PyDX

A community-driven Python conference for the Pacific Northwest

October 1 and 2, 2016
White Stag Block, Portland, Oregon

Why PyDX?

PyDX 2016 is your opportunity to reach out to the Python community in the Pacific Northwest. Last year, 150 attendees joined us to celebrate the local Python community. We expect to grow to 200 attendees in 2016.

Our attendees range from experienced programmers working with Python professionally to newer programmers just joining the community — a few attendees made their very first pull requests ever at PyDX 2015! As a community-run conference, we rely on sponsorship to make PyDX affordable and accessible for local developers. This is an opportunity for you to:

Connect with local Python developers
Bring new programmers to Python
Build the local Python ecosystem

Why PyDX, Given PyCon?

We’re glad to welcome PyCon to Portland for 2016 and 2017! Having this sort of large scale conference come to the Pacific Northwest is a testament to the active Python community we have locally.

PyDX is a very different event, though: we’re purely celebrating the local Python community. Not only do we price tickets to be accessible to anyone who wants to attend, but even our sponsors are drawn from local Pythonistas who want see the benefit of talking about what’s happening locally.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Please note: All sponsorship tiers include one ticket to PyDX. We want to see you at the conference! If your organization plans to bring more than one attendee, please let us know and we’ll provide you with a discount based on the number of tickets.

Scholarship — $200

Cover the cost of a ticket, as well as transportation and other incidental costs of attendance, for an attendee who couldn’t come otherwise. Organizations able to do so are encouraged to sponsor multiple scholarships.

Our scholarship program gave away 11 scholarships in 2015 and had to turn away applicants. We’d like to double the number of scholarships we give away in 2016.

Please note, however, that we will not put any additional expectations on scholarship recipients (such as visiting a sponsor’s office).
