Registration is Now Open!

The PyCon 2014 organizers are thrilled to announce the opening of registration for the April 9-17 conference, taking place at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in Montréal, Quebec, Canada. This event represents the first of two annual PyCons to take place in Montréal, following a hugely successful two-year run in Santa Clara, California.

As with years past, ticket prices remain unchanged, and value is ever increasing. At the close of talk and tutorial proposals last week, a record 565 talks were submitted -- over 100 more than for PyCon 2013. Reviewers have been hard at work to begin shaping the 2014 schedule, which is expected in December.

Quantity-based early bird rates are back for 2014, with the cap set at the first 800 tickets receiving the discounted rates. Total sales are initially being kept to 2,000 tickets. For an individual buyer, the regular $350 USD rate is cut 15% for during the early bird period to $300 USD. The $600 USD corporate rate is dropped to $450 USD during early bird, a 25% savings. Early bird student rates were halved to $100 USD for 2013 and remain as such, with a slight increase to $125 during regular sales.

A conference ticket gives an attendee admission to three days of the Python community's best talks, complete with three days of breakfast, lunch, and refreshments. Preceding the weekend talks are two days of tutorials, which run $150 USD per course. Tutorial registration will open later this year once the offerings have been chosen. All together, the price of PyCon is unrivaled for the value it provides its attendees and community year after year.




The Financial Aid program is back once again, with applications being accepted through January 1, 2014. The organizers know that registration is only one piece of a trip to another city, so there's a budget available to help make the conference more affordable for those who need it.


PyCon is made possible by generous support from the Python Software Foundation and from sponsors throughout the technology community. The organizers thank Diamond sponsors Heroku and Google, Platinum sponsors Caktus Consulting Group, Facebook, Walt Disney Animation Studios, edX, Basho Technologies, Stratasn, Python Anywhere, Lex Machina, American Greetings, PlaidCloud, Wingware, Excella Consulting, Continuum Analytics, Wargaming.net, Savoir-Faire Linux, and Enthought.

Does it make sense to register for the main conference now and tutorials later, or wait and do them all together?
Brian Curtin said…
If you're going to buy a ticket regardless of tutorials, buying now saves you a little money, and it's no problem to go in later and add the tutorials you want. If you wait, there's a good chance the early bird discount will be over so the whole purchase may be slightly more expensive.

Should the people like me who have applied for a financial aid wait to register until we hear back from the committee ?


Just want to make sure we have a chance to register in the event the application is not successful and the person still might want to attend.. Although this is unlikely in my case :)

If you apply for financial aid, at the very least you will be given an opportunity to purchase a ticket at the early-bird rate should your application not be accepted. You should wait to hear back about the application.

PyCon 2020-2021 Location

Now that registration and planning are well underway for PyCon 2019 in Cleveland, the PSF is pleased to announce that the home for PyCon 2020 and 2021 will be Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania!

The conference will be held in the beautiful David L. Lawrence Convention Center on April 15-23, 2020 and May 12-20, 2021.


The Steel City is built around the convergence of the Ohio, Allegheny, and Monongahela rivers and offers an understated mix of arts, culture, and technology. Join the Pittsburgh Python User Group for a meetup, eat dinner in a converted train station at the Grand Concourse, take a century-old cable car up the Duquesne Incline to see stunning views of the city, or visit the Robot Hall of Fame at the Carnegie Science Center's roboworld® exhibit.

In Pittsburgh, you'll find that the residents are all neighbors. And with 90 unique neighborhoods tha…

Eighth Annual PyLadies Auction at PyCon 2019

PyLadies is an international mentorship community for women that use Python. Since it’s founding in 2011, PyLadies has continued to bring women into the Python community through a variety of methods, including hosting events in local PyLadies chapters and offering grant opportunities to attend PyCon. Their mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events, and social gatherings.

The PSF subsidizes this event each year by covering the cost of the venue, food, and beverages. In addition, the PSF adds a substantial donation to the event after everything is auctioned o…
