Summer nears its end and Montréal-Python is coming back from vacation. Before going back to school or to work, come and tell us what new Pythonic things during the summer. As always, we are looking for passionate people who want to share with the community. Be it about a project that you have built or a library that you learned, send us your talk proposal to mtlpyteam@googlegroups.com . Talks duration can be anywhere between 5 and 20 minutes. We accept all reasonable proposals until the program is complete. We can't wait to read your proposal!

Montréal-Python 79, Quadratic Judo, will be live streamed on our Youtube Channel on August 24 at 5:30 PM EST.

As usual, we want to bring your attention to the Montréal-Python code of conduct. We remind you that we are an open community and actively invite people of all minorities to come and share their experiences and their knowledge. To align with our values, we also remember those wise words by the Python Software Foundation:

In silence we are complicit. To eradicate racism, xenophobia, and all other forms of inequality, we must take action. It is our responsibility to use our platforms to amplify the voices of the oppressed and marginalized.

We ask today – and always – that the Python community comes together in support of the Black community, and makes Black voices heard.

Black lives matter.

And finally, PyBay 2020 moved to a fully online conference taking place next weekend, August 15 and 16. They offer free tickets to women and to members of many minorities. Check out their website for all the details:
