All good things must come to an end and it’s time for the PyCon 2020 Online closing. All of PyCon’s sponsors financially supported our community during this difficult time. 2020 would have been an insurmountable hurdle without their support. Thank you to each and every sponsor.
Our sponsors collaborated with us to welcome you and to provide virtual experiences since they couldn’t be with you in person. They recorded workshops and product demos, created Python challenges and code competitions, and provided information on their job openings. We hope you enjoyed the content.
Thank you for participating in our first online conference. We look forward to seeing all of you in Pittsburgh in 2021!

Python 2 has officially reached End of Life, which means any security problems that emerge over time will not be supported by the community, no matter how catastrophic.
If you still have software that depends on Python 2, we can help. We're providing ongoing Python 2 support and security updates, so you can continue to run your Python 2 software while freeing up your technical staff.
As part of our Python 2 support, we've released ActivePython 2.7.18, our pre-built distribution that includes the last official release of Python 2 as well as many popular packages.
Learn more about our Python 2 support and get a free risk assessment.
ActiveState delivers its ActivePython distributions via the ActiveState Platform, which provides free, cross-platform build resources for building custom Python runtime environments with all the packages you need for your project. Sign up for a free account.
Developers can also gain access to the ActiveState Platform’s GraphQL API, which allows you to add new packages, projects and other open source language artifacts. It’s currently open to Python-based open source projects. Want to participate? Learn more about our early access program.
