[tcl_announce] O'Reilly Open Source Convention and Tcl/Tk Conference
- O'Reilly is sponsoring a large Open Source Convention that is an
umbrella for several conferences. This is an expansion of their
Perl conference to include parallel tracks for Perl, Linux, Apache,
Python, sendmail, and Tcl/Tk. The event runs from August 21 to 24, 1999
in Monterey California. General information about the conference
can be found at the O'Reilly web site. These URLs are helpful:
In order not to compete directly with the long running Tcl/Tk
conference, the next of which is "Tcl/2K" in February, 2000, we have
structured the conference around tutorials and invited talks. We are
also planning a contest so attendees can show off their best Tcl
programming skills in a variety of categories. A separate post will
describe the contest in more detail.
The tutorials run for 2 days, August 21 and 22 (Saturday and Sunday).
They cover these topics:
Introduction to Tcl/Tk
Effective Tcl/Tk Programming
Building Applications with BLT
Object-Oriented Programming with Tcl/Tk
C Programming with Tcl/Tk
Database Programming with Tcl/Tk
Web Scripting with Tcl
For more information, please see
The invited talks run for 2 days, August 23 and 24 (Monday and Tuesday).
Our speakers include:
In addition, there are convention-wide keynotes given by Guy Kowasaki
and Bill Joy. For details, please see
I hope you can plan to attend the Open Source Convention.
I look forward to seeing you in Monterey this August!
