We believe in a fully transparent submission process by which both our members and potential speakers can see how talks are being reviewed, approved, and scheduled.
Submitting your talk at https://www.boulderpython.org/submit will automatically add it to the "New" list on our public Trello board. We'll include the title and pitch, but don't worry, your email and talk notes are kept private.
Talks are reviewed weekly by our organizing members. As soon as an organizer begins reviewing a talk, it will move into the "In Review" list.
Here are some talk guidelines, and information about how we review talks.
It's extremely helpful to include a basic outline in your talk description. We're looking at how you'd like to present the topic as much as what the topic is.
We look at new talks as an opportunity to collaborate with speakers on delivering high quality content to our community. In the spirit of this collaboration, we strive to always provide constructive feedback when a talk can use improvement, and we work to get each talk to the podium through an iterative process of refinement with our speakers.
Once the review process is complete and a talk is ready to present, we work with speakers to find a convenient time slot. Boulder Python meets on the second Tuesday of every month, and we work hard to keep to that schedule.
In the event that a speaker cannot give a talk on the 2nd Tuesday due to travel or other immovable constraints, we'll consider an alternate date.
When an available time slot has been identified, the talk will be moved to the "Scheduled" list and assigned a due date. The speaker will also receive a calendar invite by email.
If for some reason you cannot make your scheduled talk date, please contact the organizers and let them know as soon as possible.
