Announcing the PyCon 2013 talks!


On behalf of the PyCon Program Committee, I'm thrilled to announce the list of talks for PyCon 2013! It's an amazing program that's a true testament to Python's reach: we'll have talks covering everything from robotics to REST; from Chef to cloud computing; from PostgreSQL to PyPy; and everything in between. There are some incredibly deep technical talks as well as talks for people completely new to Python and programming in general. Whether you're into web development, relational or non-relational databases, design, testing, debugging, high performance, or scientific computing – PyCon 2013 has you covered.

As you may already know, this was an incredibly hard decision for the Program Commitee: we had over 450 submissions for only 114 slots on the program. Further, the quality of submissions was very high; the committee debated each and every talk very closely. I want to sincerely thank everyone who submitted a talk: the quality of PyCon comes from our speakers, and this year you all blew it out of the water.

Over the next few weeks we'll finish up and publish the conference schedule, so stay tuned.

Remember: there are only 2,500 tickets available for PyCon 2013, and we will sell out. So if you want to check out this amazing program, you should register now!

See you in Santa Clara!

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 2019 Launches Financial Aid

The PyCon conference prides itself on being affordable. However, registration is only one of several expenses an attendee must incur, and it’s likely the smallest one. Flying, whether halfway around the world or from a few hundred miles away, is more expensive. Staying in a hotel for a few days is also more expensive. All together, the cost of attending a conference can become prohibitively expensive. That’s where PyCon's Financial Aid program comes in. We’re opening applications for Financial Aid today, and we’ll be accepting them through February 12, 2019.
To apply, first set up an account on the site, and then you will be able to fill out the application here or through your dashboard.

For those proposing talks, tutorials, or posters, selecting the “I require a speaker grant if my proposal is accepted” box on your speaker profile serves as your request, so you do not need to fill out the financial aid application. Upon acceptance, we’ll contact the speakers who checked that box t…
