PyCon ZA 2020 will take place on the 8th & 9th of October, 2020. This year, due to the ongoing uncertainty of when conference facilities will be allowed to open, we will be running PyCon ZA as an online event.
We are looking for the following presentations: - Keynotes (45 minute long talks on a subject of general interest) - Talks (30 minute long talks on more specific topics)
If you would like to give a presentation, please register at https://za.pycon.org/ and submit your proposal, following the instructions at https://za.pycon.org/talks/submit-talk/ . We have a number of tracks available, including: Data Science, Teaching and Learning with Python, Web, Scientific Computing, Testing and Other (which includes all talks that don't fall under the mentioned tracks). We hope to notify accepted presenters by no later than the 31st of August 2020.
Speakers will be expected to be available after the presentation for a short Q&A session. Shared sessions are also possible. The presentations will be in English.
PyCon ZA offers a mentorship program for inexperienced speakers. If you would like assistance preparing your submission, email email@example.com with a rough draft of your talk proposal and we'll find a suitable experienced speaker to act as a mentor.
If you want to present something else at PyCon ZA, please contact the organising committee at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We’re researching which software platforms will be most suitable for running PyCon ZA. As soon as we have finalised this decision, we’ll make it public and update potential presenters. If you have experience with presenting on particular platforms, we'd love to hear from you at email@example.com .
