¡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.

Registration is Now Open!

The PyCon 2014 organizers are thrilled to announce the opening of registration for the April 9-17 conference, taking place at the Palais des congrès de Montréal in Montréal, Quebec, Canada. This event represents the first of two annual PyCons to take place in Montréal, following a hugely successful two-year run in Santa Clara, California.

As with years past, ticket prices remain unchanged, and value is ever increasing. At the close of talk and tutorial proposals last week, a record 565 talks were submitted -- over 100 more than for PyCon 2013. Reviewers have been hard at work to begin shaping the 2014 schedule, which is expected in December.

Quantity-based early bird rates are back for 2014, with the cap set at the first 800 tickets receiving the discounted rates. Total sales are initially being kept to 2,000 tickets. For an individual buyer, the regular $350 USD rate is cut 15% for during the early bird period to $300 USD. The $600 USD corporate rate is dropped to $450 USD during early…

Young Coder Tutorial Helps Daughter, Father Get Into Python

PyCon 2013’s “Change the Future” theme was a nod to Python’s growing use in education, and to devices like the Raspberry Pi and their targeted child audience. Before 2,500 attendees descended upon the Friday through Sunday conference, which gave each of them a Raspberry Pi, kids filled a lab for two days of free tutorials on the tiny computer that taught them the basics of Python. They, too, took home a Raspberry Pi.

Not only did the “Young Coder: Let’s Learn Python” tutorials lay the foundation for many children to go on and learn to program, they sent at least one father down that same path.

9-year-old Havana Wilson of Denver, Colo., made the trip to PyCon with her father, Bruce. After she showed interest in building video games, dad looked around the web for how to get her involved. “It was my job to turn her desire into action, so I did research on the most intuitive programming language that has the ability to produce games but also could be a wonderful gateway into programming,” h…

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 st…
