I'm honored to be an organizer on the program committee for PyGotham 2017 this year, and I encourage you all to submit a talk to our little conference. PyGotham will be held October 6, 7, and 8 in New York City, and the Call for Proposals is open until July 18.
PyGotham attendees are diverse, come from varied backgrounds and skill levels, and have lives and interests beyond Python programming. Accordingly, the topics at PyGotham often vary a bit more widely than other programming language conferences. In the past, we have hosted talks about subjects from detecting sarcasm in audio files of speech, to open source stenography; from game programming to what we can learn about code review from J.R.R. Tolkien (sort of).
The threads connecting all these talks together are Python and New York, and the people interested and involved in both of those. If you're a member of either of these communities, if you think the PyGotham audience would like to hear your talk, then we want to see your proposal
