Announcing the PyCon 2013 Job Fair Participants

Looking for a job? PyCon knows where to find them: the Job Fair. On Sunday March 17th from 10-1:00 PM, we’re hosting our own job fair where you can mingle with the coolest Python-using companies around and see who’s building the next great product, who’s using what tools, and most of all, who’s hiring!

Last year’s event was a great success with a lot of traffic and a lot of resumé exchanges. Some companies were even doing mini-interviews at their table. We’re aware of numerous people hired out of the event, so sharpen your skills and take the your newfound knowledge from the previous three days of talks to the table and see who’s hiring.

The current list of companies attending the job fair include:



Be sure to stop by their tables and see what’s up!

If your organization is interested in joining the job fair, please email Ewa Jodlowska at ewa@python.org!

Wow, there's a lot more here than at https://us.pycon.org/2013/sponsors/jobs/

Is that page only for sponsors? It's a bit confusing to have different info between the two.

We allow sponsors to put jobs up on that page if they have something to put up there, but not all of them take advantage of that. This post is about companies who will be running a table in the on-site job fair, and we're getting more sponsors involved (the list has already been updated once).
Those names look really impressive. Wonder how much do these companies pay for the best pool of talent in the market?

Austin - the details for sponsorship are available at https://us.pycon.org/2013/sponsors/prospectus/

We currently have two gold level sponsorships available!

Code of Conduct Updates for PyCon 2018

With PyCon 2018 approaching, I’m excited to share some work that the PyCon staff, volunteers, and Python Software Foundation have undertaken in preparation! The Python community and thus the PyCon community is always evolving and growing. In light of this it is crucial that we periodically reconsider and adjust the way that we interact within these communities. In 2012 PyCon adopted a Code of Conduct to foster a more welcoming environment at the conference and provide policies and procedures for addressing violations. Each year since, changes have been adopted to work towards our goal of an enjoyable and fulfilling conference for all attendees. For 2018, we took a larger step and worked with a third party expert fromOtter Techto reevaluate and improve our Code of Conduct, reporting procedures, and staff response procedures. Sage fromOtter Techcame with a resounding recommendation fromNorth Bay Pythonorganizers. In this post, I’d like to summarize the changes we’re bringing this year. If y…

Keep an eye out for the Open Space events at PyCon this year!

These meetup-like events are a great way to learn something new or connect with others who share similar interests. Due to their self-organized nature and the breadth of topics, there is bound to be an Open Space event that can enrich your conference experience. In the past, Open Spaces have included a wide range of topics such as natural language processing, web frameworks, yoga, and playing board games. Any topic that two or more attendees are interested in could be a good candidate for an Open Space.

Open Spaces are held during the three main conference days in meeting rooms reserved for these events. Any attendee can create an Open Space event and reserve a room by adding a card to the Open Spaces boards found near the registration desk. Checking these boards regularly during the conference, subscribing to the hashtag #PyConOpenSpace, and following @openspacesbot on Twitter are ways to keep informed about upcoming Open Spaces.

How & why cities and dates are selected for Pycon

Foreword from the Chair: The PyCon staff, volunteers, tutorial presenters, speakers, poster presenters, and community members have been hard at work preparing for PyCon 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. Along the way, we’ve gotten a chance to have some solid discussions about what makes PyCon good as well as where it can improve.

In February one of those discussions was around the dates when PyCon 2018 will be occurring, specifically the conflict with Mother’s Day 2018. The outcome of that discussion was a commitment by the PyCon staff to better communicate what decisions and compromises were made along the way and how they were considered.

PyCon is run by the Python Software Foundation, which is a grant giving non-profit. Many misunderstand or are unaware of this relationship, but the Python Software Foundation relies on maintaining a strict budget for the operation of PyCon in order to continue its grants programs and other financial responsibilities.

The PyCon staff and Python Software Foundat…
