Savouring Python in the Heart of Hamburg!

Last November, we savoured another slice of our favourite digital delicacy at the latest Python Pizza Hamburg! Held at New Work SE, Strandkai, the event marked a delightful return to a hybrid format, melding the best of both in-person and remote conference attendance.

A Micro Conference with Mega Impact

Python Pizza, a tradition since Naples 2017, continues to celebrate the Python community's zest for coding and, of course, pizza. With a series of electrifying 10-minute talks, the event showcased a diverse array of topics, from the intergalactic inspirations in open source to practical tips on making data sparkle with Streamlit.

Galactic Gatherings and Data Dazzlers

Highlights included the keynote on "Galactic Gathering: Forging Interdisciplinary Fellowship in Open Source" by Paolma Oliveira, setting the stage for a day of interdisciplinary exploration. Then a rich array of talks followed providing both seasoned developers and newcomers with valuable insights.

A Slice of Community Spirit

True to Python Pizza's ethos, we enjoyed plenty of time for networking and community bonding - all seasoned with humor and heartfelt stories and fueled by Pizza and Tiramisu. The event's hybrid nature meant that, whether online or in-person, everyone got a taste of the unique Python Pizza spirit.

Navigating Challenges with Grace

This year, we also faced the challenge of a Deutsche Bahn strike, but our community's resilience and adaptability shone through. We tweaked schedules and made necessary adjustments to ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience for all. With attendees coming from all around, including outside of Germany, we recognise the effort and dedication of attendees despite these unforeseen travel complications.

A Code of Respect and Inclusion

Our commitment to a safe, inclusive, and harassment-free experience for everyone was underscored by our comprehensive Code of Conduct. This commitment is the crust that holds our event together, ensuring a welcoming space for all Python enthusiasts.

We also want to thank our sponsors the Python Software Verband, the EuroPython Society, the Python Software Verband for enabling us to run this hybrid event.
