PyCon NG is Here!!! All About PyCon Nigeria

Developers, pythonistas, everybody actually, I present to you PyCon Nigeria!!!!! Yes, everybody because everyone deserves to be at PyCon NG!

 
Now, what exactly is PyCon? PyCon is the largest gathering for the community that uses and develops the open-source Python programming language. PyCon is organized by the Python community for the community.It is a diverse conference dedicated to providing an enjoyable experience for everyone that attends.

Plans are in gear for a maiden Nigerian PyCon event, which in the traditional fashion has been dubbed PyCon NG. PyCon NG is the premier Python conference within the Nigerian space. Python is a powerful and widely used high level, open source computer programming language that lets you work quickly and integrate systems more effectively. It is suited for general-purpose programming.
This year, the event is scheduled to take place from Friday, 15th September to Saturday, 16th September, 2017. This conference follows in the customary fashion for users and enthusiasts of the Python programming language to convene for a featured-packed series of events where so much about the language is often showcased.
It is not unusual for a PyCon to draw international participation. Therefore, this event, as it is much anticipated by the growing Python community in Nigeria, will attract more than 200 professionals, enthusiasts and student delegates from Nigeria and around the world. It will be an avenue to learn about the latest developments and best practices in the Python ecosystem both locally and globally.

 

PyCon NG is a non-commercial event run entirely by volunteers dedicated to growing the Python developer community in Nigeria. Sponsor contributions help us keep the costs of attending the conference affordable for every intending participant. Profits are invested back into Nigerian Python and open source communities through our parent organisation, Python Software Community. A sponsorship brochure is available for interested sponsors; source it from our sponsorship team via sponsorship@pycon.ng
This premiere edition of PyCon NG is going to hold in Lagos, the exact venue will be communicated shortly. With more than 200 delegates, this will be Nigeria’s biggest Python event yet. Now is the perfect time to help contribute to this growing, vibrant developers’ community.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The 2 days are packed with various topics from introductory Python workshops, to more intermediate sessions that will cover topics in areas like web development frameworks, Data Science, Internet of Things, Data Centers, Community and more.

The Python Software Community (aka Python Nigeria) is the first formal and largest user-group in Nigeria. With new members coming on board almost everyday, the group has continued to grow and currently boasts of over 500 members.
Since inception in 2016, it has supported about 30 Django Girls events and several other Python events/programs in Nigeria, including PyData and Pyladies. In furtherance of her mission, she has done so in partnering with other organizations like the Carrington Youth Fellowship Initiative for the Smart Girls project and the Data Science Society of Nigeria for the Data Science Bootcamp.
Python Nigeria is recognized by the Python Software Foundation (PSF) and continues to receive backing from the global body. You can learn more about the community at pythonnigeria.org
