With PyCon 2012 efforts off to a great start, we’re looking for you,
the people of the Python community, so show us what you’ve got. Our
call for proposals (http://us.pycon.org/2012/cfp/) just went out and
we want to include you in our 2012 conference schedule, taking place
March 7-15, 2012 in Santa Clara, CA.
The call covers tutorial, talk, and poster applications, and we’re
expecting to blow the previous record of 250 applications out of the
water. Put together your best 3-hour class proposals for one of the
tutorial sessions on March 7 and 8. Submit your best talks on any
range of topics for the conference days, March 9 through 11. The
poster session will be in full swing on Sunday with a series of 4'x4'
posters and an open floor for attendees to interact with presenters.
Get your applications in early - we want to help you put together the
best proposal possible, so we’re going to work with submitters as
applications come in.
We’re also looking for feedback from your past PyCon experiences along
with what you’re looking for in the future, by way of our 2012
Guidance Survey at
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/pycon2012_launch_survey. The attendees
make the conference, so every response we get from you makes a
difference in putting together the best conference we can.
