Teachers and education folks!
Pitch an idea for a talk!

We want to hear about your experiences with Python in & outside the classroom. What works? What did you try that utterly failed?

Come share with a ridiculously supportive community!

To be clear, this is how *everyone* does it. It feels scary but the pro-tip is the time it takes for procurement to get their act together is longer than you need to write those features and get complant. twitter.com/_shahedk/status/12

Since PyCon 2020 was cancelled this year, the Python Software Foundation needs help covering a shortfall in funds.

I'll match up to $1,024 of donations. Just reply to this thread with the amount you donated.

Coworker: Have you tried mocking things?
Me: *at code* You're not even a real python.

It seems like the Model Trademark Guidelines are something that more Open Source projects should know about. modeltrademarkguidelines.org/i Thanks to @pchestek for the link to this one.

I spent over a year of my presidency of the DSF developing trademark policies for @djangoproject. I'm certain most FLOSS users don't recognise how important it is. I'm not sure of Open Usage Commons is the right approach, but I'm glad that the issue is getting attention.

Worst case, you don't get accepted, but you get experience in writing/proposing talks 💚

If you need help, reach out to our mentors and they will help you!
