2018 will be the biggest PyCon we have ever hosted in Singapore. We have more keynote speakers, more scheduled talks, more workshops and more side-events (EDU-Track and Young Coder's Workshop) than ever before!
It goes without saying that this would not have been possible without the overwhelming support that we have gotten from our sponsors. Leading up to the conference, all of our sponsors have been extremely friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about the event and as a direct result of their generous support, this year's conference has maintained the ticket prices of recent years and is probably one of the most affordable tech conferences of this calibre in the region.
We do hope that you take some time during our three conference days and get to know our sponsors more. Most of them will be present with a booth, representing their companies with some of their key-staff, eager to answer your questions, have some smalltalk and simply and grow closer as a community.
