Welcome to PyCon 2013

It is with a great deal of pride on behalf of the entire Python Community, the Python Software Foundation and all of the PyCon volunteers that we announce PyCon 2013 is a go. Today, July 9th we officially open the doors - our Call For Proposals is officially open, meaning the entire community can submit talks, tutorials and posters.

PyCon 2013 will be held March 13-21st in the same Santa Clara location as 2012.

We are extremely excited - last year alone saw PyCon US grow to over 2300 attendees, with 135 sponsors. This year we have set a hard cap on attendance of 2500 attendees, and we are on track to hit that.

We also have a lot of surprises up our sleeves for PyCon 2013, we want to destroy all of the records set in 2012 - attendees, sponsors, talks, community - we want to make this a watershed year for the entire Python community and set the momentum for the future.

We are also pleased to announce that not only is sponsorship open that includes a bunch of new benefits for sponsors; but we have a launched with an astounding 27 launch day sponsors and partners including:

Platinum Sponsors

Gold Sponsors

Silver Sponsors

OSS/Community Partners

These sponsors represent not only amazing dedication to the Python Community due to many of them being sponsors year after year, but they also represent the willingness to invest in the Python Community and PyCon significantly and early. We can not thank them enough.

These sponsors - all of our sponsors - help us maintain a robust affordable conference and help us maintain a financial aid program you would be hard pressed to find in other conferences. They help us, the conference, the community and the Foundation have an amazing outreach to everyone.

Thank you; we look forward to seeing all of you in Santa Clara. We've got a lot of awesome things planned, and we can't wait.

Hatchery Program Returns for 2019

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 events such as Young Coders, the Education Summit, Language Summit, Poster Session, and most recently the PyCon Charlas. The conference strives to be globally representative by promoting diversity and inclusion through these additional events and outreach programs. Our community works to approach these goals year on year. While we regularly receive requests to add events to PyCon, we have not had an established process for accepting and evaluating the community’s suggestions. By introducing the PyCon Hatchery Program in 2018, we took an initial step to introduce a long term process for evolving PyCon. What is our 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 programs th…

Pycon 2019 Call for Proposals is Open!

The time is upon us again! PyCon 2019’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, education summit presentations, as well as the hatchery program PyCon Charlas. 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.

Please make note of important deadlines for submissions:
Tutorial proposals are due November 26, 2018.Talk, Charlas, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2019.
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.

PyCon 2018 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

The PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. For 2018 the Code of Conduct underwent an extensive overhaul, our procedures for reporting and responding to incidents were improved, and our on-site methods were improved. You can read more about the updates for 2018 here. Cumulatively these changes were meant to improve the safety, welcoming nature, and overall inclusivity of PyCon. Based on initial responses, feedback, and incidents reported this year we feel that we made progress on those goals. 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. 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…
