PyCon USA is looking for people to come and give talks, tutorials and poster sessions. So whether you are one of those people who just loves to talk or you’re more of a visual person, there’s a place for you. For the talkers, and I mean serious talkers, I would recommend the tutorial or regular talk sessions. If you’re not a talker or you want to get better, then you’d want to choose a 30-minute talk, a poster session or just get your feet wet with a lightning talk, the last of which you’d have to sign up for onsite.
Don’t know what to talk about? PyCon’s got your back. They wrote a whole article on the topic. There’s also an article on tutorial topics and a brand new article about the poster session. So if you don’t know what to talk about, those posts should get your creative juices flowing.
Regardless of what you choose, you only have until October 12th to get your submission in. What are you waiting for? Christmas? That’s too late! Get on this right now!
Note: If you just hate talking, join the PyCon organizers mailing list and help in some other way. It’s not tax deductible, but it might give you warm fuzzies.
