OSDC Israel 2009 - Call for organizers

As you might have noticed after the successful OSDC in 2006
I got so busy with work that in 2007 I could only organize a one day
Perl Workshop right in the last minute. This year seem to pass without a
conference but in the beginning of 2009 I'd like to have another
OSDC in Israel.

If you happened to forget or never heard about it then OSDC stands for
Open Source Developers' Conference. It originates from Australia just as
the kangaroo and the koala bear.

In Israel it was the natural enlargement of the YAPCs
(Yet Another Perl Conferences) that were held since 2003.

In the previous OSDC in 2006 there were about 200 visitors
including Larry Wall, developer of Perl and Audrey Tang,
developer of Pugs.
They could select from about
47.3% of Perl talks as the Perl community had been quite
         organized in the previous years already
33.1% of Python talks as they just started to meet before the
         conference
2 Ruby and
0 PHP presentations.

Since then the Perl community got more silent.
The Python mailing list and meetings have faded away.
The Ruby developers had a few meetings but then declared their
 mailing list to be dead just to have a surge of messages.
The PHP community while hardly has any messages on the mailing list
have monthly meetings in Zend.

OSDC::Israel and Test Automation Hackathon - Whom to invite?

Hi,

You might have already heard that I started to organize
the Open Source Developers' Conference Israel to be held in February 2009.

The main theme of the conference is Integrating Unit Testing and Test
Automation.

Around the conference I would like to have a few days of Hackathon to improve
the Integration among the various Testing systems.
For this I'd like to get some of the central people of the test automation
world together.

For details of the hackathon see
http://act.osdc.org.il/osdc2009il/hackathon.html

If this whole thing is interesting for you then
1) register on the conference web page to show interest and to gain
write access to the wiki
2) Recommend someone whom you think should attend the hackathon
on the wiki.
3) If your company is interested in sponsoring one or more of the attendees
please let me know.

Forward this message to others whom might be interested.
Blog about this in places you know both in Hebrew and English and post
a link to the blog
here: http://act.osdc.org.il/osdc2009il/wiki?node=PublicRelations

regards
Gabor

Python on the QA hackathon

So I am trying to create a list of people who
are heavily involved in testing in order to invite them to the QA Hackathon.

There are some central people from the Perl and PHP community already
listed (e.g. the developer of PHPUnit, some of the central developers of
the Test Anything Protocol in Perl but I don't yet have any receommendations
from the Python community.

So I'd really like to get your ideas whom to invite?

See the current list here:
http://act.osdc.org.il/osdc2009il/wiki?node=Hackathon

regards
   Gabor

The bad thing about hardware is that it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
The good thing about software is that it's consistent: it always does not
work, and it always does not work in exactly the same way.

Re: Python on the QA hackathon

I think the testoob guys - Ori Peleg <oripel <at> users.sourceforge.net>,   
Misha Seltzer <mishas <at> users.sourceforge.net> and myself would be good  
choice.

Re: Python on the QA hackathon

Hi Nir, Ori and Misha,

I think it would be great if you could attend the hackathon but
as far as I can tell you are all locals so you don't need any special treatment
regarding the hackathon. Especially if there are going to be expenses associated
with your attendance those will be fairly low.
As that is a wiki, if you are interested attending then please register on the
conference web site and add yourself to the wiki.

I am looking for recommendations for people from overseas you would like to
work with for a couple of days face to face.

If you look at the hackathon page on the wiki
http://act.osdc.org.il/osdc2009il/wiki?node=Hackathon
you will see a number of central figures in the Perl and PHP testing
communities from Europe and the US.
I'd like to have a few names from the Python world - people you think
should be here.

Once I have a decent list with replies from people that they would
like to attend I'll
start looking for more sponsors to cover their expenses.

regards
    Gabor
