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!

PyCon 2018 Call for Proposals is Open!

It’s here! PyCon 2018’s Call for Proposals has officially opened for talks, tutorials, posters, and education summit presentations. 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.

Before we dive in, the deadlines:
Tutorial proposals are due November 24, 2017.Talk, Poster, and Education Summit proposals are due January 3, 2018.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.

We need beginner, intermediate, and advanced proposals on all sorts of topics. We also need b…

PyCon 2018 Launches New Site, Sponsorship Search

After two great years in Portland, PyCon is shipping off to Cleveland for the 2018 and 2019 renditions of the Python community's largest gathering. PyCon 2018 will take place May 9 through 17 with two days of tutorials, three days of talks, and four days of development sprints.

For more information, check out our newly refreshed website at https://us.pycon.org/2018/ and follow us here on the blog and at @pycon on Twitter.

New Website

The new site features a design centered on the historic landmark Terminal Tower, a 52 story skyscraper that overlooks downtown Cleveland. When it opened in 1930, the tower was the fourth tallest building in the world and the tallest building outside of New York City. Though its height no longer tops the charts, the tower and surrounding Tower City area remain highly important to the city. What once was a beacon to guide ship captains to Cleveland's port and airplane pilots to its airport, the tower now includes 508 LEDs that light up for the holida…

How to get ready for the PyCon development sprints

[A guest post by Kushal Das, one of the 2016 Sprint Coordinators]So — you have already decided to join in the PyCon development sprints! The sprints run for four days, from Thursday to Sunday after the conference. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the sprints! Some teams plan to write code over all four days, while some projects plan a shorter sprint if the organizers cannot stay for all four days.Can you start getting prepared for the sprint ahead of time? Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
