For the Python enthusiasts on these lists, I’m signal boosting this
message with info on PyCon dev sprints and financial assistance for the
conference from a former Wikimedia colleague.
I plan to attend PyCon this year and am also hoping to figure out
setting up a development sprint around some Wikimedia Cloud Services and

I wanted to mention - feel free to pass this on publicly and in personal
invitations - that PyCon North America, mid-April in Pennsylvania,
offers financial assistance to people who would like to attend:
The deadline for requesting financial assistance is 31 January.
PyCon loves to cross-pollinate with other free and open source
movements, and I know there are many Python developers in Wikimedia
tech. If Wikimedians want to use the April 20-23 in-person sprints
<https://us.pycon.org/2020/events/sprints/> (will be editable soon)
to work on Wikimedia-related Python tools together, that would be cool!
