Open Spaces

What are Open Spaces?

Open spaces are a way for people to come together to talk about topics, ideas or whatever they want. Any subject that two or more attendees want to talk about is a candidate for an Open Space.

How do I participate in an Open Spaces?

It's pretty easy: just show up :)

During PyCon, there will be an Open Space board somewhere near the registration desk. The board acts as a time table for all the Open Spaces, so you know where and when to go for the Open Spaces you're interested in. If a topic is not listed yet, find an open time slot and add it! 

Where and when are the Open Spaces?

The Open Spaces are in a set of of dedicated rooms(2nd floor) during all two of the conference days (Saturday and Sunday). Specifically, they are in the following rooms

  • 204
  • 205
  • 206
  • 209
  • 210
  • 211

How do I host Open Spaces?

There will be an Sticky Note near the Open Space Board. Just fill in the name and a short description of your Open space, and then pin your note on the Open Space board in the room and time slot you want.
