PyCon 2016

PyCon is the largest annual gathering for the community using and developing the open-source Python programming language. PyCon is organized by the Python community for the community. We try to keep registration far cheaper than most comparable technology conferences, to make PyCon accessible to the widest group possible. PyCon is a diverse conference dedicated to providing an enjoyable experience to everyone. Our code of conduct is intended to help everyone maintain the PyCon spirit. We thank all attendees and staff for observing it.


PyCon 2016


  • Tutorial Days May 28 & May 29
  • Conference Days May 30 - June 1

Sprint Team


Listed below are the hotels with which PyCon has negotiated discount rates. These conference rates are only available to attendees of the PyCon conference who make reservations through our conference registration site.

The hotels this year vary in distance from the convention center:

The Hotel Eastlund is about a 5-minute walk from the venue.

The Crowne Plaza, Courtyard Mariott, and DoubleTree are another block or two away, within a 10-minute walk of the conference center.

Everyone that is staying at a conference hotel (booked through the conference website) will get a complimentary week-long ticket for the TriMet public transportation system in Portland. These tickets will be distributed at registration when you pick up your badge.
