The John Pinner Award

31st July 2018

Nominations for the 2018 John Pinner Award are open.

The John Pinner Award celebrates voluntary service to the Python community in the UK, and recognises those who freely contribute their time and effort for the good of the community.

Recipients of the award will be announced at PyCon UK in September.

Perhaps you can think of that person who quietly organises your local user group, runs workshops, mentors others online, or creates educational resources for others to re-use. It is the contributions of people like this who we'd like to celebrate through this award.

You can nominate any number of people and the nomination process is very simple. Full details can be found here.

Get nominating!

PyCon UK 2018 latest

30th July 2018

From the PyCon UK committee:

We've published the draft programme for PyCon UK 2018.

This will be firmed up over the coming days, and we still have to announce the keynote speakers we have lined up for the event.

In the meantime, our selection of speakers - by far the hardest we've ever had to make, taken from the nearly 250 proposals that came in - represents the breadth of interests in the Python community, and is aimed at a wide range of levels of technical expertise.

There are still plenty of opportunities to be part of the event, as an attendee or a sponsor - join us in Cardiff in September!
