No, please proceed with your talk submission Chris. Your talks are always
interesting. It still fits into PyCon, along the line of the various "State

It's just that this year we are especially trying to reach beyond the Python
community, and outside the various subcommunities we have, to bring in new
people. For this we need more introductory talks. We have some very smart
people in our group, heads-down working hard, but sometimes newbies have
trouble getting started or even knowing what is relevant.
The tutorials we ran for the first time year helped a lot, as it brought in
corporate developers who would not have attended otherwise. We're also

In my involvement with various user groups over the past few years, I have run
into an incredible number of locals who develop in Python for themselves, have
never been to a community-based conference and aren't on very many mailing
lists. Their coding style is quirky, having never seen source other than
their own (yes, they should download and walk thru code more) and they are
totally unaware of the various Python subcommunities out there. Several
attended PyCon last year, and were amazed that they were not alone. I want
talks that they can walk into and get excited about what they hear.
Obviously the newbies are not the _only_ audience at PyCon; us long-timers
want cool talks too, like Stackless Architecture! So please submit a talk.
