Programme sneak peek

[D] [Digg] [SU] [R] [SU] [SU]

With tickets sales having opened just 10 days ago, we are thrilled that already a quarter are sold. Of course, most of these were part of the early bird rush, which flew past in less than 48 hours. Amazing!

We are now well underway in assembling the programme, which will be jam-packed with more than 70 informative and entertaining talks and tutorials. It will take us another week or so to get the final speaker confirmations and assemble the most painful challenge to quantum mechanics (that thing where there are three talks you want to see at the same time)...but in the mean time... here is a sneak peek of what you can expect. (Some of these may appear in miniconf and specialist events on Friday.)

Phew!!! We are so excited to bring you the full schedule in the very near future!

The prices page lists all the inclusions with each type of ticket. Employer-paid Professional tickets are $560. Additionally, we invite you or your employer to consider upgrading to a Contributor✨ ticket. At $900, it includes all the perks of a Professional ticket along with exposure as a sponsor, and the warm fuzzies of knowing that you are supporting Australia's finest Python conference (and more importantly, its attendees).

For the weekend keyboard warriors who are paying their own way, Enthusiast tickets start from $250. And if that figure feel like a stretch too, we encourage you to apply for financial assistance. Applications close during June. We don't want anyone attending PyConAU to be so stressed about money that they can't enjoy it.

It's just 10 weeks to PyCon Australia, so hop to it! Buy your ticket now.
