Schedule is live 🗓️

The schedule for PyCascades 2023 is now live! Check it out on our website and see when your favorite talks are happening. We have two days stuffed with awesome subjects, but don't forget that we have a social on Friday the 17th and sprints following the conference on the 20th.

Help PyCascades Through Sponsorship 🫶

A hybrid conference supporting in-person and remote developers requires a significant budget. Here are a few reasons why your organization would benefit from supporting PyCascades:

  • Recruiting new talent ranging from intermediate-senior Python developers and engineers, Open source Maintainers and Community builders, and university and bootcamp graduates
  • Building brand awareness and relationships in the Python and Open Source community
  • Supporting professional development for your technical and non-technical teams
  • Empowering the West Coast Python community and adjacent PyCon community
  • Receiving a corporate tax benefit for your sponsorship, if applicable, as the Python Software Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
  • Supporting the development of Python language and Open Source community, which is largely run and maintained by volunteers around the globe
  • Attending an in-person conference with a COVID / Health Safety policy that prioritizes the health safety of all our attendees, speakers, organizers, volunteers, vendors and sponsors

If you aren't sure how to pitch the idea to your company, our team is here to help! Contact for assistance. Here are some points you can use when discussing sponsorship with your company:

  • PyCascades is a regional PyCon in the Pacific Northwest that started in Vancouver, BC back in 2018, and has since hosted in-person events in Seattle, WA and Portland, OR
  • Our organizer team includes members of the Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland Python user groups, and our previous years of PyCascades attendees and speakers are from Canada and USA (East coast / West coast) and our Europe, India, and Asia-based Python communities.
  • Most sponsors fund this sponsorship either out of their marketing budget or recruiting budget, depending on their goals for sponsorship, and all of our events have a legal tax-deductible status, so you may be eligible to receive a tax deductible. We are a part of the Python Software Foundation, which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit
  • The conference program is usually focused on helping new speakers present new python topics, or speaking for the first time. You can also view our previously recorded talks on Youtube

Lead a Sprint 👩‍💻

Sprints are back at PyCascades this year and we hope to pull you in on our enthusiasm for Open Source!

What are sprints and why should you be excited? Sprints are a way for project maintainers to connect with contributors to help tackle issues and develop together (see the projects from last year).

Are you a maintainer of an open source project, or know someone who is? Please fill out our interest form or send us an email at, we'd love to have your project at PyCascades!
