Announcing DjangoCon Africa 2023

Posted by Chaim Kirby on May 10, 2023

The African Django community is excited to announce the first DjangoCon Africa event, taking place this year in Zanzibar, Tanzania, from 6th - 11th November 2023. The first event since the global pandemic postponed our planning in 2020. We are thrilled to convene, support one another and give back to the African Python web community now that travel and health safety guidelines have normalized.

DjangoCon Africa 2023 will be held at the State University of Zanzibar where we have three meeting rooms, one auditorium, 15 minutes away from food and activities, and convenient access to students, professionals, and international travelers.

About DjangoCon Africa

DjangoCon Africa will include 3 days of single-track talks, 2 days of workshops and sprints, and one day of touring for international visitors.

The event will also include a Django Girls workshop to be held the weekend before DjangoCon Africa. To make the conference as inclusive as possible, the event will offer financial aid to members of under-represented communities in software to ensure they can also attend.

The CFP, which is open to all, will also be announced as soon as the month of June.


The success of DjangoCon Africa lies hugely in the sponsorship of organizations and individuals within the Python/Django community. We are appealing to organizations and individuals to help us make DjangoCon Africa possible by sponsoring the event.
