PyCon schedule on Guidebook!

There's a lot going on at PyCon this year. If you've paid for tutorials, you have those to keep track of. Then there's the free sponsor tutorials. Then there's 95 talks going on in 5 parallel tracks. Then there's open spaces. Then there's evening stuff. Lots of stuff!

When you pick up your badge at registration we'll have paper schedules available, but as you can imagine with paper, it's not live and doesn't tell you when things update or give you reminders. That's where Guidebook comes in.

We have once again partnered with them to provide an excellent web and mobile schedule for you to keep track of everything at https://guidebook.com/guide/31995/. They also have apps for Windows, Android, and iOS available in your platform's app store.

Once you've opened the Guidebook app, search for PyCon 2015 and it'll be right at the top. Choose to get that guide and you'll be in sync.

Once you have the book loaded, you can view the master schedule all at once, or breakout schedules on topics such as "talks" for the Friday through Sunday presentation, "other events" for things like the PyCon Dinners, the PyLadies Auction, and more. 

If you see something you don't want to miss, click the + button to the right and set a reminder and it'll be added to your personal calendar. While I used to highlight all of the sessions I wanted to attend, the Guidebook app makes it a million times easier, especially with the reminders. If you need a reminder to wake up for Saturday's 5K Charity Fun Run, Guidebook can do that.

Check it out and see you in a few days!

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…

Hatchery programs at PyCon 2019!

The PyCon Hatchery program was introduced last year to allow for the addition to PyCon of new tracks, summits, demos, or any other imaginable events which share and fulfill the mission of the Python Software Foundation.

The Hatchery program was first run as a trial in 2018, welcoming the PyCon Charlas as it’s inaugural program. This year we are happy to have built upon that trial and are delighted to have received so many proposals and to have accepted many more events!

PyCon Charlas will be returning in 2019, PyCon Charlas ("charla" is the Spanish word for conference "talk") will be a full day track of Python talks en EspaƱol and is open to the entire Python community. This track will showcase Spanish speaking Pythonistas from a variety of countries. Their schedule will launch later this week so stay tuned! us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/charlas.
