PyConES is the national Python conference
more relevant in Spain.
PyConES second edition will be held, after the first edition's success last year in Madrid, under the global event PyCon format. In this edition, the organization is by the hand of the Zaragoza Hackerspace, Dlabs, with the collaboration of the Python Spain association and the Python Zaragoza user group.
A hackerspace is a physical place where people who has diverse interests can get to know each other, socialize and collaborate. Dlabs gives us a space where we can meet, share knowledge and materials, creating some kind of open development laboratory. Right now, Zaragoza's hackerspace has about twenty members who will coordinate and organise this year's event, along with many other volunteers.
Zaragoza is the fifth city in Spain by size. It's enclaved halfway between Madrid and Barcelona, well served by road and high speed train (AVE). It counts with a good gastronomic, nightlife and hotel offer, which makes it the ideal city for holding big conferences.
PyConES 2013 was held at Madrid's Universidad Politecnica (UPM) in November 2013.
The conference had more than 20 sponsors, more than 300 attendees and almost 10.000 views of the talks in the next six months.
