The final deadline is Saturday at 11:59:59 pm. Here's a message from Grace,
with some suggestions for potential speakers:


*I am so thrilled to report that there is already a lot of excitement for
PyBay2018, <https://pybay.com/> the 3rd Annual SF Bay Area Python
Conference this August 16-19. Confirmed speakers at this point include: -
Raymond Hettinger <https://twitter.com/raymondh> (core Python dev)- Simon
Willison <https://simonwillison.net/>(co-creator of Django) - Yury
Selivanov <https://github.com/1st1>(core Python on async/await)- Carol
Willing <https://twitter.com/willingcarol?lang=en> (core Python on
JupyterLab)500+ Python developers are expected to attend, and 95% of them
live in the SF Bay Area. It's going to be epic! Don’t miss out and join in
on the fun! Show off what you are doing with Python by submitting a talk.
CFP closes this Sat 4/21 at midnight! <https://pybay.com/>We’ve had some
questions along the lines of what makes a good talk, what kind of talks we
still need… Here are some examples: - Militarizing Your Backyard with
Python: Computer Vision and the Squirrel Hordes
<https://us.pycon.org/2012/schedule/presentation/267/> - Talk Video
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPgqfnKG_T4>- Logging and Testing and
Debugging, Oh My!
<https://speakerdeck.com/pybay/2017-albert-sweigart-logging-and-testing> -
Talk Video
Type uWSGI; press enter; what happens? - Talk Video
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sFkbndLVPg>- Kubernetes for Pythonistas -
Talk Video <https://youtu.be/u_iAXzy3xBA>- Hacking Classic Nintendo Games
with Python - Talk Video <https://youtu.be/v75rNdPukuI>It also would be
great to have more selections on: - The people side of engineering -
interview, building teams, becoming a better dev...- Infrastructure /
DevOps / Web Dev- Tensorflow- PyPi and other alternative runtimes-
Experiences with static typing and PythonTalks can be practical, fun, or
both! They have a broad appeal. More importantly, the reviewers can tell
from your abstract concrete things attendees can expect to learn and
implement, right the way. More tips on writing that winning abstract here.
<http://www.pybay.com/speaking-at-pybay/>Looking forward to seeing you
and/or your team in the not so distant future!  Early bird tickets
available 4/24 <https://ti.to/sf-python/pybay2018>!*
