PyCon 2012: Close of Sponsorship applications

This is the strangest announcement - one that I never dreamed of making. Ladies and Gentlemen, PyCon (sponsorship) is full.

The Expo Hall, anyway. At least close enough that we need to do the unthinkable - we need to announce that sponsorship applications for PyCon 2012 will be closing (unless you don't want a booth!).

The Python Software Foundation, and the entire PyCon US 2012 team would like to thank all of our current (and pending!) sponsors. We have an unprecedented 94 sponsors and other partners (such as PyLadies, OSU/OSL and others) not including pending sponsor applications.

This is amazing. It is a huge milestone for PyCon and the foundation and we can not thank all of the sponsors enough. On a personal level, I would like to thank each and every one of them - it has been an honor and privilege working with them and seeing their support for PyCon and the community as a whole.

Therefore I am announcing that we will close the conference to any new sponsorship as of Friday January 20, 2012.

We do still have sponsorship opportunities available until this - you can view our prospectus page for details, or email me with any questions you may have.

Also, remember to check out the PyCon Jobs Fair page - more and more sponsors are listing open positions!

Registration is open - we still have plenty of hotel rooms and tickets - but early bird rates end on January 25th.

Our Diamond sponsors are: Google, Dropbox, and Heroku.

Our Platinum sponsors include: Microsoft, New Relic, Survey Monkey, Nasuni Corporation, Facebook, Nebula, Gondor.io and EventBrite.

Gold sponsors include: ZeOmega, Bitly, White Oak Technologies, DotCloud, OpDemand, CCP Games, ActiveState, JetBrains, Caktus Consulting, Enthought, Cloud Foundry (VMware), Linode, Disqus, Spotify, Leapfrog Online, Loggly, Snoball, Evite, PlaidCloud, Revolution Systems, Canonical, Aldebaran Robotics, Mozilla, Lab305 JP Morgan, PiCloud, Splunk, Milo.com and Walt Disney Animation Studios.

Silver level sponsors are: Urban Airship, Cox Media Group, Eucalyptus Systems, Olark, WiserTogether, ESRI, Accense Technology, AG Interactive, Vocollect, 10gen, BigDoor, The Open Bastion, Toast Driven, Net-ng, MyYearBook, Threadless, gocept, Lex Machina, Aarki, FreshBooks, Github, fwix, Imaginary Landscape, OpenStack, devsAr, Stratasan, MapMyFitness, Kelly Creative Tech, Bitbucket, Mailgun, Opscode, Continuum Analytics, Wingware, Emma, Shining Panda, Python Academy, Cisco, Addison-Wesley/Prentice Hall, Kontagent, DataStax, EnergySavvy, O'Reilly and Truveris.

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. While you're out and about, see if you can count all 446 bridges in the city (that's more than you'll find in Venice, Italy)!

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

Eighth Annual PyLadies Auction at PyCon 2019

PyLadies is an international mentorship community for women that use Python. Since it’s founding in 2011, PyLadies has continued to bring women into the Python community through a variety of methods, including hosting events in local PyLadies chapters and offering grant opportunities to attend PyCon.

PyCon 2018’s auction was a huge success raising over $30K! More than 40 items from sponsors and fellow attendees were auctioned. Attendance was overwhelming and, rather than turn more people away for 2019, we have decided to increase capacity this year!

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…
