postheadericon Welcome to PyCon Australia 2013!

July 5–7 2013, Hobart, Tasmania

PyCon Australia 2013 has now concluded! See you in Brisbane for PyCon Australia in August 2014!

Videos from PyCon Australia 2013 are now available on our Youtube Channel.

PyCon Australia is the national conference for users of the Python Programming Language. In July 2013, we're returning to Hobart, bringing together students, enthusiasts, and professionals with a love of Python from around Australia, and from all over the World.

Once again, we'll have a weekend packed full of amazing content on all aspects of the Python ecosystem, presented by experts and core developers of the tools and frameworks you use every day.

We're excited about the return of Friday Night CodeWars, and of course, we've got the usual conference dinner, as well as two days of developer sprints following the conference proceedings.

We can't wait to share more about the conference in the coming months. Until then, subscribe to our announcement list, follow us on twitter, or add yourself to our Lanyrd page.

Conference programme revealed!

We're very pleased to be able to reveal the programme for PyCon Australia 2013..

Our keynote presenters, Alex Gaynor, software engineer at Rdio and core contributor to many Python open source projects, and Tennessee Leeuwenburg, software engineer at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology will be joined by a wide array of presenters covering a broad range of backgrounds, including industry, research, government and academia.

We're proud to have put together one of the strongest programmes at any regional Python conference anywhere in the world.

Conference Registration Now Open!

We want you to come to PyCon Australia 2013! Conference registrations are now open, and until early June, accommodation at our venue, Wrest Point will be available at a low rate.

Now with three days of talks!

In 2013, before the main event kicks off, we're welcoming two new mini-conferences on the Friday 5 July.

DjangoCon AU is Australia's first national gathering for developers using the Django Web Framework. Presented by the Django Software Foundation, this mini-conference will feature a day of Django-specific talks and tutorials to support the growing community of Australian Django Developers.

The Python on OpenStack day is a day of in-depth talks and tutorials covering the OpenStack cloud platform – one of the most important growing Open Source Python projects – for Python developers.

Dates & Venue

Early Bird registration will open towards the end of March, and will run through April. Registration will remain open until close to the conference opening.

The conference will be held in July, where we're moving into a bigger, better venue at the Wrest Point Convention Centre in Hobart. The Miniconfs will be held on Friday 5 July, the conference proceedings are on Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 July, and the post-conference sprints will be on Monday 8 & Tuesday 9 July.
