Django Weekend Cardiff <https://djangoweekend.org> - the first-ever Django conference in the UK -  will  take place from the 7th to the 9th February 2014, for three days of talks, tutorials, code sprints and clinics.
The conference is Django-focused, but all aspects of Python fall within its remit.

We invite members of the Python/Django communities to submit their talk and other proposals for the event: <https://djangoweekend.org/programme/>.


Do you have something to share with the rest of the community? Proposals on any subject are welcomed, at any level of technical expertise. Tell us about your experiments, discoveries, solutions, achievements and other adventures.


The deadline for proposals is the end of Monday 6th January 2014, GMT. Feel free to submit more than one!

Workshops & tutorials

The first day of this event will be dedicated to tutorials, workshops and demonstrations, some of which will be open the wider public.

Can you lead a tutorial, on a Python or Django topic? Can you demonstrate the power of Django to people who don't know about it? Do you have an application or product or service that you'd like to showcase?

Just let us know: <info at djangoweekend.org>. We're open to all kinds of suggestions, and especially ideas we haven't even thought of.

Sprints & clinics

No Django or Python event would be complete without code sprints. There'll be a Django sprint, led by at least a couple of core Django developers.

We'd like to get as many people as possible to stay for the sprints, and particularly new people who haven't taken part before. To encourage people to join in:

* we'll be supporting the sprints with a "Don't be afraid to commit" workshop on the tutorials day, aimed specially at those who would like to take part but aren't sure they have the skills - yet

* we'll be holding code clinics alongside the sprints, where you can put your questions or problems to a Python or Django expert

A particular clinic might run for minutes 45 or an hour or so. If you like to offer a clinic on a particular subject, or even a general one, please get in touch: <info at djangoweekend.org>. We'd love to hear from you.

On behalf of Django Weekend Cardiff,
