Frequently Asked Questions


Where is the conference?

We are looking for sponsors to determine our opening party and workshops location.

Meanwhile, the main conference days will be held at UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center, a Green Meeting Industry Council member that takes sustainability into account in everything they do. If you need a break from the talks and hacking, you can access their onsite gym for $20. Aside from the regular exercise equipment, you can enjoy their rock climbing wall, swimming pool, and racquetball courts.



How much are the passes? When do they go on sale?

  • 50 Early bird passes (25% off) are $300 for an individual pass and $525 for a corporate pass. They go on sale on April 10, 2018
  • Regular bird passes are $350 for an individual pass and $600 for a corporate pass.
  • Late bird passes are $400 for individual and $700 for corporate. They go on sale July 16, 2018.
  • If the main conference is not sold out by August 1, we will release Saturday and Sunday only passes at prices TBD.



Do Workshops Cost Extra?

Yes. Half-day workshops are $150 and full-day workshops are $250-$300.

Workshop pass will be released in June 2018.



What does the conference pass include?

Your Individual or Corporate pass includes continental breakfast, buffet lunch, a ton of coffee, access to the reception during the job fair/tools expo, a conference T-shirt, and goodies from conference sponsors. The more support we receive from sponsors and corporate pass sales, the more we can offer back to you.

Last year, Linkedin came in as a Gold Sponsor and made the opening party possible. Yay!

This year, we hope raise enough funds to make video recording for all talks and that some of our Diamond sponsors will opt to offer 20-minutes massages to Pythonistas at their booth.
