PyCon 2015 has launched!

The PyCon organizers are thrilled to announce the launch of PyCon 2015! Following up a wildly successful 2014 event - the first major PyCon held outside of the US - Montréal again plays host to the Python community's annual gathering April 8-16. As with the previous three years, 2015 is sure to be a sell out show, with this fall's ticket sales expected to move quickly.

Introducing Poster Sessions to PyCon JP 2014

We are now two months away from PyCon JP 2014! Thank you to everyone who have responded to our Call for Proposals. Applications are now being reviewed by the organizing committee and the result will be sent out shortly. We thank you for your patience.

We also have a news to share: This year we are introducing poster sessions, in addition to talk sessions. Applications are now open through our website.

We strongly feel that communication between participants is the key for the success of Python community and that is why we decided to introduce poster sessions. Smaller audience leads to much deeper feedback and discussions. You may also want to show a hands-on demo rather than giving a presentation. If you've felt that giving a presentation is not the best way to convey your work then this may be the right thing for you.

Some things to note before you apply:
You can apply for poster sessions even if you have applied for talk sessions.Poster sessions will have dedicated…
