PyCon UK is the annual gathering of the UK Python community and its friends from around the world. This year, the conference is held at Cardiff City Hall, from Thursday 15th to Monday 19th September.
Overview of the programme
- Thursday: Open Day, with introductory workshops, talks and more
- Friday to Sunday: a packed programme of talks and other sessions
- Monday: sprints and more advanced workshops
We'll be putting on a programme of talks, workshops, and other events aimed at the whole Python community, from web developers to hardware engineers, from professionals to hobbyists. There will be an education programme for teachers, and an expanded research programme aimed at researchers from the humanities, arts and scientists. The children's day returns too.
We're a community-led, volunteer-run conference, and this means we want you to be involved. If you'd like to give a talk or run a workshop, please see our Call For Proposals. We're particularly keen to hear from under-represented groups and first-time speakers.
Diversity, accessibility, inclusion
We want this to be the best PyCon UK ever, and a key part of that is our commitment to diversity, accessibility and inclusion.
Through the generosity of our sponsors, we're able to make the conference more affordable than in recent years, with individual tickets only £96. For the first time, we're also offering a Financial Aid Programme.
PyCon UK cannot happen without sponsors. If you or your company are interested in supporting the conference — perhaps you're recruiting, or sell to developers, or want to give something back to the community — take a look at our sponsorship options.
Code of Conduct
We're committed to ensuring the conference is welcoming, enjoyable, and safe for everyone, and so we expect all attendees to agree to our Code of Conduct.
If you've got any questions, get in touch.
We look forward to seeing you in September!
