That's right folks - the PyCon US team starting planning and executing for PyCon 2013 before PyCon 2012 even ended. We're revving up our engines as we speak to fully launch PyCon 2013, March 13th-21st in Santa Clara CA once again.
Last year we had over 2300 attendees from all over the world - PyCon 2012 was the largest gathering of Python hackers in history. This year, we've set a hard cap of 2500 total attendees (this includes sponsor registrations). We fully expect to sell out the conference once again - and we've got huge things in store for 2013.
PyCon 2013 will be the last year we hold it in Santa Clara for this cycle - PyCons 2014 and 2015 will be held in Montreal Canada, and this is my final year as PyCon chair - so let's make this one as epic a blowout as last year's was.
With our launch, we are now signing up launch day sponsors - these sponsors get additional billing, visibility and, well community appreciation for being launch day partners, and will be part of a large PR push we are planning.
If you and your company are interested - send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for the 2013 prospectus, which we have revised based on feedback from past years.
I'm excited to once again be chairing the conference, and having the honor of working with our sponsors, attendees and the privilege of working for the Python Community.
Jesse Noller, PyCon 2013 Chair
