Startup Row is back

Startup Row is back – our offer to showcase the most promising Python startups out there!


The concept is very simple: if you convince us that your young company is the next big thing, we are going to give you a free booth for one day in our Expo Hall and two free passes to the conference.


Startup Row gives you a unique opportunity to connect with a global, highly technical crowd.  Among the 2000+ PyCon attendees, could be a new co-founder, your next investor, a future business partner, or even hundreds of new users, depending on who your target market is.  These are stories we’ve heard from previous Startup Row nominees.


The technological landscape of tomorrow is yours to make.  Come and show us that it's one where Python shines.


The rules are simple:
  • You must have less than 15 employees, including founders, and be less than two years old.
  • You must use Python somewhere in your startup. Backend, frontend, testing, wherever.
  • If selected, you have to come and staff your booth for the Expo Hall hours on your appointed day.  We will do our best to give you the day that works best for you (either Friday or Saturday).
  • No repeats. If you were on startup row last year, your startup is not eligible. We want to give a chance to as many startups as possible.

Startups will be selected by our panel of judges based on their business potential.  Ambitious new approaches to solving old problems count, so are world changing applications of cutting edge technology.  There are few wrong answers here.




All submissions must be received by March 1st, 2014.

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…
