Hatchery programs at PyCon 2019!

The PyCon Hatchery program was introduced last year to allow for the addition to PyCon of new tracks, summits, demos, or any other imaginable events which share and fulfill the mission of the Python Software Foundation.

The Hatchery program was first run as a trial in 2018, welcoming the PyCon Charlas as it’s inaugural program. This year we are happy to have built upon that trial and are delighted to have received so many proposals and to have accepted many more events!

PyCon Charlas will be returning in 2019, PyCon Charlas ("charla" is the Spanish word for conference "talk") will be a full day track of Python talks en EspaƱol and is open to the entire Python community. This track will showcase Spanish speaking Pythonistas from a variety of countries. Their schedule will launch later this week so stay tuned! us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/charlas.

New this year for PyCon 2019!

The Art of Python is a miniature arts festival focusing on narrative, performance, and visual art. We intend to encourage and showcase novel art that helps us share our emotionally charged experiences of programming (particularly in Python). We hope that by attending, our audience will discover new aspects of empathy and rapport, and find a different kind of delight and perspective than might otherwise be expected at a large conference. For more details and information to submit a proposal visit us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/artofpython.



Maintainers Summit is seeking to build a community of practice for project maintainers and key contributors. We seek to help the Python community sustain and grow healthy projects and communities. Activities will include talks and mini unconference around technology, community, resourcing, and more as it relates to package maintenance. For more details and information to submit a proposal visit us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/maintainers.

Mentored Sprints for Diverse Beginners is a newcomer’s introduction to contributing to open source. Walking the path from user to collaborator, and thus contributing to an open source project, can sometimes be intimidating especially for newcomers. We also recognize that some groups are traditionally underrepresented in the open source community and we would like to support them in their open source path. For these reasons, we are running the first ever PyCon mentored sprints for individuals from underrepresented groups willing to start contributing to Python projects. This event will provide a supportive, friendly, and safe environment for all the attendees and partner open source projects. For more details and information to submit a proposal visit us.pycon.org/2019/hatchery/mentoredsprints.

We look forward to seeing you in Cleveland and hope that you’ll take some time to explore these exciting additions to the schedule!

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 2019 Code of Conduct Transparency Report

PyCon 2019 Transparency ReportThe PyCon Code of Conduct sets standards for how our community interacts with others during the conference. A Code of Conduct without appropriate reporting and response procedures is difficult to enforce transparently, and furthermore a lack of transparency in the outcomes of Code of Conduct incidents leaves the community without knowledge of how or if the organizers worked to resolve incidents. In our efforts to continue to improve how PyCon handles CoC incidents, staff, volunteers and community members participated in a CoC training prior to PyCon 2019. In having more people trained we provided a more thorough process for reporting and responses. With that in mind, we have prepared the following to help the community understand what kind of incidents we received reports about and how the PyCon staff responded. OverviewReportsThis year, PyCon Staff and Incident Responders were notified of 11 incidents. For summary purposes we categorized each report using a…

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…
