PyCon 2019 Registration is Open!

It is that time of year! Registration for PyCon 2019 has launched and once again we are selling the first 800 tickets at a discounted rate.

How to register

Once you have created an account on, you can register via the registration tab on the conference website.

Registration costs

The early bird pricing is $550 for corporate, $350 for individuals, and $100 for students. Once we sell the first 800 tickets, regular prices will go into effect. Regular pricing will be $700 for corporate, $400 for individuals, and $125 for students.

PyCon will take place May 1-9, 2019 in Cleveland, Ohio. The core of the conference May 3-5, 2019 packs in three days worth of our community’s 95 best talks, amazing keynote speakers, and our famed lightning talks to close out each day, but it is 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. Following the conference days there are 4 days of sprints you are invited to attend. Free and open to the public, PyCon Sprints offer an opportunity for anyone to collaborate and contribute to a project even if it is their first time.


Tutorials will be presented Wednesday May 1, 2019 and Thursday May 2, 2019. We are accepting proposals for tutorials through November 26, 2018. Find more information and submit a proposal here. Once our program committee has scheduled the selected tutorials, you will be able to add them to your conference registration. Watch for tutorial launch in February 2019. Follow us on Twitter for the announcement.

Education Summit

The Education Summit is held on Thursday May 2, 2019. The Education Summit requires you to be registered due to capacity limits. Please only register if you plan to attend as this is a popular event. If you register and are unable to attend please let us know by emailing We want to be sure the room is full and those that are able to attend have the chance.

Introducing our 2019 Keystone Sponsor: Microsoft! Our top sponsors — companies who step forward to make the biggest investment in PyCon and its community — not only use Python for their own development but also offer Python as a crucial tool for their own customers. That is certainly true of PyCon’s Keystone Sponsor this year.

I recently caught up with the Python Team at Microsoft to talk about how they're using Python and was excited to hear what they had to say.

Q: Is your organization using Python in any surprising ways?
Yes, and in many surprising ways! To mention just three examples:

We have large swaths of data scientists whose jobs rely around Jupyter Notebooks. This includes our security analysis team, which is constantly working to identify new security threats and protecting literally billions of users of Windows, Office, and our cloud services for consumers and businesses—every day.Python is an important part of the CI/CD pipelines that are executed thousands of times ev…

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…
