Post-Conference Sprints

We are taking up the global PyCon tradition of post-conference sprints this year at PyCon Au.

A Sprint is an opportunity for people to get together and do focussed development on a project in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. Experienced developers will be on hand to help newcomers get started, so bring your laptops and take this opportunity to contribute to the Python ecosystem!

The sprints will be held on the 22nd and 23rd of August at the Sydney Masonic Center.  Sprint leaders and topics so far include:


Nick Coghlan:
Python core development
Audrey Roy/Danny Greenfeld:
Django and/or Packaginator

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.

In Pittsburgh, you'll find that the residents are all neighbors. And with 90 unique neighborhoods tha…
