Good news, everyone!
Extremely exciting news, actually. We’re thrilled to announce that the first annual Florida PyCon has been generously sponsored by The Python Software Foundation!
The Python Software Foundation is a national nonprofit devoted to supporting the growth and improvement of the Python language. From their mission statement page:
The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers. in their own words:
The mission of the Python Software Foundation is to promote, protect, and advance the Python programming language, and to support and facilitate the growth of a diverse and international community of Python programmers. The majority of the PSF’s work is focused on empowering and supporting people within the Python community. The PSF has active grant programs that support sprints, conferences, meet ups, user groups, and Python development efforts all over the world. In addition, the PSF underwrites and runs PyCon US, the primary Python community conference. Being part of the PSF means being part of the Python community. Recently we changed the PSF to an open membership organization, so that everyone who uses and supports Python can join. To learn more, visit https://www.python.org/psf/membership.
An excellent organization with an awesome mission, if you love python you should take a minute to learn more about the PSF and how you can get involved!
The FLPY team would like to thank the Python Software Foundation for their generous donation, as well as for some rad stickers (collect them all!). The first annual Florida PyCon would not be possible without their support.
