PyOhio is one of the largest Python conferences in the midwest, and the largest entirely free Python conference anywhere. PyOhio 2012 will take place Saturday-Sunday, July 28-29, 2012 at the Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. A variety of activities are planned, including tutorials, scheduled talks, Lightning Talks, Open Spaces and Sprints.
This year we doubled the number of talk proposals from last year, and will be trying to add a fourth track of talks and tutorials.
If Registration is Free, Why Should I Register?
The more people that register in advance, the better we can plan for space, snacks, drinks, etc.

Since the conference is free to attend, and volunteer-run, we rely on generous sponsors for things we have to pay for, like the venue, refreshments, printing, and videography. If you can sponsor the conference, or put us in touch with someone who might become a sponsor, respond back to this email with your contact information.
