Need dinner plans? Yelp can help!


Through all of the talks, tutorials, open spaces and more, some of the best parts of PyCon are the meals. Especially dinner! Each PyCon ticket gets you catered breakfast and lunch at the conference center, with lunch being a great way to refuel and sit down at a table and meet your next project contributor, business partner, or friend. Dinner, however, is a meal you’re on your own for. Not to worry, because with 1500+ people needing to head out for dinner, there’s never a shortage of groups on the way out for a burger, pasta, falafel, beer, wine, you name it. Some people even use PyCon sponsor Yelp.com to find their dinner destination.

This year Yelp has stepped up as a sponsor for food! Not only will they help you find a destination, they’ll be giving rides to a few of the area’s highly rated restaurants. On Friday and Saturday night, Yelp will be renting several buses and driving conference goers to these select eateries, giving you a chance to get out and have a good meal with good company. The details are still being ironed out, but it looks like there will be around five buses each holding approximately 30 people. Yelp plans to send along one of their developers on each bus as an ambassador, and they might bring some nice swag as well!

As for getting on the bus, sign ups will be announced on site on the first day of the conference. You like what you see? Sign up and enjoy! Be sure to sign up on site - first come, first served.

Schedule-wise we’re looking at departure around a half hour after the day’s lightning talks are over, so about 6:30-7:00. We’ll certainly announce a more accurate time during each day’s morning session. Once you’re there, you’ll have 2-2.5 hours to spend at the restaurant and in the area. After that, the bus heads back to the hotel where you can join back up with the festivities. You’ll be back just in time for the evening’s open spaces and BoF sessions!


Bon Appétit!

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.

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…
