Ballroom. Still working on the web site.)

Is there something you're doing with D that is just begging to be shared? Do a 
talk at the D conference! Talks are either 60 or 90 minutes. Topics can be:

1. tutorials on how to use D
2. case studies of using D
3. this cool new library you're developing
4. this incredible technique you've discovered
5. rants about D
6. your proposal for new D features
7. anything else D!

Please email me with your proposals. No experience doing presentations is
required.

(Speakers will get a free registration for the conference.)

Maybe it's also good to schedule some 3/5 minutes long talks (lighting talks). And maybe to also leave a free window of 30-60 minutes for un-scheduled lighting talks (to be scheduled during the conference itself). Both things have shown to be useful in the Python conferences I have attended to. I have written on the fly (and later given) un-scheduled lighting talks, and I've seen it's useful and fun.

Those are for the 3rd day of the conference.

Another question (rather than whether there's something that you want to talk about) would be if there's anything that you want others to talk about. Maybe there's a topic that someone else would be willing and qualified to speak on but which they haven't thought of. And if the current list of speakers is any indicator, we're lacking in people intending to give presentations. - Jonathan M Davis
