Coffee

Thanks to gold sponsors Arclight, we will be able to provide one of the most requested additions to this year's conference:  Coffee!

Yes, Arclight have generously agreed to provide a free coffee cart for the duration of the conference.  And there was much rejoicing.



Hosting Panel

Saturday evening will feature an informal panel discussion with several hosting providers.  Come and hear from our hosting panel about why their services are right for hosting your next Python project! Each group will give a quick 5 minute spiel, to be followed by a casual drink before the conference dinner.

This event is happening in a private area at Mr B's pub, across the street from the SMC. As this is a licensed venue anyone under 18 will have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

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.
