  • Note from our new Executive Director Deb Nicholson
  • Account by Łukasz Langa on what he’s accomplished and learned in his first year as the inaugural PSF Developer in Residence
  • PyCon US 2021 by the numbers
  • Where we sent grant funding in 2021
  • Summary of our 2021 financials
  • Great photos plus testimonials from some of the small number of live events the PSF supported in 2021, generously shared by these groups who are doing great work for the Python community around the world:
  • Sponsors who generously supported our work and the Python ecosystem in 2021
