Swiss Python Summit

The First Swiss Python Summit is Over!

The conference was a big success. We had 9 great talks and got a lot of positive feedback from the 114 attendees and speakers.

We'd like to thank all people that helped at the conference or presented a talk. Without you, the first Swiss Python conference would not have been possible!

Thanks also to the HSR that hosted us as well as our sponsors Divio, Beekeeper, Seantis and Webrepublic.

If you're interested in making another edition of the conference happen and would like to help, please contact us at info@python-summit.ch.

We will publish the recorded talks and the corresponding slides here in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

A Python Conference in Switzerland

The first Swiss Python conference will take place on February 5th, 2016 at HSR University of Applied Sciences in Rapperswil.

This summit is all about the programming language you love! Discover the wide field of Python applications, hear how others use the snake and meet Swiss Pythonistas. The conference is suited for all skill levels, from early beginners to expert developers.

History

After the nice experience of EuroPython 2015, a small group of enthusiasts came up with the idea of organizing a Swiss Python Conference.

As with software development, we think it's a good idea to start with something simple to prove that it can be done, a minimal viable product. We try to keep the costs and the organizational effort very low:

Program

The program has been published here.
