The annual Python programming conference for professionals, entrepreneurs, scientists, academics and students.

Health and safety at PyCon Namibia

In 2020, PyCon NA was one of the very last PyCons to take place as planned before the COVID pandemic struck. In 2021, we held an online edition. In 2022, we took a break.

For 2023, we need all attendees to help us make this a safe event for everyone. Please take note of our health and safety policy.
