14.06.2007: YAPC::Europe: talks have been accepted
As you might have noticed already, we have now worked through all the interesting talk submissions and selected the ones you’ll see during YAPC::Europe. This was a hard job, as we got 25% more talks than we have time available (and even now the schedule will be quite packed…)
Here’s our talk-selection-algorithm:
Calculate how much time we have available
Accept talks from all speaker who submitted one talk only, unless a speaker submitted only rubbish (which didn’t happen). We really wanted as much different speakers as possible, especially newcomers.
Go through the talks of all speakers who submitted more than one talk and pick the most interesting. This was very hard…
Check if there’s still time left to fill with talks
