Reminder that today is the last day to submit talk proposals. Below is a
message from the primary organizer (some of you know Grace already who also
runs the SF Python Meetup <http://meetup.com/sfpython>). The earlybird
tickets did start selling yesterday.


If your company uses Python as part of your stack, or if your software tool
supports the Python ecosystem, you’ll want to know about a new opportunity
for your engineers to learn from industry leaders, showcase what you do,
and network for your next hire.

SF Python <http://sfpython.org/> is organizing PyBay <http://pybay.com>,
the first Python Conference in SF, August 19-21. We will have about 35
talks, with Raymond Hettinger and Jessica Mckellar
<http://web.mit.edu/jesstess/www/> delivering keynotes; 4 tracks; 400-600
devs; and all in 1 weekend. This is a regional version of the always
sold-out PyCon <https://twitter.com/hashtag/pycon2016?src=hash>. The
difference? All local devs, more intimate, a dedicated hallway track for
all-weekend-long hacking/discussions/open space sessions with like-minded
engineers, no traveling cost involved, and yoga classes + free massages to
keep you in top shape (if sponsor secured). More details at

Would you consider allocating budget for your team to attend PyBay
<http://pybay.com/> and encourage your team to submit talks? The call for
proposal <http://www.pybay.com/#!call-for-proposals/sonxv> ends on June 17.

Aside from sponsorship opportunities
<http://www.pybay.com/#!sponsorship/z49gr>, you may find the partner talk
slot, massage, and conference backpack options interesting. The partner
talk slot opportunity will probably sell out, so act on it now or let
Conference Chair gracelaw at mac.com know if you are thinking about it. She is
also happy to work with you on other suggestions to maximize your exposure.

A limited number of early bird tickets will go on sale around June 16. Sign
up at the bottom of the conference website home page to receive updates.

Thanks sooo much for considering and please do pass this along to people
whom you think can benefit! If you are the first to help us get press on
Hacker News, TechCrunch or similar sites, send links to gracelaw at mac.com to
receive a free O’Reilly ebook.
