What we're about

Enhancing the Python community and ecosystems, one developer focused event at a time. Submit talks here 👉 https://bit.ly/sfpythoncfp Sponsor here 👉 https://forms.gle/uAykZXjXWs8Dzfx3A Submit tutorials here 👉 https://bit.ly/sfpythontutorials

Started in Nov 2008, SF Python is the largest, longest running community-run meetup in SF Bay Area. Each year, our dedicated team of volunteers produce 20+ developer focused, live events for Pythonistas to connect, learn, share, and grow together.

Why do we put these events up?

We believe there is power in in-person interactions. We believe in learning, sharing, and helping each other out. And we have seen the results. We have heard stories of people getting their problems solved because of the talks and the people they met at our events. We have witnessed people grow in their career, from receiving their first internship to landing their first speaking gig at conferences. We have even heard companies migrating to a different platform/technologies after attending our conference.

We look forward to your joining this awesome community - be it attending our events, giving a talk (https://bit.ly/sfpythoncfp), donating your venue space, or supporting us financially via sponsorship!

Hope to see you at some or more of the following events!

2 monthly meetups (http://sfpythonmeetup.com/)

- Presentation Night on the 2nd Wednesday of each month features intermediate to advanced level tech talks from Python Software Foundation members, core developers of open-source projects, and local software engineers.

- Project Night on the 3rd Wednesday of most months offers a chill evening to hack on projects, get questions answered, mentor other devs, or attend a tutorial. It's usually held at various companies in SF so you get to sample how different companies are using Python.

Online Python conference that's educational, inspiring, and SOCIAL!

This August 15-16, use the excuse of PyBay, the 5th annual conference, to learn the latest with Python, reconnect with Pythonistas you haven't seen or talk to for a while and meet new devs, virtually! If talks from Raymond Hettinger or others interest you, go watch them live and continue picking on the speakers' brains in smaller video chat rooms afterwards. See pybay.com for talk list. Or, ditch the talks all together for hallway chat because you haven't seen a friend for a while and want to catch up. Help each other feel connected with the call for physical distance around the globe. You can also spin up new conversations in Hallway Chat and Open Space room, lead a discussion that you are passionate about, teach tai chi or meditation. Or head to the Expo Hall to get some swag from sponsors, check out their live demo, do informational interviews... 😲 What? Are you describing a virtual conference or an in-person conference? :-) 😲 Exactly! Your conference chair has been on a mission to find a platform for Pythonistas to get together meaningfully and our solution is 10000 times better than zoom + Discord/Slack. Want to see what we're up to, learn something new, share your knowledge and help each other lessen isolation blues on the 3rd weekend of August? When you register on https://pybay.com/register, you'll get a referral code for your friends to save $5, and for every person who redeems your code, you'll make $5. If you refer enough people, you could end up paying nothing this year.* And if you’re Black, Latino or female, your ticket is on us! Missed the call for talk proposal but want to have more presence at the conference? You can air promo videos, offer swag, have a virtual booth with lead retrieval capability, even a sponsored talk slot or workshop... see pybay.com for more details. Sounds cool? We hope you'll use PyBay as an opportunity to connect with people and decrease the social distance we're experiencing globally! Register on https://pybay.com/register now and see you on August 15-16 (Sat and Sun) Stay safe and healthy! Grace, SF Python founder and PyBay Conference Chair Current list of sponsors: Anyscale - You may recall their amazing talk on Ray: Scalability from a Laptop to a Cluster at our meetup earlier this year!
