Since January I’m participating on events on Rio de Janeiro area. The one that every month is scheduled in my calendar is PythonRio. A Python(obviously =P ) event, but you can talk about everything that you want that fit the goal of the event: Share knowledge.
And every two weeks before the event, they open a Call4Talks. And using a tool that I started to admire: Speakerfight.
Speakerfight is called by their creators an “arena” where you submit your talk to an event, anonymously, and the attendees of the event choose what they want to see.
A point that I admire is this: You can have an event with more equality. You don’t choose a talk because the person that will do it, you will choose the talk because of the content. And with that, you break a cycle, that I see a lot in Brazil, that you call persons by their names, not by the quality of their talk.
And every good thing that is good and has an awesome purpose, we need to spread the word of it. =D
Speakerfight is powered by Python and Django.
Tell me what you think about this tool. =D
