Early bird tickets halfway sold out. Get yours today!

We’re about halfway sold out of early bird tickets for PyCon 2013 with 463 signed up, so hurry up and register before the rates increase! With discounts up to 25%, purchasing early makes this already affordable conference an even better value. Only the first 1000 of 2500 total tickets will receive the early bird discount, so act fast.

The corporate rate for PyCon 2013 remains the same as it has been for years, coming in at $450 USD if you buy early. The regular rate goes up to $600, which is still a steal when it comes to conference tickets. Companies have long been sending their employees to PyCon, and 2013 will be no different. With the conference back in Silicon Valley for another year and all 2500 tickets sure to sell out, the networking potential for attendees is incredible. The maintainers of most major open source projects will be there, and the conference environment is a great place to find out what everyone else is doing.

Even outside of the talks and tutorials, PyCon is an excellent venue for learning. Whether it’s a chat in the hallways, lunch conversation at a random table, or a quick question while waiting for the elevator, the learning potential is incredible. If you want to find out where Python is going, you’ll want to be at PyCon.

If you’re paying your own way to PyCon, the $350 regular ticket price is dropped down to $300 if you purchase early. Those paying their own way and in need of assistance with the trip will be pleased to know we’ve made financial assistance easier for PyCon 2013. Now there’s a unified application process, and we’ve increased the budget. Just fill out this application and we’ll try to help as many people as we can!

Student rates have been cut in half to make it easier for the next wave of Python experts to join in the fun, with a new early bird rate of $100, and a slight increase to $125 for the regular rate. PyCon is an incredible value for all attendees, but especially students. The open slate that is PyCon provides a great opportunity for students to join in the excellent discussions that the conference spurs, and exposes them to a 24/7 environment of learning and hacking. At $100, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value in a three day conference. We encourage students to apply for financial aid if needed!


We’d like to thank all of our sponsors for not only making the conference possible in the first place, but for generously supporting us in keeping this conference affordable. It’s because of the outpouring of sponsorship we’ve received that the conference has gotten bigger and better, while costs to attendees have remained the same. The support from sponsors allows us to create a highly valuable conference experience that benefits not only the attendees but the greater community as well.

PyLadies is an international mentorship community for women that use Python.

The PSF subsidizes this event each year by covering the cost of the venue, food, and beverages. In addition, the PSF adds a su…
