Talks and tutorial lists announced

After much delay, the slate of talks and tutorials for PyCon 2007 is now public.



An early draft of the conference schedule is also available. This schedule is still subject to change -- speakers may report conflicts that will require some rearrangement, and session times may still shift around a little. Be especially cautious if you're selecting what time to leave on Sunday; if the Sunday afternoon talks are shuffled, you might have to miss an interesting session.

This draft of the schedule is published using Google™ Spreadsheets as a temporary measure; soon we'll switch to using our own conference application for the schedule.

I know this would make for a long day but it might be better to have (3) 3 hour sessions on the tutorial day instead of 2. This will allow for up to 3 classes to be taken by a person and would allow some flexibility in the arrangements of the rooms. For popular classes it would be possible to use 2 rooms instead 1 so that more people could attend them.

I expect Turbogears, Django, Testing will be popular and SQLAlchemy, Idiomatic Python will be fairly popular. I also expect many who attend either TurboGears or Django would also be interested in SQLAlchemy. With all this in mind I'll suggest the following schedule

-------
TurboGears 1
TurboGears 2
SQLAlchemy
(2 rooms)
-------
Django 1
Django 2
Testing
(2 rooms)
-------
Faster python 1
Faster python 2
-------
Python 101
DB-API
Document
-------
Zope
Microsoft
Idiomatic Python
-------

If some other class are also popular like Python 101 or Idiomatic Python it could be done in 2 sessions if the presenter would be wiling to do so or have it taught in the Addison room as I believe its bigger.

Obviously my predictions of which classes will be popular can be wrong in which case the schedule could be moved around a bit but in either case the 3 sessions provide more flexibility and I would think that most people who sign up for 2 classes would also sign up for 3 as how often does someone have a chance to take Python classes.

Hatchery Program Returns for 2019

PyCon is known around the world as the Python community’s premier event, attracting people from 39 countries. Outside of the main track of talks, PyCon is home to a growing number of events such as Young Coders, the Education Summit, Language Summit, Poster Session, and most recently the PyCon Charlas. The conference strives to be globally representative by promoting diversity and inclusion through these additional events and outreach programs. Our community works to approach these goals year on year. While we regularly receive requests to add events to PyCon, we have not had an established process for accepting and evaluating the community’s suggestions. By introducing the PyCon Hatchery Program in 2018, we took an initial step to introduce a long term process for evolving PyCon. What is our goal?We want to support our community and enable them to add events to PyCon that are important to our community. The long-term goals of this program are to support and grow sustainable programs th…

Pycon 2019 Call for Proposals is Open!

The time is upon us again! PyCon 2019’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, education summit presentations, as well as the hatchery program PyCon Charlas. PyCon is made by you, so we need you to share what you’re working on, how you’re working on it, what you’ve learned, what you’re learning, and so much more.

Please make note of important deadlines for submissions:
Tutorial proposals are due November 26, 2018.Talk, Charlas, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2019.
Who should write a proposal? Everyone! If you’re reading this post, you should write a proposal. PyCon is about uniting and building the Python community, and we won’t advance as an open community if we’re not open with each other about what we’ve learned throughout our time in it. It isn’t about being the smartest one in the room, so we don’t just pick all of the expert talks. It’s about helping everyone move together. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” if you will.

PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

The PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. For 2018 the Code of Conduct underwent an extensive overhaul, our procedures for reporting and responding to incidents were improved, and our on-site methods were improved. You can read more about the updates for 2018 here. Cumulatively these changes were meant to improve the safety, welcoming nature, and overall inclusivity of PyCon. Based on initial responses, feedback, and incidents reported this year we feel that we made progress on those goals. A Code of Conduct without appropriate reporting and response procedures is difficult to enforce transparently, and furthermore a lack of transparency in the outcomes of Code of Conduct incidents leaves the community without knowledge of how or if the organizers worked to resolve incidents. With that in mind, we have prepared the following to help the community understand what kind of incidents we received reports about and how the PyCon…
