DjangoCon Europe 2015
2015's DjangoCon Europe will take place in Cardiff, Wales, from the 31st May to the 5th June, for six days of talks, tutorials and code. Here’s a snapshot of what's in store.
Six whole days
For the first time ever, we’re holding a six-day DjangoCon.
The event will begin with an open day. All sessions on the open day - talks and tutorials of various different kinds - will be free, and open to the public. (This follows the example of Django Weekend Cardiff, where the open day proved hugely successful.)
The open day will:
- help introduce Django to a wider audience
- give newer members of the community a headstart, to help them get the most from the following five days
There’ll be a DjangoGirls workshop on our open day, and lots more besides.
Two days of code
Following the three days of talks, we won’t just have two days of sprints: they will be two days of code: code sprints, code clinics and workshops. We want everyone to have a reason to stay on after the talks, and participate, whatever their level of experience.
All these sessions will be free of charge to conference attendees. Some of them will be worth the ticket price of the entire conference on their own.
We aim to put on a first-class technical conference. We also want the event to embody three very important values:
We aim to make DjangoCon Europe 2015 a milestone in the Django community's effort to improve diversity.
We want this DjangoCon to set the highest standards for accessibility, and to ensure that we do not inadvertently exclude anyone from participating fully in the event.
We’re sure you’ll enjoy the city and our venues, and we're looking forward to welcoming you in June. Here's some comprehensive information on how to get to Cardiff.
