Signup for Sponsor Tutorials!

Our Sponsor Tutorial schedule has come together and we've opened registration on Eventbrite! Running Wednesday and Thursday April 8-9, these free tutorials are offered by several of our generous sponsors. While registration for these tutorials is not required, it helps us plan for food and room size.

Check out the schedule at https://us.pycon.org/2015/schedule/sponsor-tutorials/. Each tutorial is 1.5 hours, and free!

We kick off Wednesday with David Gouldin of Heroku walking through building and deploying applications on Heroku. After lunch, Eric Feng of Dropbox introduces the Dropbox API and will take attendees through authentication to reading and writing files. There are two other open slots on the Wednesday schedule, and we'll update this post once those are known.

Thursday's schedule begins with Steve Downer and Chris Wilcox showing off how to build a Django app on the Microsoft Azure cloud. The folks at Code Climate are going to be talking about a number of important development topics, including how to be provide quality code review and build an effective pull request based workflow. Kyle Kelly of Rackspace will be discussing cloudpipe and showing attendees how to contribute to it. Wrapping up the Thursday schedule is Google, who will be hosting a trio of yet-to-be-announced talks during their time slot.


If you're interested in our instructor-led tutorials, spaces are still open in many of them, but keep in mind that those are likely sell out. The tutorial schedule is available here, and you can register for $150 per tutorial here.

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon. The conference itself is three days worth of our community’s 95 best talks, amazing keynote speakers each morning, and our famed lightning talks to close out each day, but it’s much more than that. It’s having over 3,000 people in one place to learn from and share with. It’s joining a conversation in the hallway with the creators of open source projects. It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…

PyCon Opens Financial Aid Applications

Even though PyCon prides itself on being an affordable conference, registration is one of several expenses an attendee must incur, and it’s likely the smallest one. Flying, whether halfway around the world or from a few hundred miles away, is more expensive. Staying in a hotel for a few days is also more expensive. All together, the cost of attending a conference can become prohibitively expensive. That’s where our Financial Aid program comes in. We’re opening applications for Financial Aid today, and we’ll be accepting them through February 15, 2018.
Once you have an account on the site, you can apply here or through your dashboard.
We offer need-based grants to enable people from across our community to attend PyCon.
