Fwd: Texas Linux Fest 2016 CFP

We are looking for people who could speak at this conference.  Any volunteers?  Being out in the community is an important goal this year and GNOME needs to show presence.  The U.S. especially has not seen the kind of presence that is needed to help draw contributors and sponsors to conferences and is an important component of being part of Free Software.

If you are interested, I can help you with what kind of talks we would like to see and can help formulate one.  But to wit:

1) Runtime/SDKs - xdg-app (now flatpack) technical talk
2) social talk about how GNOME is user space engineering and an important part of the Linux kernel and GNU eco-systems.
3) GNOME Software - the complete app store.
4) GNOME Builder - next generation development tool to make building GNOME apps easier.

If you have other passion that you would like to talk about (e.g. accessibility, GTK+, etc) then we are more than happy to see them.

Greetings, valued GNOME friends,

Nate Willis here; amongst my other project pastimes, I'm one of the organizers of Texas Linux Fest,
which is the leading community Linux-and-FOSS conference for Texas and
the surrounding region.

Our event is July 8th and 9th this year, in downtown Austin, TX.  We'd
really love it if folks from the GNOME project & community can be there—be
they local or from out of town.

I especially wanted to draw your attention to our call for
participation.  We're intent on attracting a wide variety of speakers
representing open source and free software, both users and developers,
from all corners.  The details are here:


and the deadline is approaching.

Please consider submitting a talk proposal, and we would love it if
you could help us spread the word by sharing the CFP with your community!

If you have any questions, or if you want to know more about Texas
Linux Fest in general, please get in touch!

Thanks, from me and on behalf of the entire TXLF 2016 team,

PS - I've tried to make this email just general enough that, if you feel like
it, you could just forward it to any mailing lists or cut-and-paste it into
any discussion forum that seems appropriate.  It's also just short enough
to take to the tattoo parlor.  Feel free!
