- How Python is being used for education
- Hardware / Infrastructure
- Security tools and securing Python
- Data science, AI, Machine Learning
- Video Games (or game-related tooling) written in Python
- MicroPython, CircuitPython, embedded software
If you ever find yourself in doubt:
- "talks" are named "events" in Pentabarf
- Track must be "Python devroom"
- Duration must be between "00:15:00" and "00:30:00"
- Event type must be "Lecture"
- Abstract is the text that goes in the FOSDEM booklet
We will also call for volunteers to help us run the event and help us with
the devroom operation. You can get in touch with the organizers on the
