As we wrap up PyCon US 2022, we can’t express enough gratitude for all who attended this year’s conference, whether in-person or online. We had an amazing and diverse group of community members join us for PyCon US 2022. By the numbers, we saw a total attendance of 2,422 – with 1,753 attendees joining us in person and 669 joining us online. We couldn’t be more grateful for all who supported the Python ecosystem and helped make PyCon US 2022 a great success! Here is a comprehensive recap of this year’s PyCon US conference: Wit

PyCon US 2022 Recordings Update

We understand that the PyCon US recordings are an incredibly important resource to the community. We were looking forward to providing the PyCon US 2022 recordings very soon after the event – especially since we know many of you weren’t able to attend this year’s conference in person. Regrettably, we have encountered some technical obstacles this year. We are working with our AV partners at the venue to resolve things as soon as possible. Because of the ongoing pandemic, we were unable to work with our usual vendor for PyCon US conferences. They are based in Canada and understandably didn’t want to commit to travel to the US this year. This resulted in PyCon US contracting with a new AV vendor for the first time in many years. We were very thorough in providing details, but ultimately this was a new team doing work to new specifications. The onsite AV team has provided an update on the technical issues as follows: “Some of the sessions are missing audio or graphics and are being worked

PyCon Development Sprints are up to two days of intensive learning and development on an open source project of your choice, in a team environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project. It's a time to test, fix bugs, add new features, and improve documentation. And it's a time to network, make friends, and build relationships that go beyond the conference. PyCon provides the opportunity and infrastructure; you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't forget your computer). For those that have never attended

Important Venue Information Update

The PyCon US 2022 staff, committees, and volunteers know that for many attending PyCon US 2022 next week the Health and Safety Guidelines and Vaccine Verification policy along with a commitment to enforce them via our Code of Conduct have provided the information necessary to weigh the risks and make attendance decisions that best meet their needs. We remain committed to those policies and procedures set forth from the start to deliver the safest possible environment for all attendees. That commitment extends to ensuring that attendees are aware of the venue layout and shared spaces where our policies cannot apply. What you need to know: The Salt Palace Convention Center will be hosting another event concurrently with PyCon US , the USA Gymnastics T&T Region 1&2 Championships. The gymnastics event will not be requiring masks for their attendees and does not currently have a published set of policies or statements regarding vaccines.  Venue Details While the layout of the con

PyCon US 2022 Welcomes 8 Early-Stage Companies To Startup Row

It's official! The Startup Row lineup has been finalized, and we're very excited to give eight early-stage companies a unique opportunity to share what they're working on with the vibrant, diverse group of folks who come to PyCon US. Selected through a competitive application process, Startup Row companies receive the perks of conference sponsorship without the financial burden. Many companies which previously presented on Startup Row come back to PyCon as sponsors. Ultimately, though, Startup Row is the PSF's way of giving back to technical entrepreneurs who expand and enrich the Python ecosystem. Popular tools like Pandas, Plotly, and Docker were all created by Startup Row companies. And some of the companies coming to Salt Lake City may soon become the standard-bearers of their categories. After a challenging couple of years, it's going to be great to get back to the in-person conference experience, and 2022's Startup Row batch is perhaps the most impressive
