One Month Until Proposals Are Due!

Friday, August 16, 2013
We're now inside the final month of our Call for Proposals for PyCon 2014, with talk and tutorial proposals due on September 15. The conference takes place April 9-17 in Montréal, but we've been hard at work to prepare the event, and we're looking forward to putting together another great schedule. To do this, we need you, the community, to submit your best ideas for talks!

We know you're all up to awesome stuff -- we see it all the time. The Python world is as active as ever, with great projects popping up all the time on Hacker News and Reddit, then passed around on Twitter, and making their way to the mailing lists.

So not only should you submit a proposal, you should tell your peers to submit them as well! We want to put together not just a schedule we like, but one that you'll like even more, so we can always use help from the audience by bringing us the people and topics you want to see on stage.

If you have any topic ideas or speakers you want to see, email me at brian@python.org and I'll see what I can do. I'll gather up topics and make another post to share them, and if you have requests for people you want to hear from, I'll reach out to them and encourage them to submit a proposal.

If you're looking for help with your proposal, check out our resources and advice pages. Many of us on the program committee are repeat members, with several of us having seen over a thousand proposals to this conference. If there's anything we can do to help you submit a great proposal, we'll do it. All you have to do is ask. The best way to ask is to start with a proposal! Sketch out as much as you can, then ask your questions at pycon-pc@python.org.

We're already seeing some great proposals coming in. Will we see yours?
