Four Conferences In Three Days
I'm performing or speaking at, participating in or attending four different conferences/conventions online between July 24th and 26th. You can join me at no cost for all of them!
I'm also curious to watch talks on power management, principles of digital autonomy, freelancing tools, an open, programmable virtual assistant, rescuscitating a GNOME app, measuring and improving a project's environmental impact, and making videos.
Register: for free! Watch live via BigBlueButton (in your web browser).
I unfortunately don't think I have time to attend the rest of the conference, but I'm looking forward to watching the videos of "Lessons from the Trenches: rewriting and re-releasing virtualenv" and "The Hidden Power of the Python Runtime".
Register: for free, for a sprint-only ticket! Please register by July 23rd. Participate via Discord and via Zoom or Jitsi (I'm not clear on whether the sprints will use Zoom or Jitsi).

When I tell people about grants they could get to help fund work on open source software projects, sometimes they are surprised because they didn't know such grants existed. I share:
- sample foundations and funders (such as Mozilla, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, NLNet, and Comcast) who want to fund open source software projects, and how much they're paying out
- a quick case study on how the Python Software Foundation got funding from Open Tech Fund to improve security, accessibility, and localization for PyPI
- key steps in figuring out a good project idea, budgeting, hiring, and submitting
- how the new Project Funding Working Group at the PSF can help you along the way
This year, all PyOhio talks are 5 or 10 minutes. I'm also interested in talks on PySpark, livestreaming, Flask, "How the Python Software Foundation Fared Through the Impact of the Pandemic", managing your finances, mapReduce, and underappreciated gems of the Python standard library.
Register: for free! Watch via YouTube. You don't have to register to watch the talks; PyOhio will stream them publicly over YouTube. You do have to register to participate in sprints and open spaces.
Please consider joining me! Probably not at all of them! That would be pretty difficult! I am curious how it will all work out myself!
