Calls for Proposals closed: WOW!

As of the wee hours of this morning, the calls for proposals (for half-day tutorials, and for conference talks) are closed.

What a result! Now that the dust has settled from the last-minute rush, it looks like we received about 40 tutorial proposals and over 140 conference talk proposals.

That's far more than we can fit into the schedule. The program committee is now responsible for selecting a subset of these talks & tutorials for the conference. Over the next couple of weeks we will be examining the proposals, asking for clarifications, and voting. We'll be busy!

Care to lend a hand? There's a lot more than proposal reviewing that needs doing. Please take a look at Helping Out at PyCon
