I'd like to invite you, individually and as a group, to PyOhio this July.

PyOhio, the first annual Python programming miniconference for Ohio and surrounding areas, will take place Saturday, July 26, in Columbus, OH.

The conference is free of charge. It will include scheduled talks, Lightning Talks, and unconference-style Open Spaces.

To get more information or to volunteer, see http://pyohio.org.

Also, consider proposing a talk! I, for one, would love to learn more about how I can put my Python abilities to work in and for Ubuntu.

PyOhio: Call for Presentations

PyOhio invites all interested people to present scheduled talks. All presentations are expected to last 40 minutes with a 10 minute question-and-answer period. PyOhio will accept abstracts covering any area of Python programming. A classroom area with computers will also be available for possible hands-on sessions.

All presentations proposals should submit abstracts no longer than 500 words in length. Abstracts must include the title, summary of the presentation, the expertise level targeted, and a brief description of the area of Python programming it relates to.

All proposals should be emailed to <cfp@pyohio.org> for review.

The submission deadline will be June 1, 2008. Accepted proposals will be notified by July 1.

If you have trouble submitting a proposal, or have specific questions about proposals please email Mat Kovach <matkovach@gmail.com> or call at 216-798-3397.

Formally proposed talks aside, we're going to have Open Spaces, too, and there simply *must* be at least one Ubuntu open-space session.

Thanks! Hope to see you there!
