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 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 2019 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

PyCon 2019 Transparency ReportThe PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. 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. In our efforts to continue to improve how PyCon handles CoC incidents, staff, volunteers and community members participated in a CoC training prior to PyCon 2019. In having more people trained we provided a more thorough process for reporting and responses. 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 staff responded. OverviewReportsThis year, PyCon Staff and Incident Responders were notified of 11 incidents. For summary purposes we categorized each report using a…

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…
