One thing I found heartening is college students giving talks in PyCon. I
think it is wonderful, both for them as well as the Python community.

However, it is also true that some of those talks are quite weak and not
suitable for a paid conference.

The solution can be to create a separate student (or beginner) track with
smaller talk durations. These talks can be 15 minute slots. This retains
the space for novice participation but also makes a clear distinction for
those attending. Student tracks are a common feature in many top technical

Just a thought.
