No PyCon for me this year

Thursday 5 January 2017

2017 will be different for me in one specific way: I won't be attending PyCon. I've been to ten in a row:

Ten consecutive PyCon badges

This year, Open edX con is in Madrid two days later after PyCon, actually overlapping with the sprints. I'm not a good enough traveler to do both. Crossing nine timezones is not something to be taken lightly.

I'll miss the usual love-fest at PyCon, but after ten in a row, it should be OK to miss one. I can say that now, but probably in May I will feel like I am missing the party. Maybe I really will watch talks on video for a change.

I usually would be working on a presentation to give. I like making presentations, but it is a lot of work. This spring I'll have that time back.

In any case, this will be a new way to experience the Python community. See you all in 2018 in Cleveland!

I'm amazed that you still have all the badges! :-)
