Session submission for DDD Scotland 2011 is now closed and I have to say, what am amazing collection of subjects and talks!

Fun fact for you, more sessions were submitted to DDD Scotland 2011 than were submitted to DDD 9, c’mon the Scots? Winking smile

Jesting aside, this is the part where we turn control over to you, the community and ask you to vote on the sessions you want to see on the day. DDD Scotland is a democratic process and it is the community who whittles down 88 sessions to the 20 or so that will actually run on the day. Voting is now open so what are you waiting for? Get voting!

Wow, the dedication and drive to further skills in the UK development community continues to amaze and impress me. DDD 9 registration was full in just 12 minutes that is over 300 places gone in a phenomenally short space of time!

Back up here in Scotland though we are hoping to harness that enthusiasm from the community with DDD Scotland 2011 and so with that in mind Scottish Developers have issued a call for speakers. We are looking for people to submit sessions for this year’s event and the same simple rule as always applies, sessions must be related to software development. See simple.

If you have a session that you think would fit the bill or even if you have an idea for a session (you have 5 months remember!) then please, submit it : http://developerdeveloperdeveloper.com/scotland2011/

Session submission will be open until Sunday 6th February and community voting will open on Monday 7th February.

We look forward to your submissions!
