Conway, Arkansas - October 27, 2012


pyArkansas 2012 is now accepting proposals for talks and tutorials for the October 27th conference.

Proposal deadline: Monday, October 1, 2012.

Who should submit a proposal?

Anyone with any level of experience with Python is welcome to and can submit a proposal to speak at pyArkansas. Our attendees always have varying levels of experience with Python, so our speakers should too. You don't need previous speaking experience either; in fact, conferences like pyArkansas are are great place for first-timers to give a talk.

What kind of sessions can I give?

We have two session types at pyArkansas: talks and tutorials. We typically do tutorials in the morning, which can be hands-on, and talks in the afternoon.


Tutorials are typically two hours long, and can be on just about any topic Pythonic. Keep in mind it does need to be something that would be of interest to at least 10-20 other conference attendees, though. In the past we have had tutorials on Blender, Django, Sphinx, Intro/Intermediate Python, the Python standard library, and others.


Talks can be either 25 or 50 minutes long, including about 5-10 minutes at the end for Q&A. Got a cool project you've been working on the uses Python? Want to educate others on a Python library? Things like this and anything else Pythonic are what we want to hear about.
