CFP closed at  June 01, 2019 11:06 UTC

The first-ever pan-African meeting of the Python programming community

CFP Description

There are many reasons why you should submit your proposal to PyCon Africa. You could talk about new and cutting edge uses of Python programming, or features of well-known tools. You could also tell us real-world Python use cases, as well as presenting your own industrial or research Python-powered project. As long as the presentation is interesting and potentially useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program. This year we are accepting proposals for talks (typically 30-45mins) and tutorials (typically 3 hours.)
