FlaskCon is coming on June 26th!

Hi everyone!

Some awesome folks from the Python/Flask community have been putting a *ton* of work into organizing the inaugural **FlaskCon.** FlaskCon is an online conference which is:

* **100% remote,**
* **100% free,**
* **and 100% community-driven.**

FlaskCon will go live on **June 26th, 2020**. It will focus on technical discussions and Flask evangelism. Best of all, **everyone is invited to participate!**

If you have an interesting idea for a Flask-related talk, want to show off something unique you've made, or anything else that you think people will want to hear about, [**sign up to participate here**](https://sessionize.com/flaskcon). A lot of great people have signed on to review talk proposals, including Pallets members and the author of the Flask Mega-Tutorial.

  1. Very cool!

    Sorry if this is ignorant, but is this the first year of flaskcon? I was hoping to find some videos from last year to see what kind of talks the conference usually accepts. I can’t find anything on Youtube but maybe there’s something I’m missing.

    I’m asking because I’m considering submitting a talk, but I’m reluctant to put in all the work if it’s not at the right level for the conference.

    FWIW my idea is to basically expand on my stackoverflow answer about [JSON Serialization techniques that are new in Flask 1.1 and Python 3.7](https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5022066/how-to-serialize-sqlalchemy-result-to-json/57732785#57732785). It seems like a lot of people don’t know about that functionality (since it’s not in any of the Flask docs), but I’m not sure it’s the kind of topic that would be appropriate for the conference.

  2. Will presenters be live streaming their talks or will they be submitting pre-recorded videos of their talk?

    I figured I’d ask here instead of emailing you directly because others might have the same question.
