May 19, 2014 by Tom Eastman

The New Zealand Python User Group and the Kiwi PyCon 2014 committee are pleased to announce the opening of the CFP for this year's Kiwi PyCon.

Kiwi PyCon is an independent, community-run and not-for-profit conference dedicated to the Python programming language. Kiwi PyCon 2014 will be held on the weekend of the 12th, 13th and 14th of September.

The venue for this year is The University of Otago Wellington Conference Centre, in Wellington's vibrant Newtown suburb, a quick bus ride from the center of the city.

The submission deadline for proposals is Sunday the 15th of June, 2014. That's a little under four weeks away, so get your thinking caps on!

We're looking for talks and tutorials on all aspects of Python. We especially welcome first-time speakers; we are a community conference and are eager to hear about your experience. If you have friends or colleagues who have something to contribute, please twist their arm (gently!) to talk about it!

If you have the seed of an idea, head over to and create a user account. Fill in some details, and submit your talk. We're looking forward to hearing about it!
