Recently I’ve been feeling like I've been missing the chance to hear about cool technical projects people are working on in a depth not possible at a CLUG meeting because of time constraints. Many years ago, AUUG used to run a weekend "summer conference" that was almost free and addressed some of this issue. That conference died a natural death when linux.conf.au got big, but I think maybe it's time to bring that back. So, I am running a simple w...

PyCon Australia 2016 is pleased to announce that its Call for Proposals is now open! See https://2016.pycon-au.org/cfp for all the details, or read on.

Proposals are being accepted for the main conference weekend, and for the preceding specialist tracks: DjangoCon AU; the Python in Education seminar; the Science & Data miniconf; and the Internet-of-Things miniconf.
The conference this year will be held from Friday 12th August to Tuesday 16th August. Miniconfs and special events are on Friday followed by the main conference on Saturday and Sunday. The final two days are developer sprints.
Important Dates
Proposal submission deadline: Sunday, 8th May
Proposal acceptance: Sunday, 29th May
PyCon Australia attracts professional developers from all walks of life, including industry, government, and science, as well as enthusiast and student developers. We’re looking for proposals for presentations and tutorials on any aspect of Python programming, at all skill levels from novice to advanced.
Presentation subjects may range from reports on open source, academic or commercial projects; or even tutorials and case studies. If a presentation is interesting and useful to the Python community, it will be considered for inclusion in the program. We're especially interested in short presentations that will teach conference-goers something new and useful. Can you show attendees how to use a module? Explore a Python language feature? Package an application?
For more information, please visit https://2016.pycon-au.org/cfp.
Thanks very much to all prospective speakers from the program committee -- we really appreciate it!

Also google "tmux" for an awesome console experience.
