Ohio LinuxFest Call For Presentations Extended

Columbus, Ohio — June 29, 2010 — Bring your A Game and pitch a proposal that will help educate and entertain the masses at this year’s Ohio LinuxFest. The organizers have extended the call for presentations until July 7th to ensure the best possible selection of talks for this year’s Ohio LinuxFest.

We’re looking for speakers who can address a wide range of topics related to Linux and open source. Talks suited for beginners or experts, or in-between, are welcome. We’re particularly interested in talks on current topics like Android, MeeGo, KVM, Python for System Administration, WordPress, GNOME, KDE, Ruby on Rails, Django, Linux distributions, and more. And just because it’s a LinuxFest doesn’t mean we won’t welcome BSD-related talks with open arms. In short, if it’s relevant to the OLF audience, we’d like to hear your ideas.

Get them in quick, though! The call for presentations is online at http://www.ohiolinux.org/cfp10.html. You have until July 7th to submit your best proposals, speakers will be notified approximately two weeks after the CFP ends. Successful proposals will be detailed, interesting, and free of marketing content.

Keynote speakers for Ohio LinuxFest are already selected. Speakers will be on the same schedule as GNOME Executive Director Stormy Peters, and Ogg creator Christopher “Monty” Montgomery. Have questions about the CFP? Shoot an email to speakers@ohiolinux.org.

The Ohio LinuxFest is an annual conference dedicated to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS). Held in Columbus, Ohio every Fall, the Ohio LinuxFest is the largest FOSS conference in the MidWest. More than 1,300 people attended last year’s OLF. Registration is free and open to anyone interested in Linux and open source. For more information on Ohio LinuxFest, see http://www.ohiolinux.org/.
