PyCon UK 2018 CFP closing soon

30th May 2018

The Call for Proposals for PyCon UK closes at midday on June 15th. There is always a surge of submissions just before the deadline, so to make life easier for the committee, please don't leave it until the last minute!

Read more about why you should submit a proposal, and advice about how to submit a proposal.

The conference will be at Cardiff City Hall, from 15th to 19th September. More details are on the conference website.


28th May 2018

There are still a few tickets left for PyLondinium, which takes place in London from 8th to 10th June.

The schedule is rich and varied, and we wish the organisers the very best.

Changes to the UK Python News mailing list

24th May 2018

The what:

  • We're closing the UK Python News mailing list and starting a new one, which will by operated by the UK Python Association.
  • We'd like you to sign up to the new one!
  • You can do so here.
  • You'll receive monthly emails with news about the UK Python community, including about PyCon UK.
  • You can unsubscribe at any time.
  • The mailing list is operated by MailChimp.
  • The UKPA will never share your contact details with anybody (apart from MailChimp).

The why:

  • We're doing this for two reasons:
    • GDPR (and specifically: we automatically signed up attendees to PyCon UK 2016 to this mailing list, and shouldn't have done (sorry)).
    • We're slowly transferring the assets of the PyCon UK Society Ltd to the UK Python Association, and we're not quite sure of the best way to transfer a mailing list. You can read more about the UKPA here.

PyCon UK 2018

1st May 2018

This year's PyCon UK will be held once again at Cardiff City Hall, 15th to 19th September.

Tickets are on sale now.

The Call for Proposals is open.

We're taking applications for financial assistance.

The website has information about travel and accommodation, with discounts available on both.

We'll have a free crèche, a live speech-to-text service, mobility and accessibility support, and more.

As well as a full programme of talks and workshops, we have a number of social and evening sessions planned.

We're also seeking commercial sponsorship. Please get in touch if you think you can help, because the conference only runs each year with the generous support it receives from its sponsors.

As usual, the conference is run by a committee of volunteers, on behalf of the Python community, and once again, we aim to make it the very best possible experience for our attendees.

If you do anything at all with Python, whatever your level of experience, there'll be a lot at PyCon UK for you.
