Poster Sessions at Kiwi PyCon

May 15, 2016 by Tom Clark

You're doing something interesting related to Python. Kiwi PyCon is an opportunity to share it with the community. Some people do this by giving engaging talks, but giving a talk isn't for everyone. Maybe your topic doesn't work well in a talk format, or maybe you'd rather discuss it one-on-one or in small groups rather than addressing a large audience. If that's the case, then you should consider presenting in our poster session.
