PyCon 2015 Schedule Announced!

The wait is over: PyCon 2015's schedule is available! The tutorial schedule has been available for several weeks now, and we made poster selections a while back as well, but we've completed the biggest part: scheduling 95 talks across three days in five rooms.

It takes a lot of people to come up with this schedule, starting with those of you who submitted the 542 talk proposals we received. PyCon has always been a "what you make of it" sort of event, with so many people to talk to and things to do that it'd be hard to replicate the same experience twice, and that starts with these proposals. Thank you to everyone who submitted proposals this year.

Another huge year for submissions means another great crew of volunteers gave a lot of their time to evaluate them. As with all things PyCon, a mixture of returning veterans worked with a set of first-timers, giving a lot of different viewpoints to bring us to this schedule. Led by Alex Gaynor and Luke Sneeringer, far too many people to name deserve a round of applause for their efforts here. Thank you all!

A lot of us have been saying that we could make several full conferences out of the body of submissions we received over the last few years, and that's true. Since we only have space for 95 talks, which puts us at a 18% acceptance rate this year, the next 18% in line could also be an awesome conference as well, and on down the line. The proliferation of regional conferences over the last few years has been a great outlet for a lot of our proposers, and we encourage everyone to take their proposals to them as well. While it's too late for PyTennessee, which takes place in Februrary, there's still PyOhio, PyTexas, PyGotham, and a ton of other international conferences to come in 2015. It's going to be a good year for Python conferences, for sure.

Take a look at the full schedule at and register before we sell out. The last three events have sold out and we're expecting yet another!
