Aigenpulse are delighted to be sponsoring Pycon UK at Cardiff City Hall from 15th to 19th September.

PyCon is a conference for the Python community, organised by members of the Python community.  PyCon is for Python enthusiasts of all experience levels, from new users to core developers.

A full five days of talks, workshops and collaboration. The event will also feature a young coders’ day, themes dedicated to science and education, and numerous Python-related events.

The original PyCon was formed in North America in 2003, but there are now a number of other conferences being run in the PyCon spirit, around the world. Visit the worldwide PyCon web site for more information.

PyCon gives you opportunities to:

  • See a variety of presentations, panels, and impromptu discussions.
  • Learn about significant advances in the Python development community.
  • Meet fellow developers from around the world.
  • Enrol in tutorials delivered by experts.
  • Participate in development sprints with fellow enthusiasts.

Workshops 

Workshops and tutorials (including a Django Girls workshop) will run on all five days of the event.  Django Girls is a free one-day web programming workshop for total beginners.

In the workshop, you’ll learn the basics of web programming using Django, the free framework that’s behind hundreds of thousands of websites, including huge projects like Instagram and Pinterest.

Django Girls is a hugely successful world-wide project that has introduced thousands of women and girls to programming; it has run at PyCon UK since 2015.

Talks 

Talks will take place in multiple parallel sessions, on every imaginable Python-related topic, from Saturday to Tuesday.

Lunchtime sessions

We’ll have a jobs fair, where you can meet our sponsors to find out about the positions they’re offering, and poster sessions.

Code sprints

Code sprints for a large number of popular Python open-source projects will run on Wednesday.

Evening Events

Each evening at City Hall there’ll be Python-related social events: a board games and manual technology night, a code dojo and a Python music evening.

Dinners

There’ll be a conference dinner on Saturday, and several dinner options at The Clink, our favourite Cardiff restaurant.
