Only a few sponsor booths are left

We are nearly out of booths! While PyCon does continue to accept new sponsors once we run out of Expo Hall booths, and those final sponsors enjoy almost every benefit of their sponsorship level, they are placed on a waiting list for a booth and can miss out on one of the most exciting ways to connect with attendees at PyCon.

If you haven’t yet applied to sponsor PyCon 2016 because you have been eyeing the larger sponsorship levels — Platinum, Diamond, and Keystone — but have not yet reached a decision, then this year presents a special opportunity. With the markets uncertain and PyCon sponsorship down at every level, we have run out of Silver and Gold booths before running out of premium ones! Here is what remains in our inventory:

You can snag one of these last booths by filling out our Sponsorship Form or can learn more details by reading our Sponsorship Prospectus.

If instead of staffing an Expo Hall booth you are interested in more unique ways of supporting the conference, check out the À La Carte section of our Sponsorship prospectus. One need in particular stands out:

PyCon talks featured live CART for the first time last year, and we received a positive response from our attendees for making the talks more accessible. As a recent and high-profile addition to the conference, captioning lets a sponsor put their name specifically behind the idea that PyCon should continue to expand the range of attendees for which the conference provides explicit support.

Whether you are able to sponsor PyCon at an extravagant level or a relatively modest one, please know that your sponsorship is important! You sponsors make it possible for the Python community to assemble each year at ticket costs that are a fraction of comparable industry conferences, and make conference attendance and financial aid possible for many who could otherwise not attend. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you in Portland!

You get a package that is hard to beat when you register for PyCon.

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…

Python Education Summit celebrates its 6th year in 2018

Teachers, educators, and Python users: come and share your projects, experiences, and tools of the trade you use to teach coding and Python to your students. The Annual Python Education Summit is held in conjunction with PyCon 2018, taking place on Thursday May 10. Our Call for Proposals is open until January 3rd, and we want to hear from you! See https://us.pycon.org/2018/speaking/education-summit/ for more details.

What we look for in Education Summit talks are ideas, experiences, and best practices on how teachers and programmers have implemented instruction in their schools, communities, books, tutorials, and other places of learning by using Python.

We urge anyone in this space to submit a talk! We’re looking for people who want to share their knowledge and leverage…

How to get ready for the PyCon development sprints

[A guest post by Kushal Das, one of the 2016 Sprint Coordinators]So — you have already decided to join in the PyCon development sprints! The sprints run for four days, from Thursday to Sunday after the conference. You do not have to be registered for the conference to attend the sprints! Some teams plan to write code over all four days, while some projects plan a shorter sprint if the organizers cannot stay for all four days.Can you start getting prepared for the sprint ahead of time? Yes!There are several things you can do ahead of time, that can save effort once you arrive at the sprints — and some preparations can even be made at home, before you arrive at PyCon:Have your operating system updated and patched — whether Mac, Windows, or Linux. This eliminates one possible source of problems with getting software up and running.Go ahead and install the version control system that will be used by the projects you are interested in. If you install both git and Mercurial on your computer…
