Where is the PSF?

Where to Find the PSF Online

One of the main ways we reach people for news and information about the PSF and Python is Twitter. There’s been a lot of uncertainty around that platform recently, so we wanted to share a brief round up of other places you can find us:

As always, if you are looking for technical support rather than news about the foundation, we have collected links and resources here for people who are new or looking to get deeper into the Python programming language:

It's time for our annual year-end PSF fundraiser and membership drive 🎉

Support Python in 2022!

For the fourth year in a row, the PSF is partnering with JetBrains on our end-of-year fundraiser. Over that time, the partnership has raised a total of over $75,000. Wow! Thank you, JetBrains, for all your support.

There are three ways to join in the drive this year:

  • Save on PyCharm + get DataSpell free! JetBrains is once again supporting the PSF by providing a 30% discount on PyCharm and all proceeds will go to the PSF! But wait–there’s more! JetBrains has released DataSpell, a new IDE specifically for Data Scientists. When you buy your discounted PyCharm license, you will also get a bonus DataSpell license, free!
    You can take advantage of this discount by clicking the button on the page linked here, and the discount will be automatically applied when you check out. The promotion will only be available through November 22nd, so go grab the deal today!
  • Donate directly to the PSF! Every dollar makes a difference. (Does every dollar also make a kitten somewhere purr? We make no promises, but maybe you should try, just in case?😻)
  • Become a member! Sign up as a Supporting member of the PSF. Be a part of the PSF, and help us sustain what we do with your annual support.

Or, heck, why not do all three? 🥳

Thank You for Making PyCon US amazing, Jackie!

Jackie Augustine is moving on from her role of Director of Events at the PSF. Please join me in thanking Jackie for all of her amazing work with our volunteers, vendors, and staff. Her energy, heart, and dedication will be keenly missed.

Jackie says, “PyCon US will forever be in my heart. Mostly because of all the wonderful people I have met and come to love. The community members, the board directors, the many volunteers, and especially the staff of the PSF have enhanced my life tremendously. I will truly miss everyone.”

Jackie has been working with the PSF on PyCon US for 10 years and most recently managed our pivot to two years of remote PyCons. She also oversaw our return to a safe and fulfilling in-person PyCon earlier this year. PyCon US would not be the successful and growing event it is today without her work.

The PSF’s Director of Infrastructure Ee Durbin shared, “For most PyCon US is a few precious days in the spring each year. For some it is months of preparing a presentation, organizing a summit, or volunteering their time. For Jackie it has been a continuous and heartfelt commitment year over year to facilitate every detailed aspect of the conference, both in-person and online, that we cherish. The impact Jackie has had on our community via PyCon US is hard to overstate and our gratitude should be as deep and heartfelt as the commitment she made in her time directing the event.”

So, what’s next for us? Our extremely capable Event Assistant, Olivia Sauls will be stepping up into the role of Program Director and we will be hiring a Community Events Manager to help us run PyCon US. It would be lovely if you could help us by sharing the job listing widely.
