All PyCon 2009 Videos Uploading

The video team has pulled the trigger and all the video from the conference is being uploaded now. At the time of this post about 14 talks are now online. By the end of the day Friday, almost everything should be available (with a few minor exceptions). The videos are also integrated into the PyCon Schedule App as well, with a minor lag time. Just look for the tiny video icon: .

Congratulations to the entire PyCon US 2009 volunteer video team for performing this Herculean task. In total 2.2TB of video, covering 168 hours of material, were collected, edited, transcoded, and uploaded. This is divided into 96 hours from the tutorials and 72 hours from the main conference.

Great job Doug and the whole video team. Thanks for your excellent efforts!

I would love to talk some of the credit for the video, but to be honest I had nothing to do with it. I am just the messenger because the video team is all asleep (for the first time in days).

Wonderful! I think the openness of PyCon is one of the most amazing things about Python. I think blip is a good choice: the videos look very good, and I especially appreciate the ability to easily download a copy of videos. Best of all, the way all the videos are collected together and linked from the schedule is very slick and a huge improvement from the scattered videos of other years.

Thanks to all involved!

@rajkumar: The video crew did make a "how to record videos" video, which will be posted eventually. Is that what you meant?
rajkumar said…
@David Goodger : No,like a teaser - Behind the scene videos.
David Goodger said…
@rajkumar: They have a bit of that as well. It's a video of people shooting a video. You can watch it side-by-side with the main video itself.

I was just told that we do have some behind-the-scenes video as well. It will require some editing and post-processing though, so may take a while to show up.

This is great stuff. I was curious, will the tutorials also be posted. I've watched several, already
David Goodger said…
@Anonymous: Yes, videos from the tutorials will be published also. However, they will take longer because: (a) we're hitting the daily upload limit on; and (b) the tutorial videos are much larger than talk videos (~1GB vs. ~200MB), and that hits other limits. So please be patient.

Thanks for the response. That is great to hear. I still have plenty to watch, till they are posted.

Any progress on getting the tutorials uploaded?

Tutorials should be up ASAP - we've had to deal with some technical issues (a/v sync issues) but we believe we have them mostly resolved now.

An update regarding PyCon 2019 sponsor DataCamp

The PyCon staff is saddened to hear that one of our sponsors, DataCamp, had an incident where one of their employees was sexually harassed. We were also distressed to find it was unclear if Datacamp had addressed this incident with the seriousness it requires. PyCon and the Python Software Foundation take this issue seriously and we want to emphasize---for Datacamp and everyone---that such behavior is not tolerated at PyCon or any Python Software Foundation affiliated event.

The Python community must hold itself to a higher standard. We would like to reemphasize our values of inclusiveness and a willingness to act on behalf of the vulnerable members of our community as written in the Python Software Foundation code of conduct, and our guidelines, as written up in the PyCon code of conduct.

The Python Software Foundation Board, Python Software Foundation Executive Director, and myself have taken time to discuss the situation taking into account the concerns of our community, public discu…

PyCon 2020-2021 Location

Now that registration and planning are well underway for PyCon 2019 in Cleveland, the PSF is pleased to announce that the home for PyCon 2020 and 2021 will be Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

The conference will be held in the beautiful David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 15-23, 2020 and May 12-20, 2021.

The Steel City is built around the convergence of the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers and offers an understated mix of arts, culture, and technology. Join the Pittsburgh Python User Group for a meetup, eat dinner in a converted train station at the Grand Concourse, take a century-old cable car up the Duquesne Incline to see stunning views of the city, or visit the Robot Hall of Fame at the Carnegie Science Center's roboworld® exhibit. While you're out and about, see if you can count all 446 bridges in the city (that's more than you'll find in Venice, Italy)!

In Pittsburgh, you'll find that the residents are all neighbors. And with 90 unique neighborhoods tha…
PyCon is here and so are the PyCon Sprints (May 6 - 9). For those who have not heard of OR attended the Sprints, we want to invite you to attend!

The PyCon Sprints are a time set aside for you and the developers of your favorite tools to work TOGETHER to make those tools better: fix bugs, add features, and improve documentation.

It is also a place for you to invite others to work on your project.

There are a number of initiatives at PyCon every year to help ensure that the Sprints go off without a hitch.

Sat: Mentored Sprints (New this year, registration required, currently sold out)
Sun: Sprint Leader presentations/project descriptions
Sun: "Intro to Sprints" workshop
Mon-Thu: the Sprints!

What can you expect at each of these events?

Mentored Sprints (Saturday): These are new this year and are a chance for attendees from groups traditionally underrepresented in the open source community to have hands-on support in a welcoming environment during their open source journey. While …
