PyCon is here!

Before we get under way, https://us.pycon.org/2015/onsite/ is your go-to for all things once you're at PyCon. Here are some important details and things coming up.

WiFi: SSID is "PyCon 2015" and upon joining the network you'll be presented with a popup (you may need to try to visit a site first). 

Download the Guidebook app to keep track of it all. Our schedules and events are all loaded in there, and you can build your own personal schedule, complete with notifications to keep you up to date on what talks are going on when. Head to https://guidebook.com/getit/ and install it for your device!

Lunch Menus

We put together the menus for each of the lunches and breaks, and where possible, have listed ingredients. If you've made a specific meal request on your registration, be sure to ask our friendly lunch staff for the type of meal that suits you.

Registration

Pick up your badge starting at 7 AM the next few days! The closing hours differ by day so check out the schedule.

Open Spaces

The Open Space signup boards are placed near registration at the base of the escalators, so you'll be able to plan all of the on-site meetings and discussions and talks you'd like.

5K Charity Fun Run

Join us Saturday morning for the fourth annual 5K Charity Fun Run, with the proceeds benefiting Autism Speaks Canada. Registration is handled here with at least a $20 donation.

PyLadies Auction

Saturday night is the always fun PyLadies Auction. Last year we raised over $10,000 USD for PyLadies, and we've got some great items that were donated by our sponsors and others. Check out the list to get a feel for what's on the auction block.

Job Fair

Sunday is our job fair, with participation from a ton of our sponsors. What better place to see who's hiring than the biggest Python conference around?

Code of Conduct

While you're at PyCon, please be mindful of our code of conduct, listed above and in the print guides inside each attendee bag. Contact information is available on the site, and the attendee incident guidelines are available here.
