PyCon 2013 Schedule Released

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwire - January 08, 2013) -  PyCon 2013 2013 has released the schedule of talks and tutorials for the March conference in Santa Clara, California. The conference begins with two days of tutorials on March 13 and 14, followed by three days of talks from Friday March 15 through 17, ending with four days of sprints through March 21.

The tutorial selections this year came from a record pool of 129 submissions, up from 2012's record of 88. "We faced a lot of hard decisions, choosing from some really outstanding proposals by excellent and experienced instructors," said tutorial co-chair Stuart Williams. A highlight of the schedule is expansion to include coverage for beginners not just to the Python language, but also to those new to programming as a whole. There's coverage from the web to the desktop and everything in between, with several tutorials being presented by full-time educators.

The talk schedule includes the addition of a sixth track, raising the count of presentations to 114, up from 95 in previous years. Talks were selected from yet another record breaking submission process which received 458 proposals, an increase of over 80. The schedule includes numerous mainstay speakers and a host of first timers, providing coverage of a wide range of topics.

While the keynote speakers have not been scheduled, four have been selected to give the morning addresses. Eben Upton of the Raspberry Pi Foundation and Jessica McKellar of the Python Software Foundation will be speaking. Joining them are prolific Python contributor and educator Raymond Hettinger, and Python's creator, Guido van Rossum.

The conference is made possible by diamond level sponsors Google and Heroku, as well as platinum sponsors RedHat, Milo, New Relic, Caktus Consulting, Eventbrite, Cars.com, SurveyMonkey, Microsoft, and Facebook, and over 100 other organizations. Organizations interested in sponsoring PyCon should contact conference chairman Jesse Noller at [email protected].
