Welcoming 7 Companies to Startup Row at PyCon US 2023

It's hard to believe that 2023 marks 20 years of PyCon US. From relatively modest beginnings to serving thousands of in-person attendees—and countless more who participate online and watch talks (sometimes years after they were given)—is a testament to the strength, diversity, and resilience of the Python community. Since 2011, PyCon US organizers have reserved a row of booths for early-stage technology companies doing new and interesting things with Python. Startup Row has been a fixture of PyCon US for over half the conference's run, and we're pleased to have given over 120 startups the opportunity to share what they're working on with the Python community. Many return as sponsors, and several have gone on to achieve billion-dollar success. The application process is always competitive, but this year's applicant pool was particularly impressive. PyCon organizers and the Python Software Foundation are thrilled to welcome seven companies to Startup Row at PyCon US 2

Response to Utah's Transgender Healthcare Ban

We’re saddened that the state of Utah has chosen to ban healthcare for transgender people . We can’t even imagine how trans Pythonistas and their families in Utah are feeling today. We also recognize that this makes visiting Salt Lake City from other places less appealing, especially for trans and gender-nonconforming Pythonistas.   At this moment, we’d like to reiterate our commitment to providing a safe and welcoming space at PyCon US. We will continue to uphold our code of conduct and we will be continuing to value each and every member of our community, including queer, trans, genderqueer and non-binary members of our community. Our standards: “Every member of our community has the right to have their identity respected. The Python community is dedicated to providing a positive experience for everyone, regardless of age, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, or religion (or lack thereof), educa

Applications Are Open for Booth Space on Startup Row

2023 is a big year for PyCon US. It’s kind of hard to believe that we’ll be celebrating 20 years of code and community. And for well over half that time, PyCon US has supported early-stage entrepreneurs by offering teams complementary conference passes and booth space on Startup Row . Great news: Applications are now open, but not for long. If you’re one of those action-oriented, “do now, read later” startup founders, applying for a spot is as easy as creating an account or logging into your existing account on the PyCon US 2023 website, and then submitting an application . (The application won’t load if you aren’t signed in.) Act fast, though: Applications close on February 26, 2023, and we aim to inform recipients by early March. What is Startup Row? Startup Row, as the name suggests, is a section of booths at PyCon US set aside for startups that are making innovative use of the Python programming language. Since 2011, over 100 companies have had the opportunity to share what they&
