Python Language Summit at PyCon US 2024 in Pittsburgh

We’re excited to announce that the signups for the Python Language Summit at PyCon US 2024 are now open.

Full details at:

Just like in Salt Lake City, we are doing the Summit as an in-person event. We will be following the health and safety guidelines of the wider conference.


When: Wednesday, May 15, 2024 at 09:00am

Where: David L. Lawrence Convention Center, room TBD

Request to attend: (closes March 31st, 2024 AoE)

Who can attend

We welcome Python core developers and triage team members, active contributors to CPython and alternative Python implementations, and other community members with a topic to discuss with core developers.

Who can propose a discussion topic

If you have discussion items; seeking consensus; awaiting community feedback on a PEP; needing help with your core dev work; or have specific questions that need answers from core developers, please submit a proposal. According to feedback, our audience prefers more discussions and shorter talks.

In your proposal, please include the following:

  • why is this topic relevant to the core developers

  • what is needed from core developers out of this topic

Do I need to be registered to PyCon US to attend the Language Summit?

Yes, this is so that you receive a badge and catering during the day. If you only want to attend the Language Summit portion and not the rest of the conference, then we can provide you with a voucher that allows you to be registered at PyCon US. This way you’ll be in the system. However, we do recommend that you be registered for the full PyCon US. There are amazing talks and keynotes on the schedule that you wouldn’t want to miss.

How can I learn what’s happening at the event?

A detailed summary of the event will be published on the Python Software Foundation Blog. This year the event will be covered by @sethmlarson, the Security Developer in Residence at the Python Software Foundation.

Is this event recorded? Can I watch the live stream?

No, there will be no recording and no live stream available. If you’d like to participate in discussions, please sign up to attend. If you’d like to listen in, please wait for Seth’s blog posts after the Summit.

I need to ask a private question

Sure thing! You can message any of us privately here on Discourse and we’ll get you sorted.

We hope you have a great event!

Your Language Summit cat herding team,

@emily & @ambv
