Submit a talk to Open Source Bridge by Mar 16th, get WMF subsidy

This year I want the Wikimedia technical community to have a strong
presence at Open Source Bridge <> in
Portland, Oregon, USA, June 26-29.  OSB is tech talks & hack sessions
with hands-on technologists we want, for Foundation staff recruiting
(the Portland tech scene has good people looking for jobs) and for
volunteer recruiting and collaboration (tons of Mozilla people went
there last year).  Good talks, clueful people, great food. :-)

If you submit a talk and it gets accepted, tell me, and Wikimedia
Foundation will partially subsidize or fully pay for your flight and
hotel.  If you submit a talk and it doesn't get accepted but you still
want to go, talk with me and I'll see what I can do.

Call for talks:
 Ideas: the parser rewrite, Wikimedia Labs, how we scale and optimize
performance on a shoestring budget, our git/gerrit migration, securing
PHP-based webapps, various approaches to making our data more
structured/semantic, collaborative design, lessons from our communities,
JS hacks, hetdeploy, offline/mobile, geodata...

Please forward.
