OSCON (O'Reilly Open Source Conference) will be held in Portland, OR July
20-24. The Call for Proposals is now open with a DEADLINE of Monday
O'Reilly has completely reorganized OSCON. Instead of focusing on
individual technologies, there are a bunch of themes:
* Identity - An emerging and nuanced facet in the digital age and an
exciting cross-functional track at OSCON 2015.
* Security - We'll explore security from top to bottom, offering
frameworks and libraries, strategies for testing, and field reports
of both security failure and success.
* Privacy - Computers remember our interactions at a level of detail
the physical world never has. Do we want to be remembered, and for
* Performance - From compilation and interpreter time to DOM
manipulation, browser responsiveness, and network latency, we'll
explore performance in all its facets.
* Mobility - We'll look at what it means to have a successful mobile
game plan, from wearables to native apps.
* People - Making projects work requires communications,
collaboration, and respect; we'll look at the ways a new generation
of tools and approaches can help you work.
* Architecture - Software architecture is a massive multidisciplinary
subject, covering many roles and responsibilities--and a key
position in the success of any business.
* Scale - You've created a great web interface that is well designed,
secure, and works well in a beta with 100 consumers, but how about
10,000, 1,000,000, or more?
* Storage - Find your way among the myriad choices for storing data
and optimizing your systems for stability, distribution,
convenience, and performance.
* Teaching - You want to share your best practices, projects, and
tools with the world, but how do you go about sharing this
knowledge? We'll examine learning theory and methods of teaching.
* Design - It's critical for success; learn how to incorporate design
best practices from the beginning of your project rather and all
the way through.
* Solve - Harness the power of math to manipulate, secure, and create
* Data - Let's tackle data's continued, growing influence over the
entire business world and how you can make it work for you.
* Foundations - A strong foundation in computational thinking,
problem solving, and programming best practices makes for a

"The joy of coding Python should be in seeing short, concise, readable
classes that express a lot of action in a small amount of clear code --
not in reams of trivial code that bores the reader to death." --GvR
