PyConline AU, 4–6 September 2020!

Published 10 June, 2020

We’re excited to officially announce the dates for PyConline AU 2020, which will be held as a virtual event on September 4-6 2020!

This year will be a little different compared to what we’re familiar with, and we’ll miss seeing all your faces in person. With that in mind, the organising team are extremely conscious of creating a fun, safe and educational environment where the Python community in Australia can come together online. PyConline AU won’t just be a playlist of talks—we want this to be a community event that everyone can participate in and enjoy.

Like you, we have lots of questions in our head about what PyConline AU will be like as a virtual event. We don’t yet have all the answers! That said, here’s a few guiding points that we’re focused on.

Alongside this news post, we’ll be doing an announcement stream tonight, 10 June at 7:30pm ACST (that’s UTC+0930). The video feed will be embedded shortly thereafter at the top of this announcement post.

Call for proposals (CFP)

PyConline AU’s call for proposals will open soon (we’re aiming for within a week) and be open for until the end of June. A separate, official announcement post will announce the Specialist Tracks, the CFP details, and how to submit your proposals. Between now and then, start thinking about what interesting topics you might like to present at PyConline AU in September.


While we no longer have a hefty conference centre expense, a high quality virtual event does not run without costs. We’re still seeking sponsorships for this year’s PyConline AU event. If your employer, or someone in your network is in a position to sponsor PyConline AU we’d love to have a chat about making it a truly impactful experience. Head on over to our sponsor page for more details.

Stay safe,
