    How many talks approx. are going to get accepted? With more speaking rooms, I was curious if there was a target number of slots to fill.

    There's been 35ish accepted so far, so there's a decent amount to still be decided, no?

    Does the submission process have a confirmation reply this year? I opted for the "email DT directly if you want to use PGP" option specified on the CFP page, but didn't receive any word back on whether or not it was received.

    Just curious.

    In the end I'm expecting four or five batches total, keep an eye out this weekend for the first batch to be posted. It's getting close to CON!
    I'm anticipating about 5,000 refreshes over the weekend for the first batch. Submitting adds a layer of anticipation (as if more was needed)! BWHAHAHA!

    I'm giddy to hear back. I've never submitted to talk before. Win, lose, or draw, I'm looking forward to the actual event!

    Too bad it's still 3+ months away........

    When will the first round be announced? May 1st sticks in my head for some reason, but I don't see an exact date range anywhere.

    I just wanted to give people the heads up that might not have read it on the CFP page that it seeems this year there will be two rounds of speaker acceptance and that half of the schedule will be filled before the submission deadline to encourage people to submit as early as possible.

    This would be a good year not to chose to be a total slacker like me. ;)

    DT, I would like to officially request that anyone that uses the phrase "I can has" or any form thereof in the CFP submission be not only rejected, but beaten with their own limbs...

    I take it my proposal to offically change the Hacker War Cry from "Hack The Planet" to "Crack Da Wepz" is out of the question to.
