As the poster session chair, I’ve been watching poster proposals come in for PyCon over the past several weeks. I was very happy with the posters last year, but this year we have a truly amazing collection. Since the submission deadline has been extended until Tuesday, January 25, (which is also the Early Bird registration deadline) I won’t name specific posters yet, but the submissions cover the spectrum.
There are posters on Python in the sciences and bio-informatics, on Python for education and citizenship, on new packages and uses of Python, and even a couple of posters that showcase Python as a tool for hardware hacking “makers”. And every single one of them looks great. Every. Single. One.
As I recall the excitement in the room last year for the first PyCon poster session ever, I can only smile as I think of what the reaction will be to this collection. I promise you, people will be wishing that the poster session could last all day to give them enough time to inspect each poster and chat with every presenter.
Better yet, you still have a chance to join this impressive company. If you want to submit a poster, just swing by the poster session CFP on the PyCon site by Tuesday to submit a poster proposal.
See you at PyCon!
