This is a second call for talk proposals for PyCon ZA 2019. While
we've already received several great talk proposals, we still have a
number of open talk slots and are thus keen to see further talk
PyCon ZA 2019 will take place on the 10th & 11th of October at The
Wanders Club in Illovo, Johannesburg, South Africa (location link:
https://www.thewanderersclub.co.za/contact/). There will also be
tutorial sessions the day before the conference (the 9th) and we will
hold sprints on the 12th & 13th of October.
We are currently accepting proposals for talks. If you would like to
give a presentation, please register at https://za.pycon.org/ and
submit your proposal, following the instructions at
https://za.pycon.org/talks/submit-talk/ . We have a number of tracks
available, including: Data Science, Teaching and Learning with Python,
Web, Scientific Computing, Testing and Other (which includes all talks
that don't fall under the mentioned tracks). We hope to notify
accepted presenters by no later than the 31st of August 2019.
The presentation slots will be 30 minutes long, with an additional 10
minutes for discussion at the end. Shared sessions are also possible.
The presentations will be in English.
PyCon ZA offers a mentorship program for inexperienced speakers. If
you would like assistance preparing your submission, email
[hidden email] with a rough draft of your talk proposal and we'll
find a suitable experienced speaker to act as a mentor.
