I am Rengaraj Volunteer for PyCon India 2019. Below we have given
reasons for Why poster ?. We are looking forward for the posters from
DGPLUG Community.

As announced earlier, the posters are yet another way of participating
in PyCon India 2019, which is happening on Oct 12-15, at Chennai.
There are two different poster types, you can present at PyCon India.

    Technical Posters - for presenting projects and insights on various topics
    Community Posters - for user groups / meetup groups to promote their work

Here are few good reasons to present a poster:

   1. Posters offer the opportunity to engage with attendees
interested in the same subject and application as yourself. You might
strike up a conversation with someone about your poster that may lead
to future collaborations or even a job offer!

    2. If you are new to conferences, or if you are intimidated about
doing a talk in front of huge audience, posters are for you. Posters
are a great way to test the waters, and can be stepping stone for your
next talk at a conference.

    3. The entire conference attendees is available during the poster
session, as there are no other tracks scheduled in parallel. This
makes it better than the talk sessions, where there are multiple
concurrent tracks, and attendees can only attend one of them.

    4. A poster presentation is a good way to disseminate your work,
particularly if your topic or project falls within a narrow field of
specialization. It also gives you the opportunity to actively engage
with others during the conference in a way that networking alone does
not, since by its very nature the poster defines the topic of

    5. Another good reason to present a poster is that you can expect
to receive compliments on your work and critiques that can help you in
the future. An insightful, impartial discussion of your work by a peer
can often provide ideas for improving your work downstream.

In short, poster presentations provide value, both for attendees who
discuss your poster content with you, and for yourself because of the
opportunities highlighted above. If this has got you interested, head
