PyCon Dinner Registration

New This Year - PyCon Dinners!

Join us Friday April 11th at 6pm after the first day of talks for great food, great company, and great speakers!
If you're new to PyCon, this is an opportunity to make new friends early on in the conference. Both dinners have an audience participation aspect designed to get people talking; especially those new to PyCon (which was 60% of attendees last year based on the post-conference survey).
And if PyCon is an annual event for you, then you already know that the conference continues with great conversations long after the talks end for the day, so pull up a chair!

Note: Advance registration is required (see registration information below).

PyCon Dinner Speakers


Brandon Rhodes

The first dinner, at the Place d'Armes Hotel, will feature Python trivia emceed by the fantastic Brandon Rhodes. He's well-loved in the Python community for his depth of Python knowledge and sense of humor, and we're very excited to answer his trivia questions.

Greg Brockman
For the second dinner, at the Vieux Port Steakhouse, we'll have Greg Brockman give a short talk and provide a few problems for people to discuss during dinner. We're expecting this to be a lot of fun, since Greg put together the incredible Stripe capture-the-flag competitions.
