Subject OpenSQLCamp EU 2010 - Call for participation is now open
Date Mon, 31 May 2010 12:44:08 GMT
OpenSQL Camp is a free conference of, by, and for the open-source database
community of users and developers. The OpenSQLCamp 2010, European Edition
(http://opensqlcamp.org/) will take part in parallel to the Free and Open
Source Conference 2010 (http://froscon.org/) on Saturday 21st and Sunday
22nd August in St. Augustin, Germany, which is located close to Bonn and
Cologne.

The goal of this event is to spread the word about the vibrant communities
and large ecosystems that exist around Open Source Databases and to educate
the attendees about possible alternatives to commercial databases. It is a
place where people come to learn, to participate and to contribute.

We would like to invite your project to participate in this event.

We've set up a call for participation
(http://opensqlcamp.org/Events/2010/Call_for_Participation) - the deadline
for submitting your proposal is July 11th.

We are seeking talks related to Open Source Databases of all kind, not just
relational databases! Submission about tools and technologies related to
OSS databases (e.g. connectors/APIs) are also welcome.

Some ideas and for submissions:

* A how to presentation, showing how to solve a common problem in the
database field.
* An introduction/overview about a certain database project/product or
  related tool
* Providing "best practices" information for administrators
* A deeply technical and developer-centric session about some project's
  internals or an API used to connect to a database

We look forward to your contribution! Please don't hesitate to contact us
via IRC (#opensqlcamp on FreeNode) or our Discussion Group
(http://groups.google.com/group/opensqlcamp)
