And if you’re in the SF Bay Area, you’ll avoid travel costs by having the experts come to you!

Advance your career

Boost your skills with practical talks during the main conference. Dive deeper with highly respected trainers at pre-conference workshops. 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

PyBay embraces and is inclusive to everyone who is passionate about the technology and doing good. Come out to see who you'd meet. Chat with a Python luminary, mentor or code with a new buddy at the Hacker Lounge, present your passion project at a lightning talk or Open Spaces, take a yoga class or play some tunes under the sun. Feel free to ditch the talks and hang out at the happening "hallway track"!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the conference?

For the main conference days, UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center. We are returning coz' it is convenient for both drivers and public transportation lovers. It has yummy, healthy food! It gently nudges us to take a time out for our mind and body: lay out on the grass, play frisbees, enjoy the sun, or work it out for $20 at their onsite gym with rock climbing and racquet ball. Their staff is serious about sustainability and accessibility too.

For the pre-conference workshops, we are looking to partner with companies that has day-time event space in SF fitting 40-80 people classroom style 8/15-16. Please email Grace, our Conference Chair.
