Poster Session Proposal Deadline Nears

The preparations for PyCon 2012 are moving into their final phase. The talks have been announced, the tutorials are on the books, just about the only thing that remains is to submit a poster proposal!

Do you want to share your latest Python coding experiments? Or build interest in a budding project? Do you want to present something at PyCon, but don't feel that a talk is for you?

Now in its third year, the poster session has become a part of the PyCon tradition. Praised by presenters for being both an excellent opportunity to interact with interested people and a lower pressure, more accessible venue than regular talks, the poster session lets you reach more people at PyCon with less fuss than any other type of presentation. So if you have an idea that you want to get out there, or a project you want feedback on, submit a poster.

For more reasons why you simply must present a poster, see Brian Curtin's earlier post and for more information on the poster sessions and how to submit a proposal, visit the general description of the poster session or the poster session CFP

Poster proposals are being accepted on a rolling basis for one more week (or until we hit our limit of 36 posters). Submissions are coming in, so if you want to be sure of getting a spot, go to the PyCon speaker information page and submit your proposal soon!

I hope to see you (and your poster) at PyCon!
