Poster Session Proposal Deadline Nears

The preparations for PyCon 2012 are moving into their final phase. The talks have been announced, the tutorials are on the books, just about the only thing that remains is to submit a poster proposal!

Do you want to share your latest Python coding experiments? Or build interest in a budding project? Do you want to present something at PyCon, but don't feel that a talk is for you?


Now in its third year, the poster session has become a part of the PyCon tradition. Praised by presenters for being both an excellent opportunity to interact with interested people and a lower pressure, more accessible venue than regular talks, the poster session lets you reach more people at PyCon with less fuss than any other type of presentation. So if you have an idea that you want to get out there, or a project you want feedback on, submit a poster.

For more reasons why you simply must present a poster, see Brian Curtin's earlier post and for more information on the poster sessions and how to submit a proposal, visit the general description of the poster session or the poster session CFP

Poster proposals are being accepted on a rolling basis for one more week (or until we hit our limit of 36 posters). Submissions are coming in, so if you want to be sure of getting a spot, go to the PyCon speaker information page and submit your proposal soon!

I hope to see you (and your poster) at PyCon!

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon. The conference itself is three days worth of our community’s 95 best talks, amazing keynote speakers each morning, and our famed lightning talks to close out each day, but it’s much more than that. 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…

PyCon Opens Financial Aid Applications

Even though PyCon prides itself on being an affordable conference, registration is one of several expenses an attendee must incur, and it’s likely the smallest one. Flying, whether halfway around the world or from a few hundred miles away, is more expensive. Staying in a hotel for a few days is also more expensive. All together, the cost of attending a conference can become prohibitively expensive. That’s where our Financial Aid program comes in. We’re opening applications for Financial Aid today, and we’ll be accepting them through February 15, 2018.
Once you have an account on the site, you can apply here or through your dashboard.
We offer need-based grants to enable people from across our community to attend PyCon. The criteria for evaluating requests takes into account several things, such as whether the applicant is a student, unemployed, or underemployed; their geographic location; and their involvement in both the conference and the greater Python community. Those presenting at …

Introducing the PyCon Hatchery Program

PyCon is known around the world as the Python community’s premier event, attracting people from 39 countries. Outside of the main track of talks, PyCon is home to a growing number of additional events such as Young Coders, the Education Summit, Language Summit, Poster Session, among others. The conference strives to be globally representative by promoting diversity and inclusion through these additional events and outreach programs.
Our community works to meet these goals year on year. In the past, we have received requests to add events to PyCon but have not had the resources to make them work. Although we are still limited on staff resources, we are proposing a stepping point that may lead us in the right direction. What is the end goal?We want to support our community and enable them to add events to PyCon that are important to our community. The long-term goals of this program are to support and grow sustainable events that will become a recurring part of PyCon itself or find a home…
