Python Philippines

Who We Are / About Us

PythonPH is a non-stock, non-profit, volunteer-run organization dedicated to support and facilitate the growth of the community of Python programmers in the Philippines.

Our Aim:

  • to show that Python has something for everyone: from hobbyists, to students, to educators, to professionals.
  • to inspire Filipinos to excel in their craft through Python and Open Source.
  • to provide a safe space for discussing Python and relevant technologies

We believe that we create small dents of improvement in the PH Tech industry when we foster environments that inspire and motivate professionals to be technically competent and passionate about their craft.

Why Python?

We truly believe and support the impact and innovation that Python has brought in the whole technology industry as it continues to power systems, products, and services of companies such as Google, YouTube, NASA, Disney, Instagram, Disqus, Pinterest and Bitbucket.

Python is also used as a business solution for Web Development, Automation, Monitoring, Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cloud Computing, and more.

What We Do / Events

In June 31-July 1 2012, we held the first ever PyCon Philippines.

Today, we organize the yearly PyCon and also hold regular meet-ups, public python trainings and kaizend throughout the year.

Whether you're new to programming, an experienced practitioner, or just plain curious what this Python programming language is about, you're much welcome to join this community!

We organize the following events:

  • PyCon Philippines - The goal of the conference is to provide a venue where the Python programming language and surrounding technologies can be explored, discussed and exercised.

    We gather software engineers, programming enthusiasts, startup founders, corporate IT decision makers, students and IT educators in a 2-day event where we can collaborate and learn from each other.

  • Meetups - Regular meetups where professionals and enthusiasts share and talk about Python.

  • Public Python Trainings - Low-cost Python Trainings covering various topics.

  • Kaizend - A mastermind group and exclusive training program for core volunteers. This program is aimed to develop technically competent and well-rounded leaders to systematize succession plans for PythonPH.
