Workshops for PyCon India 2019
Workshops are an important part of the PyCon India. Hands on learning is as important as talks for a fulfilling conference experience. Like talks, workshops are also conducted by the members of the Python community. To streamline the selection of topics for the workshops, we use a process similar to the Talks CFP.
Here are some notable points about workshops at PyConIndia 2019:
- CFP Opens: 3rd May
- CFP Closes: 1st July
- Schedule Announcement: 1st August
- Presented on: 14th October
- Venue: IITM Research Park
- Six workshops across three tracks
- Duration: 2.5 hours
- Up to 40 attendees per workshop
Anyone can propose for conducting a workshop. Any topic of interest to the Python community is okay - the workshop should help attendees learn a new skill, technology or library. To get a sense of the topics from last year, take a look here.
All the facilities needed to conduct the workshop will be provided. This includes plug points, projectors etc. Attendees will be bringing their own laptops.
In the CFP proposal, please mention an outline of the workshop and the prerequisites. And the slides if possible. Also mention if you have conducted the same workshop before.
The workshop should be interspersed with proper hands-on exercises. After the workshop people should be ramped up on the workshop topic, and should be able to take it forward themselves.
