Announcing PyCon Australia 2013 – July 5–7, Hobart, Tasmania!

PyCon Australia is the national conference for users of the Python Programming Language. On 5–7 July 2013, we're returning to Hobart, Tasmania, bringing together students, enthusiasts, and professionals with a love of Python from around Australia, and from all over the World.

Once again, we'll have a weekend packed full of amazing content on all aspects of the Python ecosystem, presented by experts and core developers of the tools and frameworks you use every day.

We're excited about the return of Friday Night CodeWars, and of course, we've got the usual conference dinner, as well as two days of developer sprints following the conference proceedings.

We can't wait to share more about the conference in the coming months. Until then, subscribe to our announcement listfollow us on twitter, or add yourself to our Lanyrd page.

Now with three days of talks!

In 2013, before the main event kicks off, we're welcoming two new mini-conferences on the Friday 5 July.

DjangoCon AU is Australia's first national gathering for developers using the Django Web Framework. Presented by the Django Software Foundation, this mini-conference will feature a day of Django-specific talks and tutorials to support the growing community of Australian Django Developers.

The Python on OpenStack day is a day of in-depth talks and tutorials covering the OpenStack cloud platform – one of the most important growing Open Source Python projects – for Python developers.

 

Help shape our programme

Every year, we strive to bring the best of Python from around Australia to the one place, but we can always use some help to find the Python topics that you want to see at PyCon Australia.

If there's a topic that you really want to see at PyCon Australia, or there's a speaker who you think we really need to have on our programme, then head over to our topic or speaker suggestion form, and let us know all about it!

Dates & Venue

We'll be opening our Call for Proposals in late February, and we'll be closing it in early April.

Early Bird registration will open towards the end of March, and will run through April. Registration will remain open until close to the conference opening.

The conference will be held in July, where we're moving into a bigger, better venue at the Wrest Point Convention Centre in Hobart. The Miniconfs will be held on Friday 5 July, the conference proceedings are on Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 July, and the post-conference sprints will be on Monday 8 & Tuesday 9 July.

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…
