Call for On-Site Volunteers

PyCon is organized and run by volunteers from the Python community. This year we're looking for over 200 on-site volunteer hours to make sure everything runs smoothly. Everyone who is attending PyCon is welcome to volunteer, and all help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

New This Year - PyCon Dinners!

Join us Friday April 11th at 6pm after the first day of talks for great food, great company, and great speakers!

If you're new to PyCon, this is a great opportunity to make new friends early on in the conference. Both dinners have an audience participation aspect designed to get people talking; especially those new to PyCon (which was 60% of attendees last year based on the post-conference survey).

And if PyCon is an annual event for you, then you already know that the conference continues with great conversations long after the talks end for the day, so pull up a chair!

New This Year: Childcare!

PyCon is proud to announce that we will be offering childcare during the main conference days for the very first time ever! Space is limited, so be sure to sign-up for childcare soon.

The actual cost per child, per day is about $200, but the Python Software Foundation has kindly agreed to subsidize this new outreach initiative, bringing the cost down to $50 per child, per day. A huge thanks to Nilovna Bascunan-Vasquez and Ewa Jodlowska for organizing childcare for PyCon 2014!
