Last call for DjangoCon US Hotel Reservations
DjangoCon US 2023 is just about here!
While the conference isn’t until Oct 16-20, we’re sharing this now because discounted hotel rooms are filling up fast and will go away entirely on September 15th.
If you can’t make it in person this year, we also have online tickets: https://ti.to/defna/djangocon-us-2023.
All talks will be available online via the LoudSwarm platform, so you won’t miss any action. We have eleven exclusive talks for our online attendees, so you get more content. Online tickets are a great and affordable way to access the treasure trove of knowledge being shared without making a larger time or financial commitment.
Tutorials are virtual on October 8th
This year’s conference will have the tutorials the week before the conference. There wasn’t space at the venue to hold them in-person. You can find the full schedule on our website: https://2023.djangocon.us/tutorials/. This year, we are excited to have tutorials ranging from mastering test driven development to supercharging your Django development environment with VS Code and dev containers.
The In-person DjangoCon US Experience
On Monday, October 16th, we kick off with the main conference schedule packed full of talks. Again, that full schedule is live so that you can start planning which room you will be in during the event: https://2023.djangocon.us/talks/
Two particular talks we’re excited about are Natalia Bidart’s talk “Inside Out: My Journey of Understanding Inclusion” and Thibaud Colas’ talk “Django’s accessibility track record”.
After two days of talks, on Wednesday the 18th, we will have a full day’s worth of deep-dive sessions, ending with a career development panel. Finally, on Thursday and Friday, we will be hosting two full days of sprints where anyone can get involved making contributions to the Django ecosystem: https://2023.djangocon.us/sprints/. Note that sprints are included in the main ticket prices, but we do ask that you register ahead of time, so we know how many folks will be coming to each day’s session: https://ti.to/defna/djangocon-us-2023
Beyond The Talks and Sprints
There is so much happening at DjangoCon US beyond the main conference agenda. We will have board game sessions, impromptu meetups, breakout sessions for those interested in various topics, and so much more! All of the things that are traditionally very difficult to do online, we plan to facilitate in-person so that attendees get the most out of their conference experience.
Plus, you can explore Durham, North Carolina with the great people you meet here. We think you’ll find it a diverse, welcoming spot with lots to do within walking distance of the conference!
We are incredibly excited to see everyone online and in person. We hope that you will join us at this year’s conference!
