PyCon 2018 Registration is Now Open!

We’re thrilled to announce the opening of registration for PyCon 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio! The prior six PyCons have sold out, so prepare for another one and get your tickets early. The first 800 tickets sold are priced at an early bird discount, saving over 20% on corporate tickets and over 12% on individual tickets. Students save $25 if they purchase early!

To get started, create an account and head to https://us.pycon.org/2018/registration/ to get your tickets!

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 started with Python for the first time. It’s a whole host of events that brings together Python users from around the world. Oh, plus breakfast and lunch are included.

Pricing

If your employer is paying, we ask that you pay the corporate rate of $550 under early bird pricing, and $700 after that.

If you’re paying your own way, we invite you to pay the individual rate of $350 under early bird pricing, and $400 after that.

If you’re a student, the early bird rate is $100, which only raises slightly to $125.

Hotels

Once you’ve paid for the conference registration, you can proceed to book a hotel through our registration site at rates that we’ve negotiated.

We strongly recommend booking hotels through our registration site. In the past, attendees have been contacted by third-parties offering to book accommodations, but they often amount to being scams. We are unable to assist with any accommodations made outside of our website. See https://us.pycon.org/2018/venue/ for more details.

Financial Aid

While we work hard to keep PyCon affordable, there’s no way around it: traveling, staying in a hotel, and everything that comes with going to a conference for a few days can be expensive. That’s why we created our Financial Aid program years ago, and that’s why we have a budget to help members of our community make the trip to PyCon a possibility. We’ve also added speaker grants to assist those presenting at the conference. For more information, see https://us.pycon.org/2018/financial-assistance/.

Childcare

We will be offering childcare for PyCon 2018 but have not worked out all of the details yet. Once we’re satisfied with our ability to offer a quality and trusted childcare provider, we’ll be sharing that info here on the blog. Current plans include childcare availability May 11-13 from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM for $50 per day.

Tutorials

As we’re still accepting proposals for our tutorials through November 24 (submit one here: https://us.pycon.org/2018/speaking/tutorials/), only conference registration is available at this point. Once our program committee has scheduled the selected tutorials, we’ll open registration for them and announce it here.

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 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…
