The call for participation for the backstage.bbc.co.uk Open Tech 2005 event is now open. Taking place in London, UK on 23rd July 2005 and sponsored by backstage.bbc.co.uk, Open Tech 2005 is an informal one-day conference about technologies that anyone can have a go at, from "Open Source"-style ways of working to repurposing everyday electronics hardware. It also includes the official launch of the backstage.bbc.co.uk developer network and whatever you offer.
Last year had excellent talks, great weather, beer and some wifi; and this year promises to be of the same high quality and beer (we're currently unsure about the weather and wifi). If you want to talk about your project, we're taking submissions until June 25th.
See you there.
