Code of Conduct
We're committed to providing a safe and friendly environment for everyone to learn, meet, and enjoy the conference. All organizers, attendees, speakers and sponsors must follow the Code of Conduct.
Commitment to Diversity
It is a core aim of DjangoCon US 2016 to encourage diversity, enforce our Code of Conduct, and make our event as inclusive and accessible as possible. Read more in our diversity statement.
As part of our commitment to diversity, we have funds to meet the cost of tickets, travel, and accommodation for attendees who need financial support. Applications closed on April 25.
We're proud to offer complimentary child care for kids 18 months through 6 years old! More information on how to sign your child up coming soon.
We have speaker mentors available to help you before and after your talk is accepted! They can help you refine your proposal, organize your slides, and practice your talk.
Day 1 Orientation
Are you new to DjangoConUS or tech conferences in general? Are you worried you might feel out of place? Are you attending DjangoCon by yourself? If so, the Day 1 orientation is for you! We’ll help you get your bearings so you can have the BEST DjangoCon possible. More details coming in the blog.
Board Game Night
On Tuesday night, we'll be playing board games in Huntsman Hall at 6:00 pm on the 8th floor!
The DjangoCon US program features both novice talks for people just starting their journey into the world of development, as well as advanced talks for experienced developers.
We’re aiming to make this event accessible for everyone. Read more about how we’re working to make DjangoCon US accessible for everyone, and let us know if we’ve missed something.
We will provide a clearly-marked designated quiet room. This room is intended to be a calm and quiet place for anyone who needs to have a break from the bustle of the conference, for whatever reason.
We’ll have boards available so you can let people know if you’re recruiting new team members, or looking for a new position yourself!
We aim to meet all dietary requirements. You will be able to specify these when purchasing your ticket.
Lightning Talks (aka ⚡️Talks)
Lightning Talks are short (5-minute maximum) presentations. Signups for ⚡️Talks will be available at DjangoCon. If you submitted a talk, but it wasn't accepted, consider doing a ⚡️Talk version. Or, if you've never presented at a conference, a ⚡️Talk can be a great way to get started.
