Pycon Africa is going virtual in August 2020!
We’d love to have you share your talk with the African Python community. If your talk is accepted you will be asked to submit a recorded version of it, which will be posted to our website and Youtube channel.
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. If you need inspiration, take a look at our talks from last year. This year we are accepting proposals for talks (typically 30-45mins) and tutorials (typically 3 hours.)
CFP Opens: 14 May 2020
CFP Closes: 5 June 2020
Decisions for accepted talks: 15th June 2020
Conference Dates: 4th - 8th August 2020
PyCon Africa will be organized into four distinct tracks, namely PyData, Web / DevOps, General Python, and Python Community. Please classify your proposal under one of these tracks by including the relevant category in the tags at the end of your application. You can have a look at them in detail below.
