What is the Python Software Foundation? (Spanish)

Block 38 - 101
Date and time:
Saturday 10, 15:10
Manuel Kaufmann (Argentina)

We program in Python, we ask for money from the PSF, we talk about this foundation but ...

  • Do we know exactly what it does?
  • Who controls the fate of the language?
  • Does the PSF determine it?
  • What are the members doing?
  • Why is it so important?
  • Can I be a part of it?

We will give answers to all these questions!


The talk proposes a kind of forum where a main initial line is proposed on "What is the PSF and its role in the community" explaining its philosophy and purpose. Then, a set of questions are proposed by the speakers inviting the audience to eliminate their doubts about the function of the foundation, thus achieving a forum between speakers and the audience.

Finally, the roles that exist within the PSF are explained and the audience is invited to be part of the foundation.
