Closed the CFP after extending it for a couple of days, and finally got enough
talks to cover the three days of the conference. We got some very cool talks
this year by the way!
We received a total of 16 full-slot talks and 8 half-slot talks. On top of that
we received 2 workshops, 3 lightning talks, and 0 demos at this moment. We still
welcome submissions for lightning talks and demos!
CFP committee is almost done reviewing the talks. The plan is to finish
reviewing all talks by this week, and next week we can start accepting talks
together while preparing the final version of the program. Organizers are
finishing up the speakers document as well, which we will hopefully send
together with the acceptance of the talks.
Other things about the conference: organizers are still testing big blue
internally. they are still undecided if jitsi+youtube like last year would be
better, or if we should use big blue button.
Samuel will also be off for the whole month of august on vacation, so Lyude will
be taking over responding to XDC questions from presenters for them during this
