Richard Jones' Log: PyCon AU 2014 CFP about to close!

Thu, 24 Apr 2014

The PyCon Australia 2014 CFP is about to close! Last chance to get your proposal in! Quoted:

The conference this year will be held on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 August 2014 in Brisbane. We'll also be featuring a day of miniconfs on Friday 1 August.

The deadline for proposal submission is Friday 25 April, 2014.

PyCon Australia attracts professional developers from all walks of life, including industry, government, and science, as well as enthusiast and student developers. We’re looking for proposals for presentations and tutorials on any aspect of Python programming, at all skill levels from novice to advanced.

Presentation subjects may range from reports on open source, academic or commercial projects; or even tutorials and case studies. If a presentation is interesting and useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program.

We're especially interested in short presentations that will teach conference-goers something new and useful. Can you show attendees how to use a module? Explore a Python language feature? Package an application?

Proposals about the Django web framework are very strongly encouraged, and will also be considered for inclusion in DjangoCon AU, to be held on Friday 1 August.

There will also be a Science and Data Analysis miniconf and an OpenStack miniconf held alongside DjangoCon AU. Proposals on either of these topics will be considered for inclusion in these miniconfs.

We welcome first-time speakers; we are a community conference and we are eager to hear about your experience. If you have friends or colleagues who have something valuable to contribute, twist their arms to tell us about it! Please also forward this Call for Proposals to anyone that you feel may be interested.

See you in Brisbane in August!
