I'd like to encourage people about the value of OSDC and also of presenting
a talk. Last year at Sydney, the conference was really very vibrant and fun
to be at. There were heaps of great talks, covering the range from practical
to theoretical to world-dominating :) Anyone, at any level, would have
plenty to learn and get excited by.

Presenting can also be a very valuable experience. Presenting is not only
valuable experience in a skill (presentation generally), but a great
opportunity to connect with other people who are interested in the same
subject areas. It's very rewarding, and a great way to give back to the
community also.
