      We'll be running a two-day workshop at the Department of Information Technology, Cape Peninsula University of Technology in the first week of August. If you would be interested in giving a talk, please drop me an email. And I would appreciate it if you could refer to me anyone you think might be interested.

      Any interesting topic -on FoSS (packaging, cloud/virtualization, software development, e.t.c.)- would definitely be accepted. It is an event aimed at bringing together industry, developers, educators and the community and any other interested parties to discuss open source, open web, and academic/industry partnerships.

      You will be presenting to both the academic staff and postgraduate students in the Department of IT. Hence, the sophistication level has got to be very high. The duration of your talk is 30min., 15min. for demo and 15min. for Q&A.
