Venues - welcome to summer in San Francisco!

Bring a light jacket for the evenings and you will find that the temperature is always perfect to talk about Python with your new and old pals!

We will be hosting the pre-conference workshops at several locations and the main conference at UCSF Mission Bay Conference Center. Please see map below and plan ahead. They are all within walking distance or an Uber/Lyft ride from our conference hotel in downtown San Francisco.

Do you have large meeting space that can host PyBay's workshops? We are looking for companies in SF that can accommodate us:

  • Thursday 8/15 and/or Friday 8/16
  • Meeting space should fit 40+ people classroom style (some workshops may have 70 people)
  • Have AV support
  • Workshops will run from 9:15a - 12:45p, and again from 1:45p - 5:15p
  • A budget to provide water, coffee, snack and lunch a huge plus

If you'd like to enjoy some conference co-branding and show off your office to aspiring Python devs, please
