Reminder: Financial Aid requests due December 31

As registration continues and we approach 1100 attendees, don’t forget that financial aid applications are due by December 31!

This year’s financial aid budget has increased significantly to help you, the attendees, make the trip to another great year of PyCon. The organizers provide the slate and fill in a few blanks on the schedule, but PyCon is what you make of it. It’s the hallway chatter, lunch conversations, dinner plans, and the entire other conference that goes on at night - the open spaces.

The financial aid program can assist ticket, travel, and hotel expenses, and there are questions for all of the above for you to estimate your plane or train tickets and to choose how long you’ll be staying. We want to make PyCon a possibility for as many people as we can help, so please be accurate with your requests!

PyCon 2013 also includes a grant program run by PyLadies to help more women join the fun at PyCon. This grant started last year and was a great success, so we’re happy to continue the tradition and grow a more diverse conference year after year!

You will need to document that you indeed arrived in the United States and were denied entry. If despite…

It’s having over 3,000 people in one place to learn from and share with. It’s joining a conversation in the hallway with the creators of open source projects. It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…
