About PyCon CZ
PyCon CZ is the Czech Republic edition of the well-known and valued PyCon conference devoted to the Free and Open Source Python programming language.
It is organized for the fifth time by passionate members of the Czech Python community, with cooperation and underwriting by Pyvec.org, a local non-profit organization that focuses on supporting the Python community in the Czech Republic.
The objective of PyCon CZ is to raise participants' qualifications, overall integration of the Python programmers' community in the Czech Republic and surrounding area, popularisation of new applications of the language as well as to spread good programming practices and exchange of experiences between professionals, novices, students and hobbyist Python programmers.
To get a better idea of what PyCon CZ is about, check out the short promotional video from the first year, or watch last year's keynotes from Van Lindberg, Karen M. Sandler, Sam Trojan, Flavio Percoco and Nick Lang.
Dolní oblast Vítkovice (DOV) is a national site of industrial heritage located in the centre of Ostrava. It includes extensive industrial ironworks with a former coal mine, coke ovens and blast furnace operations with exceptional technology flow and specialized machines as well as a unique collection
of industrial architecture.
The manufacturing complex closed down in the 19th century, but since then it was transformed into a unique educational, social and cultural centre. Its significance now reaches beyond the boundaries of the region.
DOV now includes attractions such as the Science and technology center, a multifunctional auditorium, and the Bolt Tower. See more info at the venue’s official website. (Use the language switcher for English.)
PyCon CZ will take place at Hlubina – the coal mine complex re-made into a cozy conference center. We're pretty excited about the place, and hope you'll be as well!
