We are pleased to announce that the CFP for gr8confau is now open. Gr8 Conference Australia will be held on 15th November 2011 at ANU (Australian National University), Canberra

As this is our first time running the conference in Australia, it will be run as a mini-conf of Open Source Developers Conference (OSDC) 2011 which runs for the entire week from 14th -18th November. To attend the gr8 conference you will need to have a ticket for OSDC (which is very reasonably priced) or pay a small fee (expected to be around $50) for a miniconf ticket. We'd strongly encourage you to buy a full ticket for OSDC though - it's a great conference and very good value.

We'll have a proper landing page on the gr8conf website soon, but for the moment this blog post should suffice to get things rolling.

So, if you have a presentation you would like to make on Groovy, Grails, Griffon, Gradle, GaelykGpars or any other technology based on Groovy - please forward your submission to:
