### The North Bay Python 2017 CFP is open!
 

	
 
We've got lots of good information and resources below that you should read, but in case you've already read it and want to dive in now:

</div>
 

	
 
If you've never presented at a conference before and think you might like to try it, we want to hear from you! The program committee is *very* much interested in encouraging and supporting new speakers, and we will be able to provide detailed feedback and work with you to develop your proposal and talk content so you can give the best talk possible.
 

	
 
In the interest of transparency, we have documented our [selection process](/program/selection-process "North Bay Python proposal selection process"). Portions of this page were drawn from ideas seen on [DjangoCon EU](https://djangocon.eu "DjangoCon Europe"), [SeaGL](https://seagl.org "Seattle GNU Linux"), [Fog City Ruby](http://www.fogcityruby.com/speak/ "Fog City Ruby"), and others. Thanks to all for their inspiration and permission to borrow!

## Topics
 

	
 
**We are a single track conference. This means that your talk needs to hold the attention of beginners and experienced developers alike.**
 

	
 
This doesn't mean that every talk needs to be a beginner's talk. If you're talking about advanced concepts, people who are new to Python or your library should come away excited about the possibilities, and know what concepts they need to learn to get there.
 

	
 
This is a list of topics we think might go well in the North Bay Python program, but it is by no means exhaustive. If you have a talk idea on a subject not listed here and you think it fits well with our community and mission, we would love to <a href="mailto:program@northbaypython.org" title="program@northbaypython.org">hear about it</a>!

If you have an idea (or don't!) and want to speak, here's a very rough process of what you should do next:
 

	
 
+ Brainstorm or [mind map](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mind_map "Wikipedia Entry on Mind Mapping") to expand upon your ideas or knowledge in search of a general topic
 
+ Write a paragraph or two, or some bullet points, to outline the core concepts you want to communicate and what people might learn from your talk
 
+ Get someone you trust to read your notes and tell you what they think they'd learn
