FAQ

PyData Global

I’d like to sponsor the event, what are the options?

Reach out to [email protected] if you’re interested in sponsoring our event. We have opportunities to sponsor including bulk ticket sales and NumFOCUS corporate sponsorships.

Will the sessions be recorded?

Yes! The sessions will be recorded and recordings will be made available to attendees throughout the event. Details on the talks and tutorials being available to the public will come soon.

What platform will you use for this event?

We are yet to announce specific technologies for the event.

Where do I buy tickets? What are the prices?

Please check out the tickets page.

Why charge attendees for a virtual event?

NumFOCUS is the non-profit organization that fiscally sponsors 33 Open Source Projects and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools. Donations from PyData conferences account for a significant portion of our annual operating budget and enable us to continue giving back to the open source community.

While there are no costs this year for a venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. We also need to continue paying fixed costs to keep NumFOCUS healthy so we can keep PyData alive, as well as continue supporting the open source community.

We hope you understand the difficult situation we are currently in and can support us during this time so that we can keep supporting you in the future.

What’s the conference’s hashtag?

Great question. #PyDataGlobal2020.
