Workshop: Talk Proposal Writing for PyCon 2013

  • Aug 28, 2012 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ladies! Ever thought about speaking? Want to give speaking at PyCon a shot, but not sure what to talk about?

Even if you have a tiny inkling that you'd want to speak, beginner level or advanced, come to our workshop to get help brainstorming ideas & learn what makes a good proposal!

Join us with help from previous years PyCon speakers & current Program Committee members (e.g. the folks that review proposals) to ideate, write, and submit your proposal to speak, give a tutorial, or a poster session at PyCon 2013.

Who's dropping by?
Alex Gaynor (Django core committer, DSF board member, speaker)
