I’m going to be keynoting two conferences in the next month or so with extended remixes of the talk I gave at OSCON about women in open source, Standing Out in the Crowd. I’m very pleased to be have the opportunity to expand on some of the subjects I had to rush past in the fifteen minute version.
The first event is this coming Saturday the 19th of September. Atlanta Linux Fest is a free, grassroots event for the Linux and Open Source community and will feature lots of other great speakers including Ellen Ko, Rikki Kite, Michelle Hall, and more. If you’re in the Atlanta area you should come on by! Register here!
The second is ZendCon, a PHP conference in San Jose on October 19-22. My keynote’s on the 21st. Other women speaking include Sara Golemon and Elizabeth Marie Smith. If you’d like to attend, I’ve got a discount code for readers of this blog: enter “YDSK9″ at registration time and you will get 5% off whatever package you choose.
If you’re at either event, please come and say hi!
