PyCon JP 2011

The Japanese Python community is proud to present the second semi-annual PyCon JP in Tokyo Japan.

PyCon provides a chance to join and communicate with users or developers using Python. PyCon JP is intended as a gathering for the Python community to inform and transmit ideas about the use and growth of the Python language.

The Japanese Python community held our first PyCon JP, "PyCon mini JP" (Japanese) in January 2011 to help grow community leaders and test the need for a Python conference in Japan. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response and success of the event, we have decided to continue with a semi annual PyCon JP conference.
