Hello Gr8 Programmers,

The Gr8Conf in Minnesota is having a call for presenters - closes in two weeks. 

BTW, I'd like to get meetings restarted soon, I've been crazy for the last few months.  Looking for presenters / speakers - let me know if you are interested.

Subject: GR8 US Call for Presentations

As you may have heard, GR8 US has just opened it's call for presentations.  We are looking for presenters to talk about their experiences with Groovy, Grails, Griffon and other GR8 technologies.  

If you have a topic you would like to talk about at GR8, please visit to submit your proposal.

GR8 2012 will take place on July 30-31, 2012 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in downtown Minneapolis.  It will feature four concurrent tracks with a wide range of Groovy-related topics.   Based on past years our attendance will consist of a split between people who have been developing with Groovy for years and people who want to learn about the language and ecosystem for the first time.  

This means we'll definitely want beginner topics that highlight the benefits of the ecosystem, or give tutorials on how to get started.  We'll also be looking for more advanced and nonconventional topics to interest those that have been using Groovy for awhile.  Given the multiple tracks and multiple days, we feel we have a lot of room to try out new things this year, so feel free to be creative or get specific with your topics.

If you are having trouble coming up with a presentation idea we have a list of suggested topics in our presentation guidelines.  It is by no means exhaustive, but should give you some ideas if you're looking for them.

Please feel free to contact others who may be interested in presenting at GR8.  Our call for presentations is open until February 15th, 2012 and we will reply by March 1st, 2012.  

If you have additional questions always feel free to contact us at [address removed], or you can refer to our presentation guidelines.

Thank you,
Shaun Jurgemeyer
