300 Pythonistas Attend Six Feet Up’s 3rd Annual Python Web Conference

300 Pythonistas Attend Six Feet Up’s 3rd Annual Python Web Conference

In a virtual world where Zoom fatigue has fewer people registering for — and finding value in — online events, more than 300 people from 41 countries and 21 time zones attended the 3rd annual Python Web Conference, the most in-depth Python conference for web developers. Six Feet Up, the conference organizer, and JetBrains, the event’s Diamond Sponsor, saw a 12% increase in 2021 attendance compared to 2020.

The five-day international conference, hosted virtually on LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up from March 22-26, 2021, featured 55 talks and five tutorials across four daily tracks: AppDev, PyData, Cloud and Culture.

According to attendees and sponsors alike, highlights from this year’s event included:

  • the new “Culture” track featuring soft-skill topics like techniques for building and leading a great dev team, tools for hosting more productive meetings, tips for working from home, and tech tutorials including a deep dive into the .git folder;

  • meaningful engagements across the Python community thanks to:
    • Face2Face — an interactive feature, exclusive to LoudSwarm by Six Feet Up, that recreates the experience of attendees approaching a speaker at the podium at the end of an in-person talk via video conference,
    • end-of-day socials hosted via Zoom break-out rooms and custom-built Gather.town events, and
    • Slack channels that will keep Pythonistas talking until the 2022 Python Web Conference takes place (March 21-25, 2022);
  • physical swag bags complete with pour-over coffee, microfiber cloths, t-shirts, name badges and more; and

  • a refined schedule featuring five half days compared to four full days in 2020 — a big hit for the conference’s large European audience.


2021 Presentations

Top names in the Python community — including speakers from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Anvil, CapitalOne, IBM, JetBrains, MongoDB, Red Hat, Snyk and more — attracted a wide range of participants from beginners to senior-level executives.

This year’s presentations provided valuable insights into the future of Python, its tech culture, and how attendees can continue contributing to the language.
