PyCon X

Florence

2nd - 5th May 2019

PyCon goes X!

It seems like yesterday, wrapping up PyCon 9, an event that in only 4 hours years has grown from 180 people in 2014 to 700 in 2018.

We are really proud to announce the next edition of PyCon, our 10th edition: an event that brings developers, professionals, researches, students, teacher, project managers, data scientists and hobbyists from all over the world. Would you be the one to miss it?

Our first blog post for this new edition of PyCon Italy is to say THANKS.

Thanks to everyone that support us, that with enthusiasm help us to make this conference unique and to every one that give us the opportunity of getting better years after year. Thanks!


Some stats and dates:

PyCon Italy X will be held from the 2nd to the 5th of May 2019 in our usual location, the Centro Congressi dell'Hotel Mediterraneo in Florence. We are expecting around 800 attendees, following our 700 attendees from last year.

The first day will again have the Beginners' Day, this will be a day dedicated to people that want to learn Python or to who wants to improve their skills or learn new things.

It will be free and soon we will provide more information, stay tuned if you want to be mentor, we'll definitely need some help

In addition to the Beginners' Day we will also host a sprint session. Send us an email to info@pycon.it if you want to propose a topic for a sprint or if you want to lead one.


CFP is open!

We opened the Call for Proposal a couple of weeks ago, we are already receiving some amazing proposal!

If you work for a company that is interested in PyCon and that might be interested in bring a few developers or if you're looking to hire new developers, contact us at sponsor@pycon.it, we will send you all the details about our sponsorship opportunities.

Sponsors are fundamental for PyCon Italy and the other activities run by Python Italy. They help us organising initiatives for diversity, they help us providing financial aid, discounts to students and unemployed and all the other activity that we organise during PyCon. Sponsors make this conference possible, without them we won't be able to provide this conference! Sponsoring PyCon X is a great way to support the whole community

Being the 10th edition we've been working on some interesting additions to the conferences, we hope you'll like them. We've also been working on all the feedback you gave us last year through the feedback form, and we hope to keep improving this conference for everyone.

We will give more info in the upcoming weeks, but here's one that might be interesting for all the attendees that are travelling with their partner or their family. This year we will be organising side activities for tourists in order to give your companions a way to discover Florence without spending too much

Soon we will give you more information about the social events, so stay tuned for that too!
