Proposal Selection Update!
August 22, 2014
We know that all of the all of you who submitted presentation proposals are waiting on the edges of your seats to know if you’ve been selected. Rest assured that we have ranked all 70 submissions and we will be notifying the selected speakers in the next few days.
The reason for the delay is that we have so many great proposals that we’re trying to add extra rooms to the conference so we can have twice as many presentations. Depending on availability, this could mean over 50 presentations, plus our great keynote speaker and a block of time set aside for lightning talks.
