Just to remind everyone that signup to the language summit is still open for another 11 days.

So far folks have proposed topic like: f-strings, CPython’s documentation, PEG parser, property-based testing, and more!

We’ve received a number inquiries about the language summit, so here are some Q&A:

1. Do I need to sign up if I’m a Python core developer?

Yes please! Attendance is limited to 50 people. Please register to reserve your seat in the room.

2. Can I sign up if I’m not a Python core developer?

Yes you can. Last year we had 15 participants (out of 50) who were not Python core devs. Among them were maintainers and representatives from BeeWare, CircuitPython, PSF board member, PyCharm, etc.

Sign up to discuss a topic: https://forms.gle/g4BXezH1Vcn7tLds5 (closes Feb 29th, 2020 AoE)

Who can attend

We welcome Python core developers, active core contributors to Python and alternative Python implementations, and anyone else who has a topic to discuss with core developers.

Who can propose a discussion topic

If you have discussion items; seeking consensus; awaiting decision on a PEP; needing help with your core dev work; or have specific questions that need answers from core developers, please submit a proposal. According to last year’s feedback, our audience prefer more discussions and shorter talks.

To get an idea of past language summits, you can read past years' coverage:

This year's event will be covered by A. Jesse Jiryu Davis again, and will be posted on PSF's blog.

Some changes to note this year:
1) We plan to start 1 hour earlier (9AM)
2) The room will have U-shaped table layout
