Call For Proposals
The deadline for proposal submission is the 2nd of May.
That's only a few days away!
We are looking for proposals for talks on all aspects of Python
programming from novice to advanced levels; applications and frameworks,
or how you have been involved in introducing Python into your
organisation. 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?
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.
The earlier you submit your proposal, the more time we will have to
review and give you feedback before the program is finalised.
Speakers receive free registration for the conference, including a seat
at the conference dinner. Don't miss out, submit your proposal today!
