Now Seeking PyGotham Program Committee Members
Last year’s PyGotham had a great program committee of four organizers and eight volunteers. Unfortunately due to the constrained timeline of the 2017 conference and everyone’s individual schedules, we had only a few chances to meet, and never as the full group. The major consequence of this is that the final talk decisions were effectively made by a smaller group, mostly conference staff. We failed, by way of logistics, in our mission to make PyGotham as community focused as possible. This year we aim to do better.
Diversity at PyGotham
This year, for the first time, PyGotham is asking everyone who has submitted a talk to our Call for Proposals to fill out a brief demographic survey to help support our efforts to ensure that PyGotham is representative of the Python community we believe in, welcoming to all our conference attendees, and helps to broaden and advance the conversation on diversity and representation that the wider software development community is undertaking.
The Call for Proposals is now open!
Submissions are now closed.
