Reinforce your knowledge by offering a talk, lightning talk, or Open Space presentation. Connect with our sponsoring companies looking to hire. There’s no shortage of great tech jobs, but there aren’t enough skilled developers to fill them. Be one!

Code together, laugh together

At PyBay you can hang out with a Python luminary, code with a new buddy, share your experience by mentoring someone at the Hacker Lounge, present your passion project at a lightning talk or Open Spaces, refresh your mind and body with yoga, laugh out loud at improv, or play some tunes under the sun. The "hallway track" was well-loved last year--let's make it even better this year!
