Plan your PyCon with Guidebook and Duckling!

PyCon is packed with stuff to do. There are 95 talks to choose from, running in five parallel tracks. There are lightning talks Friday through Sunday. If you've registered for tutorials, you'll certainly want to remember when those are. Add in the events like open spaces, dinners, parties, and more, and there's a lot to keep track of.

Guidebook

We've partnered up with Guidebook once again to bring you an easy way to stay on top of everything PyCon has to offer with your mobile device. You can either install the app by searching in your device's app store, or scan the QR code or receive a link via text from http://guidebook.com/g/pycon2014/. Once you have Guidebook, search for "PyCon 2014" to pick up the guide.

Many thanks to Guidebook and Felix Crux for getting this great tool setup for us!

Duckling

Our friends at Caktus Group have created an app that’ll help you find, join, and create outings with fellow Pythonistas while you’re at PyCon Montreal: Duckling. It'll be live by the end of the day today (April 7).

It takes the annoyance out of trying to organize a group. There’s a list of outings, including restaurants and events, plus Yelp reviews and directions. Any outing is open to everyone, so all you have to do is show up!  

During PyCon, Caktus will have a Duckling sign out in the lobby as a meeting spot for outings, so just look for the sign as a point of departure.

Also, we hear they’ve got a duck that’s nearly seven feet tall at their booth. So go check that out!

Is the Pycon website down?

All morning, I have not been able to reach the Pycon website. Routing fails somewhere near your site (level 3).

Google Translate (which can act as an emergency proxy) can't reach https://us.pycon.org/ either.

I have been checking this blog, the Pycon twitter feed, and the python.org site but don't see any announcement so I assume it's a limited routing failure not affecting all visitors..

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. While you're out and about, see if you can count all 446 bridges in the city (that's more than you'll find in Venice, Italy)!

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 Python Software Foundation (PSF) is proud to announce the Eighth Annual PyCon Charity Auction for 2019.

PyCon 2018’s auction was a huge success raising over $30K! More than 40 items from sponsors and fellow attendees were auctioned. Attendance was overwhelming and, rather than turn more people away for 2019, we have decided to increase capacity this year!

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…
