PyCon SK posponed to June 2021

In early March we took the difficult decision to postpone PyCon SK. To minimize the potential for COVID-19 community spread, we decided to act swiftly and responsibly, even before the authorities banned large gatherings. In the past few days, we have been faced with a similar situation and, after discussions with many of you, we are postponing PyCon SK to June 2021. We'll announce the exact date soon.

PyCon SK will be postponed.

COVID-19 virus is spreading across the Europe and unfortunately Slovakia is no exception.

We have monitored the situation closely and we have been discussing with the Public Health Authority and being advice to postpone the conference. We prepared number of proactive measures, but we are not able to guarantee health and safety of our attendees. We have considered the option to do the PyCon SK online, but we believe that the spirit of the community is by getting together.

We have made a responsible decision to postpone PyCon SK to later date. Conference will happen in September 2020.

We do apologize for the trouble and we hope you'll understand our decision. We do hope our decision will not cause you too much inconvenience.

Thank you for your support and look forward to the September 2020 meeting.
