Hi fellow Pythonistas!
As some may have seen, the PSF announced that PyCon US 2021 https://pycon.blogspot.com/2020/12/announcing-pycon-us-2021.html will be a virtual experience.
PyCon US generates over 65% of the PSF’s revenue. With PyCon 2020 and 2021 happening virtually, the PSF may lose over one million USD of expected revenue for those two years.
