PyCon US 2020 Hatchery Program Launches Call for Proposals

The PyCon US Hatchery Program has become a fundamental part of how PyCon as a conference adapts to best serve the Python community as it grows and changes with time.

Initially we wanted to gauge community interest for this type of program, and since launching in 2018 we have learned more about what kind of events the community might propose. At the end of the inaugural program, we accepted the PyCon Charlas as our first Hatchery event which has grown into a permanent track offered at PyCon US.

PyCon US 2019 presented 3 new hatchery programs, Mentored Sprints, the Maintainers Summit, and the Art of Python. This year we are hoping to continue that growth, and are encouraging more organizers to propose their event ideas. If you are intrigued by the idea of proposing a hatchery event you may also want to look at Sumana Harihareswara's excellent write ups of both the motivation and execution of the Art of Python.

The long-term goals of this program are to support and grow sustainable pr…
