What talks do you want to see at PyCon?

Wednesday, August 22, 2012
PyCon is a conference for the community. You're the audience. You're the speakers. You're the ones watching the videos. Now is your chance to speak up and let us know what you want to see. There are 37 days left to submit proposals for PyCon 2013, so if you have a topic you want to hear about, let us know! We'll share the ideas with everyone and see if we can find speakers for everything and make this the best conference schedule yet.

Some people have already started coming up with topic lists on their blogs. Daniel Greenfield put up a great post yesterday, with interest in seeing how Python is used in space exploration and research. Ned Batchelder started a thread this morning on Reddit to gauge interest in talks people want to see. He's interested in Stompy from Project Hexapod, the giant Python-powered robot.

What are you interested in? Tweet us your ideas to @pycon or use the #pycon hashtag and we'll pull everything together. If you make a blog post about it, tweet the link or email me and I'll include it in a list we'll be putting together.

If you're ready to submit a proposal, check out some of our resources under the Speak at PyCon page. From there you'll see some important dates, including September 28 as our deadline for talk and tutorial proposals. Poster proposals aren't due until January 15, 2013. We also have our Call for Proposals which includes more detail on the types of proposals that we're accepting.

Submitting a proposal is as easy as signing up, checking out your dashboard, creating a speaker profile, and submitting a new proposal! We'll be following up in the coming days with some helpful tips and examples for writing your proposal, so check back here for more info.
