PyBay2024...returning to the Mission Bay Conference Center during the best month to visit San Francisco!

We are counting on YOU to submit great talks by July 31

If you haven't heard from Michael Kennedy how fun PyBay is yet, here is the GAME PLAN:

  • Same as last year, the conference will be a one-day, single-track shindig
  • It is a day of learning and sharing the latest technologies / best practices with Python core devs, CTOs and architects from start-ups and mid-senior devs from larger corporations
  • Past speakers include illustrious names such as Raymond Hettinger (core Python dev),  Yury Selivanov (core Python on async/await and co-founder EdgeDB), Carol Willing (core Python on JupyterLab), Rachel Thomas (co-founder, Travis Oliphant (co-founder NumFOCUS), Brian Okken(Author)...We will announce this years KeyNote shortly!!!
  • 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!

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

Let's create a cool new normal for Pythonistas in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are counting on YOU to submit great talks by July 31

  • Submit 10-, 25- or 40-minute talk before June 30 for the best chance to secure a speaking slot
  • The wider the audience your talk appeals to, the better
  • Make clear and direct connection to Python in your abstract–if reference to Python is not obvious, your submission will not be considered
  • 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 learn something tangible
  • Know your audience. 50% of attendees in the past identified themselves as mid-level devs, 39% as senior-level, and 25% are women
  • If you don't live in the SF Bay Area, please let us know if your company will sponsor your travel expenses. PyBay is part of a nonprofit organization and nonprofit conference which is heavily dependent on sponsorship.
