PyCon Australia is an excellent opportunity to share experience and knowledge with like-minded Python developers from all walks of life -- we attract professional developers from industry, government, science and education, along with enthusiast and student developers. Presentations can be targeted at all skill levels, on any topic related to Python programming.

This year, we're welcoming DjangoCon AU under the PyCon Australia umbrella, it'll run on Friday 5 July, before the main conference. Every Django-related proposal we receive in the PyCon Australia CFP will also be considered as part of the DjangoCon AU programme.

Our OpenStack Miniconf is running a separate CFP, and first-round submissions close on April 9. Details can be found at the OpenStack Miniconf CFP site.

If you're a first-time Python developer, don't be afraid to submit a presentation -- we're a community-driven conference, and we have a focus on building the next generation of Python programmers.

We can't wait to see your proposals.
