PyCon 2013 Student Rate Reduced To $100

If you’re a student, we want you to come to PyCon. We’ve always thought the conference provides a great experience at a great price, but we’ve sweetened the deal for 2013: half price tickets for students! Register now!

$100 is the new cost for a student to get in the door for the March 15-17 conference in Santa Clara, CA. That $100 gets you a seat for three days of our always excellent talks, including the already announced keynote speakers. That $100 gets you breakfast and lunch all three days. That $100 includes coffee and snack breaks all three days. That $100 gets you into something awesome, something we’ve been looking forward to since we got on the plane from PyCon 2012.

Although the conference schedule hasn’t been released yet, we’ve begun reviewing talks as they come in and we’re really excited to put together an even better schedule than 2012. Take a look at what we had on stage in 2012 http://pyvideo.org/category/17/pycon-us-2012 for a taste of what you’ll be in for.

Tutorials will again run the two days before the conference, March 13 & 14, and the schedule is expected to be announced in October. If the last few years are any indication, we’ll have some great selections to choose from. Each tutorial costs $150, and there are a total of four sessions across the two days for you to choose from. Take a look at last year’s schedule for a sense of what we had: https://us.pycon.org/2012/schedule/tutorials/.

While the talks and tutorials really are great, there’s more to this conference than what’s on the schedule. The environment alone is worth the $100, especially for a budding student. From the people you’ll meet at lunch to the conversations you’ll run into in the hallways, PyCon is an experience we hope to involve more students in. The expo hall and job fair are perfect places for students to network, and many organizations even interview candidates on-site.

Early bird rates apply to the first 1000 tickets, so get your $100 passes while they’re still available. The regular rate only goes up $25 which is still an incredible value for what you get out of the conference.


Students are invited to apply for financial aid to help out with their trip to PyCon. We wrote about some changes to the program this morning, and you can apply directly through this form!

We hope to see you in March!
Register today!

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…

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…
