PyCon 2015 Registration is Open!

It's that time again: registration for PyCon is now open!

Here are some quick details:

  • The last three PyCons have sold out. We expect the same for 2015. 
  • The same low rates we've had for years are in effect, including the 50% discounted student tickets.
  • Early bird rates are in effect for the first 800 tickets sold.
  • Financial Aid is available! We accept applications through January 1, 2015.
  • While the event takes place in Canada, ticket prices are in USD.


PyCon is simply a tremendous value. The conference takes place over three days and includes a total of 95 talks, a set of great keynotes, and includes breakfast and lunch. Add in all of the Open Spaces and Birds of a Feather sessions and the fact that over 2,000 Python users are in the same place and the deal gets even sweeter. If you buy your tickets early, you can save 15-25%!

On top of that, it's led by two days offering 32 tutorials at a cost of $150 each, with morning and afternoon sessions both days. You get three hours of instruction by some of the best in this community, along with lunch, at a great rate. Many of our tutorial instructors are professional trainers who bring their expertise and materials to the conference at a discount.

Hotels

Buying tickets is part one, having a place to stay in Montréal is part two. Unlike previous locations, the conference center is a standalone building, but is surrounded by many hotels. We've negotiated conference rates with several of them, and you can book rooms with them through our registration page.

Financial Aid

While PyCon is among the best values for a software conference, especially of its size, it still requires some amount of travel and lodging expenses for a significant portion of our attendees. Thankfully the Python Software Foundation and our generous sponsors give us the ability to run a financial aid program to help more people make it to PyCon! The application period is now open and runs through January 1, 2015 - apply today!

Call for Proposals

Our CFP is open for two more weeks, through September 15. We need talks of all types to fill out our schedule, and we want you to help us with that. Everyone who uses Python brings something different to the table, and we want to cover both a breadth of topics that interest our community, and depths that help level everyone up. We encourage everyone to submit proposals whether you're a first timer or a speaking veteran.

Sponsors

PyCon wouldn't be possible without the help of our generous sponsors, all of whom we many thanks to. If you or your organization are interested in helping PyCon, please email Diana Clarke, conference chair, at diana.joan.clarke@gmail.com.

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 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…
