What is PyCon?

PyCon US is the largest annual gathering for the community using and developing the open-source Python programming language. It is produced and underwritten by the Python Software Foundation, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing and promoting Python. Through PyCon US, the PSF advances its mission of growing the international community of Python programmers.

PyCon US is backed by the PSF and the revenue generated by PyCon US is essential to the continued community support and operations. Because PyCon US is backed by the non-profit PSF, we keep registration costs much lower than comparable technology conferences so that PyCon US remains accessible to the widest group possible. The PSF also pays for the ongoing development of the software that runs PyCon US and makes it available under a liberal open source license.

We are so excited to welcome everyone back in-person to PyCon US for the first time in three years. The safety of our community is our top priority and we will continue to keep you updated as the situation changes. In order to allow our community to reconnect in a safe way, we will instate Health and Safety Guidelines to be followed by all attendees during the course of the event.

PyCon US is a diverse conference dedicated to providing an enjoyable experience to everyone. Help us ensure this by following our code of conduct.
