PyCon US 2022 Recordings Update

We understand that the PyCon US recordings are an incredibly important resource to the community. We were looking forward to providing the PyCon US 2022 recordings very soon after the event – especially since we know many of you weren’t able to attend this year’s conference in person. Regrettably, we have encountered some technical obstacles this year. We are working with our AV partners at the venue to resolve things as soon as possible.

Because of the ongoing pandemic, we were unable to work with our usual vendor for PyCon US conferences. They are based in Canada and understandably didn’t want to commit to travel to the US this year. This resulted in PyCon US contracting with a new AV vendor for the first time in many years. We were very thorough in providing details, but ultimately this was a new team doing work to new specifications.

The onsite AV team has provided an update on the technical issues as follows: “Some of the sessions are missing audio or graphics and are being worked through. There is a backup drive of all the content that has been mailed to the editing team to hopefully resolve those that are missing graphics and/or audio.” We remain hopeful that everyone’s sessions will eventually be posted with all audio and graphics intact, but it is going to take more time than we would like.

We hope the community understands the challenges in planning this year’s event and we greatly appreciate your support and patience as we work through this issue. Planning a safe, comfortable in-person event after two years of virtual added many additional pieces that took the PSF’s small staff time and effort to implement. We will continue to provide updates on the status of the recordings and will release an announcement once they are uploaded to the PyCon US YouTube Channel and available for viewing.
