Code Breakfasts

Code breakfasts are PyData Festival’s workshop track. We’ll meet in the morning, and together with an expert in the field, we’ll do a hands-on session to build something cool and gain some new knowledge on the way.

Code breakfasts run from 09:00 to 10:30, and at the end of each session, the speaker will be available for additional questions. Also, this is a great moment to join up with others who attended and try to see if you can go a bit beyond the content of the breakfast itself and tackle some of the harder challenges the speaker discussed.

Diversity Scholarships

One of PyData’s goals is to increase awareness and excitement around opportunities for underrepresented groups in software engineering and data analytics. To increase diversity in scientific computing, our outreach program ranges from hosting workshops that introduce programming to young women to encouraging diversity in speakers at PyData.

For PyData Amsterdam 2020, we are offering scholarship opportunities to those from underrepresented groups who may otherwise be unable to attend the conference.

Please note scholarships do not cover travel and lodging costs. The deadline to apply is June 10th. Applicants who have been awarded a diversity scholarship will be informed by June 12th.

Apply for a diversity scholarship here!

Lunch chats

Lunch chats feature a wide range of different activities. This includes Preparation sessions for the sprints, Panel sessions, Interviews and Roundtable discussions.

Keep an eye out on the schedule for details.

Dinner talks

Tune in after work to hear about a variety of topics from a wide range of speakers. Dinner talks will be from 19:00 - 20:00 and each evening sees two presenters. After 20:00, the speakers will hang around to discuss their topics in more detail.


For the first time in its history, PyData Amsterdam will host Open Source Contribution Sprints. These will take place on Saturday, June 20th. We will bring together eager developers and maintainers of some of the libraries we all use and love to learn and do our share in contributing to open source development.

Our sprints are a day of intensive development on an open source project of your choice. It’s a time to come together, to share what you’ve learned during the conference with the people you met, and apply it to an open source project.

Who can participate?

You! All experience levels are welcome; sprints are an excellent opportunity to get connected with and start contributing to your favorite Python project. Participation in the sprints is free! We do ask you to sign up so we can make sure we have enough facilities in place to host everyone. You can express interest in the sprints when purchasing tickets.

How can I Prepare?

There will be several sessions in the “lunch chats” slot of the conference that can help you get up to speed with the tools and processes needed to start contributing. Keep an eye out on the schedule to find out when these events are happening.


PyData could not happen without the support of its amazing sponsors. Are you interested in becoming a sponsor? Contact us at [email protected]


How much are the tickets

The base price of a ticket is €30,-. Access to the code breakfast adds €15,- to the price and if your employer pays for the ticket another €15,- is added. In addition we offer sponsorship packages based on a minimum amount of tickets sold. If you buy 5 tickets in bulk, you’ll automatically be a bronze sponsor of the event, and for 10 tickets you’ll be a silver sponsor.

I’d like to sponsor the event, what are the options?

The easiest way to sponsor the event is to buy the above mentioned bulk tickets. There are however also other sponsor levels available. Reach out to [email protected] if you’re interested.

Will the sessions be recorded?

Yes! The sessions will be recorded and recordings will be made available to attendees throughout the event. Recordings of the talks will be made available to the public at a later date. Recordings of the workshops will only be made available to attendees who purchased workshop tickets.

What platform will you use for this event?

The sessions will be streamed using Zoom Webinars. Apart from that we’ll be using Discord as a back-channel for text and voice chat.

Are the code breakfasts the same as the workshops?


Why do you charge for a virtual event?

NumFOCUS is the non-profit organization that fiscally sponsors 33 Open Source Projects and organizes community-driven educational programs for users and developers of open source scientific tools. Donations from PyData conferences account for a significant portion of our annual operating budget and enable us to continue giving back to the open source community.

While there are no costs this year for a venue or catering, there are still costs associated with bringing the event online. We also need to continue paying fixed costs to keep NumFOCUS healthy so we can keep PyData alive, as well as continue supporting the open source community.

We hope you understand the difficult situation we are currently in and can support us during this time so that we can keep supporting you in the future.


PyData Amsterdam is organised by a team of extremely committed volunteers. Are you interested in helping out? Get in touch at [email protected] or come talk to us at a meetup.
