<h3>The Team</h3>
 
<p><a href="https://twitter.com/skimbrel">Sam</a> is a Python developer and distributed-systems “enthusiast” hailing from Seattle by birth, New York by nurture, and the Bay Area by choice. About five years ago he attended PyCon US for the first time and hasn’t been able to break the habit since; after making the jump from audience to stage in 2014 and speaking regularly at PyCons and other events around the world, he was thrilled to sign on with the North Bay Python team when invited by Chris and Josh. Sam currently works at Nuna building healthcare data infrastructure for the U.S. Medicaid and Medicare programs and resides in Oakland with his husband Kameron.</p>

He’s been writing open source software for over a decade as well as working in various different parts of the technology industry, and currently works at Eventbrite. He regularly speaks at Python (and other) events around the world, and has a keen interest in building communities and inclusivity.</p>

<h2>Call for Proposals is now open for North Bay Python 2017</h2>
 
<h2>Now accepting talk proposals for North Bay Python 2017</h2>
 

	
 
<p><span class="date">Monday, August 21, 2017</span> -- The North Bay Python team is excited to announce that the <a href="/program/call-for-proposals">call for proposals</a> (CFP) is now open! 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 or 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">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>
 

	
 
<p>Feel free to reach out with any questions, comments, or ideas you have. You can find us on <a href="https://twitter.com/northbaypython">Twitter</a>, <a href="https://facebook.com/northbaypython">Facebook</a>, and <a href="http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=%23nbpy">IRC</a>, or you can <a href="mailto:program@northbaypython.org">email us</a>. And, please, get started today! The call for proposals closes on September 29, 2017.</p>

<h2>North Bay Python joins Software Freedom Conservancy</h2>
 

	
 
<p><span class="date">Bloop, August Bleep, 2017</span> -- We are proud to announce that North Bay Python is now a member project of <a href="https://sfconservancy.org">Software Freedom Conservancy</a>, a 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to ethical technology and the development and promotion free and open source software. Conservancy will act as our fiscal sponsor, allowing our team to operate without managing our own corporate structure and administrative services.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Conservancy is home to many popular <a href="https://sfconservancy.org/projects/current/">free and open source software projects</a>, like <a href="http://www.seleniumhq.org/">Selenium</a>, <a href="https://www.phpmyadmin.net/">phpMyAdmin</a>, <a href="https://twistedmatrix.com/trac/">Twisted</a>, and <a href="https://www.gnome.org/outreachy/">Outreachy</a>, some of which run their own events. North Bay Python has the distinct honor of being the first member project that is exclusively focused on organizing community events.</p>
 

	
 
<p>We couldn't be more excited. We're celebrating by donating five free tickets to Outreachy interns and will be promoting member projects relevant to the Python community at the conference. Interested Outreachy interns should <a href="mailto:outreach@northbaypython.org">contact us</a>. We'll also have discounted tickets available for active financial supporters of Software Freedom Conservancy - details will be announced when tickets go on sale.</p>
