... CodeMash is a pretty awesome January conference in Sandusky.  The
organizers are very Python-friendly and it's a fun time.  I did a
Python intro at CodeMash 2008 and got a great crowd.

If you'd like to do a talk there, move fast - today's the day!
(Sorry, this is a REALLY late reminder.)

Subject: reminder: CodeMash abstracts due by tomorrow
To: undisclosed-recipients

Hi all,

I'm sending out a reminder to people in the community that might want
to submit a talk for CodeMash, and that possibly haven't.  I also
included people who might *know* people that might want to submit a
talk.  Either way, please consider submitting.

Just a reminder: CodeMash will be held January 7-9 at the Kalahari
Resort (indoor water park) in Sandusky, OH.  Targeting developers of
all platforms and languages, CodeMash's philosophy is to "mash, not
bash", bringing together people to learn more about their own
languages of choice as well as about languages that they don't use. We
feel that by learning more about other languages, you broaden your
mind.  We have submissions for Python, .NET, Java, Ruby, Erlang. F#,
and Scala and we're open to more.  We have many tracks to choose from,
but don't feel constrained by what you see.  If there's something that
you feel would be a great talk, we may as well.  Submit it.

Last year's conference attracted over 300 developers from mainly the
midwest (but some people traveled from far reaches of the country).
This year, I think that we may sell out at 500!

We have had a lot of submissions already, and we're thrilled to have
such a great pool to choose from.  That's why I'm bothering you ... to
raise that bar even higher.

Please submit at http://codemash.org/BeASpeaker.aspx

If you do NOT receive a message box confirming your submission, let me know!

If you've already submitted, I would be happy to make sure that your
abstract made it into the database.  Just email me and I'll check.

And if you choose not to submit a talk, I hope that you will attend.
Let me know if you want a reminder when registration opens.  Or just
check back at www.codemash.org.  We're hoping to make registration
live sometime next week.
