## Now accepting talk proposals for North Bay Python 2019
 
## Third annual North Bay Python to take place in Petaluma, California on November 2-3, 2019
 

	
 
**Monday, July 1, 2019**—The North Bay Python team is excited to announce [we're now seeking proposals to speak](https://2019.northbaypython.org/program/call-for-proposals) at North Bay Python 2019. We are seeking speakers of all experience levels to contribute to our second annual conference. The deadline to submit a proposal is August 9, 2019.
 
**Tuesday, April 23, 2019**—The North Bay Python team is excited to announce were on for our third annual conference! North Bay Python 2019 will be hosted the first weekend of November 2nd and 3rd at the Mystic Theater in downtown Petaluma, an hour north of the Golden Gate.
 

	
 
North Bay Python, taking place the weekend of November 2 & 3, 2019, is a single-track event featuring two days of presentations by members of the community. Every presentation in the program, except for the keynotes, will come from people who propose talks. 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.
 
Hundreds of Pythonistas and the Python-curious will gather for the conference in a historic music venue, at the intersection of Sonoma, Marin, and Napa County. Some will travel solo, others may bring their families along to enjoy local hikes, museums, wine tours, windswept beaches, and lots of kid-friendly activities.
 

	
 
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!
 
Details about travel, lodging, accommodation, and much more can be found on our website. In July, we will begin seeking proposals from people interested in speaking at the conference. In August, we’ll begin selling tickets.
 

	
 
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 [selection process](https://2019.northbaypython.org/program/selection-process) in order to combat bias. We are aiming for gender parity, representation of people with disabilities, and ethnic diversity reflective of United States and Bay Area demographics.
