<p>Our venue, the Mystic Theatre in Downtown Petaluma, is a beautiful example of an early 1900s Vaudeville theatre. You can find over 50 different food and drink options a short walk away, and the nearest hotel is only a block away.</p>

<p>North Bay Python is a single-track conference with a carefully curated set of talks representing the diverse Python community and their different areas of interest.</p>

<p>Our goal is to keep prices as low as possible. That means we won't be catering lunch. Instead, you can look forward to extra-long lunch breaks you can use to explore all of the great food options around the venue.</p>
 

	
 

	
 
<h2>Petaluma, California</h2>
 

	
 
<p>North Bay Python's home is Petaluma, a delightfully quaint dairy town, nestled on a river at the southern edge of California's Wine Country. We've got beautiful scenery right on our doorstep, and we're less than an hour's drive from San Francisco over the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 

	
 
<p>The Mystic is not the only local example of early 1900s architecture, either: Downtown is full of great examples of Victorian-era buildings that survived the 1906 earthquake. Just down the road, you'll find the center of the maker movement and a thriving craft brewery scene.</p>
 

	
 

	
 
<h3>Getting Here</h3>
 

	
 
<h4>By Car</h4>
 

	
 
<p>If you're driving up, Downtown Petaluma is at exit 472 on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. All parking is free in Petaluma, including in the undercover garages at Keller St and Theatre Square. Both garages are in short walking distance of the Mystic.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>By Bus</h4>
 

	
 
<p>Public transit to Petaluma is not great. You can take the 101 bus operated by Golden Gate Transit from downtown San Francisco, or south from Santa Rosa. Depending on sponsorship, we hope to run a free shuttle with BART and Caltrain connections for people from further out of town.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>By Plane</h4>
 

	
 
<p>If you're coming from out of the area, you may want to consider Sonoma County Airport (STS). STS is 30 minutes out of Petaluma, and has nonstop flights to most major west coast cities. If you can't make it to STS, you can also try San Francisco (SFO) or Oakland (OAK) international airports.</p>

<h2>Travel and Accommodation</h2>
 

	
 
<h3>Staying Here</h3>
 
<p>The Golden Gate Bridge is known to San Franciscans as being approximately 8,000 miles long behind the fog, so few ever cross up into the North Bay. If you actually try driving here, it's not very difficult. There are many ways to get to Petaluma and, when you get here, you'll have a nice place to stay that fits your budget.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Petaluma also has hotels! We're arranging deals with some of the best local hotels in the area &ndash; the closest is just one block away. We'll share details with you when conference tickets go on sale.</p>

We are seeking speakers of all experience levels to contribute to our inaugural conference. The CFP will close on September 29, 2017.</p>
 

	
 
<p>North Bay Python is a single-track event featuring two days of presentations by members of the community. The vast majority of the conference program will come from people who propose talks in our CFP process. Whether you use Python professionally, as a hobbyist, or are just excited about Python or programming and open source, we'd love to hear from you.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Our program committee, which is responsible for reviewing proposals, is interested in building a program that reflects the diversity of people who are using Python. Never given a presentation before but excited to share? We're here to help you craft a proposal and can refer you to quality resources for making your first conference talk. Not sure what to talk about, but interested in trying? We've got ideas for presentations we'd love to see and we're happy to share them with you!</p>
 

	
 
<p>In order to ensure a balanced program, we are proactively doing outreach to new and experienced speakers alike. We are also including a blind review phase in our <a href="/program/selection-process" title="North Bay Python proposal selection process">selection process</a> in order to combat bias. Our goal is to have no less than 33% of our speakers be not-men, ideally 50%, and to reflect the racial diversity of United States and Bay Area demographics.</p>
