So, you were making that evening coffee to stay up and finish your PyBay
2018 talk proposal <http://www.pybay.com> that was due tonight at
midnight. Good news - you can get a good night's sleep and procrastinate
until tomorrow (or after April 17). Grace has extended the PyBay talk
submission deadline until *April 21*. However, don't delay too long,
earlier submissions will have an advantage during the reviews.
Here's the full story from Grace:
By popular requests, call for PyBay2018’s
talk proposals has been extended to 4/21 so you can finish your taxes, have
a nice cup of coffee, and write that winning abstract to the 3rd Annual
regional Python conference on August 16-19!
But don't delay, we'll begin reviewing talk submissions before the close
date. And I dare say, chances are better if you submit sooner. Seriously,
you don’t want to miss out on the chance to present at the largest
gathering of Python Devs in the west coast with some of Python’s most
influential contributors such as Raymond Hettinger
(core Python dev), Simon Willison
(co-creator of Django) and Yury Selivanov
(core Python on async/await), Carol Willing
(core Python on JupyterLab)...
This year, the community is particularly excited about 25 or 40-minute
talks on these themes:
dealing with data (DS, ML, AI too)
infrastructure, automation, and testing
dealing with speed and performance
python Fundamentals and Popular Python Libraries
the people side of engineering and community
The talks can be about your opensource projects, how you’ve used Python at
work or on your personal projects, something cool every Python devs should
know about... Our conference website
has more info to help you write a winning proposal, but here are some pro
Get your abstracts in
by April 21! You can go through your corporate approval process later if
your talk is selected.
The wider the audience your talk appeals to, the better.
Don’t get lost in the weeds, but don’t be afraid to delve into the
details--show some code and tell some war stories so developers
tangible to learn.
Consider your audience. 50% of the 450+ attended in 2017 identified
themselves as mid-level devs. 39% senior-level. 25% are women
Bonus: if you’ve thought about delivering a talk at SF Python’s monthly
meetup (more than 150 devs attend each one), we’ll be picking the rest of
the year's meetup talks from the proposals submitted to PyBay.
