    1. Registration Back Online

Please pass this post on to those you feel may be interested.



Registration Back Online

Registrations are back online after a brief PayPal outage:

   http://pycon-au.org/reg

Our apologies to those inconvenienced.  PayPal put a temporary lock on our account while they were reviewing our status as a non-profit.  Many thanks to the hard-working folks at Linux Australia for following up with all the necessary paperwork.

To compensate for the outage we have adjusted some of our registration deadlines.  The new dates are:

 1st August:   T-Shirt order finalised
 8th August:   Special dietary needs finalised
 15th August:  Last chance to get tickets!

Remember, registrations must close on Monday the 15th of August, and we will not be accepting registrations at the door.

So don't delay, register now at:

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.

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

The PSF subsidizes this event each year by covering the cost of the venue, food, and beverages. In addition, the PSF adds a substantial donation to the event after everything is auctioned o…
