PLEASE SUBMIT MORE LAST MINUTE #NBPY PROPOSALS SO I CAN BE DISTRACTED FROM THIS TRAIN WRECK
More talk proposals please and thank you https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2023/cfp
Less than 18 hours left on the North Bay Python CFP. Go ahead, help make our reviewers' choice more difficult/our conference even better.
Do you have your North Bay Python proposals in yet?
There still time, I promise! https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2023/cfp #nbpy #python
It's the last day we're accepting talk proposals! We don't need to extend our deadline, so we won't.
What does that mean? If you want a chance to be on stage at North Bay Python, you need to get a talk in TODAY.
#nbpy #python #cfp #conference #sfba #sonomacounty #PyCon #PyConUS
OK, that's over 8 hours of Getting Things Done today; I think I'm going to call it a day!
✅ Read emails
✅ Read/action browser tabs opened via email (FINALLY done)
✅ Lunch (Yay, I didn't forget to eat, even if it was at ~14:30!)
✅ Maybe rush through a last-minute #FOSSY proposal if I can think of a talk idea relevant to one of their tracks?
✅ Likewise for #nbpy
🔲 Start writing work to-do list

I love the mad rush of proposals over the last two days of a CFP. In a matter of days, #nbpy has going from probably being able to scrape a program together to an embarrassment of riches.
KEEP THEM COMING, SO WE CAN GET THE BEST POSSIBLE EVENT!
LESS THAN TWO DAYS TO GET YOUR TALK PROPOSALS IN.
START WRITING… NOW.
We congratulate @northbaypython on making #NBPy 2023 the second #PHPledge badged event 👏
The team is doing admirable work to creatively reimagine their event in the pandemic era.

Meet Pete the extremely friendly barn cat, part of our trusted venue staff. He'll be around to greet speakers and attendees at North Bay Python.
Get your talk proposals in now, so you can meet him!
Submissions close Friday! https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak #cfp #python #nbpy #CatsOfMastodon
We run an independent review committee at #nbpy, led by the inimitable (and loudly opinionated) @skimbrel.
One rule I'm extremely fond of is that reviewers are instructed to only review based on what they see in the proposal. If a detail is not present, we assume it won't be covered.
Clickbait (acceptance-bait?) doesn't work. Spoilers are encouraged.
Other conferences may be different; you should read their guides before submitting to their conference. #cfp
If there's one piece of #CfP guidance I wish everyone knew:
If a conference puts up a detailed guide about how to maximise your chances of acceptance: read it, and apply that guidance in your proposal. If there are specific things they say you should do, do them! If there are things they say not to do, then don't do them.
Hint 1: #nbpy has a guide! https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
Hint 2: You can still edit your #nbpy proposals :)
Want a chance to sit in our green room and contemplate the rolling hills of Sonoma County, California while you review your #nbpy talk slides?
Now's your chance!
Proposal submissions for North Bay Python 2023 close on Friday, so get your ideas in now! https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak #python
@brianokken Planning on submitting anything to #nbpy? Even if not, can you help spread the word? :)
My least favourite part of running a conference is the weeks leading up to the close of the CFP. A conference is nothing without talks, and talks need to be proposed and reviewed.
Thankfully, it looks like @northbaypython is going to have a full program worth of talks. Now all we need is a pile of last-minute proposals to make sure we can design a program that matches our audience's expectations.
Help us out? Submissions close Friday! https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
It's the last week to get a talk proposal into North Bay Python 2023!
If you want to share your ideas with the world (or at least, whoever joins us in Petaluma in July), let us know on or before Friday.
All the details at https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
Have you submitted a proposal to #nbpy yet?
Oh. You should do that. https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
Reminded that it's both #Eurovision weekend, and the new #Zelda game is out tomorrow… which means I had really better get to work on my @pyconau, @djangocon, @conservancy #FOSSY, and #KiwiPyCon proposals today.
(And everyone else, you should work on your @northbaypython proposals before you get irretrievably distracted too!)
Each one of those CFPs close next week!
It's another great day to think about submitting a talk idea to #NBPy 2023!
We're looking for talks that will inform and inspire our audience of #Python fans. Submissions close next Friday, May 19th.
Details and submissions link is at https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
For your consideration, please enjoy a photo of the SMART train whizzing past our venue.
I just submitted a (brand new) talk to @northbaypython
Let's see if they like it!
It's just over two weeks from May 19th, which means two weeks to get your #nbpy talk proposals in!
Three reasons you might want to get a talk in:
1. We have a glorious semi-outdoor venue, and speakers get a green room where you can ponder the rolling hills of Sonoma County as you relax before your talk.
2. We're a welcoming event, with a friendly audience of everyone from students to core #Python developers.
3. We want to be able to invite you to speak!
We're still accepting talk proposal ideas for North Bay Python!
If you've done something the Python community might like to know of, why not submit a talk? Submissions close May 19th.
All the details, and a link to our form are at: https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak #NBPy #python #PyCon
There's a new way to get to #NBPy from SF!
Take your bike on a sunset ferry ride past the Golden Gate Bridge and Angel Island, hop on the train to Petaluma. Stay the night before riding to #NBPy!
Convenient? Maybe. Astonishingly beautiful? Definitely.
Good morning #PyConUS! Got some free time waiting for a flight? Looking for something to do with your sprint day? Submit a talk to #nbpy!
Our CFP is open today, tomorrow, and every day until May 19th!
Submit a talk: https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2023/cfp
This is our speaker lounge/preparation room, where you can sit and contemplate the rolling green hills of Sonoma County, California as you madly finish writing your slides at #nbpy.
Our #CFP is open! https://pretalx.northbaypython.org/nbpy-2023
Hello #PyConUS! Come find Chris, our conference director, if you want one of our new-season #nbpy stickers, or a handy card with our #CFP and conference dates.
Oh, and our CFP is open: all the details are at https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
Bought some memory retention devices to help promote #nbpy this week.
(Also, maybe submit a talk?)
This is Pete, the barn tiger, yet another of the #nbpy venue cats. He lives just to the left of where our stage will be.
Pete compels you to submit to our CFP: https://2023.northbaypython.org/speak
We care about the impact our work has on the world around us, so we want our conference to be as inclusive as possible. That means:
- COVID precautions, especially indoors
- Financial aid where needed
- Outreach and mentorship for new speakers.
We want to hear from you! #nbpy
I have been officially* reprimanded by a fellow #nbpy organiser for not telling them that there is a friendly venue cat.
I profusely apologise. Want to meet Paulina? Sign up for our newsletter: https://2023.northbaypython.org
This is Paulina, the #nbpy venue cat. She is extremely sociable, and immediately demands scritches and back rubs from anyone who she decides to visit. #CatsOfMastodon #catstodon
Unrelatedly, I'm really pleased to have a health and safety (see: COVID) policy in place for #nbpy, even before we open our CFP. We're not doing as much as I'd like (small event; tests/vaccine verification costs a lot), but we've got a lot in there that I'm very happy with.
Why not take a look and see what a small, community-focused event can do: https://2023.northbaypython.org/health-and-safety-policy @phpledge #nbpy #python #phppledge
Oh, I guess we also have a website now: https://2023.northbaypython.org
We're still in soft-launch mode (until early next week, probably), but we're starting to look for sponsors for @northbaypython's 2023 edition.
