Hey! Find out more about the proposal types here: JuliaCon 2021 :: pretalx

Our newest proposal type is " Experiences":

This is a new track that we are introducing this year. The purpose of this track is to welcome new members in the community. Example topics include your favorite features in Julia, how Julia has helped you solve a certain problem, or, more generally, how Julia has been a good addition to your workflow. These presentations will each last three minutes and will be interspersed throughout different sessions in the conference. We encourage you to show contact information such as twitter handle or github handle or email on your slides if you’d welcome any offline questions, as there won’t be allocated time for questions in this track.

When submitting your proposal (abstract), you may select multiple categories for consideration.

Deadline for submission is 2021-03-23 07:00 (UTC)

Please PM me if you have questions or things I can help with :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
