We are happy to announce our next meeting, Montréal-Python 44: Conditional Brief, will be held at our friends' offices from Busbud on Monday, March 10th.

As always, we'd especially love to hear from new speakers. If you haven't given a talk at Montréal-Python before, consider giving a 5 or 10 minute lightning talk!

Some suggestions for topics:

  • Give a beginner's introduction to a Python library you've been using
  • Talk about a project you're working on
  • Unit testing or continuous integration or Python documentation tools!
  • Tell us about a Python performance problem you've run into and how you solved it!
  • The standard Python library is full of amazing things. Have you learned how multiprocessing or threading or * GUI programming works recently? Tell us about it!
  • Explain how to get started with Django in 5 minutes!

Lightning talks are a great way to get started with speaking -- they're easy to prepare, and a great way to tell everyone about something you're excited about. There's no such thing as a too basic topic -- if you give a 5 minute introduction to Django, there will definitely be people in the audience who have never used it before and will find it helpful.

If you discovered or learned something that you find interesting, we'd love to help you let others learn about it!

We're also looking for proposals for 20 or 45 minute talks, as usual.

Send your proposals to mtlpyteam@googlegroups.com.
