PyCon Australia 2012's Call for Proposals closes this week!

This week marks your last opportunity to submit proposals to present at PyCon Australia 2012, the national conference for the Python programming community, to be held on August 18 and 19 in Hobart, Tasmania.

The deadline for proposal submission is Friday May 4, 2012, and more information can be found at http://pycon-au.org/cfp

PyCon Australia is an excellent opportunity to share experience and knowledge with like-minded Python developers from all walks of life -- we attract professional developers from industry, government, science and education, along with enthusiast and student developers. Presentations can be targeted at all skill levels, on any topic related to Python programming.

If you're a first-time developer, don't be afraid to submit a presentation -- we're a community-driven conference, and we have a focus on building the next generation of Python programmers.

Don't know what to present about? PyCon Australia co-organiser, Christopher Neugebauer recently listed the results of PyCon Australia 2012's Call for Topics on his blog [1]; we'd love it if you used these suggestions to help shape your submission.

We can't wait to see your proposals.
