In case folks are taking requests, I'd love to hear about:

* status report on core workflow improvements
* how typing has been received and what's next (e.g. more integration
into the compiler, multiple dispatch)
* Python in the embedded/-ish space (e.g. MicroPython, BBC MicroBit,
RaspberryPi, android, iOS, ARM)
* status of alternate implementations and tool chains:
  - pyjion
  - pyston
  - pypy
  - jython
  - ironpython
  - cython
  - numba
  - others?

FWIW, I've offered to present the following (as a last resort <wink>):

* about C OrderedDict
* about my Multi-core Python project
* the successor to PEP 406 ("Improved Encapsulation of Import State")
