¡Presentamos el track de PyCon Charlas!

Nos alegra anunciar el primer programa de la "Hatchery" (incubadora) en la historia de la PyCon: “PyCon Charlas”. PyCon Charlas será un día entero con un track de charlas en español abierto a toda la comunidad que tendrá lugar en la PyCon US.

¿Por qué estamos tan emocionados? Porque será el primer evento dentro del nuevo programa de "Hatchery"(incubación) que ha sido creado para apoyar y dar un espacio a la comunidad para presentar nuevos eventos dentro de la PyCon. Además será el primer track de charlas de la PyCon US que se dará en un lenguaje diferente al inglés.
Un porcentaje significativo de la población estadounidense, más del 12%, habla español y las comunidades hispanohablantes de python en America Latina y Europa están creciendo rápidamente con una gran aceptación en conferencias y reuniones. PyCon Charlas dará visibilidad a los pythonistas hispanohablantes dándoles un espacio en la PyCon más grande del mundo para dar y recibir charlas en español.
Todo el mundo está invitado a unirse a nosotros en las PyCon Charlas el viernes 11 de mayo (primer día de la conferencia). Aún estamos planeando los detalles pero el horario de las charlas coincidirá con el de la conferencia principal y el track se situará cerca, en el recinto principal de la PyCon. ¡Esto significa que puedes pasarte a ver alguna charla o quedarte todo el día! ¡Vamos a pasarlo genial!
Además, si hablas español, ¿por qué no envías una propuesta de charla? Si lo hablas como segundo, tercero o veinteavo idioma, por favor no dudes en participar. El periodo de propuestas se abrirá el primerouno de febrero así que entra en este link para ver más información sobre cómo enviar tu propuesta.
Si no te sientes cómodo con dar una charla o solo hablas un poquito de español pero quieres mejorar ¿Qué mejor forma que asistiendo una una charla sobre python en español? Normalmente las charlas técnicas son más fáciles de seguir para los principiantes que una conversación.

Introducing the PyCon Charlas Track!

We are excited to announce the first hatchery program in the history of PyCon: “PyCon Charlas”. PyCon Charlas ("charla" is the Spanish word for conference "talk") will be a full day track of Python talks en Español at PyCon US and open to the entire Python community.

Why are we excited? Because the this will be the first event in PyCon's new hatchery program, which is built to provide support and space for the community to introduce new events to PyCon. It will also be the first time a track of talks at PyCon US has been given in a language other than English.
A significant percentage of the U.S. population (12%+) speak Spanish, and Spanish speaking Python communities in Latin America and Europe are growing rapidly with booming attendance at conferences and meetups. PyCon Charlas will showcase Spanish speaking Pythonistas by giving them space at the world's largest PyCon to give and hear talks in Spanish.
Everyone is invited to join us at Pycon Charlas on Friday May 11th (the first day of the main PyCon conference). We're still planning the details, but the schedule of talks will match the main conference schedule and the track will be hosted close by in the main PyCon venue. That means you can pop over to catch a single talk or stay for the entire day! It's all good!
If you can speak Spanish, why not submit a proposal for a charla? If you speak Spanish as a second, third or twelfth language, please do not hesitate to participate! The call for proposals opens the 1st of February, so head over to this link for further information on how to submit your proposal.
If you don’t feel comfortable proposing a talk, or you only speak Spanish “un poquito” but would like to improve, what better way to practice than attending a talk about Python in Spanish! Technical talks are often easier for beginners to follow than conversation.
Please feel free to get in touch with the PyCon Charlas team either via our twitter or our Facebook page.

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…

Eighth Annual PyLadies Auction at PyCon 2019

PyLadies is an international mentorship community for women that use Python. Since it’s founding in 2011, PyLadies has continued to bring women into the Python community through a variety of methods, including hosting events in local PyLadies chapters and offering grant opportunities to attend PyCon. Their mission is to promote, educate and advance a diverse Python community through outreach, education, conferences, events, and social gatherings.

The Python Software Foundation (PSF) is proud to announce the Eighth Annual PyCon Charity Auction for 2019.

PyCon 2018’s auction was a huge success raising over $30K! More than 40 items from sponsors and fellow attendees were auctioned. Attendance was overwhelming and, rather than turn more people away for 2019, we have decided to increase capacity this year!

The PSF subsidizes this event each year by covering the cost of the venue, food, and beverages. In addition, the PSF adds a substantial donation to the event after everything is auctioned o…
