Swiss Python Summit

Python Summit 2018 is Over

The 2018 edition of the Swiss Python Summit is over. We had the chance to watch 9 great talks from different fields, all having in common that they had some connection to the Python programming language.

Thanks to all helpers and also to the attendees, you all made this conference possible!

The slides and talk recordings will be uploaded over the next days to weeks. Please check out the recordings.

After the nice experience of EuroPython 2015, a small group of enthusiasts came up with the idea of organizing a Swiss Python Conference. After a few meetings and discussions, we organized a small, one-day, single-track and very-low-cost event. We expected around 50 people, but 130 signed up. It was a great success, so we decided to continue organizing the conference.

You can find program from previous years online:
