Free CODE for .NET programmers

PyCon has arranged a special incentive for .NET programmers registering for PyCon. (Of course, all attendees are eligible for the promotion - but it will have a special interest for those in the .NET world.) Please pass the notice on to .NET programmers you know. We'd like to see new legions of .NET users introduced to the joys of IronPython!

* * * * *

.NET's Dynamic Language Runtime has brought new prominence to the role of .NET dynamic languages like IronPython, and many .NET programmers are looking for ways to get up-to-date on this growing aspect of the .NET environment. PyCon, the world's largest conference of Python and IronPython programmers, is an unparalleled learning opportunity. For $450 or less, attendees can spend an entire week learning from and working with Python and IronPython programmers from raw beginners to the creators of Python and IronPython themselves.

This year, PyCon offers a bonus to .NET programmers - a free one-year subscription to CODE magazine, the leading independent .NET resource.

PyCon 2010 runs Feb. 17-25 in Atlanta, Georgia. The conference includes five tracks of standard talks, plus Open Spaces, Lightning Talks, hands-on lab, exhibit hall, and poster sessions. Feb. 17-18 are set aside for twenty-four intensive, half-day tutorials. PyCon's development sprints run Feb. 22-25, in which ordinary attendees work together with project leaders to cooperate on extending and improving Python, IronPython, or their own favorite libraries and projects.

IronPython, a full-powered .NET implementation of Python, lets .NET programmers easily use dynamic language capabilities in their .NET environments. A brief review of IronPython's benefits for .NET programmers is at http://ironpython-urls.blogspot.com/2009/12/why-ironpython.html

Early-bird registration (through January 6) is just $450, and further discounts are available for students and attendees without employer support.

For information and to register, see http://us.pycon.org. To claim your free subscription to CODE, use this coupon code during registration:

(NOTE: Some attendees have reported that the registration site did not accept their coupon code. If that happens to you - or, for any other reason, you come to PyCon but haven't used the coupon code - don't worry! Signup for CODE will be available at PyCon itself.)

See you in Atlanta!

I'm not actually able to go to PyCon but is there a way for me to get the free code subscription anyway?

Sorry, Anonymous, the offer is only available with conference registration.

I guess you could register and not attend... :)

It won't accept that code, says, "value not in database".

Yep - sorry, it actually won't accept the code _yet_;

I'll post here when that makes it out to the server.

PyCon 2018 Call for Proposals is Open!

It’s here! PyCon 2018’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, and education summit presentations. 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.

Before we dive in, the deadlines:
Tutorial proposals are due November 24, 2017.Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2018.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.

We need beginner, intermediate, and advanced proposals on all sorts of topics. We also need b…

PyCon 2018 Launches New Site, Sponsorship Search

After two great years in Portland, PyCon is shipping off to Cleveland for the 2018 and 2019 renditions of the Python community's largest gathering. PyCon 2018 will take place May 9 through 17 with two days of tutorials, three days of talks, and four days of development sprints.

For more information, check out our newly refreshed website at https://us.pycon.org/2018/ and follow us here on the blog and at @pycon on Twitter.

New Website

The new site features a design centered on the historic landmark Terminal Tower, a 52 story skyscraper that overlooks downtown Cleveland. When it opened in 1930, the tower was the fourth tallest building in the world and the tallest building outside of New York City. Though its height no longer tops the charts, the tower and surrounding Tower City area remain highly important to the city. What once was a beacon to guide ship captains to Cleveland's port and airplane pilots to its airport, the tower now includes 508 LEDs that light up for the holida…

How to get ready for the PyCon development sprints

[A guest post by Kushal Das, one of the 2016 Sprint Coordinators]So — you have already decided to join in the PyCon development sprints! The sprints run for four days, from Thursday to Sunday after the conference. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the sprints! Some teams plan to write code over all four days, while some projects plan a shorter sprint if the organizers cannot stay for all four days.Can you start getting prepared for the sprint ahead of time? Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
