PyCon Australia and Linux Australia are very pleased to announce that
we're contributing to the travel assistance scheme of PyCon US, the
biggest Python event in the world. PyCon US is next being held in
Montréal, Canada in April.

This means that PyCon will be able to help fund the attendance of more
members of the Python community from Australia and New Zealand.

Financial assistance for PyCon is offered to help people who otherwise
couldn't afford to attend the conference, and is offered in the form
of travel subsidies, discounted or free registration, and

Basically, if you'll benefit from being at PyCon, or the Python
community will benefit from your attendance, then we want to make sure
you can make it.

For further details about the programme, and to apply for funding,
visit https://us.pycon.org/2014/assistance/

There's no extra process for qualifying for the extra funding that
we're putting up -- just note that you're from Australia or New
Zealand in your application.

Applications close on 1 January, 2014.

If you've got any further queries about the programme, or PyCon
Australia's involvement in it, send me an e-mail at chrisjrn at gmail.com
-- if I can't answer it, I'll make sure someone from PyCon US does!

We're looking forward to seeing a record number of Aussies and Kiwis
at PyCon in Montréal!
