Sponsor Workshops - Sign up today!

We're happy to announce the Sponsor Workshop series, taking place on Wednesday April 9 and Thursday April 10, the two days leading up to the conference. In a similar fashion to our tutorials, our sponsors are leading 90 minute sessions on a variety of topics. Oh, and they're free!

If you'd like to come to any of the workshops, it would be helpful if you RSVP'ed here. It's not required, but it helps us estimate how much food and drinks we should have for those times. 

Wednesday - 9:00 AM

John Wetherill of ActiveState will be introducing Platform-as-a-Service and container technologies, along with how to design and architect applications to take advantage of them. He also covers topics like deployment and migration, and gives examples of monitoring, logging, and debugging cloud-based applications.

Wednesday - 3:30 PM

Jacob Kaplan-Moss introduces Heroku by guiding attendees through the process of deploying and managing applications on the platform. With only a basic knowledge of Python, attendees will leave with an understanding of what it takes to build and deploy applications, monitor and configure them, scale the applications up and down, and get a taste of the Heroku Platform API.

Thursday - 9:00 AM

Jesse Noller will show you what it takes to build scalable applications on the Rackspace Cloud. Built on open source tools, from the OpenStack platform to the SDKs in a variety of languages, the workshop aims to show you how to develop and deploy your own applications on any OpenStack cloud.

Thursday - 1:30 PM

Andrew Godwin gives an inside look to the Django patterns in use at Eventbrite and Lanyrd to handle massive datasets and millions of visitors. While Django familiarity is helpful, the workshop aims to be useful for developers of other web stacks as well, looking into topics like task queues, database scaling techniques, zero downtime deploys, and more.

Thursday - 3:30 PM

Led by Wesley Chun, Google engineers from three locations will be splitting up their workshop period into three different talks. Marc Cohen and Brian Dorsey will talk about bringing Python applications into the Google Cloud Platform. Alex Perry will cover both beginner and advanced uses of regular expressions, as well as evaluate the performance characteristics of Python's standard library regular expressions versus those of RE2. Finally, Thomas Wouters covers Python from the maintainer side, covering how Google moved away from platform installations into looking after their own build, and everything that came with.

There are also workshops by Basho's Tom Santero, covering how to build applications on Riak, and Graham Dumpleton of New Relic on measuring all the things!

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…
