PyCon Dinner Registration

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 an 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!

Note: Advance registration is required (see registration information below).

PyCon Dinner Speakers


Brandon Rhodes

The first dinner, at the Place d'Armes Hotel, will feature Python trivia emceed by the fantastic Brandon Rhodes. He's well-loved in the Python community for his depth of Python knowledge and sense of humor, and we're very excited to answer his trivia questions.

Greg Brockman
For the second dinner, at the Vieux Port Steakhouse, we'll have Greg Brockman give a short talk and provide a few problems for people to discuss during dinner. We're expecting this to be a lot of fun, since Greg put together the incredible Stripe capture-the-flag competitions.

How & why cities and dates are selected for Pycon

Foreword from the Chair: The PyCon staff, volunteers, tutorial presenters, speakers, poster presenters, and community members have been hard at work preparing for PyCon 2018 in Cleveland, Ohio. Along the way, we’ve gotten a chance to have some solid discussions about what makes PyCon good as well as where it can improve.

In February one of those discussions was around the dates when PyCon 2018 will be occurring, specifically the conflict with Mother’s Day 2018. The outcome of that discussion was a commitment by the PyCon staff to better communicate what decisions and compromises were made along the way and how they were considered.

PyCon is run by the Python Software Foundation, which is a grant giving non-profit. Many misunderstand or are unaware of this relationship, but the Python Software Foundation relies on maintaining a strict budget for the operation of PyCon in order to continue its grants programs and other financial responsibilities.

The PyCon staff and Python Software Foundat…

It’s taking yourself from beginner to intermediate, or intermediate to advanced. For some, it’s getting st…

Updated refund policy for Attendees and Financial Aid recipients traveling to PyCon internationally

International travel to the United States has become a greater risk for many in our community. In light of current conditions, PyCon is providing additional support for international travelers. If you are travelling internationally to PyCon, take note of the following information. Financial Aid applicants should take note of additional information specific to that process in the second section. For All International Travellers to PyCon In order to better assist our international community, we have extended the following clauses from the 2017 refund policy for Financial Aid recipients to our refund policy for all attendees of PyCon:  If despite holding a visa you are denied entry upon arrival to the United States, then after you pursue and receive whatever refund your airline might be able to offer, PyCon wants to send you enough money to cover the rest of the cost of your airfare. You will need to document that you indeed arrived in the United States and were denied entry. If despite…
