Lightning Talks: bring yours!

Saturday evening after the last of the breakout sessions, we will meet for one closing round of lightning talks. And who's giving these lightning talks? You!

That is to say, all day long at the registration desk, you can sign up for a lightning talk slot. Slots are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Here are the rules:

CFP Ended - Speakers Announced Soon

The CFP has ended, and speaker selections will be announced publicly by Wednesday April 24, 2013. We are just waiting to confirm with all the selected speakers with their commitment!

All submitted session speakers will be notified if they were selected or not.

Call For Papers extended until Friday April 5

Good news! Due to requests from our speakers and vendors about the holiday weekend, we have decided to push back the 2013 Call For Papers until Friday, April 5, at 11:59 pm, Central Time.

The rest of the schedule remains unchanges; we will contact all speakers by April 15th. We hope to begin notifying speakers about talk selections this week, but if you have already submitted a talk, don't worry. We have received a lot of proposals already, sorting through them is never a simple task!


GitHub Advanced Git Class

Many Git workshops successfully focus on the basics for those new to DVCS. However, with Git having a full 5 years on the street now, there is a growing desire to address the maturing users of this innovative DVCS. This workshop will take existing Git users and bring them to a heightened level of productivity by leveraging Git’s powerful, yet underused “advanced” features.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

BSDA Certification Exams at TXLF
