Start from our humble beginnings to discover the events that made our community what it is today.
Who are we?
We're a large community focused around the Python programming language. We believe anyone can learn to code, and are very dedicated to helping novice developers take their first steps into the world of programming. We also attract a lot of expert developers who are seeking friendships, collaborators, and who wish to hone their craft by teaching and getting involved in the community.
We organise regular community events such as code jams, open-source hackathons, seasonal events, and community challenges. Through our sponsorships and donations, many of our events even have prizes to win!
You can find help with most Python-related problems in one of our help channels. Our staff of over 90 dedicated expert Helpers are available around the clock in every timezone. Whether you're looking to learn the language or working on a complex project, we've got someone who can help you if you get stuck.
A Discord bot started as a community project for Hacktoberfest 2018, later evolved to an introductory project for aspiring new developers starting out with open source development.
