The conference takes place at the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies (Slovak University of Technology)
Venue is in new building and have well equipped and pleasant auditoriums and lobbies. The first PyCon SK was one of the first conferences in this auditorium!
Our speakers are the best. And they do it for free! However, sometimes we have to cover their travel budget as well as ticket price.
Expenses for flight tickets and hotel in Bratislava are a big part of our budget. We also cover all the costs of recording and releasing all of the talks.
PyCon is a special type of conference - it is organised by the community for the community
By attending, you have a chance to meet like minded people and hear a lot of interesting stories. However, for those who cannot afford to attend because of financial reasons we have opened a financial aid scheme and give free tickets.
Afraid of falling asleep during a talk? Don't worry, we have your back with our all-you-can-drink coffee, tea and water.
We will have two professional baristas serving fresh coffee and tea all day long. Water fountains will be available on multiple spots in the lobby.
During all three days, a variety of warm food will be served for lunch
Meat and vegetarian alternatives will be available.
We also try to be as eco friendly as possible, and so we serve food on ceramic plates, eat with metal cutlery and drink water from reusable plastic bottles.
The real price of one conference ticket would be much higher had it not been for our sponsors and partners, thanks to whom we can afford to sell cheaper tickets.
Without sponsors and partners all tickets would be less affordable and this price still does not include the enormous amount of volunteer work, which is done by the Python commnity before and during each PyCon.
PyCon is going as green as possible. This is why we decided to avoid distributing physical swag bags with items that are not really needed or wanted.
Popular PyCon t-shirts will only be available for purchase as part of the Community Supporter ticket to ensure they only reach those who really want them. Thanks to the higher price of t-shirts, we will be able to choose better quality material that will last longer and won’t end as another unnecessary waste.
Overall, our goal is to be as zero-waste as possible. Help us in our initiative and bring your reusable water bottles and coffee cups!
PyCon is not just for experienced programmers, our aim is to spread knowledge, promote the Python programming language and create a diverse, supportive community where all members can learn from each other and develop together.
That's why we offer those interested in programming who have no previous experience the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops where they learn the basics of Python.
