Python Events Calendars - Please submit your 2017 events
maintained by the Python Software Foundation (PSF) and a group of volunteers
As some of you may know, the PSF has a team of volunteers who are maintaining a set of central Python event calendars. We currently have two calendars in place:
* Python Events Calendar - meant for conferences and larger gatherings focusing on Python or a related technology (in whole or in part)
* Python User Group Calendar - meant for user group events and other smaller local events
The calendars are displayed on https://www.python.org/events/ and http://pycon.org/. There's also a map mashup to show events near you or get an overview of what currently going in the Python community:
You can subscribe to the calendars using iCal and RSS feeds and also embed the calendar widgets on your sites. We have also added a Twitter feed @PythonEvents to get immediate updates whenever a new event is added. Please see our wiki page for details:
The calendars are open to the world-wide Python community, so you can have local user group events, as well as regional and international conference events added to the calendars.
Looking back, the calendars have proven to be a great tool for the Python community to connect, with more than 250 conferences and more than a hundred of user group events listed since 2012.
We would therefore like to encourage everyone to submit their 2017 events, so that the Python community can get a better overview over what's happening in Python land.
Please see the instructions at
for details on how to submit an event. We've made it really easy for you: just need to send an email to our team address using the email template we provide for this. Thanks.
More information on the calendars, the URLs, feed links, IDs, embedding, etc. is available on the wiki:
