Become a Python contributor at PyOhio

Working in Python is awesome. Are you ready to work on Python?

The quality of Python and the Standard Library depend on volunteers who fix bugs and make improvements to the codebase. If you're interested in joining these volunteers, good for you! Information on core development is right on Python's homepage; see also "How to contribute to Python"

However, if you'd like an in-person boost to get you started, come to PyOhio this July 31 - August 3. Two talks will get you up to speed on Python contribution: "Intro to Core Involvement" and "Teach Me Python Bugfixing". Next come two evenings and two full days of Python core sprinting, so you can put your new skills to use with plenty of helpers around.

It's classroom learning and real-life practice at one free event! See you there!
