EuroPython 2011, the largest European conference for the Python Community

2011 May 24

EuroPython is the largest European conference for the Python community, and in the following two years the conference will be held in Florence, Italy!

The conference will take place from Sunday June 20th to Sunday June 26th. The chosen location is Mediterraneo Conference Centre in Lungarno del Tempio, 44 – near the beautiful Piazza Santa Croce in the heart of Florence’s old city centre.

EuroPython Agenda will be as below:

  • June 20th: Opening day of the conference. In the morning the keynote session will be held, with special guests soon to be announced.
  • June 20th to 24th: Regular conference, with up to 5 parallel tracks from morning to evening, and 2 parallel tracks for hands-on trainings.
  • June 25/26th: Coding Sprint. Two full days of quick hacking on Python core and libraries, with the guide of experienced developers.

Italian Track

Italy is home to a vibrant Python community that gathers together each year at the local PyCon Italia event (up to 400 delegates!). To acknowledge this reality in EuroPython and to encourage Italian pythoneers who suffer from the language barrier, we will hold an additional Italian track at EuroPython, containg only talks delivered in Italian.
