PyOhio (July 30-31) Call for Proposals

PyOhio 2011, the fourth annual Python programming conference for Ohio and the surrounding region, will take place Saturday-Sunday, July 30-31, 2011 at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. A variety of activities are planned, including tutorials, scheduled talks, Lightning Talks, Open Spaces and Sprints.

PyOhio invites all interested people to submit proposals for scheduled talks, tutorials, and panels. All topics of interest to Python programmers will be considered. Standard presentation slots will be 40 minutes plus a 10 minute question-and-answer period.

PyOhio is a great venue to get word out about your favorite Python library and how you use it, talk about how Python is used in your company, or practice your speaking in front of a welcoming audience.

PyOhio is especially interested in hosting a Beginner’s Track for those new to Python or new to programming in general. If your proposal would be suitable for inclusion in a Beginner’s Track, please indicate so. Organizers will work with speakers and instructors in the Beginner’s Track to help them coordinate their talks/tutorials into a smooth, coherent learning curve for new Python users.

To ensure that you provide all necessary information, please use the submission template provided below. If organizing a panel, please confirm all panelists’ intention to participate before submitting your proposal.

PyOhio may record presentations for later release over the web. Presenters will need to sign a release of recording rights to PyOhio; see http://wiki.python.org/moin/PyOhio/RecordingRelease

All proposals should be emailed to cfp@pyohio.org for review. Please submit proposals by Friday, June 3, 2011. Accepted speakers will be notified by June 17.

You can read more about the conference at http://pyohio.org. If you have questions about proposals, please email cfp@pyohio.org. You can also contact the PyOhio organizers at pyohio-organizers@python.org.

The sprints run for four days, from Thursday to Sunday after the conference. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the sprints! Some teams plan to write code over all four days, while some projects plan a shorter sprint if the organizers cannot stay for all four days.Can you start getting prepared for the sprint ahead of time? Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
