PyCon Taiwan invites three speakers to give keynote speeches during the two-day conference. Each keynote speaker is considered one of the most important figures in their respective fields. They share their professional experience and the image of their domain’s future.
More information about keynotes can be found on the Keynotes page.
The two conference days are packed with talks about Python by speakers from Taiwan and around the world. The talks will be either 30- or 15-minute long. Three tracks of talks will be delivered simultaneously, all with different topics and difficulties. We suggest you to make a schedule beforehand, and choose what you want ot listen based on your interests. Many people take notes on the program schedule before the meeting so they don’t run to wrong places.
More information about talk can be found on the Talks page.
Tutorial are events held as part of the main conference, but attendees need to register separately in order to join. They are 1.5 hours events held to help participants better understand talks during the conference, or get their hands on more Python applications.
More information about tutorials can be found on the Tutorials page.
Lightning talks are held at the end of each conference day. It’s known for its fast-paced nature that allows only 5 minutes for each talk, including setup. If you would like to give a lightning talk, please write down your name and the subject on a piece of paper, and put it into the jar near the registration desk. We will announce in each noon the list of talks for the day.
Open Spaces are held both in parallel with the main conference, and during a dedicated slot at the three day of the conference. The schedule is created just-in-time by the attendees. If you would like to host an Open Space event, please use an Open Space card found in your goodies bag, fill it and pin it on the Open Space board.

Job Fair is a career expo for Python developers. During the Job Fair session, our sponsors will take turns introduce themselves on the stage and promote their job openings. For attendees that are looking for a career, this is a great opportunity for you to interact with the sponsors or submit your rèsumè!
The community track is a new event in PyCon TW. We choose the talks with specific topics and package them into the same session. We'll leave the conference rooms and go to characteristic cafes, exhibition spaces, and even monuments so that the attendees and speakers can interact with each other more comfortably and closely.
In short, the "community track" is to build strong connections between attendees, speakers, sponsors, and communities!
The community track will take place in the afternoon of day 2 (9/6), with a duration of 3 hours, including 90-minute talks arranged by PyCon Taiwan.
More information about Community Track can be found on the Community Track page.
Sprints are held out of the main conference. A sprint event gathers open source project owners, contributors, and people who wants to contribute but trying to find a place to start. During a sprint, project hosts bring their unresolved issues or new features under development and share with everyone. You can join a project of your choice, or bring your own project here!
For those who already knows fundamentals of Python and wants to participate open source projects, but doesn't know where to start, sprints are great opportunities to get yourself involved! As for project hosts, this is a great chance for you to find people with similar interests, having face-to-face interactions with contributors, and getting new contributors to your project's development! Be prepared to get your hands dirty!
More information about Sprints can be found on the Sprints page.
PyNight is an extension to the BoF event we held in previous years. This year's event is expanded to provide a more diverse occasion for the community. It consists of both “music” and “communication” parts. During the music event, the protagonist is a group of versatile friends from the community, bringing their carefully prepared music. In the community event, you are the protagonist! No matter what your thoughts, you can find like-minded friends here; the subject without any restrictions, as long as you are interested, everything is welcome.
