Everyone who is interested is encouraged to submit a proposal, regardless of experience level. PyCon Ghana thrives on having talks ranging from introductory to advanced. If you are reading this, and you are interested in speaking at PyCon Ghana 2018, we want you to submit a proposal.
We are interested in a range of topics/frameworks including:

  • Web development,
  • Design,
  • Data Science
  • Networks
  • Python in Education
  • Python Community,
  • Python Application in various industries
and anything else or Experience related to Python you, might want to share with us.

Talks

These are the traditional talk sessions given during conference.

Most talks are 30 minutes long, but we do offer a limited number of 45-minute slots for important topics that promise to benefit from a more extensive treatment. Talks have a 45 minute slot. The talk should be 30 minutes leaving 10 minutes for questions and 5 minutes for moving between venues.
There is no official restriction on the topic that you propose for a talk session. Talks about Python or the Python community are most likely to line up with the interests of PyCon Ghana's audience, and a key consideration that the talk selection committee will be thinking about is your talk’s ability to draw an audience. We observe a limit of one talk per presenter. You may propose more than one, but the committee will ask you to choose only one talk if more than one of your proposals is accepted.

PyCon Ghana is dedicated to featuring a diverse and inclusive mix of speakers in the lineup.

All speakers are expected to have read and adhere to the conference Code of Conduct. In particular for speakers: slide contents and spoken material should be appropriate for a professional audience including people of many different backgrounds. Sexual language and imagery are not appropriate, and neither are language or imagery that denigrate or demean people based on race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, or body size.
