Signup for PyCon Dinners led by Jessica McKellar and Brandon Rhodes!

While the cost of PyCon includes breakfast and lunch as well as coffee and snacks, dinner is on your own, and for good reason. It's Montréal! Get out and enjoy the city, find some good food and drink, and hang out with new groups of people.

To make it even easier, this year we've organized another series of PyCon Dinners, one led by Jessica McKellar and one by Brandon Rhodes. These events are a great way to wrap up the first day of PyCon, taking place Friday April 10 at 6 PM, with a great three course meal with new and old friends. As 60% of attendees surveyed last year stated it was their first PyCon, these dinners are a great way to kick off the weekend and make new connections and setup plans for more dinners or other late night festivities.

Jessica is a director of the Python Software Foundation and has been instrumental in outreach efforts around the Python community, especially when it comes to PyCon. She's also a contributor to Twisted and has worked a lot with the OpenHatch project. She's a very experienced speaker with a ton of knowledge and information to share, and will make an excellent host for an excellent meal.

Brandon is a returning veteran of running a PyCon Dinner, having run last year's as a Python trivia game. He's also an experienced speaker of the Python conference circuit, and will be the chair of PyCons 2016 and 2017 when we head to Portland, Oregon after this year's work as co-chair.

Tickets are required for either dinner, with the meal price subsidized by the PSF for a cost of $45. Each prix fixe meal includes a delicious starter, main course, and dessert, with options available for dietary needs.

Check out the options on https://us.pycon.org/2015/events/dinners/ and sign up today? You can add a dinner ticket to your existing registration at https://us.pycon.org/2015/registration/.

If you don't have tickets to PyCon yet, hurry up because they are selling out very very soon.

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.
