The period for submitting tutorial proposals for Pycon 2009 (US) is open and will continue through Friday, October 31th. This year features two "pre-conference" days devoted to tutorials on Wednesday March 25 & Thursday March 26 in Chicago. This allows for more classes than ever.
Tutorials are 3-hours long on a specific topic of your choice. Last year we featured classes on Learning Python, Web Development, Scientific Computing, and many more. Class size varied from 10 to over 60 students. The extended time spent in class allows teachers to cover a lot of material while allowing for interaction with students.
The full Call for Tutorial Proposals, including submission details, an example proposal as well as a template, is available at < http://us.pycon.org/2009/tutorials/proposals/%3E.
Tutorial selections will be announced in early December to give you time to prepare your class and PyCon will compensate instructors US$1,500 per tutorial.
If you have any questions, please contact email@example.com.
