ended up being sick (IIRC), but Damian Conway gave a great introduction to programming in Klingon (with working prototype).http://www.archlug.org/kwiki/KlingonPerlProgramming
