You should submit a poster! Nov 1 Deadline

While reviewers are hard at work putting together the schedule of talks and tutorials, and we recently closed the window for early submission of lightning talks, there's still another way for you to present at PyCon: the poster session! The poster session got its start at PyCon 2010 in Atlanta and quickly grew into a very popular event that we're happy to have on the schedule once again for PyCon 2014 in Montreal. We're accepting poster proposals through November 1, so put yours together soon!

On Sunday April 13, the last day of the conference, the poster session takes over the expo hall area and offers a great way for people to share their latest projects and ideas via poster. While the presentation medium is low tech, the presentations have been anything but low tech. We've seen some really interesting projects presented over the years, and the makeup of the event has lead to some great conversations that we're still thinking about.

Chad Cooper wrote a nice post about the session for PyCon 2013, and we have an FAQ page up on our site at https://us.pycon.org/2014/posters/faq/. The full details of our poster proposal process are available at https://us.pycon.org/2014/posters/!

If you haven't registered for the conference yet, we're still within the early bird pricing, with discounts of up to 25% off! See https://us.pycon.org/2014/registration/ for more information and to buy your tickets today. If financial aid would help make your trip possible, check out https://us.pycon.org/2014/assistance/ and apply!

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…

PyCon 2019 - Call for Sponsors

It seems like PyCon 2018 was just last week, but the 2019 edition will be here before we know it. We want to say thanks to all our sponsors who helped make the conference a huge success. This year, we welcomed 3,260 attendees from 48 different countries around the world, strengthening the connection in our beloved community even more.  The invaluable and generous support of our PyCon sponsors enables the Python Software Foundation to help and improve the Python community worldwide by promoting sprints, meetups, events, projects, fiscal sponsorships, software development, open source projects and the Python Ambassador Program – which helps the creation of communities where Python is not well known.  PyCon sponsorship enabled us to award $118,543 USD in financial aid to 143 attendees in 2018. It also generates 80% of the PSF's revenue, making financial aid, conferences, workshops, and training support possible. As a result, in 2017 $271,138 was awarded to grant recipients in 34 differ…

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon.

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…
