Python Events Calendars - Please submit your 2015 events


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)
The calendars are displayed on http://pycon.org/ and also on the new https://python.org/ website at https://www.python.org/events/python-events/ and https://www.python.org/events/python-user-group/.

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 on 2014, the calendars have proven to be a great tool for the Python community to connect, with more than 60 conferences and more than a hundred of user group events listed.

We would therefore like to encourage everyone to submit their 2015 events, so that the Python community can get a better overview over what's happening in Python land.

Adding Events

Please see the instructions at https://wiki.python.org/moin/PythonEventsCalendar#Available_Calendars 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.

PS: Please help spread the word about the calendars - we'll all benefit from knowing more about Python events happening around the world. Feel free to forward this posting to your local user groups and conference teams. Thanks.
