PyCon US 2013: Now accepting Launch day sponsors!

That's right folks - the PyCon US team starting planning and executing for PyCon 2013 before PyCon 2012 even ended. We're revving up our engines as we speak to fully launch PyCon 2013, March 13th-21st in Santa Clara CA once again.

Last year we had over 2300 attendees from all over the world - PyCon 2012 was the largest gathering of Python hackers in history. This year, we've set a hard cap of 2500 total attendees (this includes sponsor registrations). We fully expect to sell out the conference once again - and we've got huge things in store for 2013.

PyCon 2013 will be the last year we hold it in Santa Clara for this cycle - PyCons 2014 and 2015 will be held in Montreal Canada, and this is my final year as PyCon chair - so let's make this one as epic a blowout as last year's was.

With our launch, we are now signing up launch day sponsors - these sponsors get additional billing, visibility and, well community appreciation for being launch day partners, and will be part of a large PR push we are planning.

If you and your company are interested - send an email to jnoller@gmail.com for the 2013 prospectus, which we have revised based on feedback from past years.

I'm excited to once again be chairing the conference, and having the honor of working with our sponsors, attendees and the privilege of working for the Python Community.

Jesse Noller, PyCon 2013 Chair

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…

PyCon 2019 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

PyCon 2019 Transparency ReportThe PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. A Code of Conduct without appropriate reporting and response procedures is difficult to enforce transparently, and furthermore a lack of transparency in the outcomes of Code of Conduct incidents leaves the community without knowledge of how or if the organizers worked to resolve incidents. In our efforts to continue to improve how PyCon handles CoC incidents, staff, volunteers and community members participated in a CoC training prior to PyCon 2019. In having more people trained we provided a more thorough process for reporting and responses. With that in mind, we have prepared the following to help the community understand what kind of incidents we received reports about and how the PyCon staff responded. OverviewReportsThis year, PyCon Staff and Incident Responders were notified of 11 incidents. For summary purposes we categorized each report using a…

An update regarding PyCon 2019 sponsor DataCamp

The PyCon staff is saddened to hear that one of our sponsors, DataCamp, had an incident where one of their employees was sexually harassed. We were also distressed to find it was unclear if Datacamp had addressed this incident with the seriousness it requires. PyCon and the Python Software Foundation take this issue seriously and we want to emphasize---for Datacamp and everyone---that such behavior is not tolerated at PyCon or any Python Software Foundation affiliated event.

The Python community must hold itself to a higher standard. We would like to reemphasize our values of inclusiveness and a willingness to act on behalf of the vulnerable members of our community as written in the Python Software Foundation code of conduct, and our guidelines, as written up in the PyCon code of conduct.

The Python Software Foundation Board, Python Software Foundation Executive Director, and myself have taken time to discuss the situation taking into account the concerns of our community, public discu…
