PyCon 2019 Reminders and Information!

The first 30 days of 2019 have come and gone so quickly, we want to take a minute to provide some conference reminders and information.


  • January 31 2019 Extended to February 15, 2019: Deadline to submit a proposal for Startup Row.  Please go here to submit your proposal
  • February 12, 2019: Deadline to submit applications for Financial Aid

PyCon 2019 Early Bird tickets have sold out but registration at regular price is still available. If you are planning to attend, register soon as tickets will sell out and you don't want to miss out on the largest Python Conference.

Our goal is to make PyCon accessible for all of our attendees.  We are once again proud to offer childcare for PyCon 2019. Bring your children along and for a fee of $50 per day*, they can enjoy their own conference experience. This is the fourth year that Big Time Kid Care (www.bigtimekidcare.com) is providing this service.  There will be activities for all ages as well as snacks and lunch daily.
    *if you sign up for all three conference days, you will get one day complimentary!

Tutorials will be launching in mid February.  Please watch for the launch on us.pycon.org or follow us on Twitter. The tutorials are very popular and will sell out quickly so don't wait to register once they launch.

For all those living in the cold areas, stay warm! 
We are looking forward to seeing everyone in Cleveland in May!

An update regarding PyCon 2019 sponsor DataCamp

The PyCon staff is saddened to hear that one of our sponsors, DataCamp, had an incident where one of their employees was sexually harassed. We were also distressed to find it was unclear if Datacamp had addressed this incident with the seriousness it requires. PyCon and the Python Software Foundation take this issue seriously and we want to emphasize---for Datacamp and everyone---that such behavior is not tolerated at PyCon or any Python Software Foundation affiliated event.

The Python community must hold itself to a higher standard. We would like to reemphasize our values of inclusiveness and a willingness to act on behalf of the vulnerable members of our community as written in the Python Software Foundation code of conduct, and our guidelines, as written up in the PyCon code of conduct.

The Python Software Foundation Board, Python Software Foundation Executive Director, and myself have taken time to discuss the situation taking into account the concerns of our community, public discu…

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…
PyCon is here and so are the PyCon Sprints (May 6 - 9). For those who have not heard of OR attended the Sprints, we want to invite you to attend!

The PyCon Sprints are a time set aside for you and the developers of your favorite tools to work TOGETHER to make those tools better: fix bugs, add features, and improve documentation.

It is also a place for you to invite others to work on your project.

There are a number of initiatives at PyCon every year to help ensure that the Sprints go off without a hitch.

Sat: Mentored Sprints (New this year, registration required, currently sold out)
Sun: Sprint Leader presentations/project descriptions
Sun: "Intro to Sprints" workshop
Mon-Thu: the Sprints!

What can you expect at each of these events?

Mentored Sprints (Saturday): These are new this year and are a chance for attendees from groups traditionally underrepresented in the open source community to have hands-on support in a welcoming environment during their open source journey. While …
