PyCascades is a two-day single track conference organized by Python
community members in the Pacific Northwest.
After producing PyCascades Vancouver (2018) and PyCascades Seattle (2019),
we are now ready to complete the PyCascades trilogy in Portland, Oregon,
We'll be coming to Revolution Hall, Feb 8-9, 2020. There will be sprints at
the same venue on Monday, Feb 10, 2020.

*Call for proposals*
Our CFP is currently open until October 1st, 2019, and we want your talk
We're especially keen on having new and first time speakers on our stage.
We've recruited a number of experienced speakers as mentors, and they'll be
happy to help you with your talk proposal. You can request a mentor by

Our opportunity grant program is designed to prioritize people with
relatively low income, speakers, active builders of Python community,
notable open source contributors, and people in need of childcare. However,

*PyCascades & PyLadies*
To better support aspiring speakers from underrepresented group, we're
partnering with PyLadies chapters in the Pacific Northwest to host CFP
brainstorming sessions. Several PyCascades organizers and speaker mentors
will be in attendance and help facilitate the discussions.
