PyCon Early Bird prices Extended until January 25th

Early bird registration and tutorial pricing on extended until January 25th.

The PyCon 2011 team has decided to extend the early bird registration pricing until January 25th - this is due to a combination of factors including:

  • Ending on a 3 day weekend (in the US at least) making it difficult for people who are relying on corporate approvals to get registered in time (Monday is Martin Luther King day in the US).
  • Financial aid approvals being delayed (announcements have been sent out however).
  • The delay in talk and tutorial announcements.
  • A special announcement in the coming days...

While the first three reasons are more mundane, the fourth is what really excites us, and we're hoping it excites all of you as well when we announce it in the next 48 hours. We're seeing amazingly high numbers of registrations - at this point in time we are several hundred registrations ahead of registrations we had this time last year, and the year before.

We're rapidly heading towards our registration cap, so while we're extending it - register now

Please also note: We've been adding a lot of great content - including tutorial announcements and other items on the PyCon 2011 site's blog directly - check it out over here
