> Hello Leaders:
>> PYCON 2016 <https://us.pycon.org/2016/> is coming to the Rose City in
>> Portland, Oregon on May 28th - June 5th!
>> OWASP Developer Survey ranked PyCon #2 (*see survey attached*)
>> *Opportunities to attend in behalf of OWASP
>> <https://docs.google.com/a/owasp.org/spreadsheets/d/199PCrGLGuzAfxCSHdD-KpmT6ypSn01Wxqwq0R6y1blQ/edit?usp=sharing> *
> *Sign-up Today!
>> *PyCon 2016 <https://us.pycon.org/2016/> has offered us the option
>> to participate and contribute to their Open Spaces
>> <https://us.pycon.org/2016/events/open-spaces/> and Sprints
>> <https://us.pycon.org/2016/community/sprints/>. *
>> *Open Spaces*
>> Open spaces are a way for people to come together to talk about topics,
>> ideas, or whatever they like. They offer groups the ability to self-gather,
>> self-define, and self-organize in a way that often doesn’t happen anywhere
>> else at PyCon. Any subject that two or more attendees would like to talk
>> about is a candidate for an Open Space.
>> *How Do I Participate In An Open Space?*
>> *It's pretty easy: Just show up :)*
>> During PyCon, there will be Open Spaces boards somewhere near the
>> registration desk. The boards acts as a time table for all the Open Spaces,
>> so you know where and when to go for the Open Spaces you're interested in.
>> If a topic is not listed yet, find an open time slot and add it! Open
>> Spaces topic cards are included in the goodie bag you receive at
>> What Open Spaces Are There?
>> There are Open Spaces on many subjects a bunch of PyCon attendees would
>> like to discuss. Since the PyCon attendees are a diverse bunch, so are the
>> Open Spaces. In past years, we've had a mani/pedi party, a feminist hacking
>> space, an AcroYoga space, and a board games room. There's also plenty of
>> the usual suspects of technical subjects, from computer security to your
>> favorite Python project to professional occupations like DevOps.
>> Where And When Are The Open Spaces?
>> The Open Spaces are in a set of of dedicated rooms during all three of
>> the conference days (Monday 5/30, Tuesday 5/31, Wednesday 6/1). The rooms
>> may be needed for other events during portions of some days; please consult
>> the Open Spaces boards for the final word on what's going on where.
>> *How Do I Host An Open Space?*
>> For PyCon 2016, we will be using the Open Space cards that were
>> re-introduced a few years back. These are small postcard sized cards with a
>> short explanation of what Open Spaces are. The back side of that card is
>> for hosting Open Spaces. Just fill in the name and a short description of
>> your Open Space, and then pin your card on the Open Space board in the room
>> and time slot you want. It’s also a great idea to add your Twitter handle
>> to the card in case anyone interested in attending your Open Space has a
>> question or would like to contact you about it. The cards will be made
>> available in the goodie bag which you will receive at registration. Extra
>> cards will be available at the Open Spaces boards. In order to promote your
>> Open Space we encourage you to tweet about it and use the hashtag
>> #PyConOpenSpaces to make sure people see your tweets.
>> *Planned Open Spaces*
>> If you have an idea for an Open Space, and a time when you want to meet,
>> list it here on this page. It's also useful to add an approximate time slot
>> if you have any preferences, so that attendees know where to look for your
>> Open Space on the Open Spaces boards.
>> *Development Sprints*
>> *Thursday, June 2nd 2016 – Sunday, June 5th 2016*
>> Development sprints are a key part of PyCon, and a chance for the
>> contributors to open-source projects to get together face-to-face for up to
>> four days of intensive learning, development and camaraderie. Newbies sit
>> with gurus, go out for lunch and dinner together, and have a great time
>> while advancing their project.
>> What's New with the Sprints by Naomi Ceder
>> What are development sprints & why you should attend! by Kushal Das
>> What's so special about Sprints? by Naomi Ceder
>> What's A Sprint?
>> Come for PyCon, stay for the sprints!
>> PyCon Development Sprints are four days of intensive learning and
>> development on an open source project of your choice, in a team
>> environment. It's a time to come together with colleagues, old and new, to
>> share what you've learned and apply it to an open source project.
>> In the crucible of a sprint room, teaming with both focus and humor, it's
>> a time to test, fix bugs, add new features, and improve documentation. And
>> it's a time to network, make friends, and build relationships that go
>> beyond the conference.
>> PyCon provides the space and infrastructure (network, power, tables &
>> chairs); you bring your skills, humanity, and brainpower (oh! and don't
>> forget your computer).
>> Please sign up on the PyCon 2016 Sign Up Sheet
>> you are interested in attending in behalf of OWASP.
Let me or Kelly know if you need additional details.
