It wasn't my intention.
While I think there will be lots of talks that are interesting only to
people in one
of the languages - people from the industry will most likely be
interested only in
talks that are "usable now and immediately" but I certainly would like to have
talks (or sets of talks) that mix people.

Great, one of the things I started on the conference wiki
is to get such ideas listed. I am going to send an e-mail out with
this request soon but it would be good if you already added your
ideas to that page.

publicity is always welcome. Write as much as possible about the conference
both in Hebrew and English and post a link to your writing on the PR page
on the conference wiki:
