From the website:
The O’Reilly OSCON Data conference is the first of its kind: bringing together open source culture and data hackers to cover data management at a very practical level. From disks and databases through to big data and analytics, OSCON Data will have instruction and inspiration from the people who actually do the work.
OSCON Data will take place July 25-27, 2011, in Portland, Oregon. We’ll be co-located with OSCON itself.
Proposals should include as much detail about the topic and format for the presentation as possible. Vague and overly broad proposals don’t showcase your skills and knowledge, and our volunteer reviewers aren’t mind readers. The more you can tell us, the more likely the proposal will be selected.
Proposals that seem like a “vendor pitch” will not be considered. The purpose of OSCON Data is to enlighten, not to sell.
Yes, it is right before Balisage but I think worth considering if you are on the West Coast and can’t get to Balisage this year or if you are feeling really robust.
Hmmm, I wonder how a proposal that merges the indexes of the different NoSQL volumes from O’Reilly would be received? You are aware that O’Reilly is re-creating the X-Windows problem that was the genesis of both topic maps and DocBook?
I will have to write that up in detail at some point. I wasn’t there but have spoken to some of the principals who were. Plus I have the notes, etc.
