> Wondering out aloud, should we consider having an EduPy
conference separately that will cater to students and education ? I know
this is borderline ridiculous, but this way we can up the quality at PyCon
India and still manage to bring in students into the community at large in
a layered fashion. There are a lot of student volunteers who can run the
show, provided a few of us here are ready to show solidarity.

> First timers are not allowed to present tutorials.

Consider getting the Keynotes to run a tutorial session themselves. I have
seen PyCon APAC do that successfully and i think thats a model we can try
to emulate.
