About PyCon APAC 2013


PyCon is a conference where Python users can meet and talk about the developments around Python and the Python community. All Pythonistas in the region get together to know more about various domains and meet people with diverse experience.

In 2013 we will host the 4th annual PyCon Asia Pacific (APAC). The first three events were hosted in Singapore, and it is our honor to host this year’s event for the first time in Japan.

The Year of Python ” will be the theme for PyCon APAC 2013. The PyCon JP team is organizing this year’s PyCon APAC but we will strive to provide interactive sessions where everyone can meet up with each other just as we had in previous PyCon JP events. With the expanding scope to the usual PyCon JP, we are also inviting more international spearkers and adding additional English sessions to provide a true region-wide conference experience.

We are also glad to announce that we are arranging tutorial sessions with some charge. We’ll post updates once we confirm the details.
