Early Bird Rates Ending January 25


If you haven’t already done so, now would be a good time to register for PyCon 2012! You know why? It’s cheaper if you do it soon - by the end of January 25. We already think PyCon is an extraordinary value with ticket prices that haven’t changed in years, but we want to take that a step further. With discounts as high as 25%, the clock is ticking to get the deal of the 2012 conference season.

If your company is sending you to the conference, they can get you in the door for $450, with that rate going up to $600 after Wednesday. Another thing your company might be interested in is sponsorship, which among other benefits, helps PyCon keep these great low rates year after year.

If you’re paying for yourself or are employed by a non-profit, the regular $350 rate is reduced to $300 and gets you a one-way ticket to awesome. If you don’t believe me, check out this schedule. We think think you’ll love it. In fact, we think you’ll find slots in the conference where every single talk is one you want to go to. Thanks to our amazing community, we’re honored to have created problems like this for you :) Don’t worry, we’re recording all of the talks again so you won’t completely miss out on the other four presentations in a given slot.

If you're in school, either as a student or an educator, you can save $25 by purchasing early at $200. When it comes to education, we have a lot of it. Our two days of tutorials, March 7 and 8, are filled with sessions taught by the best and brightest in the community. With two three-hour sessions occurring each day, there’s a lot to learn and at a great rate: $150 per tutorial.

Remember, the rates go up January 25 so now’s your last chance to save a few bucks. The full details of registration are on our site at https://us.pycon.org/2012/registration/. See you there!

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon.

It’s having over 3,000 people in one place to learn from and share with. It’s joining a conversation in the hallway with the creators of open source projects. It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…

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.
