[CentralOH] PyOhio 2013 Proposal Deadline is Rapidly Approaching! (June 1st)

I would really like to contribute and help. Getting a little lost in the
emails, so unsure who I should talk to.

I would def. be interested in helping with the Python for adults and Python
for youth classes. Also thought about doing some tutorials, but unsure how
qualified I am. I have only been programming professionally in multiple
languages for a little over five years. Python for two. I come from
art./illustrator background and learned programming as a way to make games.

I would like to propose a talk about http://kivy.org/#home and another
about Gevent.  I would be interested on giving a tutorial (building a quick
website with cherrypy.)

Please let me know what I would need to do. I really do like the group, I
love python, and would like to get more involved.

Talk to you later,

Thank you,
John Santiago
