event date

10 Sep 2022


Parklabs Garden, 1379 4th Street San Francisco, California, United States


PyBay2022...returning to your favorite format... OUTDOORS at SF's funnest Food Truck Park... and we want to hear from you!

We are counting on YOU to submit great talks by June 3.

If you haven't heard from Michael Kennedy how fun PyBay is yet, here is da GAME PLAN for PyBay2022 - Food Truck Edition

  • Same as last year, the conference will be a one-day, single-track shindig
  • It will start with lunch so you can reconnect with friends and coworkers - there are 18 food trucks and several drinking holes to choose from.
  • Talks from in-person speakers will start at 12:30 pm PST. They will be broadcast to attendees lounging in multiple bungalows and cabanas via large TVs and loudspeakers. 
  • There will be a 20-minute break every hour during talks and a longer dinner break so you can give your brain and bladder a break, sample more great food and drinks, reinforce learning by digging deeper with your peers, and catch in person!
  • The fun goes on until we get kicked out at 9:00pm but memories will live on long after that.
  • Proof of vaccination is required, and we may ask for a negative test result depending on case rate closer to the event.
  • If Covid case rates or air quality threaten our health and fun, we'll postpone.

Dig it? We know it will be the funnest PyBay yet.

Let's create a better reality for Pythonistas in the San Francisco Bay Area --- TOGETHER. We are counting on YOU to submit great talks by Friday June 3.

This year's PyBay is about the usual high quality content but in a relaxed environment for Pythonistas to reconnect with people in 3D and soak up some vitamin D

We are looking for in-person delivery of 8 in-depth technical talks and 8 fun lighting talks


  • 5-min lightning talks
  • 25-min + 5 mins Q&A
  • 40-min + 10 mins Q&A


  • DevOps‚ Testing & Automation
  • ML‚ AI & Data
  • Python & Libraries
  • Scale & Performance
  • Web‚ IoT & Hardware
  • People & Project Management


  • Submit 25- or 40-minute talk before June 3 for the best chance to secure a speaking slot. The talk selection committee meets June 11 to pick talks. If we need more selections, we'll meet again. 
  • The wider the audience your talk appeals to, the better
  • Don’t get lost in the weeds, but don’t be afraid to delve into the details--show some code and tell some war stories so developers have something tangible to learn
  • Consider your audience. 50% of attendees in the past identified themselves as mid-level devs, 39% as senior-level, and 25% are women
  • PyBay Food Truck Edition is geared for a memorable in-person gathering, and this includes speakers. If you are traveling to San Francisco Bay Area, state how you are planning to get here (we cannot reimburse travel expenses) and why we shouldn't be concerned about last-minute changes that will leave us scrambling


  • Site has free WiFi powered by Cisco Meraki. A/V team is bringing equipment to simulcast talks outdoors and backup power supply. Speakers should bring HDMI adaptors 
  • If we have to postpone due to Covid case rate or air quality, you can wait until early Oct to deliver your talk or we'll schedule you at one of our monthly virtual meetups
  • We'll let you know by June 13 if your talk has been accepted
  • Talks will be recorded and posted to our YouTube channel with 15,000+ subscribers
