The long months of summer are finally at an end — for those of us in northern climes — and this Wednesday, on the first day of Autumn, the new PyCon website for Portland 2016 will launch!
The conference is a bit more than eight months away, and it is time for us organizers to start sharing the details that will help community members plan their travel schedules, time, and involvement in the largest annual gathering dedicated to the Python programming language.
In case your organization is interested in sponsoring PyCon and wants to already be listed as a sponsor on Launch Day when the website goes live, we have gone ahead and opened up the prospectus and application a few days before the rest of the site!
Interested sponsors can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any specific questions. And please do not panic if your company’s budget process or organization’s schedule does not allow you to already be planning for the 2016 conference season! Launch Day is not a deadline — our “Apply to be a Sponsor” page will be open through the end of the year and well into 2016. But for sponsors who are able to go ahead, decide, and step forward as a supporter, being listed on the website from day one allows for maximum exposure to our community.
Thank you to the sponsors who are already signed up. We look forward to your involvement in PyCon 2016!
