Details will be forwarded once we confirm your attendance, but it will happen right after the summit. # Python Language Summit 2019 The Python Language Summit is an event for the developers of Python implementations (CPython, PyPy, Jython, and so on) to share information, discuss our shared problems, and — hopefully — solve them. These issues might be related to the language itself, the standard library, the development process, status of Python 3.8 (or plans for 3.9), the documentation, packaging, the website, et cetera. The Summit focuses on discussion more than on presentations. If you’d like to attend **and actively participate** in the discussions during the Language Summit, please fill in [this form](https://goo.gl/forms/pexfOGDjpV0BWMer2) by **March 21st 2019**. We will be evaluating all applications and confirm your attendance by **April 15th**. Note: **your attendance is not confirmed** until you heard back from us. You don't need to be registered for PyCon in order to attend the summit. One of the goals of the Language Summit is to speed up the discussions and decision making process. Communication over Discourse (or mailing lists!) is generally more time consuming. As part of efforts to make this event more open and less mysterious, we are not requiring invitations by core developers anymore. However, please understand that we will have to be selective as space and time are limited. In particular, we are prioritizing active core contributors, as well as those who we believe will be able to improve the quality of the discussions at the event and bring a more diverse perspective to core Python developers. As for other changes this year, **A. Jesse Jiryu Davis** will be covering the event and will post a detailed write up on the official blog of The PSF shortly after the conference. We hope to see you at the Summit! -- [Mariatta](https://twitter.com/mariatta) and [Łukasz](https://twitter.com/llanga) PS.
