So you want to, or know someone who would like to be a PyCon sponsor?

PyCon 2011 is breaking records already - but we're still on the lookout for more excellent sponsors to join our already impressive list of sponsors - if you are part of a business, and you want to reach out to over a thousand Python enthusiasts - PyCon is the place to do so.

Your sponsorship helps keep PyCon affordable and accessible to the widest possible audience - and helps you connect to the Python community. The money goes not just to the conference, but also to the Python Software Foundation, who uses those funds to further grow the community through sprints, development grants, assisting to fund other conferences throughout the world, and much more.

Sponsorship not only brings good will from the community for your company - but it also offers you an awesome audience for your product(s) and services and can help with recruiting efforts (we strongly encourage recruiting at PyCon) - and it can even help with new product launches (speaking from personal experience)!

If you are interested - or know someone who is - take a look at the sponsorship prospectus. We offer a variety of levels for you to choose from, and can be flexible with the benefits. For example, if you don't need a booth - you may (on a case by case basis) trade it for additional session passes (good for the entire conference) or tutorials registrations for your personnel.

You can contact pycon-sponsors@python.org or Jesse Noller (jnoller@python.org) directly with any questions you might have. If you know someone who might be interested, you can also pass on contact information.

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…

[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…
