PyCon US 2017 is running in Portland, Oregon from May 17 - 25, and it's bound to be another amazing conference.

For the second year in a row, the BeeWare team will be on site with a booth in the Exhibit Hall, along with other Open Source projects from the Python world.

With this booth, we get two tickets to the conference. This includes:

  • access to the opening reception
  • 3 days of conference talks, expo hall / job fair
  • breakfasts, breaks, lunches, and
  • swag bag

Thing is, both Russell and I have already registered.

So, we want to give you the ticket.

Yes, you.

If you can get yourself to Portland on the conference days, we want to give you our free ticket.

What do we want in return?

Just a little bit of your time.

The Bee Team will be helping to staff our booth, but we'd also like to see (and give!) talks, so helping us out by running the booth would be lovely. (Plus, and I'm sure Russell would agree, just helping out on the booth earns you a coin)

Plus, we'd love for you to stick around for the famous coding Sprints. These are held in the four days after the event, while people are still in town. We get coffee, lunch, and a room full of tables, chairs and copious amount of power points, and we code on projects. We'll be running a BeeWare sprint where we will be mentoring and helping first time contributors earn their shiny challenge coin

Does this sound like something you'd be interested in?

Please, email us!

Tell us about yourself! Who you are, what you do, why you want to go to PyCon and what makes you interested in Python.

We need to allocate our tickets early, so please email us by February 12, 2017

If you have any questions, just ask myself or Russell!

We'd love to see you there! ✨
