The first brainstorming session is set for 3pm this Saturday at Produce Row (2nd and SE Oak). Feel free to drop by, have a beverage, and help brainstorm even if you don't want to submit a talk for PyCon! If the weather forecast holds, there may even be sun on the patio...

It would be amazing if we had some Portland representation at PyCon this year! The deadline for talk submission this year is October 12th - that's 3 weeks from tomorrow.

Remember, you don't have to have a completely formed talk in order to submit, you just need an idea that you can flesh out by March if that idea gets accepted.
> It would also be great if anyone who has submitted and/or given talks at conferences before could join us and help us through the process. I've submitted to a conference once as a co-speaker, but it wasn't accepted, so the submitting (with Selena Deckelmann holding my hand the whole way ;)) is as much as I know about the process.
