We're now past the CFP deadline - thanks to everyone who submitted a
proposal.

If you're still interested in submitting something but didn't quite get
it in, contact me or submit a talk through the website and I'll see if
we still have space left over. Also note that the current plan is to
have a couple of hours of unconference time during which I'm happy to
take lightning talks.

For the rest of you, hope to see you in Hobart!
