PyCon Poster Session - Third Time's the Charm

17, 31, 50...

PyCon 2012 marks the third year of the Poster Session.  The Poster Session has been training in the off-season and is back, bigger and better than ever.  This year we have 50 posters for your PyCon enjoyment with the full list of accepted posters coming soon to the site.  We've grown a lot since the original 17 posters of the inaugural session2 years ago!

Wondering how you'll manage your time and make it to all the posters that call to you? Wondering what's on the list? 

We'll have Robots that test mobile applications and play Angry Birds in their spare time...

You can learn how people are using Python Power to increase student engagement...

You can find out how Python helps keep the Chandra X-ray Observatory operating safely...

You can get tips on Python Community development and the details of PSF Sprint Sponsorship...

Innovative uses of Django, doing Bioinformatics, Packaging, Cython and much, much more!

So be prepared - the PyCon poster session happens on Sunday, March 11 right after the morning keynote. An hour and half, 50 posters, robots and plenty of people excited about their projects to talk to...come ready.  The poster session is a great way to connect with people of similar interests, get new ideas and start new collaborations.  Is all of that not enough to excite you about the Poster Session?  We also have snacks...

PyCon 2018 Call for Proposals is Open!

It’s here! PyCon 2018’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, and education summit presentations. PyCon is made by you, so we need you to share what you’re working on, how you’re working on it, what you’ve learned, what you’re learning, and so much more.

Before we dive in, the deadlines:
Tutorial proposals are due November 24, 2017.Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2018.Who should write a proposal? Everyone!

If you’re reading this post, you should write a proposal. PyCon is about uniting and building the Python community, and we won’t advance as an open community if we’re not open with each other about what we’ve learned throughout our time in it. It isn’t about being the smartest one in the room, so we don’t just pick all of the expert talks. It’s about helping everyone move together. “A rising tide lifts all boats,” if you will.

We need beginner, intermediate, and advanced proposals on all sorts of topics. We also need b…

PyCon 2018 Launches New Site, Sponsorship Search

After two great years in Portland, PyCon is shipping off to Cleveland for the 2018 and 2019 renditions of the Python community's largest gathering. PyCon 2018 will take place May 9 through 17 with two days of tutorials, three days of talks, and four days of development sprints.

New Website

The new site features a design centered on the historic landmark Terminal Tower, a 52 story skyscraper that overlooks downtown Cleveland. When it opened in 1930, the tower was the fourth tallest building in the world and the tallest building outside of New York City. Though its height no longer tops the charts, the tower and surrounding Tower City area remain highly important to the city. What once was a beacon to guide ship captains to Cleveland's port and airplane pilots to its airport, the tower now includes 508 LEDs that light up for the holida…

How to get ready for the PyCon development sprints

[A guest post by Kushal Das, one of the 2016 Sprint Coordinators]So — you have already decided to join in the PyCon development sprints! 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. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
